Chin Filler Brisbane

The chin helps to shape the face and, along with the jawline, defines the lower third of the face. Making changes to the appearance of the chin using dermal fillers can help to create the appearance of a strong chin and create a visual balance between the forehead, nose and chin. Treatments with dermal fillers can be highly personalised so that each patient’s treatment plan can be tailored to their unique features and preferences.

“As we age, the chin can become broader and square, which can make a woman’s face appear more masculine. I employ a technique to triangulate the chin again using dermal filler, thereby creating a finer and more feminine shape of the chin.” – Dr. Scott Allison.

What is chin filler (dermal filler)?

Dermal fillers are a pliable gel substance typically composed of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring compound within our bodies. Once injected beneath the skin, these fillers can add volume to precise areas.

Various dermal fillers are utilised for distinct purposes – more solid fillers shape and provide structural support. In comparison, softer fillers promote skin hydration and can reduce the visibility of fine lines and wrinkles.

What changes can we make with chin filler?

Projection of the Chin

Retrusion of the chin can give the impression of a shortened face in profile and fullness under the chin. Strengthening the projection or vertical height of the chin will support these soft tissue structures allowing for more definition of the lower face.

Shape

Dermal fillers, applied to specific areas of the chin, can make some changes to the shape of the chin. This can be done according to each patient’s personal preferences. Generally, when it comes to shape, there are some gender differences that we consider when creating the treatment plan. Men will typically have a more squared contour to the chin apex, whereas women will typically have a chin contour that comes to a finer point. However, the details of your treatment plan will be tailored to your needs and discussed in detail before your appointment.

Symmetry

It is very common for one side of the chin bone to sit lower than the other. If patients prefer, this asymmetry can be evened with dermal filler.

Smoothing of Skin

One of the facial muscles within the chin affects the skin of the chin area and can cause a dimpling effect. This often becomes more pronounced when the lips pursed together. A combination of dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections can relax the muscle and smooth the overlying skin.

Angle of the Chin

We lose bone mass and support in the chin and jawline as we age. This causes an upturning of the chin and a down turning to the corners of the mouth. Using dermal filler, we can make changes to provide more aesthetic support to the chin and jawline.

Potential benefits of chin filler

Chin fillers provide a minimally invasive treatment option that delivers temporary outcomes, making them suitable for individuals seeking alternatives to surgical interventions.

Opting for non-surgical cosmetic injectables entails a less intense post-treatment care routine and allows for results that can be modified or reversed.

This personalised approach ensures the treatment aligns precisely with your preferences and considers your distinctive facial features.

Pricing

Pricing for Lip Chin varies based on individual needs, as the required dosages differ. Prices start at $580.

Risks and side effects

Under the knowledge of experienced nurses and doctors, dermal fillers can be performed in a way that closely considers all potential risks and side effects.

While the recovery period is generally brief, it is normal to encounter temporary swelling and redness, which typically resolve within a few days. Discolouration, bleeding, or bruising may occur after your treatment.

Risks of dermal fillers can include infection, lumpiness, and improper filler distribution. Complications such as improper injection into a blood vessel can carry significant risks.

If dermal filler has been placed incorrectly, a dissolver may be able to be used with precision to change the results. If you experience any signs of infection or other complications, contact the clinic as soon as possible for further advice.

Recovery and aftercare

Recovery after dermal fillers is typically brief, although it is common to experience some bruising or swelling. This will usually diminish within a few days. To alleviate any residual discomfort, taking mild pain medication can be helpful. You will need to follow the advice given by your injector closely.

After receiving your filler treatment, you should refrain from applying makeup for at least four hours. Strenuous exercise should be avoided for the following 24 hours, and swimming is best avoided for a week. It is also recommended to abstain from alcohol for 24 hours after the procedure, as it can increase bruising.

Dermal chin filler typically lasts about six to 18 months. Factors such as the injection site, individual metabolism, and the specific type of filler utilised contribute to the longevity of the results. While the effects can be long-lasting, maintenance treatments will be necessary to maintain your results in the longer term. You can speak to one of our team members about a long-term treatment plan.

Suitable candidates for chin filler treatments

When considering chin filler treatment, several factors come into play to determine a candidate’s suitability.

Candidates should be in good physical and mental health. Openly communicating any underlying health conditions or medications being taken during the consultation with the injector is crucial.

Realistic expectations also play a vital role in the process. Candidates will need to have a clear understanding of both the capabilities and limitations of chin fillers and recognise that individual factors, such as facial anatomy and response to the treatment, can influence the results is essential.

When it comes to the appropriate age for the procedure, chin fillers are typically recommended for adults who have reached an ideal level of facial maturity. The injector considers factors like skin elasticity and bone structure to determine if the candidate is suitable for the treatment.

During an in-person consultation, one of our injectors will thoroughly assess the candidate’s facial anatomy. They will also discuss the candidate’s treatment goals and expectations. By evaluating these various factors, the injector can make an informed decision about the candidate’s suitability for chin filler treatment. A consultation will also help a candidate make an informed decision as to whether or not they would like to undergo the procedure.

A typical treatment session with chin fillers

Before your chin filler treatment, your nurse or Dr Scott Allison will clean your skin to remove bacteria.

With precision and following the details of your treatment plan, the injector will administer the chin filler using a fine needle. The injector will maintain open communication throughout the session, prioritising your comfort and well-being. They will attentively assess the treatment progress, monitor the injection sites and adjust their technique.

To ensure proper filler distribution, the injector may massage the treated area once the injections are complete.

The treatment session time can vary depending on your treatment plan, but a chin filler procedure typically takes 15 to 30 minutes.

A topical numbing cream may be applied to manage your comfort throughout the procedure. Some chin fillers contain a local anaesthetic that takes effect immediately after administering the injections.
