Chin Fillers—A Better Profile Without Surgery

Considering chin fillers? Read on before making a decision.

The great Leonardo DaVinci married art and engineering in Mona Lisa, using the aesthetic golden ration. Hence, some called facial augmentation studied artistry. It is the delicate balance of symmetry and contour projection. However no many know chin plays a significant role when it comes to facial attractiveness.

A strong chin is an important element of an attractive face. An ample chin can add definition, help create symmetry and bring balance to facial features. For individuals with average to moderate chins, we perform non-surgical chin augmentation by using injectable chin fillers. This technique is a non-surgical alternative to surgery.

For surgical candidates who are interested in viewing their potential results before undergoing surgery, this non-surgical method is a great first step.

Non-Surgical Chin Fillers and the Aging Face

As we age, the mandible (jawbone) gets smaller, and we begin to lose fat around the mouth and chin. These gradual changes can cause marionette lines, thinning and wrinkling around the lips, as well as contribute to jowling. Injectable fillers can be placed both around the mouth and along the chin. This is to add volume to the face and create a more youthful appearance. The non-surgical chin augmentation technique places a dermal filler such as JUVEDERM VOLUMA XC under the skin using a needle or micro-cannula. These work to add volume and projection to the chin.

Augmenting recessed chin with fillers is comfortable and requires minimal downtime. This treatment lasts up to 9-12 months and hyaluronic acid fillers are reversible if you wish to revert to their original appearance. For an enhanced chin, we recommend undergoing regular injections for maintenance.
