Some of the reasons people would like a non-surgical chin augmentation include men who may feel a less distinctive chin makes them appear less manly and would like it enhanced. Women may feel they were born with a chin that is too small and it doesn’t fit in well with their overall facial features. Both men and women may be concerned that a small chin makes the border between face and neck less distinctive. This may make the lower face age more rapidly by allowing jowls and neck fullness appear earlier. Retrognathia is the medical terminology for a recessive chin.
Dermal fillers are a non-surgical method that can be used to augment the appearance of your chin.
Just one of your options is Radiesse, a volumizing filler that is a painless, quick, safe method of adding fullness to the chin with immediate results. This injectable filler is applied to the chin after numbing with a topical agent. Small amounts with a fine needle are precisely injected to bring your chin into balance with your other facial features. You may experience minor swelling and possibly bruising for several days following treatment but this will spontaneously resolve.
The natural contour of your chin will be enhanced, and depending of your wishes, it can be a dramatic or subtle change.
Although the results of Radiesse are temporary, they can last up to a year, with additional treatments keeping up with any further changes that may have occurred to your chin.
Sculptra is another option for non-surgical chin augmentation. Sculptra helps stimulate your own collagen production and can have results lasting at least two years. Dr. Halaas is an expert trainer to other facial plastic surgeons in New York and dermatologists on the use of Sculptra and has performed this procedure multiple times.
