Redefining the look of your chin once involved surgery as your only option, but now there are quick, non-surgical treatments that can provide chin augmentation, chin profile balancing and chin contouring with no downtime.
Today’s non-surgical options can be used to:
Our Raleigh, NC team of aesthetic nurses, Meredith Harris, NP and Heather Shelton Roberts, RN, BSN are amongst the country’s top aesthetics specialists. Together, they have administered safe and effective procedures for thousands of patients.
Chin augmentation involves building up the chin and making it more prominent. Dermal fillers are often used to add instant volume to the chin, increasing its size or level of projection.
Non-invasive chin contouring is a procedure designed to correct various defects in the chin area, like sagging jowls or excess fat.
Chin profile balancing takes into consideration how the shape of the chin, nose and lips align to affect the overall profile of the face – with the aim of achieving a well-balanced facial profile.
A variety of options present non-surgical solutions for chin augmentation, contouring and balancing treatment options. Kybella, CoolSculpting Elite, and fillers like Volux and Voluma are some of the injectables that can be used most effectively. Our team will discuss your options with you to determine which methods of chin augmentation, balancing or contouring might work best for you.
New Life Aesthetics offers the full line of Juvederm fillers, including Volux and Voluma. Results from these two fillers are often seen for up to 2 years.
The latest injectable on the scene, Juvéderm Volux XC is the first and only hyaluronic acid (HA) filler with FDA approval for improving jawline definition, including the chin. Designed specifically for contouring the chin and jaw, Volux can even address sagging jowls, a recessed chin, or an ill-defined jaw.
KYBELLA is a prescription medicine used in adults to improve the appearance of moderate to severe fat beneath the chin, also referred to as a “double chin.”
CoolSculpting Elite is a non-invasive fat reduction treatment that uses advanced fat-freezing technology to reduce fat in the chin area and sculpt the chin line. Results are often seen in as little as a single treatment.
KYBELLA, CoolSculpting Elite and fillers like Volux and Voluma provide a nonsurgical, minimally invasive option for chin enhancement. Some of the benefits of these methods include:
At New Life Aesthetics, each patient receives a personalized treatment plan. One of our aesthetic nurses will spend time during your consultation to assess your needs and answer your questions prior to each treatment.
Before your treatment session, we will spend time reviewing any medications you’re taking, as well as answering any particular questions you may have.
Your appointment will last anywhere from 20 minutes to an hour – depending on the treatment method chosen. Anesthesia is generally not used during these procedures.
If you have a history of recent illness or vaccines, chronic immune dysfunction, or have had dental cleanings or work done by a dentist recently, immune reactions could present added risk to your procedure. Please make sure to report this history before undergoing treatment with soft tissue fillers.
The week before your treatment, avoid the following to minimize bruising during and after your procedure:
Check with your prescribing physician to ensure the safety of withdrawing from any of these medications or supplements.
You can return to your normal daily activities immediately after your treatment. It is best to avoid applying makeup or skincare products as well as rubbing or massaging the area treated until the next day.
You may experience a mild to moderate amount of aching sensation post injection, especially over boney areas. Temporary swelling can be expected, which dissipates in the days following injections. Bruising at the site of injection is a commonly reported side effect. Post-procedure relief options will be discussed with your provider.
With dermal fillers, most patients can fully appreciate the results almost immediately. With Volux and Voluma, a noticeable difference can be instantaneous. Profound improvement can be seen at four to six weeks, with results lasting anywhere from a year to a year and a half.
With KYBELLA for diminishing double chins, results can begin to be seen within six weeks and may continue to improve for up to six months.
It takes a minimum of one month for CoolSculpting Elite results to begin to appear, but full results may not be appreciated for up to four months after your procedure.
Maintenance treatments may be required to continue to benefit from the results of chin procedures.
