The chin is a significant area that displays the ageing part, especially in middle age women and above. Loss of deep sustaining fat here, connected with gum recession and loss of bone, affects the lower face causing a wrinkled or pouty chin.
The chin crease beneath the lips is also induced by tissue loss or sagging skin. And, in the fifties, the mentalis muscle becomes hyperactive to recompense for sagging skin, ending in a pebbly or dimpled look of the chin for a ‘witchy chin look’.
Chin augmentation at The Skin Nurse Clinic gives the face proportion. It describes the jaw so that facial features are in harmony. This procedure can be done through surgery, but this involves downtime with bruising & swelling up to 6 weeks after the treatment.
Alternatively, there is a non-surgical chin augmentation treatment that’s quick, safe & effective for a natural, balanced aesthetic appearance.
What is chin augmentation treatment?
For less severe flaws of the chin, or for jowls, a double chin or a pointed witchy jaw, we offer dermal fillers as chin augmentation treatment options. These are clear & high-quality hyaluronic acid gels that closely mimic the natural hyaluronic acid inside our skin.
They are vaccinated just beneath the surface of the skin for a lifted look. The procedure smoothes lines & wrinkles & improve facial proportions. Hyaluronic acid softens, volumises and hydrates the skin. It also aids collagen & elastin organisation beneath the surface which gives the skin a revived, more rejuvenated appearance.
What can chin augmentation treatment be used for?
Dermal fillers can be utilised most effectively & quickly to restore areas of lost volume in the face that happens as we age, which often adds to the sag & jowling. Strategic & skilful placement of filler can lift & support the face generally with no call for a surgical procedure. Chins can be remodelled & given more clarity/sharpness.
