The chin is one of the more subtle areas of the face, but it’s also one that makes a big difference in terms of the overall looks. Many people struggle with a chin that is not in proportion to their faces.
Some patients are born with a chin that lacks length or projection and as a consequence appears too small for their face
As we age we lose bone around the jaw, and the chin is one of the primary areas where this occurs. In addition to losing length and projection, it can accentuate the appearance of jowls
The chin is different depending on the sex of the patient. In females, it is more attractive to have a narrower and pointy chin, whereas a male chin is broader set.
Dr. Faisal will assess each case individually and create a treatment plan depending on the deficiency and the goals of each patient
The use of filler has offered a solution in the treatment of the chin.
Hyaluronic acid filler offers a minimally invasive method to reshape the chin
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring sugar that exists within the body.
A synthetic form of hyaluronic acid has been used in cosmetic practice for many years. It is a very safe substance and is known to have a very low complication profile
When placed inside the body it absorbs water like a sponge, causing the volume to increase. The absorption of water hydrates the skin.
Dr. Faisal only uses the most reputable brands of Hyaluronic acid. His priority is to use products that have the highest safety standards combined with the best results and longest-lasting outcomes
His preferred partners are the Juvederm®️ range by Allergan®️, Restylane®️ by Galderma®️ and Teoxane®️
Different viscosities of filler allow for different applications. The chin requires shaping, so a thicker filler is the ideal choice
The procedure will happen while you are awake
Local anaesthetic numbing cream will be applied 30 minutes prior to the procedure
Hyaluronic acid typically comes in 1 cc syringes and for this, you will need about 2 cc's
A very fine needle is used to perform the procedure
It is normally completed within 15-20 minutes
You are able to go home immediately after treatment
The filler is pliable for a couple of days after the procedure so it is advisable to avoid putting pressure on it
There may be mild discomfort at the injection sites. This is easily managed with paracetamol
The results may look exaggerated at the start, however, the body encapsulates the filler and the result smoothes out over the next couple of weeks
