The key to a beautiful face is balance. Did you know that a more prominent or projected chin can make your face look slimmer and your nose look smaller?
The use of a dermal filler can enhance the shape and size of the chin and jawline, restoring a sense of harmony and proportion to the face. Facial fillers can correct the appearance of an asymmetrical or pointy chin, help sharpen and define the jawline, and even improves the look of jowls.
Before and After
Maybe you were born with a smaller chin, or perhaps you lost some of the projection you once had due to age. As we get older, we lose bone and soft tissue in the chin, and our skin becomes slack. This can obscure the distinction between the jawline and neck. Fat may also accumulate under the chin with age, causing loss of definition. You may be a candidate for Kybella, an injectable treatment that destroys small pockets of fat cells. Kybella can be used in addition to jawline filler to give a more defined look.
Most of the filler on the market today is made of hyaluronic acid, a substance that occurs naturally in our skin and helps keep it plump and hydrated. It has a gel-like consistency and is injected underneath the skin to restore volume, smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, or enhance the contours of the face. The results achieved with this type of filler can last up to a year or two, but this varies based on several factors, including how long it takes your body to absorb and metabolize the hyaluronic acid. If for any reason you’re not happy with the result, there is an enzyme that can be used to dissolve these fillers.
If you’d like a more lasting result, you can choose to have Bellafill injected to enhance your chin or jawline. Bellafill lasts a minimum of five years and is an excellent choice for deeper structural filling such as this.
