Most people believe surgery is the only way to alter face shape, whether they are unhappy with their face’s round or boxy appearance, fillers can prove as an effective treatment option. The jawline creates a lot of the facial structure and gives a harmonious and balanced appearance. The chin can be strengthened using the non-surgical chin augmentation approach such as filler injections. Besides strengthening a weak chin, chin augmentations can restore balance by creating the illusion of a smaller nose. Although the chin can be augmented either surgically or non-surgically, surgery has become a thing of the past because of several drawbacks because of the possibility of a moving implant or a permanent one that the patient isn’t happy with.
Dr. Rokhsar, has found years of success in achieving patient’s cosmetic goals with the use of Radiesse to create a brand new chin in minutes without surgery. Fillers, such as Radiesse, are being used to strengthen and contour the chin to the patient’s face structure. Injectable dermal fillers have evolved in cosmetic dermatology over the years, first as collagen, then hyaluronic acid, and now the long lasting Radiesse. What sets Radiesse apart from other injectable fillers is its durability, longevity and malleability to accurately contour the chin to the patient’s desire.
Radiesse is made up of very small, smooth Calcium hydroxylapatite (CaHA) microspheres that are suspended in a water-based gel that remain soft and malleable after injection. Calcium hydroxylapatite is a naturally occurring mineral that makes up 50 percent of the bones in the human body as well as the enamel covering the teeth. Because Radiesse is a natural mineral found in the body, it will not cause any allergic reactions and is completely biodegradable.
Results typically last six months to a year, but have been shown to last a year or more in some patients. Because Radiesse is not permanent, it can be useful for ambivalent patients who would like to test out a chin augmentation without having to commit to a permanent solution. For patients who are satisfied with their chin augmentation but would like more permanent results without surgery, ArteFill is a four to five year treatment solution.
To those who are looking for a larger lasting non surgical option, ArteFill is another type of injectable dermal filler similar to Radiesse except its unique precision-filtered microspheres and enhanced collagen are not absorbed by the body. It can also be used to smooth wrinkles and provide facial structure in hollow places such as sunken in cheeks. ArteFill’s soft, supportive foundation creates a longer lasting chin augmentation that can take 15 to 30 minutes with no downtime. With these safe and effective non-surgical options made available, chin augmentations can easily correct a weak chin to proportion it to a person’s natural bone structure.
Dr. Cameron Rokhsar, M.D., has been performing chin augmentations with Radiesse for years and has found success in meeting patients’ cosmetic goals because he can follow the natural contours of the person’s own chin. This allows Dr. Rokhsar to precisely inject small amounts of Radiesse in order to build the chin and balance the facial profile, which ultimately provides the patients with results as subtle or dramatic as they want.
