Jawline & Chin Augmentation
The jawline and chin can considerably contribute to the ageing look of the face. Over time, the collagen and elastin in our skin breaks down and our muscles begin to lose their tone. This causes the skin to sag resulting in the formation of jowls. The cheeks also begin to slip downwards towards the jaw causing these jowls to appear more prominent.
We are able to enhance an undefined jawline with dermal fillers to give the jaw more definition and in turn disguise any jowl formation.
A chin that is too small or too short in relation to the rest of the face can make the face look less balanced. Dermal fillers can be used to subtly add shape and definition, to help restore harmony to the face.
What does this procedure involve?
Hyaluronic acid based fillers are injected into the jawline and/or chin area to recontour the area of concern. A needle or cannula is used to administer the filler.
What results will I see and are there any side effects?
The results for this treatment are seen immediately. The area may feel tender to touch and there might be mild signs of bruising which will subside within 48 hours. Most patients resume their normal day to day activities straight after treatment.
What will happen at my consultation?
