Jawline & Chin Augmentation

What is Jawline & Chin Augmentation?

High density dermal filler is injected at the mandibular angle (angle of the jaw), mandible ( jawbone) and the chin. This creates a sharp and contoured looking jawline. Injecting at the angle of jaw creates a sharp right angle. As well as creating a more striking appearance. We use jawline filler to improve the appearance of jowls.

How long does it last?

Once injected, high density hyaluronic acid can last up to 18 months. With each repetitive treatment results will last longer. Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring molecule found in the body, hence your body will gradually metabolise and break down the filler. Hot climates, sunbeds & fast metabolisms speed up the breakdown of filler. Filler lasts longer in areas with a poorer blood supply (cheekbone, noses & undereye). Lip filler breaks down quicker. This is because the lips are very vascular and have a strong blood supply, therefore will increase the metabolism in that area. Also we are constantly moving are lips to talk, eat etc this also speeds up the breakdown.

Does it hurt?

We predominantly use a cannula technique for this procedure. This involves making a tiny pilot hole with a needle into the skin. This is then removed. A blunt end, small plastic tube (cannula) is then inserted into that pilot needle hole and fed underneath the skin. The beauty of this technique is that it is safe and we can harmlessly push the cannula in several direction over the jaw+chin and deposit the filler. Given the blunt end, it dramatically reduces the risk of bruising and damage to tissue structures. The pain level is minimised as most of the work is being done underneath the skin, where there are minimal pain receptors. Traditionally we used 5-6 needle injections along the jaw and chin, this meant increased chance of bruising and increased pain as the skin would have needed to be broken 5-6 times. The pilot hole can be numbed with local anaesthetic, again making the procedure virtually pain free.

How much filler do I need?

You have to appreciate that the jawline & chin are large areas. Therefore a larger quantity of filler is required to create noticeable results. We recommend a minimum of 3MLs to start off with. At your consultation a tailored treatment programme will be provided for you.

Won’t it make my face look more full/fat?

Absolutely not. When injected and sculpted properly it does the opposite. It creates structure and sharp contours. Your face will have more definition and appear slimmer. We place filler sub-periosteal ( just above the bone ) when you build on your existing bony architecture, you can create sharper features.

What are the side effects?

If your unlucky you may have some temporary bruising. At your consultation we will go through the full side effect profile. However using a safe filler with cannula technique dramatically reduces the risk of bruising and other side effects.

Dear Dermis team

The purpose of my message is to express my sincere gratitude for the impecceable service I have received.

This is for the easy and speedy communication via what's up, as well as the experience encountered in your clinic including the charming colleague who checked me in.

My appreciation is by no means an understatement and you all have made me feel extremely valued.

I wish I would have known about you before visiting another clinic as I am now able to reflect on the comparison of my experience.

Dr Sef, thank you for making me feel so comfortable, something I sadly did not experience with the other clinic.

I believe, that you were honest and transparent and demonstrated skills I infortunatley did not witness before.

The most important point I am trying to make is, that considering that the procedure is very intimate, you made feel at ease.

The result looks great and I am looking forward seeing you in two weeks time.

Thank you again.

I just had my final (6th) session for laser hair removal treatment with Mel. I must say they just got a new machine and it is pain free. I would definitely recommend Dermis Clinic Mel is really friendly I will be booking another treatment later in the year. I’m really happy with the results 😄 Thank you so much

I have been coming to Dermis Clinic for years for multiple laser treatments and have found it great quality and Mel is so lovely. Due to this I decided to have my Botox done by Dr Sef rather than my usual clinic. I felt at ease straight away and despite being too early to see my results (takes 10-14 days) I can already tell by previous experience that Dr Sef’s treatment will bring great results. Thanks!

Had my lips done for the first time ever here. They swelled up a lot as would be expected but already tonight the swelling has nearly all gone and I am so in love with how they look! The entire process was explained to me and I was made to feel comfortable and at ease. Would recommend to anyone thinking about getting a procedure done. :)

I started my laser hair removal treatment at the end of December. Only 2 treatments in and there is barely any hair, I am stunned by how good the treatment is. Amirah is absolutely lovely, she’s a great listener and has made me feel extremely comfortable each time I’ve been. The clinic itself is super cute and most importantly clean! Would 100% recommend!

Had my CORE training with Dr Sef last week. Had such an amazing day, was very professional, and got to learn so much. Loved that it was practical and I now feel very confident. Since the training he has been supportive. Thank you.
