RESHAPING A WEAK CHIN USING FILLERS
Dermal fillers are some of the most versatile products in the tweakment market. While they started out pretty humbly, just filling in deep lines in the face, nowadays they can be used to completely reshape the face. You’ll often hear me talking about how important it is to only use dermal filler products that have been properly tested, and Perfectha is one such product.
On this Tweak of the Week, I’m talking to Dr Pradnya Apte about how a ‘weak’ chin – one that’s set back and looks as if it’s receding – can be brought forward and made to look ‘stronger’ through the use of fillers. At the same time, she will be adding definition to the jawline. Dr Pradnya originally trained as a dentist and before she moved into facial aesthetics and, while you might think it a bit odd for a dentist to be doing this sort of treatment, actually, their detailed training and knowledge of the facial anatomy and structures puts them at a huge advantage when they transfer their attention to medical aesthetic procedures
Our patient this week, Effie, had always wanted a stronger chin and jawline, but until today had always thought it would require massive surgery involving completely breaking and resetting the entire jaw. Join me to see what fillers can do for people like Effie who don’t want to undergo surgery.
