A great chin is one component to frame your features. It can balance and harmonize your appearance. Combined with a great jawline, the chin can make a big impact on your profile—and your selfie game.
As we age, the mandible (jawbone) gets smaller, and we begin to lose fat around the mouth and chin. These gradual changes can cause marionette lines, thinning and wrinkling around the lips, and jowls, all of which obscure the chin. Injectable fillers can be placed both around the mouth and along the chin to add volume to the face and create a more youthful appearance.enhancement, you may want to start with the chin.
A hyperactive mentalis muscle can cause the chin to appear less prominent than desired and create an unwanted dimpled look where we use BOTOX® injections to relax the mentalis muscle, which causes the chin to project more and create a more aesthetically pleasing profile. Fillers combined with BOTOX for nonsurgical chin augmentation is very popular among both men and women.
Both women and men can benefit from cosmetic injectable treatments to create a contoured jawline that frames the face. We understand the nuance needed to distinguish the results for male and female patients. Contouring a man’s jaw using fillers involves creating angles and straight lines to enhance the patient’s bone structure. An attractive woman’s face is defined by gentle curves that feminize the face.
Sagging along the jawline—referred to as jowling—is a dreaded hallmark of old age. We will use fillers to camouflage jowling by adding volume to the area between the jowl and chin to smooth the divot that makes the jowl so pronounced.
The angle and definition of the jaw plays an important role in facial harmony and attractiveness. Creating the balance between a well-defined jaw that isn’t overly prominent is something that we accomplish using neurotoxins (BOTOX® Cosmetic or Newtox®) for facial slimming.
When a jaw appears too prominent, it’s usually because of an overactive masseter muscle. This is the muscle used for chewing, biting, and clenching. Masseter reduction using BOTOX is ideal for patients who want facial slimming. Creating a slimmer jawline also results in enhancing the cheekbones and chin, giving them more prominence. This is especially important for women, who typically want high cheekbones and a clean jawline that softly curves to the point of the chin. Shaping the chin with filler also enhances the jaw angle, and is often done in combination with masseter reduction.
A well-defined jaw angle creates symmetry from the chin to frame the face. This filler treatment can shape, define, and enhance the lower facial contours. It also has the added benefit of decreasing the appearance of loose skin and the appearance of a double-chin when combined with chin augmentation. In men, this chiseling effect can be more dramatic. For women, depending on their desired facial shape, jaw angle contouring can range from soft to dramatic.
A sleek, youthful neck helps emphasize the definition of the jawline and highlights the chin. Many women and men notice the initial signs of aging in their necks, too, as lines develop and the skin begins to lose its elasticity. Fat also tends to begin accumulating below the chin as we age, although a double chin can be an inherited trait that can show up at any age.
Many patients can enhance the results of neck treatments with nonsurgical chin augmentation using cosmetic injectables. If you’re considering neck enhancement, you may want to start with the chin.
