What is Jawline & Chin Augmentation?
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?
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.
