Many people wish they had a more defined, projected chin area and desire more definition or simply to even out their profiles and proportions of the face.

Dermal Filler can be used on the chin to stiffen the skin and define the chin and jowl area, lessening the weakness of a weak chin. Having a chin filler treatment can enhance that ‘heart shape’ which is synonymous with a youthful visage. With a very simple and subtle enhancement, a significant change can be achieved. Chin fillers can also create an illusion of a shorter chin and is an excellent alternative to surgery.
First, your face is cleansed and if desired a topical anaesthetic is applied to help numb the area and reduce pain. This is followed by the administering of the chin filler injections specifically targeted to the required face areas which have been pre-discussed and defined with your clinician. During the procedure, you will receive multiple injections in your chin and jawline. Afterward, your provider may want you to return for a follow-up visit and additional injections until desired results are achieved.

Most chin filler results are visible immediately after treatment; however, some formulations may take a few days to see the full results. Chin fillers will give you a stronger-looking chin, soften a chin cleft, restore volume, and are generally a great way to balance your face’s features–– with no surgery or downtime. The results are temporary, and further top-ups will be required to maintain the augmentation. Chin augmentation typically has a duration of at least two years – at which point it will need to be re-done.
You may notice a bit of swelling, a little bruising, and perhaps some tenderness where the injections took place these issues are typically common and should resolve themselves within a few days. Many patients experience relief by holding a lightweight cold compress to their chin to help reduce swelling.
