How to Get a Sharp Jawline

Does beauty really depend on the person who sees it? In some cases, yes, but we cannot deny that there is also some math involved. The question is, what makes a person’s face attractive? Although it might be hard to specify exactly which traits determine attractiveness, several facial features have been shown to matter.

According to research (https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3130383/ ), people appreciate faces that seem symmetrical. Furthermore, average faces, which focus more on the specific features of the face and their arrangement, are also considered more appealing.

It is believed that one of the most attractive and charming traits is the so-called V-shaped face. It is characterised by an oval form with a pointed chin and a pronounced jawline. Unfortunately, nature is not always so kind as to bestow such a face form on everyone. Furthermore, our facial shapes tend to change as a result of the normal ageing process or significant weight fluctuation.

How do you get a chiselled jawline?

Getting cosmetic surgery is a great approach to obtaining that sharper jawline and V-shaped face. However, there are numerous more options, such as minimally invasive and non-invasive procedures, that can assist you in achieving excellent outcomes. Furthermore, several exercises may also help tone your jaw muscles and improve jaw definition.

Here we will cover the various ways to get a perfect jawline.

Non-surgical treatments for sharper jawline

There are various non-surgical procedures which can help you get a chiselled jawline quickly and effectively. You can choose between skin tightening or fat reduction treatments, or both, depending on the issue you want to address.

Medical Indiba V-Face System

Medical Indiba is a device that uses radio frequency energy to lift the jawline and create that beautiful V shaped face. The procedure is non-invasive, quick, and pain-free. It doesn’t require any downtime and is unlikely to result in any side effects.

Medical Indiba can melt excess fat under the chin, tighten the skin, and contour the neck and jaw area. It can improve your jaw muscles and help you get a toned face. As a bonus, this treatment promotes skin regeneration and reduces fine lines and wrinkles.

A key feature of the Medical Indiba technology is that it uses electrodes that work in a closed circuit in two different modes to deliver radio frequency energy. The first mode is capacitive, which targets the superficial layers of the skin. The second one is the resistive mode which penetrates deeper and works on the most resistive tissues such as bones, scars or fibrotic tissues. Due to its unique features, the Medical Indiba device can significantly improve skin quality and the functionality of the jawline muscles.

You will have a visible lifting effect right after the first session. However, over the next few months, the results will continue to improve. To achieve the best outcomes, it is recommended that you get a few treatment sessions.

Double Chin Cryosculpt

Double chin treatment is specially intended to get rid of extra fat in the area beneath the chin. It does not involve any surgery or long recovery. The cryosculpt device works by cooling cells, a process known as cryolipolysis, which can also be used to reduce body fat in other areas.

The procedure freezes fat cells, which are then thrown out naturally by the body. The first results of the fat freezing cryosculpt treatment usually appear after a month, but the area will continue to improve for up to 6 months.

A double chin cryosculpt can be a great option for you if you have a less defined jawline due to stubborn fat in the chin and neck region.

Non-surgical V-Lift/ Thread Face Lift

A thread facelift is a minimally-invasive procedure designed to lift sagging skin on the face and provide a more youthful appearance. This is achieved by stitching dissolvable sutures to the skin.

A thread facelift is a same-day procedure, meaning that you won’t need to stay at the clinic overnight. However, you will probably need to take a week off from work to recover.

Thread V-lift may be right for you if you have sagging skin around your jawline that is making it look less defined. The procedure can tighten and revitalise your skin, as well as help you get a chiselled jaw and sharper cheekbones.

Facial exercises for strong jawline

As with any other muscle in your body, your chin, neck, jaw, and other facial muscles need to be exercised to remain strong and toned. There are certain jaw exercises that can be particularly helpful. However, you need to make sure you are performing them correctly. Otherwise, you may injure yourself. If you feel pain, you must stop immediately.

Chin lift

Regularly performing chin lifts can help you achieve a defined and muscular jawline and tone up the chin and neck muscles. Follow the steps below to complete this exercise:

  • move your head upwards while keeping your lips together
  • bring your tongue up and down to the roof of your mouth (it should feel like your lower jaw is stretching)
  • do it a few times and then release your head down.

Have a brief pause and then repeat the exercise.

Make a fish face

A fish face is another exercise that can tone the muscles of your jaw and face. It can also promote losing fat in the facial region. How to do it? Follow these steps:

  • close your mouth and suck your cheeks in
  • then try to smile without changing the position of your cheeks.

Repeat the exercise a few times.

Tongue twister

This is an easy exercise which is also quite beneficial for the chin muscles.

  • bring your tongue on the roof of your mouth, at the back side of your teeth (keep your mouth closed)
  • then try to close completely the roof of the mouth by applying gentle pressure
  • Making a buzzing sound to trigger your jaw and neck muscles.

Do 3 or 4 sets of tongue twister exercise.

Collar bone back up

Collar bone backup is a great exercise for isolating all muscles underneath the bottom part of the chin, including the front neck muscles. All you need to do is to:

  • Stand or sit with your back straight and your head level with the ground
  • Start doing repetitive movements with your head, bringing it back and then to its original position (you should feel how the muscles located below your throat contract and release).

Repeat it several times.

Performing the exercises listed above can help you improve the shape of your face, as well as prevent neck pain and jaw pain. However, it is very important that you use the correct form while doing them so that you do not hurt yourself.

Other ways to get a sharp jawline

In addition to facial exercises, there are some other methods that can help you get a stronger jawline.

Eat healthily

Being overweight can significantly impact the appearance of your body as well as the shape of your face and jawline. In addition, the extra weight can cause poor posture, which may ultimately result in back and neck pain. Losing weight will definitely lead to a more prominent jawline.

If you want to have a slimmer face and a more defined jaw, then it is essential that you have a balanced diet. Combining it with regular jawline exercises may enhance your results further. Try to cut down on unhealthy and high-calorie foods such as sweets, and fast and processed foods. Also, make sure to limit salt in your diet. An excessive salt intake can make your face appear puffy and bloated.

Chew gum

Chewing gum is fun and one of the easiest methods for exercising your jaw and chin muscles. It can help you strengthen the muscles in the area and aid you in achieving a good jawline. Despite it seeming to be effortless, chewing gum is actually an enduring exercise which can enhance the shape of your chin and jaw. However, if you have a chubby face and fat bulges below your chin, this technique will barely help.

Get a facial massage

Massages can be an excellent way to tone your facial muscles, lessen puffiness in the jawline area as well as revitalise your skin. They are also very beneficial for reducing neck strain and tension in the shoulder area.

There are various kinds of massages you can get in Singapore. You can even opt for Korean deep tissue facial massage, which is specially designed to lift the facial skin and enhance the contour of the jawline.

Final thoughts

Some people can easily achieve a more defined jawline simply by exercising their facial muscles, while others may need to get specialised treatments or even plastic surgery in order to obtain the desired shape. 

This is because having a strong commanding jawline depends on a variety of factors, including your eating habits, how often you chew and others. However, when it comes to your facial structure, there are several individual genetic factors that have a key role.

In the event that you do not find exercise very helpful in improving the shape of your jawline, you may want to consult a medical aesthetician or plastic surgeon for recommendations on the best procedure for you.
