Chin Filler Injection: Do I Need It?

There’s no doubt that tweaking minor facial imperfections can elevate one’s appearance. This is particularly evident when it comes to chin augmentation. Chin filler injections, Toronto can transform the lower face by creating more structural support and better symmetry. It can also improve the side view profile

If you’re reading this blog you may be curious and wondering if chin filler can help you look better. In fact, most people, women and men, can benefit from some degree of lower face contouring. To know for sure, a consultation with a qualified and experienced injector can help you determine if you’re a good candidate. In the meantime, here are some general guidelines about chin filler and what it can do for you.

Improve Facial Symmetry

In nature symmetry equals beauty. When you transfer this concept to facial harmony, the ideal chin has good definition and is proportionate to the rest of the face. Take a look at your side profile in the mirror. Is your chin in line with your forehead and nose? If the answer is yes, congratulations! You have perfect chin symmetry.

On the other hand, if your chin recedes more inwards than your nose, your lower jaw is considerably shorter than the upper, or you have a double chin, then treating your chin with filler can help you achieving better lower face definition, contours and overall facial harmony.

Give Structure by Mimicking Bone

Whether it’s due to genetics or the aging process, a diminished chin can make the jawline appear weaker, the nose appear larger, and give the impression of a blurred neck arch. Fortunately, we now have highly advanced and specialized dermal fillers that are dense enough to mimic bone.

These types of fillers are injected quite deep, along the bone to create structure and support. For someone with mild-to-moderate skin laxity, this treatment can conceal the appearance of bone loss for improved chin projection and more youthful profile. Once the restoration is complete, additional filler can be administered to the chin and surrounding areas (such as the cheeks and jawline) for a more sculpted look.

What to Expect with Chin Filler?

On the day of the procedure, your injector will clean and prepare the area for treatment. Using a fine needle, a small amount of filler is precisely injected into the soft tissues of the chin. The practitioner may then massage and mould the filler into place to create the desired aesthetic. Although results are visible right away, it can take a few weeks for the filler to settle in and look its best.

Immediately after treatment it’s normal to experience some swelling and bruising. For most people serious side-effects are rare but can include infection, scarring and filler migration. For this reason it’s recommended to follow post-care procedures very carefully. Most people are able to return to normal life right away; however, it’s recommended to wait a few days before engaging in exercising or other strenuous activities.
