Chin and Jawline Sculpting

Young woman with beautiful jaw line and lips.  Chin and Jawline Sculpting. 
 Dr. Joshua Baker, Dallas TX.

A well-defined jawline and balanced chin can have a significant impact on your overall appearance—a more sculpted, youthful, and attractive facial profile. Nothing ages the face like a lax jawline (“jowls”) or a weak chin. These features can contribute to a rounded appearance, making you look older than you are or undermining your natural facial structure. Patients looking to enhance their appearance through chin and jawline sculpting have many options.

At The Retreat Restorative & Aesthetics practice, Dr. Joshua Baker understands the importance of achieving facial balance and harmony. He is dedicated to providing exceptional care and results for his patients in Rockwall, Plano, Heath, and Dallas, TX.

About Chin and Jawline Sculpting

There are several ways to sculpt the chin and jawline. Dr. Baker has hand-selected his favorite treatments that will address the following:

  • Sagging skin
  • Jowls
  • Double chin (submental fat)
  • Wrinkles
  • Fat pad displacement
  • & more

Facetite for Jowls and Chin

Scientists have created new devices that use special energy to help fix these skin problems called percutaneous radiofrequency technologies. The most notable among these treatments is Facetite.

Deeper layers of the skin are important for making a person’s face look youthful and strong. The skin loses collagen and elastin in the subcutaneous layers as we age, but when Facetite sends energy into these deep layers, it helps to make the skin tighter and smoother. It can also get rid of some of the extra fat and make the skin more elastic.

Facetite is a popular alternative to traditional chin and jawline augmentation, such as a facelift or neck lift, and involves less downtime with fewer risks and complications. It can be an effective option for those with mild to moderate sagging or excess fat in the chin and jawline area and looking for a non-surgical solution.

What is RF Energy?

Radiofrequency (RF) energy is a type of energy that is commonly used in cosmetic treatments to address sagging skin. It delivers heat energy deep into the skin’s tissues, causing a controlled injury and altering the underlying collagen fibers. This controlled injury triggers the body’s natural healing process, stimulating the production of new collagen and elastin fibers.

Forma & Morpheus8

Two more treatments offering radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour the skin around the chin and jawline are Forma and RF microneedling. Forma uses a hand-held device over the skin, while other treatments combine RF with microneedling, making it minimally invasive. The RF treatment to tighten the skin of your chin and jawline will depend on how much laxity you have and whether you have fat pads that you would like addressed.

Kybella Melts Away Submental Fullness

Kybella is a brand name of an injectable medication called deoxycholic acid, which is used for treating submental fullness or a “double chin.” It is injected into the fat beneath the chin and destroys fat cells, leading to a noticeable reduction in submental fullness. [1]

Kybella patients require multiple injections spaced out over time. Most patients will need 3 to 5 injection sessions, typically spaced at least a month apart. Both men and women can benefit from this groundbreaking injectable.

What is Deoxycholic Acid?

Deoxycholic acid is a substance in our bodies that helps break down fat. When injected into the fat tissue under the skin, it can break down fat cells, too. Kybella is a solution made of synthetic deoxycholic acid.

Platelet-Rich Plasma for Chin and Jawline Rejuvenation

Another groundbreaking treatment Dr. Baker offers his patients for chin and jawline sculpting is   PRP, which is short for platelet-rich plasma. Platelet-rich plasma (PRP) is a component of regenerative medicine due to its high concentration of growth factors and ability to act as a scaffold for tissue regeneration. [2] 

The PRP is injected into the patient’s chin and jawline, which can help tighten and smooth the skin, reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and improve the overall contour of the jawline. This treatment can be a good option for patients who want to increase the results of their skin-tightening or fat-melting treatment.

What are the Benefits of Chin and Jawline Sculpting?

A well-defined jawline and chin can enhance the face’s overall balance and harmony, creating an improved aesthetic appearance. As people age, they may experience a loss of definition in their jawline and chin, contributing to an aged appearance. Chin and jawline sculpting can help restore a more youthful look. These improvements to the chin and jawline can help people feel more confident and attractive.

Many of Dr. Baker’s chin and jawline sculpting techniques are minimally invasive, meaning patients can avoid the risks and downtime associated with more invasive procedures. They are generally well-tolerated, with minimal discomfort during and after the procedure. Furthermore, these treatments can be tailored to each patient’s needs and goals, and combined, allowing for boosted and personalized results.

Ideal Candidates

The ideal candidate for chin and jawline sculpting is a man or woman with

  • Excess submental fat
  • A double chin
  • Jowls

They should be in good health and ready to understand realistically what can be achieved with the procedure. Dr. Baker will help patients better understand treatment-specific guidelines for determining candidacy. Schedule a consultation today to learn more!

Personal Consultation

Dr. Baker’s priority is to ensure that his patients are well-informed about their options and have realistic expectations for the procedure’s outcome. He will take the time to answer any patient’s questions and work with them to create a customized treatment plan that addresses their unique concerns and goals.

During the consultation at The Retreat in Rockwall, TX, patients can expect a thorough evaluation of their chin and jawline, a review of their medical history, and an assessment of their facial anatomy to determine the most appropriate treatment plan.

Our team will educate the patient on each treatment option’s benefits and potential risks, the expected recovery time, and any necessary post-treatment care.


The preparation for chin and jawline sculpting may vary depending on the specific treatment Dr. Baker recommends. However, some medications, such as aspirin or blood thinners, may increase the risk of bleeding during and after the procedure and should be avoided. Furthermore, alcohol and smoking can increase the risk of complications, so it is recommended to avoid these as well for a period before and after the treatment.

Procedure & Recovery

The Forma Procedure

Forma treatment is non-invasive and typically takes 30-60 minutes per session. Patients may experience some redness or swelling following the procedure but can resume normal activities immediately.

Morpheus8 Procedure

This treatment involves using a handheld device that delivers energy to the targeted areas. The procedure typically takes 60-90 minutes, and patients may experience some redness and swelling afterward but can usually return to normal activities within a few days.

The Facetite Procedure

During the Facetite treatment, Dr. Baker will give the patient enough medicine to avoid discomfort. Then, using a special tool called an RF probe, he will enter through a small hole near the ear and move the probe under the skin to make tunnels; this way, the tool can travel easily when the RF energy is delivered. Dr. Baker will move the tool along the jawline, stopping every centimeter to send energy for about 5 seconds. [3] He will do the same thing on the other side of the face and then treat the middle part under the chin.

The Kybella Procedure

As stated, Kybella involves a series of injections spaced at least a month apart, with most patients requiring 3-5 sessions. Patients may experience swelling and bruising after the injections but can resume normal activities immediately.

The PRP Procedure

PRP (platelet-rich plasma) treatment involves drawing a small amount of the patient’s own blood, processing it to concentrate the platelets, and injecting it into the targeted areas of the chin and jawline. The treatment typically takes 30-60 minutes per session. Patients may experience some redness and swelling afterward but can usually return to normal activities within a few days.

The Results

The first thing patients say after chin and jawline sculpting is, “Wow, I can’t believe the difference it makes!” We also hear that they wish they’d done this years ago. Sculpting the chin and jawline can transform the face. A more well-defined chin can create a stronger profile, while a more defined jawline can provide a more youthful and attractive appearance.

While the procedures may vary in technique, they all aim to enhance the chin and jawline for a more defined and attractive appearance. Patients with excess submental fat, loose skin, or a weak chin can benefit greatly from chin and jawline sculpting.
