The shape of your chin depends on several factors including genetics, development and the rest of your facial features. A small chin is generally described as one that appears diminutive compared to the rest of the face and in many cases is also receded. Chin dimpling, on the other hand, is the appearance of a lump of tissue that looks like a “button” or dimple on the front of the chin. This is usually always visible but accentuated by moving the chin. People usually seek chin dimpling treatment and small chin correction for cosmetic reasons. However, a small chin maybe associated with dental problems.
A small chin maybe caused by the reduced size of the chin bones, a small amount of fat under the skin of the chin or small chin muscles. A dimpled chin is usually caused by overactivity of the chin muscles. The most common reason for having a small chin or chin dimpling is genetics. That is, you’ve inherited this from your family. Other factors which can exacerbate the appearance of a small or dimpled chin include loss of skin thickness and elasticity due to ageing and loss of facial volume.
Chin enhancement is any procedure used to alter the shape of the chin in order to enlarge, reduce or in anyway enhance its appearance. There are many methods for chin enhancement ranging from non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers to permanent chin implants or bone surgery.
At City Skin Clinic, we offer a number of non-surgical chin enhancement treatments. These are:
Chin fillers: we use Juvederm hyaluronic acid dermal fillers to increase chin size, reshape the chin and enhance the profile
Botox® injections: this chin dimpling treatment works relaxing the chin muscles using Botox muscle relaxing injections.
Combination of Botox and dermal fillers: We use a combination of these to enhance and augment the chin as well as sculpt the surrounding jawline if necessary in order to reshape the lower face.
At City Skin Clinic, we can also help boost the results of Botox and dermal fillers with our professional skin treatments. These treatments help smooth out wrinkles and plump up ageing skin in order to complement the results of chin sculpting and contouring.
