Aging is inevitable and most people are so focused on restoring and rejuvenating the youthful appearance of their face that they often overlook other important areas such as the hands, chest, neck and even earlobes.

The Benefits of Dermal Filler for Cleft Chin

cleft chin

When talking about chin surgery, most people think about how to make their chin bigger through chin implants or fat injections but an equally significant thing to consider is how to tone down an overly prominent chin. Under this category, one common procedure for when it comes to chin enhancement is how to correct an excessive, deep chin cleft.

Studies show that genetics cause the appearance of chin dimples or cleft chin deformity. Other names of cleft chin are:

  • Butt chin
  • Chin cleft
  • Dimple chin

What Causes Cleft Chin?

Before discussing how to correct a chin dimple, let us first talk about what causes it in the first place.

Many people think that a cleft chin is associated to how the chin bone looks. Below is an image showing what the chin bone actually looks like.

Mandible

Having a prominent cleft chin is believed to have a deep indentation in the middle of the chin bone, but it turns out that the chin bone usually have that prominent groove. The truth is, the mentalis muscle, the muscle that appears around the jawbones, fails to close at the chin, hence leaving a gap.

People with cleft chin have either a very thick mentalis muscles that create a ‘valley’ between the muscles, and/or a wide space between mentalis muscles.

Is a Cleft Chin Attractive?

People have different views on the cleft chin. Some feel it improves a person’s appearance while others find it ugly. A cleft chin is technically regarded as a flaw but numerous popular celebrities who have this facial feature are considered attractive and good looking.

Unlike cheek dimples, which represents youthfulness and innocence, a chin dimple is regarded by most women as contentious as they think having such is more masculine than feminine.

How to Correct a Prominent Cleft Chin through Dermal Fillers

There are a number of ways to enhance the appearance of the deep cleft chin. One of the most popular and most straightforward ways is to use dermal fillers to fill in the chin dimple. This can be done quickly in the doctor’s clinic and only takes a few minutes.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse can be used. However, this method is not permanent. This requires repeated application and may last from 6 months to a year.

There are permanent treatment options available which includes changing the chin bone itself or addressing the separation of the chin muscles surgically. One important thing to consider is that it’s too complicated to completely alter a very prominent cleft chin through surgery alone. This is because it’s important to avoid changing the chin when working with the chin muscles. The goal is to have a natural looking and subtle chin result. Hence, surgeons are limited to how they can modify the chin muscles toward the midline.

The most dermal fillers can do for cleft chin is to make it less visible. It is impossible to eliminate chin dimple even with surgery. But there are other ways to hide It. Women can use makeup to make it less obvious. While men can gro beard to hide the gap between their chin.

‘Brotox’ Popularity: More Men Getting Wrinkle reduction treatment than Ever

In the last few years, there is a huge surge of men looking for minimally invasive facial rejuvenation. More than ever, men are seeking such rejuvenation in the form of Wrinkle reduction treatment and filler because they work really well in creating natural looking results with no downtime.

Would you try it? Popularly called as ‘Brotox’ or Wrinkle reduction treatment for Men, one of the reasons for this shift in attitude is that men are increasingly pressured to keep a youthful look to be able to vie in this highly competitive job market. In addition, a study revealed that men (including women) who have a youthful looks can generate more revenue compared to their older looking peers.

Besides economic concerns, having a youthful appearance can have social benefits for men. With the increasing rate of divorce in the UK, more men of all ages are dating and searching for a partner.

It’s also fair to say that men today have a more open attitude when it comes to cosmetic procedures. Men are now more aware of the procedures available to them.

Looking back 10 years ago, you would find a very low number of men willing to undergo cosmetic treatments to enhance their appearance; not because they didn’t like the idea of enhancing their looks, but because they felt embarrassed or didn’t want others to see them as vain.

But now, perceptions have changed and most people don’t think about cosmetic treatments solely with women.
Men are increasingly looking healthier and younger later in life. This could be another reason that may be having an influence on the number of men considering getting cosmetic procedures.

Does Wrinkle reduction treatment for Men Different from Women?

Wrinkle reduction Injections work by relaxing facial muscles, reducing the appearance of deep lines and wrinkles, especially frown lines and crow’s feet at the corner of the eyes. Since men have stronger facial muscles than women and have a tendency to get deeper frown line, they may require higher doses than women. But, while women looks best with wrinkles completely erased, men usually look better with wrinkles made less deep or softened.

If you decide to give Wrinkle reduction treatment a try, there are some things you should know:

  1. Talk to your doctor about the result you want to achieve
  2. To minimize the chance of bruising, avoid taking Advil, Aspirin, Ibuprofen and Motrin for up to 10 days.
  3. No alcoholic beverages.
  4. If you are taking prescribed blood thinners, tell your doctor beforehand.
