Chin and Jawline Enhancement
The chin is key to an attractive face. Ironically, the ideal chin doesn’t attract any attention to itself at all. The chin can make a big impact on your profile. Its role in the attractiveness of your face is to bring balance to your features and profile. A strong chin and streamlined lower face are important elements of attractiveness, adding definition, creating symmetry, and bringing balance to facial features. An attractive and ideal female face is an oval shape, where the top of the face gradually tapers into a sharp chin. A male face typically has a square jaw line, which gives the face a box like shape.
Some people have an overactive muscle in their chin. Increased tension in this muscle causes irregularities to appear in the skin’s surface, such as lines and small dimples, like a golf ball or orange peel skin (dimpled texture of an orange peel). Fortunately, the muscle can easily be treated with BOTOX, filler and thread. Your chin’s natural smooth appearance and firmness can be restored.
INDICATIONS: Dimpled chin or cleft chin | Short chin | Marionette lines
BOTOX FOR CHIN
A hyperactive mentalis muscle can cause the chin to appear less prominent than desired and create an unwanted dimpled look. The goal of botox injections in a dimpled chin is to relax the mentalis muscle and reduce the appearance of wrinkling in the chin area. Dr. Reema Arora uses BOTOX® injections to relax the mentalis muscle, which causes the chin to project more and create a more aesthetically pleasing profile view. Fillers combined with BOTOX for nonsurgical chin augmentation is very popular among both men and women.
Botox is a procedure in which Botox ® is injected into the area around the Chin to help smooth the surrounding skin. Botox® is a nonsurgical procedure.
It takes two to three weeks to see the full effect, and results last for approximately six months.
Q. Who is a good candidate for Botox treatments for the chin?
A. The ideal candidate for a chin Botox is one who has a dimpled chin.
Q. How long do results last?

Side effects like bruising are rare, In addition, there is no downtime, and normal daily activities can be resumed immediately.
FILLERS FOR CHIN
As we age, the mandible (jawbone) gets smaller, and we begin to lose fat around the mouth and chin. These gradual changes can cause marionette lines, thinning and wrinkling around the lips, and jowls, all of which obscure the chin. Injectable fillers can be placed both around the mouth and along the chin to add volume to the face and create a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can greatly improve your appearance without surgery or downtime. This treatment is better than the chin implant.
This filler treatment can shape, define, and enhance the lower facial contours. It also has the added benefit of decreasing the appearance of loose skin and the appearance of a double-chin when combined with chin augmentation.
A chin treatment with dermal fillers can be achieved by injecting the fillers into the area below cheeks to help restore the marionette line. Dermal fillers restore the volume of the skin in this area, giving a more youthful appearance
Reduces the marionette lines, improvement in smaller chin.
Q. Who is a good candidate for Filler treatments for the chin?
A. Chin enhancement may be right for you if you’ve always felt you had a smaller chin and marionette lines.
Q. How long do results last?
A. Results can last up to 12 months.
As with any treatment, facial fillers have the potential for side effects. However, the side effects are typically mild and resolve within the first few hours or days following treatment. Common side effects can include:
• Lumps or bumps

THREAD LIFT FOR DOUBLE CHIN
Sagging skin under the chin occurs as we age and our skin loses elasticity. Thread lifting uses a series of microfilaments positioned at specific areas of the face to lift the chin line, lift sagging skin over the cheeks, reduce nasolabial and marionette lines, define the jaw line, thus reducing the roundness of the face and ultimately the double chin. We use small threads for the under chin area, elimination of double chin and formation of a clear oval face.
First, local anaesthesia will be used to numb the areas that are going to be treated, and then a small instrument (a thin cannula or needle) will be used to insert the threads below the skin. This entire process usually takes just 30 to 45 minutes, and the patient is free to return to work afterward.
Threads reduce nasolabial and marionette lines and give immediate results. As the fibres dissolve, they too spur the body to create new collagens.
Q. How Does a thread lift treatment feel?
A. You may experience some mild discomfort during your Thread Lift, however a local anaesthetic will be used to minimise any pain caused and to prevent any soreness.
Q. How long will the results last?
A. The treatment can last up to 18 months. Factors such as exposure to the sun and lifestyle choices may affect how long results last. An ongoing effective daily skincare regime is crucial to help promote and achieve optimum results.
Q. Are thread lifts safe?
A. Thread lifts are completely safe when performed by a specially trained doctor.
Q. When will I see results?
A. Your skin will look immediately firmer, with lines and wrinkles appearing softer. Gradual results will also be seen over time as the polylactic acid gets to work for a natural look. Collagen production will be stimulated and lost volume will be restored.
Q. Can a thread lift be combined with other treatments?
A. Yes it can. Popular treatments such as dermal fillers and skin peels can sometimes be taken at the same time. Upon your consultation you will be able to discuss your specific concern and treatment needs.
You may experience some light bruising, puckering of the skin, dimples from the entry points of the threads, swelling or redness after the treatment; however these side effects are completely normal and will subside on their own within a few days. In the event of pain, take a pain reliever as advised by Dr. Reema Arora.
