Dermal fillers are mostly associated with lips or cheeks, but they are being increasingly used by aestheticians to enhance and shape other areas of the face and neck. Dermal fillers can transform the overall look of the face by balancing out and perfecting certain features. Previously, when people considered chin or jawline transformations, surgery was the only option. Now we have a quicker, more cost-effective and lower-risk option for our clients! Dermal fillers are quick, straight forward and (relatively) painless solution to modify any problem areas and give patients their ideal face shape and a more youthful appearance.

As we age, collagen and elastin fibres in the dermis break down over time and muscles lose some of their tones and we start to notice “sagging”. This is a look we associate with ageing when the skin on cheeks begins to hang downwards, or below the jaw. Wrinkles can form around the chin and marionette lines develop. Therefore, the chin and jawline massively contribute to the ageing look of the face. Some may argue that the secret to a youthful look lies in the jawbone. Therefore, the chin is the perfect area to use dermal fillers to subtly add shape and definition, helping to create a more youthful look!

For younger patients, chin filler is the perfect solution for problem areas such as a recessed chin or weak jawline. Augmenting the chin, even slightly, can balance facial features and give the ever so sought-after V-shaped jawline. Chin filler can even out a pointy or squared chin and can even make a prominent nose appear smaller! Overall, the main advantages of chin filler are that it adds shape, definition and smoothness to the area!


Results are instant! With the effects improving over 14 days! Dermal fillers in and around the chin area are becoming more and more popular because the treatment is quick, non-invasive and more affordable than surgery! The results are almost instant and improve over 14 days, with the filler settling into the skin tissue. The results are so natural and typically last up to 12-18 months before requiring a top-up!
