Chin Fillers: Improving your Profile
In the dermatology and cosmetic space, dermal fillers are a safe and effective method to plump up your cheeks, lips, and around your eyes. These fillers give you a refreshed look, giving you that glow that takes years off your face. Dermal fillers have been used for lips and cheeks, but can it help your chin as well? It sounds strange that you’ll need a filler for your chin. However, chin fillers can dramatically improve your profile. It’s been picking up steam in terms of a popular dermatology “tweakment” Here’s what to look forward to when you enter and leave your dermatologist’s office, looking better than ever.
Chin Fillers: A More Sculpted Profile in Minutes
Chin fillers involve using injectable fillers to enhance the size and shape of your chin. These are precisely placed under the skin to give a more well- defined, attractive profile. Do you wish you had more projection and better definition in the lower half of your face? Nonsurgical chin jobs are growing in popularity for several reasons. Before these office-based treatments became available, the only option for improving the profile of the lower face and jawline was a chin implant, which required a far more invasive surgical approach. Chin sculpting with dermal fillers, on the other hand, is minimally invasive.
What makes the treatment so successful is that it is fully customizable. The shape of the jawline can be molded to suit your other facial features and individual preferences. We place volume in the precise areas that need it. This means your new jawline will be undetectable to others but visibly improved to you.
Several injectable fillers, e.g. Juvederm, Radiesse, or Restylane are available to enhance and reshape your jawline. These dermal fillers sculpt the face and showcase the natural beauty of your features. The FDA recently approved Juvederm Voluma specifically for the chin and jawline area.
Can anyone get chin filler?
People in their 40s and 50s gravitated to dermal fillers, including chin fillers. Now, younger individuals are using chin fillers to help with their careers and also as a preventative measure. While dermal fillers are generally safe, those who are prone to serious allergies should be cautious. Other reasons include multiple allergies and reactions to anesthesia or similar products like lidocaine. As a precaution, women who are pregnant should wait before trying chin fillers.
Do chin fillers hurt?
Chin fillers are relatively painless. Some chin fillers include lidocaine, a common numbing medication. You will feel some discomfort as the dermatologist injects the filler, however, this is temporary. After the procedure, there will be some slight swelling and tenderness in the chin. After 24-48 hours, this swelling will subside. Make sure to avoid strenuous activity for at least 48 hours to not affect the position of the fillers.
Chin Sculpting with Injectable Filler: What to Expect?
Chin augmentation is a non-surgical procedure that will enhance your jawline and give you a more symmetric, attractive look. The process of injecting the dermal fillers can take from 10-15 minutes. Your doctor will start with a small amount of filler to gauge your chin’s response, especially if this is the first time you’re having fillers. With the filler in place, the doctor then molds and massages the chin and jawline to set the fillers in place.
Most people experience only mild discomfort during the injection. There may be some slight redness and soreness in the area for a few days. There is no downtime and you can return to work the same day. For best results, however, it’s important to have the jawline enhancement done by a board-certified dermatologist with expertise in cosmetic procedures and injectable fillers.
How long do chin fillers last?
Unlike other injectables, chin fillers have a lot more longevity. Fillers like Juvederm and Restylane Lyft have a 2-year life. Others may last just one year. Over time, the body starts to absorb the filler. Getting a touch up after 1-2 years is best. Make sure to check in with your dermatologist at least every 6 months and schedule a touch up after 1-2 years.
Liquid Chin Enhancement: A Long-Lasting Solution
It is no coincidence that the most famous and successful people have strong chins. This is one feature that can single-handedly create an aura of confidence and charisma. Injectable fillers are an easy way to fill out a recessive chin and give the face a more proportionate look. Non-surgical chin augmentation can enhance a weak chin and produce instant results with no surgery and no downtime. You don’t have to live with a less-than-perfect version of yourself.
