There are instances when the chin can begin to lose its aesthetic appeal.
Age and heredity all play a roll in why many individuals have common concerns about their chin’s appearance. Although there are surgical procedures available to permanently sculpt the chin to look more symmetrical to the rest of the face, invasive techniques can be intimidating for some. Rather than experience the discomfort of surgery, “liquid lifts” using dermal fillers and BOTOX® can provide a nonsurgical solution for a chin augmentation. By using a series of injectables, the staff at Destination Aesthetics can augment the chin and restore natural beauty without the need for incisions or downtime.
What is a Chin Augmentation?
Unless it is completely symmetrical, your chin can be one of the most prominent features on your face. Many people feel self-conscious about their chins if they notice that it is beginning to look sunken with age or if it is too large or small. With a nonsurgical chin augmentation, the features of your chin that are causing cosmetic concern can be masked so that you are able to look and feel like your best self. The procedure is especially beneficial for those who do not require major augmentation. By using strategically placed injections, volume can be replaced, wrinkles can be reduced and symmetry can be restored, which will enhance your appearance and boost your self-confidence.
A liquid chin augmentation can:
- Lift the appearance of jowls that become prominent with age
- Reduce the fine line wrinkles that may be present on the chin alone
- Improve definition on the chin so that it appears larger and balanced with the face
- Recede an overly prominent chin so that it blends with the face
- Reduce the appearance of shadows on the chin that can age the face
- Fill sunken areas or depressions that may be located in the chin
One of the best features of the chin augmentation is that it is completely nonsurgical, meaning that no invasive incisions are made into the face, which also allows any downtime to be relatively low. Many recipients return to their normal routine immediately after the procedure takes place and experience little pain before, during or after treatment. Nonsurgical chin augmentation can provide natural-looking results that are in line with your facial proportions, which can be a benefit to some who do not wish to receive the more dramatic effects of a surgical procedure.
Choosing the Right Filler
A variety of dermal fillers and other injections are available that can improve the contours of your chin, but there are differences in the way each serum performs. Whereas dermal fillers will fill in sunken dimples and wrinkles located in the chin, injectables like BOTOX® or Dysport® specifically target the muscles in order to relax them and produce smoother and tighter skin. The technique used for your chin augmentation will depend on your skeletal structure and cosmetic goals, which can be determined by a licensed and professional staff member at Destination Aesthetics.
We offer the following fillers for chin augmentation procedures:
Each filler used has a different longevity, and it is important to review the effects of the fillers we offer before receiving a chin augmentation. While many of these fillers are long-lasting, with some remaining in the chin for a year or more, the injections are not permanent and will require maintenance sessions in order to maintain their aesthetic appeal. The compromise is that when the fillers wear off, you can adjust the maintenance injections to any new aesthetic goals you may have. Additionally, most fillers offered can be reversed with the use of hyaluronidase, which is an acid that will immediately metabolize the filler if you decide that a chin augmentation is no longer right for you.
