The chin is an area of the face that is often overlooked in a cosmetic consultation. However, an improperly balanced chin can prevent the facial symmetry many patients seek. Additionally, chin augmentation can be utilized to enhance the appearance of the chin and lower part of the face by bringing more chin projection and definition.
What is Juvéderm® Voluma™
While Juvéderm® Voluma™ has been approved for use in the cheeks since 2013, it is the first and only filler of its kind to receive FDA approval for chin augmentation. It is a hyaluronic acid-based injectable filler. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance that binds water to the body’s cells. It is soft, smooth and natural feeling when injected into the skin.
Who is a Candidate?
In clinical trials of Juvéderm® Voluma™ for chin augmentation it was used to successfully treated all genders, ages (over 21), and ethnicities. The results of the filler can last up to 2 years in the chin. Since this is a non-surgical treatment, the procedure requires only topical anesthesia and takes less than twenty minutes.
A healthy patient with realistic expectations and a wish for more definition or structure is a great candidate. Chin augmentation can also bring the patient a more defined jawline, tightened look to the neck, and a better overall chin profile. It works beautifully in conjunction with a rhinoplasty, enlarging the chin area which will make the nose appear smaller. In some patients with large noses on profile, adding volume to the chin can make the nose appear smaller by comparison. This can also diminish the appearance of the jowls.
