Non-surgical Chin Augmentation with Chin Fillers

Taking the surgical approach for a more defined or chiselled chin is now a thing of the past. Injectable fillers are fast becoming a popular, non-surgical choice to cinch the jawline you desire. Made up of Hyaluronic Acid (HA), the filler is used to augment the chin, providing a more sophisticated side-profile. With age, the bone in the chin can seem to appear less prominent. This is easily rectified with fillers to create a youthful and slim V-shaped facial aspect.

What is Chin Filler? What Does Chin Augmentation Do?

Chin filler is a non-surgical procedure that transforms the definition of the chin. For people who want a more balanced facial structure or a youthful-looking face, chin filler is a popular procedure.

Chin filler is an injection that contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a popular anti-ageing humectant. This provides volume to the chin area, increases chin projection and height, and improves the shape of the chin by reducing the appearance of saggy skin around the jaw. The process is quite simple and is performed by the doctor in the clinic.

Chin filler is a temporary option to reshape or enhance the size of the chin. If you are looking for a painless alternative to permanent chin implant surgery, chin fillers are worth considering.

How Does Chin Filler Work?

Chin fillers are dermal fillers, injected in the chin area to add volume and definition to the chin. This brings the appearance of the chin area in harmony with other facial features, giving a more balanced profile.

Are Chin Fillers Permanent?

Chin fillers are not permanent. How long they last depend upon the filler type, treatment area, and the individual’s body. As chin fillers are made up of HA, which the body slowly breaks down, they do not last forever. Since chin fillers are not permanent, they will not look out of place as you age as the fillers will slowly dissolve and you can get fillers in other areas where you think you need them.

What is the Best Filler for the Chin?

As the chin area has bones, thicker fillers are recommended as they tend to work better in that area. That is why Hyaluronic acid, due to its thick consistency, is one of the largely preferred and best fillers for the chin area.

How Long Does the Filler Last?

Chin fillers can last between 18 to 24 months.

How is Chin Filler Performed?

To start with the chin filler procedure, first, book an appointment at Shiro Aesthetic Clinic for a consultation with our doctor about the details of the treatment. This way you can discuss the procedure, your concerns, and possible side effects. At the same time, the aesthetic doctor will evaluate your chin area and discuss your medical history.

The doctor will inject the chin filler during your next clinic visit. The process involves cleaning the area and applying a numbing cream. After that, the chin filler is injected strategically into the soft tissues of the chin.

Benefits of Chin Fillers

Chin fillers provide the required projection to the area of the jaw where definition is frequently lost with age. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular options for chin augmentation for the range of advantages they offer:

  • Non-Surgical: The most important benefit of chin fillers is they are non-surgical, which means there is minimal risk and little downtime.
  • Instant Results: Chin fillers offer quick results, hence, whenever you feel like changing your look by getting the chin augmentation treatment, you don’t have to wait for long to see the results.
  • Address Ageing Concerns: Chin fillers add volume to the jaw area, giving the required projection and height to hide signs of ageing. With age, the skin starts losing its strength and volume, which can be restored by taking chin fillers.
  • Better Appearance: A chin augmentation treatment can provide facial symmetry by shaping your chin according to your individual profile and requirements.

Possible Side Effects of Fillers for Chin

Chin fillers pose minimal to no risks. However, you may experience temporary discomfort and common side effects after getting chin filler. Some of these include:
