A strong chin is often seen as a sign of success – catwalk models, actors, sportsmen and even superheroes have strong chins. If you feel that you have a weak chin, there is a simple way to check. Take a picture of your profile and then draw a line from the inner part of your eyebrow, down past your nostril to your chin. If you have a straight line, your face is in proportion; however, if the line veers back towards your neck, you may benefit from chin augmentation using dermal fillers injected at sites along the chin.
WHAT TO EXPECT
About 15-20 minutes before the treatment takes place, a prescription anaesthetic cream is applied to the injection sites. The filler is injected at precise locations and the skin is massaged to smoothe the material. During the treatment you will have a mirror so that you can see the results which appear immediately. The whole treatment takes around 20-30 minutes.
Dermal fillers are suitable for most people except for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding.

Dermal fillers are an ideal way to beautifully enhance the shape of your face, including reshaping your chin and bring it more in proportion with the rest of your face. As we age, the amount of collagen and elastin in the skin reduces and our skin starts to sag and wrinkles form. Dermal fillers injected at strategic spots at the chin can fill these wrinkles and plump up the skin, therefore giving more shape to the chin. Your overall look will be fresher and more youthful looking.
WHAT ARE DERMAL FILLERS?
Dermal fillers are used to smooth the appearance of deep grooves and facial wrinkles. They are produced using Hyaluronic Acid, a substance that is found occurring naturally in the body. They lift and smooth folds and wrinkles by adding volume and giving definition and structural support to the face.
ARE DERMAL FILLERS SAFE?
As dermal fillers are made up of molecular structures of Hyaluronic Acid, a substance already taking place in the body, there is a significantly decreased risk of an adverse reaction, and so are very safe treatments.
HOW DO DERMAL FILLERS WORK?
Dermal fillers work by adding volume to the injection sites. They can fill wrinkles and plump the cheeks, thereby giving your face a fresher, more youthful look. The Hyaluronic Acid in the filler also attracts water molecules to the injected area so moisture is locked in to the area and your skin will feel more hydrated.
Depending on the areas treated, and the metabolism rate of the client, dermal fillers can last from 3-6 months. The Hyaluronic Acid is broken down by the body so repeat treatments will be necessary if you wish to maintain a specific look.
If you suffer from cold sores, make sure that you have an oral prescription prior to your treatment as it may provoke an outbreak.
Common injection related effects may include:
These symptoms should resolve in 2-7 days.
Do not take aspirin, ibuprofen or Advil for two days after treatment; also, avoid them for one week prior to treatment
Do not use ice on swollen areas after treatment
Avoid exercise, except for walking, for 24 hours after treatment
