Juvederm for chin

How can Juvederm improve the appearance of the chin?

Juvederm can help improve the appearance of the chin in a number of ways. Juvederm, which is a hyaluronic acid-basic dermal filler, can help fight signs of aging by filling in lines, wrinkles, and creases in the chin area, as well as add volume to the chin. Wrinkles and lines in the lower part of the face are a common sign of aging, as skin loses elasticity and starts to sag. Some of these lines, such as the marionette lines that form at the corners of the mouth and go down the chin, can become very prominent. While aging is a large contributor to these lines, weight loss, sun exposure, and lifestyle choices such as smoking, and genetics can all affect the severity of these lines. Additionally, Juvederm call be used to add volume in order to sculpt the chin—whether volume loss is due to age or weight loss, or if patients are simply displeased with the natural appearance of their chin.


What is chin augmentation?

Chin augmentation is a procedure that gives patients a more pronounced chin. Traditionally, chin augmentation procedures were surgical, and involved inserting a chin implant to provide patients with a more prominent chin to improve the appearance of the jawline. Recently, non-surgical chin augmentation has become increasingly popular. This procedure involves using dermal fillers, often fillers made of hyaluronic acid, to add volume and size to the chin. Sometimes these procedures involve bringing the chin into better balance with the lips, noses, and forehead, or to diminish the appearance of jowls—the loose skin that hangs off the chin or jaw area.


How long does Juvederm last in the chin?

The longevity of results will vary by patient. There are a number of different factors that will affect the results of treatment, including the age and lifestyle of the patients, as well as the area of injection, the amount of filler required, and the injection technique used by the medical practitioner. However, on average, Juvederm can last up to a year before the hyaluronic acid dissolves. Patients can receive touch-ups as needed once the effects begin to diminish.


Benefits of Juvederm for chin augmentation

Many patients are seeing the benefits to receiving non-surgical chin augmentation procedures over the traditional surgical options. A benefit of receiving treatment with Juvederm is that the procedure is much more customizable. With chin implants, doctors were limited by the physical implants they had available, which were often one-size-fits-all. With dermal fillers, doctors can assess the patient’s appearance and choose where to inject the filler gel in the chin in a way that the results will be more balanced with the rest of the patient’s facial features. This procedure is also popular due to the fact that results are immediately visible, which also means that patients can have the effects reversed right away using hyaluronidase if they do not like what they see. Juvederm is also safer and provides subtler, more natural-looking results compared to chin implant surgery, and requires minimal downtime.
