Here at Skin Wellness MD, we like to think of our providers as artistic masters of the face, skilled in using injectables to mold, sculpt and promote a look of facial harmony that is unique to each one of our patients. Botox and Filler, which used to be used to treat unwanted wrinkles and folds in the face can now do so much more.
Let's talk about the chin.. specifically how we use Dermal Filler and Botox as a non-surgical approach to enhance facial appearance by adding volume to recessed or weak chins.
Botulinum toxins, like Botox Cosmetic and Dysport, temporarily mute nerve signals to minimize muscle movement and its unwanted effects on the skin — most famously wrinkles but also drooping, neckbands, and more. While its powers to stop wrinkles dead in its tracks is well known, when paired with Dermal Filler like Juvéderm Voluma XC it can help to reshape and restore more youthful facial contours, including the chin and jawline.
On appropriate candidates, the chin and jawline, tend to wear filler well. The gel bolsters ill-defined contours — whether inherited or acquired with age — without turning them cartoonish. Jowls are another hot button concern and while they are a normal side effect of the aging process due to bone loss in this area, they can be improved and corrected with the magic Botox and Voluma Filler combo!
