Is Chin Filler for Men? Yes – Let’s Break Down Your Options:

Jawline and chin fillers can help men:

  • Achieve a more chiseled looking or square-looking jawline
  • Add bulk to a “weak chin” or narrow jawline
  • Create the appearance of a firmer-looking chin or jawline
  • Add more symmetry or balance to the appearance of the facial structure
  • Make a double chin look less noticeable
  • Visually fix any asymmetry in the chin or jawline
  • Reduce age-related jowls, especially if combined with another treatment
  • Make the face look a little more youthful since the filler restores some of the fullness associated with youth
  • Enhance the existing bone structure

What to Expect with Chin Filler for Men

Cosmetic injectables typically last for six to 12 months. It varies a little by the individual. To maintain results after this time frame, another injection is required.

You can help maintain the full life of your jaw filler by:

  • Avoid UV light and protect your skin from the sun with a broad-spectrum sunscreen that blocks both UVA and UVB light
  • Take care of your skin and moisturize daily
  • Drink plenty of water and stay hydrated
  • Eat a healthy diet and maintain a healthy weight
  • Reduce stress and get enough sleep.

Chin and jawline fillers typically take around 30 minutes, depending on the number of injection sites. The specific injection sites are customized to you and your aesthetic goals. Your provider will talk you through it, show some examples, and maybe even use imaging simulations to show you what is possible. 

Unlike surgical interventions, you experience no downtime. You will need to adjust your routine for several hours slightly, but you will not need to take time off for recovery. For example, you may need to avoid vigorous exercise for the rest of the day (workout before your injection treatment if it isn’t a rest day).

People sometimes experience side effects after an injection. They vary a little by the individual; some of the most common side effects include:

  • Temporary swelling at the injection site
  • Redness
  • Mild itching
  • Temporary discomfort
  • Pimple or acne eruptions

Be sure to talk with your provider about any health issues, allergies, and medications you take, as sometimes they can increase the likelihood of an adverse reaction.

To ensure the best results, avoid drinking alcohol for a couple of days before your injections and for a day or so afterward. Also, temporarily stop using hair removal products (including waxing or tweezing) and skincare products that irritate the skin (including exfoliants and retinol). During your consultation, be sure to ask your provider what to do to best prepare.

We use thicker FDA-approved fillers that help support the structure of the chin and jawline. Part of the art of injectables is choosing the right product for the job and carefully selecting the precise injection site.

Combining Treatments for Bespoke Results

Your face is unique, so we customize your injectable treatment for you. Some people see their desired results through a combination of treatments.

For example, let’s imagine a man who lost weight and worked hard to get in shape. Despite losing weight, he still has a bit of a double chin because his chin naturally isn’t very prominent. He wants his face to look a little more sculpted to match his sculpted body. A combination of a targeted fat reduction treatment like CoolSculpting® might help shed that stubborn fat under the chin, while a filler adds a subtle amount of bulk and shape to the chin or jawline. 

Friends and colleagues notice he looks more fit and chiseled, but the results are subtle enough that people assume the look is due to his workout and nutrition changes.

However, another man may find that a combination of chin fillers and cheek fillers gives him the look he associates with strength and masculinity. Really there is no one-size-fits-all. Some may be satisfied with one injection, while others may be happier with their results from a package of treatments.

Some men who want a more sculpted chin are a little apprehensive about looking like they “had work done.” Perhaps they noticed celebrities or influencers with very dramatic-looking fillers, resulting in an exaggerated or even fake look. People often comment on injectables and other cosmetic procedures when the look is very obvious or even extreme. Yet so many people have injectables done that subtly improve or enhance their appearance. 

Remember, for these celebrities, looking a certain way is often part of their job. A more obvious look may suit their goals and needs, but that doesn’t mean your injectables would look the same.

Today’s injectables can look natural and subtle or more obvious and dramatic. This just depends on the look you seek. Be honest about your goals, hopes, and concerns. Your provider can help you understand what results you may see and how they can help you achieve your desired look.
