One of the most underrated aesthetic treatments, a chin enhancement can greatly enhance an individual’s appearance and provides a multitude of benefits. Using dermal filler, we can alter the projection of the chin augmentation in Nottingham to bring it more in line with the lips and nose, creating a beautiful and balanced side profile. This treatment will contour and define the lower face, make the nose appear smaller, create a more prominent bone structure and make the face appear slimmer.
During the ageing process, we lose volume from various areas on our face as bone and muscle mass decreases. This can be particularly prominent in the lower face, resulting in a weak chin. By treating this area with dermal filler, we can restore volume lost with ageing to create a more youthful appearance.
The results can be tailored at our aesthetics clinic depending on the client’s goals, whether that be a more dramatic result or a subtle, natural enhancement. This treatment works well in conjunction with a jawline enhancement, to add further definition and structure to the lower face.
How much product is needed for chin enhancement in the East Midlands?
As the dermal filler in a chin augmentation is placed deeply and directly onto bone, more product is needed when compared with other areas. We generally recommend 1ml for a more subtle enhancement and 2ml for a more dramatic one. However, this depends entirely on the individual client’s natural anatomy. A client who naturally has a more defined chin will need less product, while someone with less definition may need more.
What products are used?
At Second Look Aesthetics, we use Revolax Sub Q for chin augmentation treatments.
How long does the chin augmentation treatment take?
The chin augmentation treatment in Nottingham takes around 20 minutes to complete. This includes a consultation so that we can gain a better understanding of the results you are hoping to achieve. Following this, we conduct an in-depth facial assessment to determine your suitability and recommend the appropriate amount of product depending on your goals, numb the area and administer the treatment.
How long do the results last?
Your results will last 9-12 months. This will vary depending on the individual client, as someone with a fast metabolism will find they do not last as long, while someone with a slower metabolism will find they last longer. The more chin augmentation sessions you have, the longer your results will last as you will create a build-up of the product.
Are there any side effects?
The most common side effects are very minimal. You may notice minimal bruising, swelling, tenderness and redness in the days following your treatment. Most clients experience no downtime and any symptoms can be easily managed with over-the-counter medication. Full healing will take 1-2 weeks at which point you should have no remaining side effects. We will provide full aftercare instructions following your treatment and our team at our aesthetics clinic is on hand to assist at any point should you have any discomfort or concerns.
Is the chin enhancement treatment painful?
This treatment is almost completely painless and instead feels like pressure on your chin. We use clinical grade numbing cream to ensure your comfort during treatment and there is Lidocaine in the dermal filler to further numb the area as the product is being injected.
