How are Chin Fillers used?
A weak or recessed chin is a common Asian feature, often due to the bone structures of the face. A recessed chin can make your jawline look less defined and your lips or nose appear more protruding. To correct this, chin fillers are used to sharpen the chin and create a more defined chin shape. This is also known as the V-shaped face. If you have a wide and short face, chin fillers can also be used to lengthen and sharpen your facial profile to achieve a slimmer face shape.

How does a Chin Filler Procedure Work?
Our doctors will assess your facial structure and discuss your aesthetic goals before the treatment. During the initial assessment, you will also be briefed on the nature of the fillers, longevity of the fillers, their potential side effects, and what to expect during the procedure. Our doctors will also gauge your pain tolerance to ensure you do not feel any discomfort during treatment.
Before starting on the procedure, the injection sites will be cleaned and disinfected before a numbing cream is applied and left on to settle. After the numbing cream is washed off, our doctor will clean the area with an alcohol wipe before using a fine needle to inject the fillers into the chin. Next, our doctor will mould the filler to achieve the desired look. Finally, the injected areas will be cleaned and cold cream applied to reduce swelling and bruising.
The entire treatment may take 15 to 20 minutes.
What is the difference between Chin Fillers and Chin Surgery?
Before fillers were used, chin surgery was the only option to enhance the chin. Chin surgery remodels the chin by inserting implants or sawing the jaw bone for a sharper profile. Besides being expensive, chin surgery is also extremely risky with long downtime.
In comparison, chin fillers are minimally invasive and do not require surgery. The procedure can be done in a clinic in about 20 minutes and results are instantaneous. Downtime is minimal. Chin fillers also dissolve over time and get absorbed by the body, resulting in the chin reverting back to its original shape. Hence chin fillers work best for people who prefer a reversible option instead of a permanent chin augmentation.

FAQ On Chin Fillers
It depends on the type of dermal filler used. In general, most fillers last between 1 to 2 years.
If you prefer a more sculpted look and wish to top-up with more fillers, we would advise you to wait at least a week before scheduling another treatment. This is to allow the fillers to bind fully with your skin tissue and settle into your skin, which will allow us to assess the end result and advise you on the next step. For a natural looking appearance, less is always more.
Chin fillers are made up of hyaluronic acid, and it is a natural substance produced by our body. It is found largely in the skin, connective tissues and eyes. Hence hyaluronic acid is perfectly safe and does not cause any adverse reactions in the majority of people.
You may notice redness, swelling, mild bruising, and some transient needle marks right after the procedure. However, these side effects are temporary and will subside after a couple of hours.
If you have sensitive skin and are prone to bruising, avoid massaging the injection areas and stay away from alcohol for 48 hours.
Results are immediately visible after the procedure but subtle. Your overall appearance should not look radically altered but improved and aesthetically pleasing. However, chin fillers usually take a week to stabilize and set into the skin, hence you should also avoid activities that may displace the fillers.
You should wait at least 2 weeks for the fillers to settle in before getting a facial or other face treatments.
