What is the Best Dermal Filler for Chin/jaw Augmentation?

I have been considering a chin/jaw augmentation and wanted to know what are the best/longest lasting fillers to use. Also can all the dermal fillers be applied thru a microdroplet technique(like silikon 1000), or are some fillers less precise and have to be applied a different way, thanks

Restylane Lyft Chin Filler

As we age, we naturally lose bone mass to the face. With this the underlying structure can alter the face making it appear concaved. The best way to sustain volume in the chin is to inject a Hyaluronic-Based filler to the area quarterly. Doing this will continuously make collagen.

Our preferred filler for this area is Restylane Lyft. It gives the patient natural volume, along with keeping a feminine appearance. Always discuss your desired outcome with your Board Certified Dermatologist or Expert Injector.

Chin / jaw augmentation

Hi there! 

There are many good products for chin / jawline augmentation. Personally, I use a volumising higher density product such as Juvederm Voluma. This also remains soft and contours beautifully as it sits so naturally under the skin. I use microcannulae for a lot of lower face work however the method of injection vs cannula is mostly dependant on practitioners preference. 

Hope this helps!

Best dermal filler for chin/jaw augmentation?

Thank you for sharing your excellent question.  I would advocate use of a thicker hyaluronic acid dermal filler such as Voluma to achieve your goals.  The thicker fillers allow for deeper placement, a more natural outcome, and more structure.  Hope this helps.

Augmentation of soft tissue defects around the jaw line can be easily accomplished with facial fillers like juvedern, restylane, perlane, fat, and radiesse. I am not a big fan of silicone because it can lead to long term problems such as granulomas. A more permanent result may be accomplished with a chin implant or even a sliding genioplasty.

Chin augmentation with a filler

First of all, there is no substitute for a chin implant. It is permenant and in the long run, less expensive. However if you wnated to start with a filler, I would use radiesse or sculptra to start with. Both are transient and will be gone by 12 to 18 months.

Fillers for chin or jaw augmentation

To some degree I would correct your terminology and state that you really need a subcutaneous filler rather than dermal filler. That is being technical. However, it means that you would benefit more from fillers that are intended for deeper injections. In my opinion Silikon is generally not ideal for this purpose. At this point in time I prefer Radiesse but I do use Restylane and sometimes fat for longterm correction

Fillers can be used to augment the Jaws but implants are longer lasting and more effective

If you desire for augmentation is more subtle than fillers could be a good option but fat injections could be a more longer lasting option for you to consider.  Even more longer lasting are jaw implants with a jaw augmentation procedure.
