Chin Fillers

Chin dermal fillers are a non-surgical cosmetic treatment designed to enhance the shape and definition of the chin by adding volume and contour to the chin area. This addresses common areas of concern like a recessed/weak chin, dimpling, or asymmetry.

With minimal discomfort and downtime, chin dermal fillers can be used to provide a more well-defined and sculpted chin, thus providing a natural-looking improvement in facial balance and profile. 

At BMF Clinic, our preferred chin fillers are JUVEDERM® VOLUMA® and JUVÉDERM® VOLUX®, both of which are designed to effectively improve chin and jawline definition.

How chin fillers help improve your profile? 

Improving a weak chin can produce pleasing outcomes. There are two primary reasons why a client might find chin fillers beneficial:
•    To create a slimmer appearance for the face
•    To address a recessed or weak chin profile


Fillers for a recessed chin / weak chin profile

A recessed chin happens when the chin is positioned further back horizontally than desired. It's often called a weak or receding chin and is more common in Asians because of their facial bone structure. It can greatly affect how the face looks. A recessed chin can make the lips or nose stick out more, and it can also make the jawline less defined.

Chin fillers can be used to add volume to a recessed chin and create a more prominent chin shape.


Chin fillers for a V-Shaped Face

Chin fillers are also effective for defining the chin and creating a slimmer appearance for the face. Since shorter facial profiles are common among Asians, chin fillers can help enhance and elongate the face to achieve the ideal facial proportions.

The facial golden ratio suggests that the upper, middle, and lower parts of the face should be balanced in thirds. Many Asian women find this procedure appealing as it helps achieve a more slender and feminine facial appearance.


What can you expect?

A stronger, more sculpted chin, as well as a sharper chin can be expected. A sharper and slimmer face with a stronger jawline can also be achieved.

How long do fillers last?

Generally, fillers last for 12 months. Different type of fillers are meant for different areas of the face and have different longevity due to the filler material. 

Does the filler completely dissolve away?

Typically, fillers dissolve naturally over time as the body breaks them down into water. However, there have been instances where fillers lasted longer than expected. In these cases, a dissolver called hyalase is injected to break down the filler into water.

Is the procedure painful?

Most filler injections are typically not painful when numbing cream is applied. However, certain areas like the lips can be more sensitive and may cause more discomfort. Do note that the expertise and technique of the doctor also play a role in determining the level of discomfort. An experienced and gentle doctor can significantly reduce discomfort during the procedure.

What are the possible side effects?

Like any medical procedure, injectable procedures carry potential side effects.

The most common side effects of injections include bruising and swelling, which occur when a larger blood vessel beneath the skin is injured during the injection. Typically, bruising and swelling subside within 4-7 days.

One of the most serious side effects of filler injections is vessel occlusion, where the filler obstructs blood flow in a crucial blood vessel, potentially leading to skin necrosis or even blindness.

There's a misconception that only nose fillers can cause blindness, but fillers injected anywhere on the face can pose this risk. Blindness occurs when filler material blocks blood flow to the optic nerve in the eye. The proximity of blood vessels supplying the eye to the nose makes nose fillers particularly risky. Skin necrosis, the death of skin cells, occurs when blood vessels supplying a specific area of skin become blocked.

Understanding facial blood vessels is crucial to minimizing these risks, emphasizing the importance of seeking treatment from experienced doctors. 

What should I avoid after fillers?

Avoid strenuous exercise and alcohol for at least 24 hours. Avoid any facial massage for at least 2 weeks.

What is the downtime for recovery?

There is almost no downtime when undergoing fillers. After the procedure, clients can go back to most of their daily activities except for the strenuous ones. During the recovery period, a proper sleeping position must be observed especially in the first few days. Sleeping facing up is advised. Avoid touching, massaging, or pricking around the injection area to avoid complications or infections.
