Radiesse For Chin Augmentation

As we get older, our skin naturally loses Collagen as part of the ageing process. The depletion of this youth enhancing protein causes skin to get thinner and facial folds and creases develop, contributing to facial hollowing and a loss of structure and definition, especially at the jaw-line, chin areas and mid-face.

Thanks to a complete range of anti-ageing and volumising facial treatments, the Aesthetic Beauty Centre can help to naturally enhance your best features, with the dermal filler called Radiesse. This is a durable skin injectable which can be used for facial and chin augmentation and other areas. Radiesse is composed of synthetic Calcium Hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres which are suspended in a translucent gel form carrier. When injected, these micro-spheres provide a ´scaffolding´ onto which the body's own tissue can grow, naturally securing the implant in place.  

¨Chin augmentation with fillers can give instant results, with no invasive surgery nor downtime required. Dermal fillers such as Radiesse (Merz) can be injected into key areas to add instant definition and volume beneath the skin. This can help to modestly enhance chin and corresponding jawline contours for up to 9-14 months.¨ - Dr Ashish Dutta

As well as being the primary mineral constituent of bone and tooth, Calcium Hydroxylapatite can also be utilised as a bio-material. It has been used for over twenty years in the fields of Orthopaedics and Dentistry. This dermal filler which is synthetically created can also be used for hand rejuvenation and non-surgical nose reshaping (medical rhinoplasty).

This treatment has been extensively tested in clinical trials for over the past decade, achieving good safety and efficacy.

Radiesse can be used on many different areas of the face, including;

The application of Radiesse dermal filler is straightforward with a treatment time of around 15-30 minutes. The procedure involves localised injections to the specific areas to be treated. Prior to the injections, an anaesthetic cream may be applied locally to reduce the associated pain.

After the facial treatment, all patients can resume their daily normal activities; although others may prefer to wait for 24 hours, as swelling or redness may occur at the sites of the injectables. Depending on the desired result and the area being treated, patients can usually see results that will last between 9-14 months. Please remember that individual results may vary, depending on a number of factors such as age, lifestyle, anatomy and skin type of the patient.

The Aesthetic Beauty Centre operates with a fully qualified team of medical professionals; managed by Dr Ashish Dutta (Chief Surgeon) and Wendy Dutta (Chief Aesthetic Nurse) who will discuss the procedure during the initial consultation alongside the advantages, benefits and any side effects or aftercare that you may experience during your chin augmentation treatment.
