Non-Surgical Chin Augmentation
For those who desire a more prominent and shapelier V-line, to balance the face and improve symmetry, fillers are a possible solution. Chin fillers provide a temporary and non-invasive alternative to address minor aesthetic improvements, that could previously only be done in a plastic surgery augmentation procedure. It is comparably cheap, minimally invasive and has little downtime.
At ‘The Wellness Suite’, we use dermal or soft-tissue fillers to improve facial contouring, volumizing, wrinkle treatment and face lifting enhancement. Fillers like Ellansé™ work by stimulating the body’s own natural collagen for instantaneous long lasting enhancement results, eliminating the need for frequent repeat treatments.
Replenishing hyaluronic acid fillers, such as Juvederm, Restylane and Teosyal, are another type of filler. Their tissue-friendly attributes mean that they do not damage the natural chin tissue. This is because the components of hyaluronic acid fillers are identical to the hyaluronic acid that is naturally present in the body.
What are the results?
Results are visible immediately after the treatment. The enhancement will look natural and can last anywhere between 1 – 2 years, depending on the type of filler, patient age, skin type, and health condition.
What is the treatment like?
The quick procedure involves the administration of injections after a numbing cream has been applied to the to be treated area, to minimise any pain or discomfort. The downtime after a chin filler treatment is typically 0 – 2 days. There may be some redness, light pain, swelling or bruising, immediately after the procedure.
