This article will continue to expand on the growing library of information on a long-time favourite aesthetic treatment at Clinic Dr Dray London, the humble yet powerful Chin Filler. Our last article detailed precisely why people get chin filler and how they work. This article will dive into another question we frequently encounter regarding chin filler: “How long does chin filler last?” So read on to learn about the personal and treatment factors that can influence the lifespan of your beautiful new chin.
How Long Does Chin Filler Last?
Chin fillers are quick, easy and non-surgical ways to improve facial harmony, augment a weak chin, and strengthen the jawline. But a crucial factor to consider when contemplating this procedure is its longevity. So, how long does chin filler last? We won’t keep you in suspense any longer. The straightforward answer is: chin fillers last between 6 to 18 months.
Now that we have answered that question, we can already predict your next question: why is there such a wide range of time? The answer is that various personal and treatment factors can influence how long your chin fillers last, including the type of filler used, your body’s metabolism, and your skincare regimen. Let’s unpack these factors.
Chin filler longevity factors
Type of Chin Filler Used
At Clinic Dr Dray London, we use hyaluronic acid-based fillers for chin augmentation. Hyaluronic acid filler is safe, efficient, and known for its durability. However, the lifespan of Hyaluronic acid can vary, typically lasting between 6 to 12 months.
Your Body’s Metabolism
Just as your metabolism plays a role in virtually every function of your body, so does your metabolism affect how long your chin filler lasts. A faster metabolism means you break down the filler quicker, shortening its lifespan. On the other hand, a slower metabolism means your filler may last much longer, perhaps closer to the 18-month mark. Everybody is unique, so it is impossible to predict exactly how your metabolism will respond to chin filler.
Your Skincare Regimen
Investing in a complete skincare routine can prolong the effects of chin filler. Proper skin hydration, regular use of sunscreen, and a balanced diet can help maintain the health of your skin and the integrity of the fillers.
Your Age and Lifestyle
Age and lifestyle can also influence how long chin fillers last. Younger skin has more collagen, which can help preserve the filler within the tissues for longer.
Regarding lifestyle factors, there are two things to be aware of that can impact how long your chin filler lasts: strenuous exercise and excessive sunlight. Strenuous exercise and too much sun can increase your metabolism and cause your body to break down the filler quicker. So if you’re seeking to maximise the lifespan of your chin filler, then approach these lifestyle activities with some caution.
What to Expect Over Time
As with any injectable, the beauty of chin filler is that you get an instant result with minimal downtime. So as soon as you leave the Clinic Dr Dray London, you’ll enjoy a beautiful, symmetrical chin that balances your facial features and boosts your jawline. But what can you expect as time goes on?
- You may experience mild swelling or bruising at the injection site in the first few days after treatment. This is normal and should reduce quickly.
- Over the following weeks, the filler will settle into your chin and reveal the final enhanced appearance.
- Over time, as your body slowly metabolises the filler, you may notice a gradual decrease in the filler’s effects. It’s essential to schedule a follow-up visit with your doctor to assess your progress and discuss potential touch-ups. At Clinic Dr Dray London, we offer comprehensive aftercare, ensuring our clients achieve their desired results and maintain them for as long as possible.
Chin filler offers a non-surgical, minimally invasive solution to enhance the chin and sharpen the jawline.
