PROJECTION OF THE CHIN
Retrusion of the chin can give the impression of a shortened face in profile and fullness under the chin. Strengthening the projection or vertical height of the chin will support these soft tissue structures allowing for more definition of the lower face.
Enhancing the projection of the chin can address issues of chin retrusion, which may give the impression of a shortened face in profile and fullness under the chin. Strengthening the vertical height of the chin provides better support to soft tissue structures, resulting in improved definition of the lower face.
Addressing asymmetry is another benefit of chin filler, as it is common for one side of the chin bone to sit lower than the other. By using dermal filler, the chin’s symmetry can be evened out, leading to a more balanced and proportionate appearance.
SMOOTHING OF SKIN
Dermal fillers can help smooth the skin in the chin area. The presence of a facial muscle within the chin can cause dimpling when the lips are pursed together. Combining dermal filler with anti-wrinkle injections can relax the muscle and smooth the overlying skin, reducing the appearance of dimpling.
ANGLE OF THE CHIN
As we age, the chin and jawline may lose bone mass and support, resulting in an upturning of the chin and a downturning of the corners of the mouth. By using dermal fillers, aesthetic support can be provided to the chin and jawline, leading to a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance.
