4 Ways to Get A Smoother and Slimmer Jawline

When you meet someone, the face is one of the features that you’ll notice first. Some people think that having a chiselled or slimmer jawline is considered attractive.

While many women believe that having a slimmer jawline will make your face appear more feminine and cute, some men believe that a strong jawline makes them look more masculine.

There are ways you can do to achieve a smoother and slimmer jawline. I have listed 4 methods that you can try, starting with the non-invasive and up until the highly invasive methods. 

Exercise

Exercise is the most non-invasive method. Losing weight is one of the keys to achieving a slimmer jaw, and cardio exercises can help you with that.

Aside from your jaw, exercising can also improve your overall health. Killing two birds with one stone!

Ultherapy

Ultherapy can lift and tighten your jaw, making it appear slimmer and defined. The device works by using sound waves to stimulate your collagen production, and the heat from this device tightens your collagen[1].

This procedure is also non-invasive. There is no downtime, and you can go back to your routine after you finish each session. However, you may experience some discomfort from the inflammation caused by the heat.

Jaw filler/botox

Injections are effective in slimming your face without surgery. During this procedure, botox is injected into your jaw muscles (masseter muscle), paralysing them.

This will result in a softer and more balanced-looking jaw [2]. Jaw filler will be injected directly into your jawline to create a chiselled jaw. 

Surgery

Surgical jawline contouring is an invasive way to get smoother and slimmer jawline. If you want to have a slimmer jawline through surgery, you have to go through jaw surgery (mandibuloplasty) and chin surgery (genioplasty).

This procedure itself works by shaving your rear jaw and creating a smoother and slimmer-looking jawline[3].

Conclusion

Before choosing which option to go for, you need to consider the pros and cons of each procedure.

The side effects also vary, depending on which procedure you go for. Make sure that you research thoroughly in order to get the best result possible.
