Most commonly, dermal fillers are used to augment the chin. Dermal fillers are injected into the chin to help give the appearance of a more prominent chin in people with a small or a protracted chin. At Lightsculpt we use only hyaluronic acid dermal fillers for a chin augmentation because if you do no like the appearance of the final result it can be easily reversed with a product called hyalase.
Chin implants run the risk of infections and scar tissue and are difficult to reverse if you do not like the final result. Chin dermal fillers tend to be more favoured over chin implants because of the reversibility and the very low risk of infection with dermal fillers.
Muscle relaxant injections are also used to help soften the chin and improve the chin contouring. As we age the chin muscle (the mentalis) gets stronger and pulls the chin up making the chin point forward rather than south. Injecting a muscle relaxant into the chin muscle helps restore the chin to its original position.
