RADIESSE® for Chin Enhancement
Many people are interested in enhancing the shape of their chin, but do not wish to undergo an invasive surgical chin implant procedure. With RADIESSE® it is possible to enhance and contour your chin without surgery. RADIESSE® is a remarkable dermal filler that is made of calcium-based microspheres, which are made from a standard substance that is also found in human bone, suspended in a water-based gel. RADIESSE® can be used to sculpt certain areas of your face and to increase volume in general. RADIESSE® actually works with your body’s natural process to create firmer skin, and a more contoured appearance. After RADIESSE® is injected into your skin, it starts a process called collagenesis in the treatment area. Collagenesis is the stimulation of the body to produce more collagen, thus providing increased volume, firmness, and contouring around the area where it has been injected.
Dr. Paul Jarrod Frank offers RADIESSE® injections to his patients who wish to enhance the shape and contour of their chins without undergoing a surgical procedure. By injecting RADIESSE® into the chin area, the length, width, and/or projection of the chin can be altered. After examining your chin and overall facial structure, Dr. Frank will be able to recommend the changes that will be most appropriate. The procedure typically takes less than 15 minutes, and the results can last up to 1 year. Using RADIESSE® for chin enhancements is also an extremely safe approach. Typically no anesthesia is required, but at most, only a local anesthetic would be needed. There is no physical chin implant, thus the risk of infection is eliminated, and the likelihood of infection in this area of the face while using RADIESSE® is basically non-existent. After the RADIESSE® injection, you may experience mild swelling and occasionally mild bruising. Most people are comfortable returning to work the day after their procedure, and are able to cover up any blemishes with light makeup.
RADIESSE® is injected in precise locations across the chin, as determined by your doctor. Since the location can be tailored for each individual, RADIESSE® offers the most natural and custom results for your chin enhancement. When undergoing a chin implant, for example, you will be fitted with a predetermined chin implant, one which is not specifically customized for your face. RADIESSE® allows Dr. Frank, who is an extremely skilled and artistic surgeon, to sculpt your chin in exactly the way that will appear most harmonious and beautiful with the rest of your face. It is important to find a doctor who is skilled at using RADIESSE® to enhance the appearance of the chin, as an unskilled or inexperienced doctor may produce unnatural looking results.
RADIESSE® is truly a remarkable product with a vast number of cosmetic uses, but its use in chin enhancement is one of the most exciting. Now patients can achieve better facial balance without undergoing a painful surgery. Before considering a chin implant surgery, consult with Dr. Frank to see if RADIESSE® injections would be a more suitable approach for you. His skill in using RADIESSE® to sculpt and contour his patient’s faces is unmatched, and you are sure to be satisfied with the results.
