Chin Enhacement

Chin fillers strongly help define and sharply dictate the lower shape of the face. Adding volume to the chin to help provide some anterior protrusion to counteract a weak chin and shaping the face to help it appear more oval or like a ‘love heart’. This procedure is ideal for people with weak, retracted, or short chins in order to enhance their features to reach the optimal facial profile and draw the side profile closer to Ricketts’s line.

With the use of world renowned premium grade TGA approved facial fillers combined with Anti wrinkle treatment to give you the optimal chin

Chin sculpting is generally done in combination with jawline treatments.

  • Provides a more youthful appearance, helps restore volume loss, provides structure support and lift to the brows, eye lids and aspects of the mid and lower face. This appropriately helps contour the face to provide an adequate balance and facial ratio.
  • Enhancing shape and definition to the face.
  • Hyaluronic acid injected directly into the facial tissues stimulates the production of collagen.
  • Help produce a symmetrical appearance as symmetry is associated with attractiveness.

    Chin Enhacement

     

    This simple treatment can help reshape your face and provide you with the right facial balance to help enhance your beauty. We use to chin fillers to improve the facial profile through the following:

    • Chin projection-
      This is seen from the side profile, using facial measurement techniques such as Ricketts line, where some chins do not project enough and as a result appear to be weak.
    • Chin height
      The length of the chin gradually declines with age and in many cases is even hereditary form a young age. We measure the ideal ratio calculating the heigh from the upper lip to the nose, comparatively from the lower lip to the bottom of the chin and correct the shortening. Loss of chin height results in an ageing appearance. 
    • Shape of the chin-
      To help feminize the face, we help create a more pointy , V shaped (or love heart shaped) face, where the bottom of the chin is relatively pointy. Overtly pointy may not be suitable for everyone and each treatment is individualised.
    • Chin Width –
      Female a narrow chin, ideally the maximum width to be in line with the outer nostrils, is one of the many measurements used to calculate chin width with respect to the overall face.  
    • Reduce the appearance of a double chin
    • Improve skin quality 
    • Reverse some of the ageing signs of the lower face.

      Chin Dimples

      Chin dimples, also known as a cobblestone appearance of the chin, is due to enlargement (hypertrophy) and excessive use of the chin muscle called the Mentalis. This muscle tends to contract during a normal conversation, leading to unwanted dimpling and lifting of the chin. This Hypertrophy of the mentalis muscle also leads to blunting and shortening of the ideal chin point, creates a ‘Popeye Chin”.

      Treatment Risks

      Risks and side effects of Dermal fillers

      Bruising

      Swelling in the injection region

      Redness

      Asymmetry. One side may have a better outcome than the other. This is often due to the fact that faces have a great degree of asymmetry and people often tend to focus more on their face after treatment where these asymmetries become more obvious to the individuals. With many patients, one side of the face tends to be healthier and respond better to treatment providing more structural support and better outcome.

      Infection; rare but is always a possibility when there is any opening of the skin

      Necrosis (cells death due to obstruction of a blood vessel): Rare complication. This may potentially lead to worse outcomes.

      Blindness is an extremely rare outcome.     

      Pain Relief

      Most practitioners and patients prefer to have some form of pain relief. There are multiple options available for your convenience;

      • Local anaesthesia using a nerve block is a fantastic method to achieve almost no pain at all, however this does vary based on individual. This is quite similar and sometimes used interchangeably with the term dental block. Most dermal fillers also contain local anaesthesia and hence any pain experienced during treatment generally tends to improve throughout
      • Laughing gas (also known as happy gas or Nitros oxide) is also available.
      • Applying ice to the area prior to treatment can also help reduce the pain, and applying ice after the procedure also helps reduce the swelling.

      After the pain relief is applied, cleaning agents to minimise infection risk, such as alcohol swabs or Chlorhexidine is applied to the area. Dermal fillers are applied by injecting the product and inserting accordingly at different layers beneath the skin

      Right After The Procedure

      After treatment Some bruising, redness and swelling maybe present and self resolve over the next few days. Generally the swelling tends to provide a slightly enhanced effect due to the increased volume associated with this, which tends to disappear eventuate into a more natural appearance. Some patients tend to enjoy the swelling effect, however others may prefer the more natural effect.
