Men and women alike are turning to aesthetic procedures in ever greater numbers to maintain a youthful and more refreshed appearance. One particular growth area is non surgical chin enhancement using dermal fillers, which can provide a more defined and aesthetically pleasing lower face for both the sexes.

For men, chin augmentation can provide a strong profile or jawline and rejuvenate the entire face. In fact, this type of non-surgical procedure, using fillers, is one of the most requested by men of all ages. Research suggests that people with strong chins are believed to be more powerful, successful and go-getting than those with less defined or recessive chins. For women, the same dermal fillers can be used to provide a more gentle chin augmentation to counteract the natural drooping effect that otherwise occurs with age, and to freshen and plump up the face overall, creating a tighter, stronger, more defined and youthful appearance. We take a closer look at how Hyaluronic acid dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Teosyal can be used to achieve chin augmentation and enhancement.

How fillers are used for chin enhancement?

Whether you want a very gentle enhancement to counteract the effects of gravity, or a more significant level of jaw and chin augmentation to create a far stronger profile. One very effective way to achieve a natural level of enhancement is through the use of dermal fillers. There are a range of chin fillers available. These dermal fillers sit under the skin (above the bone) and support the natural contours of the face for a more structured, defined look.

Two of the most popular dermal fillers on the market today are Juvederm and Teosyal. These two fillers are popular as they provide very targeted, natural-looking results. They are both based on Hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in the skin. It, however, diminishes over time with ageing hence leading to drooping and sagging in the underlying skin structure. By applying targeted injections of synthetic hyaluronic acid fillers, the skin’s appearance can be thoroughly rejuvenated and specific results through reshaping and contouring can be achieved.

What’s involved in the procedure?

Both Juvederm and Teosyal are fillers, which means that they are injected into the face by a skilled professional. The results are immediate and will settle in over an adjustment period, before the ultimate achieved result can be seen. Both of these chin fillers are highly effective and far less invasive than chin implants which require surgery. Some swelling and redness will occur afterwards. Although many patients find this to be incredibly minimal, thanks to the gentle procedure and thin needle application.

How long does it last for?

Results vary between patients, product and technique used. Generally speaking, a course of dermal fillers in the chin will last for around six to twelve months. Afterwards, you will need a top-up to maintain the effect of treatment.

Chin enhancement can be achieved using minimally invasive injection of dermal fillers to sculpt and better define this area. It is essential to only use a skilled and qualified practitioner when considering non-surgical and surgical enhancements for cosmetic purposes. Do your research thoroughly, check credentials, read reviews and have a pre-consultation meeting before committing to any treatments. This ensures that you will have time to consider the options carefully.
