One of the quickest ways to give a more youthful appearance to the lower face is chin contouring. As we age, we lose bone mass. This affects our facial bones too, causing our chin to retract backwards which gives way to a weaker jawline and contributes to chin dimpling.
We can use dermal fillers to reshape and contour the chin. This gives a more youthful appearance by making the jawline feminine and smoother. In turn, this can also improve marionette lines and under-chin fullness.
The first patient below had age-related bone loss and chin retraction. We used one syringe of Juvederm’s® longest lasting filler, Voluma® to refill and contour her chin. The second patient had a genetic predisposition to a weaker chin. She had the ultrasound skin tightening treatment Ulthera® done on her lower face to tighten the skin. After, two syringes of Voluma were injected to bring her chin forward and create a more feminine profile.
