And this is our guide to everything you should know about chin fillers.
What are chin fillers?
Chin fillers are a specific type of dermal filler, injected into the tissue of the chin. These injections contain hyaluronic acid, which is a naturally occurring substance found throughout the skin. As part of the ageing process, the quantity of the hyaluronic acid found throughout the facial skin is reduced, which speeds up the breaking down process of collagen and elastin. These are vital cell components that provide volume and elasticity to the skin tissue and without these, the facial structure can change, leading to wrinkles and sagging skin. As a result, dermal filler injections can replace this lost nourishment and structure, adding volume and structure to the chin.
What are the top reasons to choose chin fillers?
There are a number of reasons why many people choose chin fillers. These include:
- Balancing out asymmetry – facial asymmetry usually means that once side of the face, or a particular facial feature, is not quite balanced with the other. For some people, this can drain self confidence and be a cause for concern. Dermal filler injections into the chin can easily balance out this asymmetry, restructuring the chin with additional volume. This should only be carried out by a professional, trained practitioner, to ensure that the visual results are natural and in line with your overall facial structure. In addition, for this type of procedure, only a very small amount of filler is often necessary, and too much can have a negative impact on the overall visual result.
- Filling in a chin dimple – chin dimples are like marmite, people tend to love them or hate them. For those that hate their chin dimple, dermal fillers can be the perfect solution. Just as small amounts of dermal filler can balance out asymmetrical facial features, this can also be used to fill the hollow of a chin dimple, and raise this to the level of the rest of the chin. By doing so, a smooth result can be achieved. This is also a very effective procedure for smoothing out the tiny hollows that can be associated with acne scarring.
- Changing the shape of the chin or jawline overall – increasing the volume and adding strength to the jawline overall is a great option to tackle one of the common signs of ageing: sagging skin. By adding structure to the lower half of the face, the facial shape can be transformed, helping to maintain more youthful appearance. As part of this, the chin should also be included with chin fillers to maintain a smooth and level jawline shape. In addition, chin fillers and jawline fillers are also associated with procedures to enhance masculine features that can help to pronounce and achieve a more masculine square or strong jawline.
