Chin enhancement can add definition, contour and proportion to the face to give you the perfect side profile.
Profile Balancing is where a back-set chin is reharmonised in the correct ratio to the nose and lips, therefore, balancing out a side profile.
Dermal Filler can also be added to the chin to create a more defined and contoured look. Dermal Fillers in the chin area can help to correct a dimpled chin which is usually more common for women. Generally, for men, a dimpled chin is added for a more ‘masculine’ and chiselled look.
Many of our clients also tend to have the Jawline Contouring/Augmentation treatment alongside this one. These two treatments tend to complement each other, giving a more polished and fully finished contoured look.

Prior the treatment
Topical anesthetic will be applied for 20-30 minutes prior the treatment The procedure: After cleaning the area with antiseptic, Victoria will mark the treated area for a precise treatment. Dermal filler is injected using either a needle or a special blunt needle (cannula), which help prevent risks of puncture blood vessels that cause bruising, or risk of injecting into blood vessels, in small amounts and in precise locations into your skin so that there is total control over the procedure. Victoria will then massage the area for a smooth result. During the procedure, you are fully awake.
You should avoid touching or applying make up on the treated area for 6 hours in order to prevent infection. Specific post treatment instructions will be discussed with you by our Clinic Coordinator on the day of treatment
The results are immediate and last up to 12 months. As the results are relatively temporary, adjustments can be made as your face changes over time to ensure you always retain a natural look.
The most common dermal filler used for the lip area is Hyaluronic acid.
Hyaluronic acid is one of nature’s most versatile and fascinating substances. It is found throughout the body as well as in most other living organisms. It has many functions, for example, giving the skin elasticity, providing our skin with volume and also giving it a youthful appearance. Dermal fillers consist of sterile gels consisting of non-animal, cross-linked, hyaluronic acid (HA) and are created in a laboratory. They contain no human or animal DNA and have the best safety profile of all the fillers currently on the market as it is the only type of filler that is reversible.
There is very little to no down-time involved in the procedure. In fact, most patients return to their normal, daily activities right after their visit. There is always the risk of some slight swelling or bruising witdermal fillers, but these post treatment effects if experienced, will only last for a few days.
The result generally last average up to 12 months. A plan for regular follow-up treatments to maintain the initial result can be created for you. Our treatment provides a long-lasting but not permanent result leaving you the option of refining your treatment in
