Chin fillers are an aesthetic treatment that can enhance the chiseled jawline by adding volume to the area. Men and women alike may benefit from this aesthetic treatment for both male and female jawlines.
A prominent chin is a desirable facial feature that contributes to an attractive profile. Not only does it accentuate your lower facial profile, but it can also bring together all other features for a harmonious appearance.
Male and female alike often find a defined jawline to be an attractive trait that makes one appear more desirable and improves their aesthetic appeal. Furthermore, it may signify good health since studies suggest that having a well-proportioned jaw helps reduce the risk of heart disease, cancer, and diabetes.
When it comes to improving the appearance of your chin, many people are turning to dermal fillers. These injections utilize hyaluronic acid or poly-L-lactic acid (PLA) fillers like Juvederm Voluma, Restylane, Belotero, Revanesse, Teosyal or calcium hydroxyapatite ones like Radiesse to smooth away fine lines, plump skin cells and increase chin projection.
Your practitioner will first evaluate your facial anatomy and select the most suitable chin filler product for you. They then inject it into various points along the chin and jawline, massaging the area to shape it into its desired shape.
Your provider may administer a numbing agent, such as lidocaine, to make the treatment comfortable for you. You may experience mild swelling and bruising following the procedure; however, these usually subside within 24-48 hours.
Chin filler outcomes vary between patients, depending on the product used, how much is injected and your body’s response. It may take up to several weeks before you see visible changes; however, once they do appear it’s usually because of an allergic reaction.
Chin fillers typically last 9 to 16 months before being naturally metabolized by your body. For a longer-lasting result, your provider may suggest using a stronger filler.
What to Expect From Your Chin Filler Appointment
Most chin filler treatments are performed as outpatient procedures in the clinic. Expect to stay for around 30 minutes, during which your practitioner will administer some injections to the area. Some fillers, like Juvederm Voluma and Radiesse, offer natural-looking results which your provider can customize according to individual needs.
What to Expect After Your Chin Filler Appointment
You should expect some bruising and swelling in the area after each injection, particularly after the first few. Generally, this should go away quickly but you must avoid any activities that put pressure on the injection sites for 48 hours as the filler is malleable.
Chin filler injections are usually painless and take around 20-30 minutes to complete, depending on how much product your provider uses. Be sure to avoid alcohol or blood-thinning medications prior to your appointment in order to minimize bruising at the injection sites.
