Discover a refreshed, revitalised version of yourself with injectable chin fillers – an increasingly popular non-surgical solution in Singapore to achieve an enhanced jawline and youthful look.

However, it is crucial to note that the decision to use such products depends on the clinical assessment and judgement of the medical professionals and requires informed discussion with the patients.

What is Chin Filler? What Does Chin Augmentation Do?

Chin filler is a non-surgical procedure that transforms the definition of the chin. For people who want a balanced facial structure or a youthful-looking face, chin filler is a popular procedure.

The injection for chin fillers contains Hyaluronic Acid (HA), which is a popular anti-ageing humectant. This provides volume to the chin area, increases chin projection and height, and improves the shape of the chin by reducing the appearance of saggy skin around the jaw. With a process that necessitates the use of medical devices, this procedure must be performed by or under the supervision of the doctor in the clinic.

Ultimately, chin fillers are a temporary option to reshape or enhance the size of the chin. If you are looking for an alternative to permanent chin implant surgery, chin fillers are worth considering.

How Does Chin Filler Work?

Chin fillers are dermal fillers, injected in the chin area to add volume and definition to the chin. This brings the appearance of the chin area in harmony with other facial features, giving a more balanced profile.

Are Chin Fillers Permanent?

Chin fillers are not permanent. How long they last depend upon the filler type, treatment area, and the individual’s body. As chin fillers are made up of HA, the body will slowly break it down. Since chin fillers are not permanent, they will not look out of place as you age, as the fillers will slowly dissolve, and you can get fillers in other areas where you think you may need them.

What is the Best Filler for the Chin?

There is no easy answer to this question as it depends on different factors of consideration, which certified cosmetic professionals are more capable of answering during personal consultations with clients.

However, generally, thicker fillers are recommended as they tend to work better in areas with bones like the chin area. That is why Hyaluronic acid is one of the largely preferred fillers for the chin area due to its thick consistency.

How Long Does the Filler Last?

Chin fillers can last between 18 to 24 months, but it usually depends on the individual.

How is Chin Filler Performed?

To start with the chin filler procedure, first, book an appointment at Shiro Aesthetic Clinic for a consultation with our doctor about the details of the treatment. This way, you can discuss the procedure, your concerns, and be informed of any possible side effects. At the same time, the aesthetic doctor will evaluate your chin area and discuss your medical history so both parties are well-informed and prepared.

The doctor will then inject the chin filler during your next clinic visit. The process involves cleaning the area and applying a numbing cream. After that, the chin filler is injected strategically into the soft tissues of the chin.

Benefits of Chin Fillers

Chin fillers provide the required projection to the area of the jaw where definition is frequently lost with age. Dermal fillers are one of the most popular options for chin augmentation for their range of advantages:

  • Non-Surgical: The most important benefit of chin fillers is they are non-surgical, which means there is minimal risk and downtime.
  • Reliable Results: Chin fillers offer realistic results, hence, whenever you feel like changing your look by getting the chin augmentation treatment, rest assured you will not have to undergo highly invasive surgery.
  • Address Ageing Concerns: Chin fillers add volume to the jaw area, giving the required projection and height to reverse signs of ageing. With age, the skin starts losing its strength and volume, which can be restored by adding chin fillers.
  • Better Appearance: A chin augmentation treatment can provide better facial symmetry by shaping your chin according to your individual profile and requirements.
