The Advantages of Dermal Fillers For A Fast Chin Enhancement

Posted by Dr Ashish Dutta on 3 April 2019

The use of fillers by aesthetic professionals has for some time been associated with the application of cosmetic enhancements for the cheeks and lips. Fillers are also used for the smoothing out of wrinkles and general balancing of the facial features and plumping out the skin to give it a more youthful appearance. 

As the aesthetic enhancement technology improves, we find ourselves stuck between a rock and a hard place. Sadly, in a budget conscious world clients are seeking out recommendations for different alternatives to what they may consider as invasive surgery. The interests of the client must quite rightly always come first. The application of dermal fillers is now routinely used as a viable alternative to surgical interventions around the jaw and chin area. 

The advantages of such fillers are numerous; they can save the client a great deal of post-operative discomfort and reduce the downtime both socially and professionally. Another positive, is the cost effectiveness of the non-surgical nature of the treatment which can make it more appealing.    

The use of fillers on the chin area can be very straightforward giving a very subtle and almost imperceptible improvement to a client’s features. To reiterate, although fillers can be successfully applied to upper facial contouring, particular improvements can be almost instantly be achieved by focusing upon the lower face and jaw line. Dermal fillers can be used to add better definition to the chin and reduce the appearance of jowls. 

Before any procedure is started, the all-important consultation is required with the patient; the medical history is established and then the proceedings will turn to the all-important client expectations. It may well be that in the future more extensive cosmetic procedures may be required and it is really up to the client to decide the course of action they wish to have undertaken. Of course, we as aesthetic practitioners have a duty of care to be honest about the needs of the patient and discuss any potential side-effects and promising realistic results. 

The treatment itself can be completed relatively painlessly under local anaesthetic by injecting a biologically safe gel containing Hyaluronic acid into the skin. This Hyaluronic Acid boosts the skin’s hydration through the sub-dermal tissue helping to lift and smooth it. This return to elasticity gives the skin a more youthful look without the need for extensive intervention. 

The treatment should start to improve the look of the skin around the chin area almost immediately with full integration occurring after about two weeks. Potential clients can expect the results to last anywhere between 6-12 months before needing a ‘top up’ treatment. Whatever the levels of treatment are, you can be assured that your aesthetic professional is duty bound to give you the highest levels of advice, treatment and aftercare.
