Chin and Jawline
Chin and Jawline treatment is an advanced procedure; Volumising dermal fillers are used to lift the skin, contour the jawline and restructure the chin.
How does it work?
Special volumising dermal fillers from the Juvéderm Vycross® range are used in this advanced technique to improve facial structure. They also improve the skins texture and create a more youthful and rejuvenated appearance. These dermal fillers contain hyaluronic acid, a natural substance that already exists within our skin as well as a local anaesthetic to make the treatment more comfortable. The technology in the Vycross® range enables easy moulding, with minimal swelling and longer-lasting more natural results.
Chin treatment: Many people overlook the chin when having treatments, but it plays a key part in the appearance of the lower face particularly in supporting the lower lip and marionette lines. Dermal fillers are used in the area to give more structure, reduce cobblestone appearance, improve the projection of a flattened chin, rotate the chin up or lengthen the chin if required. For men, widening of the chin can be achieved and for women eliminating dimples is also a popular treatment.
Augmentation of the chin is closely related to the Jaw line too…
Jaw treatment: Dermal fillers are used in the jawline to widen or thin the face. They also lift the skin which reduces sagging jowls and improves the definition of the jawline. This can be a stand-alone treatment but is often used in combination with other dermal fillers such as cheek enhancement.
