Enhance Your Chin: 3 Treatments

Chin Rejuvenation

“Put your best chin forward” may sound like a cliché but it’s more relevant than you may think. Other than your nose, your chin is the most prominent part of your face. This often-overlooked feature can convey a lot about your appearance, your state of health and much more.

The dreaded double chin is perhaps the most well-know condition that most people want to improve. But there are many other ways your chin can reveal your age and reversing an aging or unflattering chin may require a combined approach. Below are three minimally invasive treatments we recommend to get your chin in tip top shape:

Belkyra

When assessing the lower face as part of a rejuvenation plan, we normally check to see if a patient has some degree of submental fullness. In layman’s terms – do they have a double chin. The double chin can occur due to weight gain, age or it can be genetic. Quite often, submental fullness is accompanied by sagging skin (usually in older patients).

The best non-surgical way to reduce, or hopefully eliminate, the double chin is with fat dissolving injections like Belkyra. This safe and effective substance is made with deoxycholic acid, a naturally occurring bile salt that’s very powerful as breaking down adipose tissue.

When strategically injected under the chin, Belkyra can literally dissolve fat cells, giving the lower face a much slimmer and contoured appearance. Normally 2-3 sessions (spaced 12-16 weeks apart) are recommended for best results.

Venus Freeze RF Skin Tightening

In some cases, dissolving fat under the chin can leave behind some loose skin, or it can make existing skin laxity even more noticeable. If that’s the case, a series of  Venus Freeze Radiofrequency skin tightening treatments can help firm up sagging tissue after you have finished your Belkyra treatments.

Radiofrequency is the gold standard for skin tightening. It works by gently heating up the skin’s dermal layers where collagen and elastin fibers reside. RF heat denatures the collagen, sending your body into repair mode to fix and regenerate the damage, stimulating new collagen in the process. Science has shown time and time again that RF helps to tighten skin, giving it a smoother and more youthful appearance.

Dermal Filler for Chin Augmentation

The final step to round out your chin rejuvenation journey is dermal filler. Let’s say you’ve taken care of the double chin and excess skin but would like some additional contour in the lower face. That’s where dermal filler really shines.

We now have high density fillers such as Juvéderm VOLUX which can be used to mimic bone, giving substantial structure and stability to areas such as the chin and jawline. Below are all the benefits of chin filler:

  • Improve strength and definition
  • Improve overall facial symmetry
  • Increase chin projection
  • Give the lower face proportion
  • Contour the chin and jawline
  • Fill in cleft chin
