A cleft chin is a chin with a y-shaped dimple in the middle, usually a result of genetics. Some people consider a cleft chin a sign of beauty, but others feel self-conscious about the cleft. Whether you have a cleft chin depends on your genetic predisposition. When the two sides of the lower jaw don’t join completely before birth, you end up with a cleft chin. If you want to reduce the prominence of your cleft chin, we can offer personalized dermal fillers.
What is a Cleft Chin?
Dermal Fillers for Cleft Chin
Dermal fillers are the ideal non-surgical treatment for a cleft chin. A dermal filler is a cosmetic injection that adds volume underneath the skin in targeted locations. Most dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring gel that binds up to 1,000x its weight in water, making your skin look fuller and more voluminous. Injecting dermal fillers into the cleft chin allows us to fill the space between the two sides of the jawbone, making your chin look flat.
A cleft chin can be filled using numerous fillers, such as Restylane, Juvéderm, Versa, Radiesse, and Sculptra. Restylane, Juvéderm, and Versa are hyaluronic acid-based fillers that produce instant results. Meanwhile, Radiesse and Sculptra are fillers that stimulate natural collagen production to fill the gap in your jawbone. When injected into targeted areas, Sculptra and Radiesse encourage your body to produce collagen fibers, your body’s natural filler material. The results gradually improve over several weeks and months.
