What are dermal fillers?
Most dermal fillers are soft smooth gels that are made of a substance that occurs naturally in our body. This substance gives the skin its natural structural support, as well as acts as a lubricant and shock absorber in movable parts of the body such as joints.
Dermal fillers are tissue friendly and long lasting. They revitalise and add volume to the skin, instantly diminishing the appearance of lines and wrinkles and restoring lost volume, giving a rejuvenated, very natural, softer look.
Because dermal fillers are natural gels, they are bio-compatible, non permanent, rarely cause reactions and can be easily dissolved if required.
How do dermal fillers enhance the chin ?
Dermal fillers provide a non-surgical alternative that allows you to balance your profile by augmenting a weak or receding chin without the downtime and risk associated with surgical chin implants. Chin enhancement can also sharpen the jaw line and creates the illusion of firmer skin with reduced jowling. Dermal fillers are also used to eliminate wrinkles on the chin, to help elevate a “sad” downwards turning mouth or to smooth unattractive dimpling.
Microinjections of soft dermal fillers are strategically placed to improve the shape and forward protrusion of the chin.
Dermal fillers are sometimes used in conjunction with muscle relaxants or anti-wrinkle injections for best effect.
