Nonsurgical Chin Augmentation to Improve Profile
Since the jawline and chin are so important to symmetry, the wrong size or shape could be detrimental to the face. A nonsurgical chin augmentation using Radiesse is a safe and nearly painless procedure to improve facial symmetry and counteract sagging. This patient was not entirely sure of a permanent change and opted for a nonsurgical procedure. He has a weak chin and sagging jowls.
Dermal fillers promote a healthier, more youthful facial appearance. Dermal fillers counteract sagging, loss of volume and wrinkles due to aging. Aging naturally reduces the amount of hyaluronic acid in tissue, which results in loss of hydration. Injections along the chin and jawline in this patient augmented tissue and increased volume. Radiesse was also injected into the center of the chin to alleviate chin folds. Nonsurgical chin augmentation using Radiesse enhanced this patient’s chin to add symmetry and definition.
RADIESSE FOR STRUCTURAL CHIN SUPPORT
Radiesse injections are used for nonsurgical enhancements. Radiesse is a gel suspension filler with calcium hydroxyapatite microspheres. This dermal filler is used more than other dermal fillers for nonsurgical chin augmentations due to its ability to provide structural support. This scaffolding reshapes the chin and jawline. Radiesse also promotes collagen synthesis, which supports new collagen fibers to create contours and add volume.
Radiesse has a thicker consistency than Restylane or Juvéderm, which are both are hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers. Radiesse injections in the chin can last from about 18 months up to three years for some patients. Injections cost about $950 per enhancement.
