chin augmentation

A chin that recedes or doesn’t protrude as much as other features can often leave the face unbalanced. Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation is a safe, non-invasive alternative to traditional chin enhancement. The procedure involves injecting dermal filler into precise areas of the chin in order to change the appearance and create a more balanced look.

An ‘orange peel’ chin is the term used to describe a chin that, when puckered (and sometimes also at rest) has the appearance of orange peel, with textural changes and pitting. While there is no medical cause for concern if you have a dimply orange peel texture on your chin, you might feel self-conscious about it. Luckily, orange peel skin with pitting or creases can be corrected with a combination of medical aesthetic procedures, which aim to improve collagen and elastin synthesis, reduce laxity, and smooth wrinkles. Orange peel chin is caused by frequent and excessive flexing of the chin muscles (the mentalis muscles), causing the chin to look bumpy and / or uneven.

Dimpling and wrinkling in the chin can be part of the natural aging process of our face. As we get older, we lose volume in the chin so that the visible movement of the muscle creates this pebbling, ‘orange-peel’ effect. Sun damage is also to blame, and the more sun damage in youth, the more likely you will be to pay the price with orange peel skin later in life.

Our chin augmentation procedure is a method of aesthetically enhancing the balance of your facial features with the use of dermal fillers. By adjusting the height, width and projection of the chin, we can bring your facial features into perfect balance and give you the jawline you desire.

Chin filler is a form of dermal fillers, which consist of gel made from proteins and hyaluronic acid (HA). Fillers are very safe. The procedure is fast and can even be done on your lunch break. There is no downtime, so you can return to work right after the procedure. Though dermal fillers aren’t permanent, they can last for eighteen months or more, making them a great option for those who want to make small tweaks in their facial features without surgery.
