Treating A Weak Chin With Chin Fillers


Treating A Weak Chin With Chin Fillers

Facial balance is determined by dividing the face into horizontal and vertical sections, with the alignment of the eyes, nose and chin playing a vital role in perceived attractiveness. In profile view, a well-proportioned face has a gentle convex structure, however, when the angle between the nose and the chin is too great, it affects facial harmony. The sloping of the lower face towards the neck is commonly known as a weak chin and, although unharmful, many seek redefinition with procedures such as chin fillers. 


What Causes A Weak Chin?

An excessively set-back chin compared with the upper jaw is known as retrogenia and is often determined by genetics. It may also occur due to congenital conditions such as Pierre Robin Sequence or Treacher-Collins syndrome. The chin also begins to recede as a natural part of ageing. With time, our bones lose density and the soft tissue around the jaw no longer retains its definition. This can lead the chin appearing set back in relation to the face.   


How To Treat A Weak Chin With Chin Fillers

Dermal Fillers redefine facial areas without the risks and downtime associated with surgery. After assessing facial balance, your practitioner will inject filler into target areas, adding volume and bringing the chin back into proportion with the rest of the face. Treating a weak chin creates a well-defined jawline, restores facial harmony and can make the nose appear smaller. 

Chin Augmentation at North West Aesthetics starts at as little as £199. 


Juvéderm® Voluma™ 

Juvéderm® Voluma™ is part of the Vycross range of Dermal Fillers created by Allergan. Like other Juvéderm products, its primary ingredient is hyaluronic acid, however, Vycross technology allows high and low molecular weights to combine, improving its cross-linking capacity. This makes the solution harder for the body to break down, providing longer-lasting results. A follow-up appointment may not be needed for up to two years. 

Once injected, the Voluma™ solution is moulded to visibly lift and shape the chin. In one simple treatment, the lower face is redefined, which improves the client’s physical appearance as well as boosting their self-confidence and mental well-being.
