What Can Fillers Do?
Fillers can be injected into the chin for chin augmentation. A recessive chin can be made to look more proportional. Fillers injected into the jawline will reduce the appearance of jowls and sagginess. The jawline will become fuller and sharper, with a more defined separation between the jaw and neck. Even subtle changes in this area can give the appearance of having lost weight. Many patients opt to treat the chin and jawline together to achieve balance in the context of the whole face.
Procedure And Results
Prior to injections, the patient should stop all topical treatments with retinol, retinoids, or glycolic acid for several days. The doctor may prepare the injection area with a topical numbing cream. Chin filler treatments can take 15 minutes; jawline fillers can take 30 minutes. Any small amount of post injection discomfort should disappear within a day. Minor swelling or bruising should subside in 1-2 days.
Results are not permanent and will vary by individual. The body gradually metabolizes the hyaluronic acid, so patients will eventually need additional injections. Some patients may be able to wait a year or more for further treatment. Others may need it sooner. Chin fillers tend to last a little longer than other fillers.
