What is Chin Contour?
As we age, our skin envelope begins to thin out. Collagen and fat begin to shrink, giving us a hollow or sunken appearance.
Fillers are synthetic or autologous agents used to help restore the volume for the face and body.
ChinLContour is an easy, simple, flexible, and long lasting non-surgical chin contouring injection treatment for the receding chin.
Chin Contour produces instant filling effect and gradual collagen stimulation overtime. Best of all, Chin Contour is easier than surgery, restores both bone and soft tissue volume, works faster than fat grafting, lasts much longer(almost ten to thirty times longer than traditional hyaluronic acid acid, with a duration ranging from 5 to 15 years and possibly longer, and feels softer than rigid filler like ArteFill.
Customized to the needs of both bone and soft tissue, this technique customizes an individually composition of FDA approved variable weight hyaluronic acid, antioxidant, and Silikon-1000. The duration of traditional hyaluronic acid is significantly enhanced with the addition of variable volume mixture of low and high molecular weight hyaluronic acid, the anti-degradation effect of antioxidant, and the prolonged collagen stimulation effect of Silikon-1000. The effect is a soft, natural feeling of volume contouring.
Subsequently, the filler product is injected via special instrumentation, in incremental layers, and in multiple sessions, to build up progressively the volume filling effect.
As the immune slowly breaks down the hyaluronic acid, the Silikon 1000 begins to stimulate collagen. The produced collagen and its associated Silikon 1000 are much more slowly metabolized, thereby significantly prolong the duration of the filler.
The variable composition of Chin Contour allows flexible treatment of both bone and soft tissue for nasolabial folds, folds around the mouth and chin, and receding chin.
How does this treatment differ from the other options?
Easier than surgery
More complete improvement for both bone and soft tissue than implant
Faster than fat grafting
Much longer lasting than hyaluronic acid
Softer feeling, longer lasting, more cost effective than BellaFill, requiring no pre-testing
What Conditions May Be Treated?
Folds around the mouth
Whom is the treatment for?
1. Patients with realistic expectation
2. Patients in good healthy conditions
3. Adequate fat for harvesting in case of fat grafting
Whom is the treatment not for?
1. Patients with unrealistic expectation
2. Patients with low blood sugar, dehydration, acute disease, autoimmune disorder, blood disorder, cancer, or on bleeding thinning medications.
How is the treatment done?
Following local anesthesia, fillers are injected slowly and retrograde in low pressure settings to slowly, incrementally, and gradually restore the lost volume of the targeted skin sites.
Generally, several sessions are required.
Results are more precise, longer lasting, and more complete when injections are done in stages. Specific areas of collagen or fat loss are the addressed with serial sessions monthly injections. The treatments are sized to your dimensions and customized to your specific facial needs.
All unused prepared or mixed medicine must be packaged and labeled with the recipient patient’s identification.
The treatment takes about half hour in an outpatient clinic setting.
Local anesthesia is used.
What results may be expected?
1. Chin contouring
2. Smoothening of folds
3. Immediate improvement due to instant filling
4. Prolonged improvement due to gradual collagen stimulation
When will one see the results?
The results are seen within a few days and also gradually within few weeks.
How long do the results last?
Results last years, ranging from 5 to 15 years and possibly longer.
How to maintain or enhance my results?
Additional maintenance is required.
Other alternatives may be used to enhance results.
Further treatment may be recommended to further results.
What is the recovery like?
Recovery lasts few days.
Mild redness, moderate pinkness, soreness, and mild bruising are expected.
Recovery is much easier than surgery.
Prescription pain medications are generally not necessary.
Most people return to work and activities in a few days.
Cost of Treatments
Cost of treatment options ranges from three to five digits. An in-person consultation with your specialist physician will help to determine the best suitable solution to your own individual needs.
