Dermal Filler – Jaw/Chin Augmentation
Jaw Augmentation and/or Chin Augmentation treatments help to provide a more defined jaw and chin which can restore patients confidence. As we age our jaw and chin begin to lose volume as our bone density reduces and the skin on our face thins.
The non-surgical jaw and/or chin augmentation and reshaping involves the use of dermal filler which is injected into the jaw / chin area to contour and reshape the cheek giving a natural more defined appearance.
What Are Hyaluronic Acid Fillers for Jaw and/or Chin Augmentation?
Dermal Fillers help to replenish lost skin volume and improve your looks instantly and naturally. The only option available until recently was surgical jaw remodelling to add volume and contour to the jaw area.
Now with our minimally invasive, low downtime treatment using dermal filler we can provide a long lasting treatment adding both volume and definition to the face giving a more youthful appearance and boosted confidence.
The dermal fillers are combined with a local anaesthetic to numb the treatment area, then the dermal fillers are injected into the skin with a very fine needle to lift you face with natural volume. The procedure leaves your skin feeling hydrated and youthful.
We also offer dermal fillers to many other areas. Please see the menu above.
All of our patients seeking injectable treatments are given a full consultation with Dr Woodcock to ensure they fully understand the treatment, their expectations and motivation.
Dr Woodcock will deliver your treatment to achieve the optimal natural looking result.
Frequently Asked Questions
- +How Does It Work?
The dermal fillers we use contain hyaluronic acid which occurs naturally in our skin. It attracts water and acts as a cushioning agent. The injection fills lines and replaces lost volume. Over time these injections encourage collagen production. The product is derived from a bacteria which is purified so poses no risk of infection. It contains no animal or human product.
- +How Do You Administer the Treatment?
- Your skin will be medically cleansed followed by the application of a numbing cream to the areas to be treated.
The dermal fillers are then injected with a small needle or cannula into the desired areas. The dermal filler contains local anaesthetic to make the procedure more comfortable. Most people report a little discomfort during the injections but not pain.
If you are concerned about pain or you have a needle phobia, please ask your practitioner for further guidance.
