attractive-man-strong-jawDesigned to define the jawline and eliminate fullness under the chin.

We all know the look we associate with a successful, masculine man…modeled after superheroes like Superman: the chiseled jawline -no double chin, no slack skin. A strong jawline in male patients gives the sense of confidence, strength, being fit, and of course youth. Browse Linkedin CEOs and you will notice the chosen headshots for men tend to be angled to highlight a sharp, masculine, superhero like jawline. This feature somehow conveys to the human eye a sense of power, masculinity, and control—characteristics that are often associated with success and desirability. Now we can help every man achieve this look as a result of the breakthrough treatments Kybella and Coolsculpting.

More men than ever are seeking non-invasive physician office procedures to give them not just a competitive edge in aging, but in the workplace as well. Genetics mostly determine who has a “strong jawline” without sagging, or fullness under the chin. Nowadays, subtle and completely natural appearing enhancement of the male jawline can occur without surgery in about 30 minutes to an hour at The Derm Institute using treatments like Kybella, CoolSculptingdermal fillers, botox, and Microfocused Radiofrequency Tightening.

Which treatment is right for me?  Kybella or Coolsculpting?

Both CoolSculpting and Kybella can address a “double chin” appearance–permanently. Sometimes they are used alone or in conjunction.  Dr. Chiu personally consults with every patient to determine which is the best and cost-effective option for every patient.

Kybella is a first in class revolutionary treatment to better define the jawline and eliminate fullness under the chin. Our patients are thrilled with this completely non-surgical, scar-free treatment to address this area.  The results are long-lasting and the fat that is removed is permanent. Treatment comprises of small injections of the Kybella medication under the chin. The active ingredient of Kybella is a naturally occurring compound deoxycholic acid that breaks down unwanted fat. Gradual reduction in fullness of the underchin and jawline area occurs in the following weeks to months.

Dr. Chiu and The Derm Institute Team are proud to be named a Kybella Center of Excellence with our extensive experience and superior results.


Coolsculpting uses freezing technology to cause fat cells to crystalize and be metabolized out of the body.  It is commonly used for unwanted fat around the abdomen and lovehandles, but is also extremely effective for fat around the jawline, neck, and chin.  The procedure is non-surgical, non-invasive, and painless.  Our patients relax while watching Netflix when undergoing CoolSculpting.  Treatment results take 2-3 months to see but are considered permanent, as long as a healthy lifestyle is maintained.

Amp Up For Even Better Results

For all of the superhero, CEO, and success inspired men out there– don’t fear, Dr. Annie Chiu is an expert at using multiple modalities in addition to Kybella and CoolSculpting to resculpt, relift, and firm up the masculine jawline:


Advanced techniques can be utilized to reduce the downward pull of muscle fibers in the neck, known as platysmal bands, on the jawline to give the face better contour. This is an easy, painless 15 min procedure.


Some patients are born with a “weak chin”, or the bone loss with age makes the chin appear smaller, losing the strength of a sharp jawline. With products like Radiesse, Voluma, Restylane, and Sculptra, advanced cosmetic injectors such as Dr. Chiu can resculpt, relift, and redefine the entire chin and jawline area in less than 45 minutes. Results are immediate for those who love instant gratification with minimal downtime.

Radiofrequency Tightening

Breakdown of collagen with age, sun exposure, smoking, and genetics causes thinning and loss of elasticity in the skin. Radiofrequency like Microfocused Radiofrequency Tightening like Infini can heat the collagen, stimulating new collagen production and tightening of collagen fibers to redefine the jawline.

A lot of these procedures can be combined for the best results depending on each individual’s needs. The Derm Institute is committed to a comfortable low pressure environment for every patient to discuss their concerns.
