SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors offers the finest services for Chin Fillers in Melbourne. Our experienced cosmetic doctors offer personalised treatments to clients in our Melbourne clinical studios.
When a person starts to age, the chin moves backward and the skull rotates – leaving the lower face with reduced structural support. Chin shape can be enhanced using dermal fillers with no surgeries. Unlike in the past, a patient can consider having chin fillers before jumping into the decision of having a chin surgery. Chin enhancement is a popular treatment with the use of filler which is being done along with facial slimming to soften the jaw area and to make the chin elongated. It can also help the chin more defined and prominent.
The chin is an important feature of the lower part of the face. Once the area has been enhanced, it sharpens the jawline, a decent amount of fat and excess skin in the neck area can be reduced as well as balancing the face profile. Chin enhancements can either be via chin injections with dermal fillers or chin implants to enhance the shape of the chin. This treatment can be done depending on the natural appearance of the chin and it varies from patient to patient.
We use Swiss dermal fillers here in SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors. We use products resulting in slight swelling and bruising which make the downtime very minimal. Chin fillers can last up to 18 months. Some swelling and bruising should subside in 3 days maximum and should go away after a week. Most chin enhancement procedures have to be topped up as they are temporary. which is also a benefit since face changes as we age, so we can redo the chin to be aligned with the rest of the face as part of enhancing an anti-aging procedure.
Dermal filler can be inserted through injections in the chin area to add volume and have it restored in a non-surgical way. There are smoother and finer ones, and also thicker ones – which the latter lasts longer.
An assessment and consultation has to be done prior to performing the procedure. The cosmetic doctor will discuss with the patient their natural structure and how it can be enhanced. The patient can also discuss the desired result with the cosmetic doctor as well as ask questions prior to proceeding with the treatment.

Dermal chin filler technique
Either a Cannula or needle can be used to perform chin filler treatment. Cannula reduces the risk of perforating a blood vessel which causes and more complications.
A needle can pass through easily since the chin area has more fibers and muscles; but Cannula can be difficult to pass through due to having a blunt tip. In most cases, Cannula and needle are combined to achieve great results. It is ideal to use Cannula for treating the sides of the chin, and needles at the center area.
Ideally, the front edge of your chin should be in line with the bridge of your nose. If a patient’s profile is not within the said line, dermal fillers and chin filler enhancement can align the edge of your chin to your nose bridge.
Another thing to consider as an important part of enhancing the chin is blending it with the jawline. The chin has to look well with the jawline since that is the most forward part of it. Fats can be accumulated along with the jowls and can make the chin ‘disconnect’ from it once the jowls drop below the jawline. To blend the chin and straighten the jawline, we can use dermal fillers in between the jowl and the chin. Your chin will be blended into the jawline once the area has filled with dermal injections.
The face and all surrounding areas are thoroughly cleaned, ice may be applied briefly to the area before the treatment begins. Then using a very fine needle, the filler injectable is administered using a series of small injections across the target area until the desired result is achieved. Gauze will typically be used during this process after injections with light pressure applied.
Sometimes the use of a cannula can be preferential, depending on various factors that your practitioner will discuss with you.
Most people find the application of fillers to be quite tolerable and low in pain, having an experienced injector will assist with this as with experience comes the ability to be as efficient as possible in providing these treatments. To have the best experience with any cosmetic procedure, it’s always advisable to avoid discount shopping and go with experience and qualifications as a priority.
If you are concerned about the pain, you can request a numbing cream to be applied, though this is usually not needed necessary. Many fillers also include a local anesthetic that begins to numb the treatment area after the first injection rapidly, and when focusing on the chin, this should be quite efficient at reducing mild discomfort working on a reasonably centralised area.
While a ubiquitous question, it’s not one that has a precise answer, however, depending on the specific filler products used your practitioner will be able to estimate this quite accurately based on their experience. The reason this varies is that patients will metabolise and absorb chin fillers at different rates so that lasting periods will vary unpredictably to a small degree between patients. So be sure to discuss this with your practitioner during your consultation after you have reviewed your desired outcome, especially if lasting time is a priority for you. Sometimes specific products can be chosen to better suit your preferences in this regard.
Depending on the filler used the lasting time will typically vary somewhere between 6-18 months. As previously mentioned, your Cosmetic Doctor should be able to give you a reasonably accurate estimate on what to expect and when to consider topping up if you intend to do so, based on the products used and their experience with them.
Generally, the main things to expect are some minor redness and swelling, this will reduce over the next couple of days usually, and any sharpness to the appearance of the chin will soften and begin to take on a more natural look. If anything of concern starts to occur then seek advice, but in most cases, the downtime is very low if anything provided you take some considerations to let the area heal.
To reduce the chances of complications, you should avoid applying makeup on the chin or surrounding areas for a minimum of four hours. Avoid strenuous exercise for a couple of days, as well as avoiding excessive sun exposure. Applying an icepack to the area can help with any minor discomfort and swelling after the treatment.
While most swelling from chin fillers will typically dissipate over a 2-3 day period, you may retain some residual swelling for as long as 2-4 weeks after the treatment. If you find any hard areas, in the first few days these should soften as the filler settles more if not speak to your practitioner for advice. If before the four-week mark you experience some amount of asymmetry don’t panic as this is often just the result of uneven swelling or bruising as it dissipates faster in some areas than others. If you are considering having further filler treatments soon after to adjust the chin further, it is advisable to wait at least four weeks before reviewing this option with your Cosmetic Doctor.
While the use of dermal fillers is considered relatively low risk, they still have possible side effects, and these should always be taken into consideration. During your consultation your Cosmetic Doctor will discuss the risks involved and any that may be further increased by any specific medications you take or other factors, so always listen carefully to make an informed decision before proceeding.
Some possible side effects to consider include:
This varies depending on the required amount of filler, and the specific type of filler used. Fillers are typically sold in 1ml syringes, due to the risk of cross-contamination we do not split syringes as we take that risk seriously, however, at our discretion for regular clients, we will sometimes store leftover filler for top-ups in our sterile on-site storage facilities for use by only that patient in a future visit.
Patients who most likely to get benefits of having filler in the chin are those with small ones. We can improve a small chin while reducing an overwhelmed chin will be a totally different process.
Both men and women can get this treatment to improve the physical appearance of the jaw.
The goal is to achieve a less rounded, bottom-sided triangular peak of the bottom part of the face. Filler for chin will make a patient look younger, reason for chin filler treatment to be associated with other facial enhancement procedures.
