A well proportioned chin can result in a pleasing and balanced aesthetic appearance to the face. It is an over-looked area of facial aesthetics and appropriate correction respecting the exact proportions of the face can result in restoring balance to other areas of the face including the nose and lips.
Women have narrower faces where the chin is delicate and projects light in a single point. The chin in females symbolises sensuality whereas in men it demonstrates masculinity. Men tend to have wide angular features with a strong chin projecting light in two points.
At Skyn Doctor, we are trained in re-shaping the chin using the latest advanced dermal fillers on the market. Non-surgical chin augmentation using long-lasting fillers can prevent premature ageing of the lower face such as marionette lines.
What are Chin Fillers?
Dermal fillers are made up of Hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance that is found in the skin. At Skyn Doctor, we use the most sophisticated range on the market: Juvederm by Allergan. These products are malleable solutions which enhance natural features and recontour areas of concern. They are not permanent, patients do not have to fear that the results are irreversible, but they can enjoy results for up to 24 months post-treatment.
How is the treatment carried out?
Small quantities of the filler gel are injected superficially using a fine needle into the areas of the face where there are wrinkles and lines. A local anaesthetic cream may be used to help reduce discomfort.A local anaesthtic cream is firstly applied to the skin to reduce discomfort. Small quantities of filler are then injected beneath the chin using a fine needle to add volume and shape.
