What Are Chin Lines?
There are various type of Chin Lines. Some appear as tiny dimples all over the chin skin and are caused by repetitive movement of the underlying muscle with speaking or chewing. Others may appear as a prominent horizontal crease between your lip and your chin and are due to a loss of volume as part of the natural ageing process. Not only are chin lines and creases unflattering, they can lead to an upside down smile or saggy mouth. This occurs because there is a lack of support from below, which can add years to your appearance.
How Are Chin Lines Treated?
Fortunately, Chin Lines are relatively easy to fix. To address Chin Lines and deliver a natural and refreshed face, Dr. Jodie may suggest using a combination of Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants and Dermal Filler treatments.
Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants can be injected into the chin muscle to reduce movement and smooth out your chin skin. This will eliminate the dimpling effect or 'orange peel' effect and minimise the appearance of your fine lines and wrinkles. It can also soften any deep lines that form within your chin crease.
Dermal Filler injections can be used to refill your chin crease, as well as reshape your chin itself. Not only will this leave you with better chin structure and skin quality, it will also improve the support to your mouth from below. For more information on Chin Fillers, click here. Sometimes Dr. Jodie will ‘line chase’ any heavily ingrained chin lines with Dermal Filler to smooth your chin even more.
What Is Involved In Chin Line Treatments With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?
After Dr. Jodie thoroughly cleans the treatment area, she will apply ice to numb your chin prior to injecting to ensure you are comfortable throughout. She will then use a fine needle to administer the Anti Wrinkle injections in a few places at the base of your chin. The procedure is relatively quick, pain free and requires no recovery time.
Dermal Fillers injections into the chin tend to be more involved. To revolumise your chin crease, Dr. Jodie will often use a micro-cannula approach (a fine-blunt ended needle that minimises bruising by pushing blood vessels aside), although sometimes she will prefer a direct needle approach to improve your overall chin volume and projection. She will also use a fine needle to directly treat and soften the presence of any ingrained lines. Prior to this she will apply numbing cream or local anaesthetic for your comfort. This procedure takes slightly longer than Anti Wrinkle injections but has minimal recovery time in most cases. You may experience some swelling or bruising so be sure to time your treatments with your social calendar.
