With ageing, the chin becomes flat and depressed due to loss of volume which suppresses other features of your face. In addition to the loss of chin’s volume, a deep horizontal groove can form across the chin forming what is also known as the ‘mental crease’ which contributes to the ageing appearance. If overlooked, this groove becomes really deep giving your face an unnaturally older and unpleasant look.
The usual factors such as dermal thinning, bony resorption, soft tissue loss and reduced elasticity are all contributory as well as dental changes contribute to this condition. Overactive muscles in the chin can lead to dimpling as well as a prominent crease.
At CosmeDocs, our qualified, trained and experienced cosmetic practitioners can effectively address both the issues to enhance the chin and soften the appearance of the mental crease. The treatment approach that we adopt uses a combination of botox and dermal fillers. Weakening the mentalis muscle reduces causative active movement and dermal fillers can be used to soften the crease.
We only use safe and approved products which give natural and youthful results. While having the treatment from our clinic, you can have peace of mind that your procedure is performed by only qualified, trained and highly experienced hands. Our experts are not just qualified cosmetic practitioners; they have immaculate skills and creative eye to give you the optimal aesthetic outcomes.
Our cosmetic practitioner will carefully examine your facial features and analyse the area of concerns before performing any of the procedures.
A small quantity of Botox is injected in the mentalis muscle just near the tip of your chin which relaxes the muscle. This helps to soften the appearance of the mental crease. We pay special attention to not to overdo this area, as more Botox can affect your capability of lip puckering.
Once the mental crease is softened, dermal fillers injections are also given along your mental crease which helps in filling the crease. It prevents further deepening of the mental crease.
The pictures shown below clearly exhibit the difference between before and after the chin mental crease treatment.
For chin augmentation, our skilful cosmetic practitioners take the lateral as well as an interior view of your chin through pictures. Before the treatment, it is important to exclude the possibilities of any dental issues or bony structure conditions because chin augmentation with fillers can only modify the soft tissues. Our cosmetic practitioners will comprehensively examine your facial concerns in addition to the chin. If found any other concern, we will recommend the other possibilities.
The chin enhancement procedure generally needs a firm support so dermal filler such as Radiesse or hyaluronic acid-based filler are used, which gives a firm filling or scaffolding effect to the chin is used.
During the chin augmentation treatment, the jawline may also need attention to balance the overall look. The small quantities of botox in both the jaw muscles located on either side of the face can be given which relaxes these muscles leading to softer and contoured jawline.
Our proficient aesthetic practitioners choose the suitable dose of dermal fillers and botox based on your facial assessment and individual requirements.
The pictures shown below clearly exhibit the difference between before and after the chin augmentation and jawline contouring treatment. The chin is visibly enhanced with contoured Jawline to give an improved and refreshed lower face look.
Generally, chin treatment has a very low rate of risks. You can expect to experience slight swelling, bruising, and redness at the sites of injection and mild muscles weakness and headaches in case of Botox injections. However, these are temporary conditions which resolve in a few hours or in a day or two. If any of these conditions persist for longer, immediately consult your practitioner.
The results of dermal fillers will be instantly visible while the full combined results of botox and dermal fillers take about 2-8 days to become visible. Therefore, you should come for a review appointment after this period.
