With the rise of contouring techniques and the prominence of celebrities and influencers with sharp jawlines in the media, it’s no surprise that people are looking for cosmetic procedures to achieve a more chiseled and defined chin. Chin filler is for anyone looking to improve and enhance their jawline and alter their face shape.
With the additional volume in your chin area, your face shape gets more definition and your issues of loose skin or sagging skin along the bottom half of your face to further accentuate your jawline.
Additionally, chin filler injections can be used to treat and remove cleft chins. To treat the dimple causing a cleft chin, chin fillers can be injected directly to the area to increase its volume. With the additional volume, the deep dent should rise to a level where it evens out with the rest of the area essentially removing the dimple. For anyone looking to improve their chin’s appearance or treat their cleft chin, chin fillers may help you achieve your desired results.
Chin filler injections are suitable for anyone looking to improve their jawline or appearance of their skin; however, it’s recommended that only those who are 21 years old and above participate in this treatment.
Like other dermal filler injections, chin fillers are considered an outpatient procedure that can be done in under half an hour. Before the actual administration of the chin fillers, measurements and proportions of your face will be taken to decide placement of each filler injection.
Placements and number of filler injections will differ from person to person depending on their natural jawline and face shape and what their desired end result is. Once that has been done, the chin fillers will be injected directly under your skin close to the bone to avoid your nerves and blood vessels.
Yes, the type of chin filler you use does matter when it comes to the final result of the procedure. Though there are many fillers being used for chin augmentation at the moment, only Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Defyne fillers have been approved by the FDA to be used as cheek fillers.
While both of these are hyaluronic acid based fillers, if you’re looking for a sharp jawline contouring treatment, Juvederm Voluma may be the better option. It has been said that the denser formula of Juvederm Voluma chin fillers can greatly benefit a patient looking to contour their chin and face shape more intensely as it provides more support.
In terms of risk, hyaluronic acid based fillers whether it be Juvederm Voluma or Restylane Defyne fillers are also less likely to cause an issue when it comes to the end result or fixing possible mistakes. According to dermatologists, hyaluronic acid fillers are easier to remove in the event that something goes wrong with the placement or an adverse reaction takes place.
Additionally, it’s less likely that you will have an adverse reaction to the filler and acquire any side effects since hyaluronic acid is naturally occurring in the human body.
Chin fillers may or may not hurt depending on the patient's pain tolerance. If the facial filler injections are to be placed deeper into the skin of the patient, a topical anesthetic may be applied to numb the area and make the treatment more comfortable. Otherwise, chin fillers shouldn’t cause much pain or discomfort.
Depending on your body's ability to metabolize the chin filler and absorb it into your skin tissues, chin fillers can last anywhere from a year to 5 years. If you’re younger in age, it’s likely that your chin fillers results will last a shorter period of time as your metabolism rate is naturally higher and will dissolve the fillers quickly.
While there’s technically no downtime when it comes to chin filler treatments with most patients returning to work on the same day, you’ll feel some soreness, temporary swelling, and slight bruising in the area for the first few days. You should also avoid touching your face and direct sunlight for the first 2 days after your treatment to ensure that the fillers do no more or get UV damage before they get the chance to fully settle.
Getting chin and cheek fillers can be done in the same appointment as long as you don’t need more than 2 to 3 filler injections to treat both facial features. Otherwise, it’s advisable to schedule separate appointments for other dermal filler injections. You can however get botox and chin fillers during the same appointment. As long as you’re not getting facial and chin fillers and Botox in the same area, it’s perfectly safe to inject both of them in one go.
Chin fillers is a non-surgical chin augmentation treatment that can help you achieve the perfect contoured jawline, smooth out the appearance of your chins, and prevent sagging skin around the area. Without needing to undergo surgery, you can easily change and improve your facial appearance by boosting its symmetry and definition using just a few injections for years.
