CHIN FILLER
CHIN ENHANCEMENT WITH FILLER
FREE CONSULTATION

Chin enhancement with dermal filler is one of the MOST underrated treatments in aesthetic medicine. Chin fillers can be used to treat a variety of concerns including:

Chin Projection   |   Those with a weak retracted chin can project their perfect side profile with expertly placed dermal filler. Chin Shape   |   Create a pointier, more feminine V-shape to the lower face, or alternatively round an excessively pointy chin. Whatever shape you desire our expert injectors at Avissa Skin can help you achieve. Length of the Chin   |   Dermal filler injection can easily lengthen a shorter chin. Chin Symmetry   |  A quick easy fix by our expert injectors. Rewind Chin Aging   |   Aging results in a loss of facial bone structure, and underlying supporting tissue. Replacing lost support with dermal filler rewinds the aging of lower face. Masculine Chin Shape   |   Square off an overly pointy feminine chin to make the lower face more masculine. Smooth a Cleft Chin   |   Dermal filler can easily smooth a cleft in the chin.

Chin augmentation with dermal filler is an excellent alternative to invasive, expensive chin surgery. Non-Invasive, Quick Procedures, Immediate Results with Minimal Downtime, Last 6-12 months.

At Avissa Skin, we only ever use hyaluronic acid filler, because it’s a naturally occurring sugar that creates a smooth, born-with-it look without the side effects associated with permanent fillers. That it gets naturally metabolized by the body overtime is a good thing – even if it’s annoying having to get the area re-treated. We also have a product called hyaluronidase which can dissolve hyaluronic acid immediately if there is a complication, or if you don’t like the result.

DERMAL FILLER FAQs

How Long Will It Take Me To See Results After Dermal Filler Injections? After getting dermal filler injections, you will be able to immediately see some results, however, it will take about 48 hours to see the full effect. The results will typically last from 6-18 months depending on the area being treated and body’s metabolic rate. After this period of time, you will need to receive fillers again to maintain your rejuvenated appearance. If you opt to stop getting injections at any time, your appearance will just revert to its original state.

How Long Will The Results From Dermal Fillers Last?
Dermal fillers fade very slowly and gradually, so for the vast majority of patients, results should last between 6 and 18 months. After approximately 6 to 18 months, the effects of the dermal filler gradually weaken, until your skin returns to its natural state. The specific amount of time dermal fillers last varies depending on the patient’s skin, the treatment area, one’s metabolic rate, and the type of product used.

As treatment with dermal fillers is temporary, they require touch-up injections for maintenance, and eventually repeat injections. At Avissa Skin, our experienced practitioners will determine the ideal time interval for your follow-up treatments, and develop the optimal injectable regimen to suit your needs. Alternatively, if you decide not to maintain your new appearance, the results will gradually disappear over time.

How Long Is The Recovery From Dermal Filler Injections?
After receiving your dermal injections, you might experience some mild redness, swelling, tenderness, bruising, or itching. These effects should clear up in less than 7 days (or 14 days for lips). Redness can be concealed using foundation or concealer. In general, most patients experience little or no downtime – which means you can return to work and continue with your usual daily activities.

How Much Do Dermal Filler Injections Cost?
The cost of dermal filler injections depends primarily on the amount of dermal filler injected, which in turn depends on the amount of product you require to achieve a significant result. At your consultation at Avissa Skin, your unique facial features will be assessed, your concerns will be taken into account, and a treatment plan will be developed. At this point, you will be told the exact amount of filler you will require.

Are Dermal Filler Injections Painful?
Most patients only experience mild discomfort. As the needles used for dermal fillers are very fine, the amount of pain experienced by patients is minimal and the procedure does not require anesthesia. It should also be noted that many of the dermal filler products available today contain Lidocaine, a local anesthetic, to minimize your discomfort. Topical numbing creams can be used to further minimize discomfort when injecting sensitive areas.

Are Dermal Fillers Reversible?
Fortunately, there is the option of completely reversing the results you obtain from Hyaluronic-Acid based fillers if you are not happy with the results. A solution called Hyaluronidase is simply injected into the treatment site which effectively dissolves the filler within approximately 24 hours.

At What Age Should I Start Getting Dermal Filler Injections?
The age at which you start using dermal fillers depends entirely on the type of issue you’d like to address. While severe wrinkles and folds typically become evident well into middle age, fine lines appear much earlier. Moreover, there are a number of issues which dermal fillers are very effective at addressing, that are not always related to aging, such as a sunken appearance, thin lips, and wide jawbone. In general, however, dermal filler products should not be used in individuals under 18 years of age.

Are Dermal Filler Injections Safe?
Dermal fillers are approved by the FDA, and have an excellent safety track record. Additionally, the dermal fillers used at Avissa Skin in Ann Arbor are all Hyaluronic Acid-based, which is a substance that naturally occurs in our bodies, and has been used for over 20 years for arthritis treatment, wound repair, and eye surgery.

Possible Complications
Dermal fillers are very similar in composition to the Hyaluronic Acid that naturally exists in your body, as such it is very unlikely to induce an allergic reaction. To reduce the risk of complications and ensure your safety, your practitioner will review your medical history, including allergies and medications, at your initial consultation to determine whether you are an appropriate candidate for fillers.

The most common complications associated with fillers include receiving results other than you had intended, tiny lumps or irregularities under the skin, and prolonged redness. After receiving dermal filler injections, patients prone to cold sores may develop an outbreak. Those with HSV-1 should therefore be treated with a course of antiviral medication prior to the procedure. More serious complications such as infection and tissue necrosis are exceedingly rare.

WHAT TO EXPECT

Preparing for facial filler
Truth be told, there isn’t a whole lot of necessary preparation for facial filler. However, it’s key to note that some bruising (at the injection site) and possible swelling may occur. Therefore, it is wise to schedule your appointment at least two weeks before an important event.

To help prevent bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications, including pain relievers and supplements like fish oil for a week prior to your appointment. (Also, smokers have an increased likelihood of bruising.) You may wish to take the holistic supplement Arnica Montana several days leading up to your procedure, as this helps to minimize the chances of bruising, as well.

Here’s what you can expect during your dermal filler appointment:

Assessing your condition
During your consultation, our cosmetic injector specialist will carefully evaluate your skin condition and facial appearance. This will include your skin tone, as well as the features of your face that would look better augmented. Such areas will be marked appropriately to serve as guide during the actual treatment later on.

During your treatment
During your treatment, you will be made comfortable, and a topical numbing cream will be applied. The numbing cream will be removed after an appropriate amount of time, and your aesthetic nurse injector will cleanse and prepare your skin for treatment. You will feel a pinch upon initial injection and will feel some pressure as the product is delivered. Many of the dermal filler products have a numbing agent in them, so you will continue to feel less of the treatment as it goes on. Most patients find the treatment very tolerable. Your aesthetic nurse injector may manipulate the product as needed.

Going through recovery
Once the necessary filler has been administered, your skin is cleansed again to remove any markings. While you may feel some discomfort, swelling, or tenderness in the area, ice packs and pain medications usually do the trick.

Dermal fillers are a no downtime procedure. After treatment, you’ll be able to leave our offices immediately. You’ll be able to drive yourself home. Many patients actually head right back to work. Redness, tenderness, and swelling can occur, but typically are minor and fade over the course of a few days. Makeup can be applied to cover any redness you may experience. It is important that you do not push or press on the treated areas. It is important that you do not disturb the areas where the product has been placed.

Note that the dermal filler treatments are dosed in syringes, and each area of the face differs in how much product is needed to achieve full correction. No two people will have the same dosing. It is more helpful to think of dermal fillers in terms of results, versus actual syringes used. Volumize treatments do take time to reach efficacy/settle in, typically 3 – 4 weeks. Typical duration of dermal fillers is anywhere from 6-18 months, depending on the product used. While it would seem logical to request only the longest lasting dermal filler product, not all dermal fillers are suited for the same areas. Your aesthetic nurse injector will determine which product will give you your best outcome.

CONTRAINDICATIONS

You may be a good candidate for lip injections if you are looking for a noninvasive treatment which may give additional volume to your lips. On the other hand, it is important to inform us of any conditions which may prevent you from being a good candidate. Some of these may include but are not limited to pregnancy, breastfeeding, your medical history on the treatment area such as previous injury or scarring, or any other medical conditions which may affect your eligibility. If you have any concerns, feel free to discuss them with us during your consultation. Your aesthetic nurse injector will thoroughly review your health history and contraindications with you prior to treatment.

PRE TREATMENT CARE

Schedule your dermal filler appointment at least 2 weeks prior to a special event which you may be attending, such as a wedding or a vacation. Results from the dermal filler injections will take approximately 2-14 days to appear and will soften over time.

You should NOT schedule any invasive procedures for 2 weeks before or after treatment. These can include but are not limited to dental work, including dental cleaning, any lesion excisions/biopsies, surgery of any kind, internal device placement, tattoos or permanent makeup.

To help prevent bruising, avoid blood-thinning medications, including pain relievers and supplements like fish oil for a week prior to your appointment. (Also, smokers have an increased likelihood of bruising.) You may wish to take the holistic supplement Arnica Montana several days leading up to your procedure, as this helps to minimize the chances of bruising, as well.

POST TREATMENT CARE

Cold compresses or ice packs may be used after the treatment to reduce swelling and decrease soreness. AVOID excessive touching or massaging the treated areas for 6 hours after the injections. AVOID alcohol, caffeine, Niacin supplements, high-sodium foods, high sugar foods, refined carbohydrates, spicy food and smoking for 24-28 hours after your treatment. AVOID submerging head under water for a full 24 hours after your treatment; this includes pools, beaches, hot tubs, etc. In the first 24 hours following treatment, limit exposure to sunlight or UV lamps. The best thing to do is to avoid makeup. But if you must apply it, wait till the bleeding has completely stopped and the swelling has subsided.
