Facial balancing and chin contouring have become popular treatments in the cosmetic world. Individuals, men and women alike, throughout the world turn to these treatments as an alternative to plastic surgery. They’re minimally invasive, provide excellent results, and are relatively long-lasting for non-surgical procedures.

What is facial balancing?

Everyone’s facial features are somewhat asymmetrical, and they have one side of the face that is narrower than the other. For some, the imbalance is more obvious than it is for others. Aesthetic facial balancing is a nonsurgical procedure that helps bring each side of the face into balance or balance specific facial features, such as the lips or cheeks.

Facial contouring can also help to balance the face as a whole. For example, is someone has a thin chin and wide cheekbone structure, the chin can be made fuller to bring it into more balance with the cheeks. The face in its entirety appears more balanced.

What is chin contouring?

Chin sculpting and contouring are similar to facial balancing explicitly focused on the chin. It’s common for chin contouring to be used to balance the chin or add volume to fill out the chin. Many get chin contouring to add volume to an aging chin or to add volume to the chin crease many individuals have. It can also help to reduce the signs of a cobblestone chin.

What products are used for facial balancing and chin contouring?

Some of the most popular fillers used for facial balancing and chin contouring, like Juvederm,  are made of hyaluronic acid (HA). HA is a substance that helps to give our skin its plumpness. As we age, HA decreases, which can lead to the appearance of wrinkles and hollow cheeks. Facial balancing can help to reduce the signs of this type of aging.

Voluma, a Juvederm filler, is the first and only dermal filler FDA-approved for check and chin contouring. Juvederm Volbella and Juvederm Ultra are used to fill in, add volume, and balance the lips. Vollure, another Juvederm filler, along with Ultra Plus and Ultra, is used to fill in moderate to severe lines and wrinkles, such as nasolabial folds.

Botox is also used to complement Juvederm for facial balancing and chin contouring treatments. Botox helps reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles of the forehead and the outside corners of the eyes. The outer corners of the lips and eyebrows can also be lifted with a Botox treatment. Injections of Botox can also help to smooth the chin for a chin contouring treatment.

How long do treatments take?

Facial balancing and chin contouring treatments require the injection of dermal fillers and Botox into the skin. The length of treatment time will depend on how many areas are treated and the amount of product required. On average, you can expect treatments to take 15 to 30 minutes, with an additional 15 to 20 minutes for numbing cream to take effect when used.

Are facial balancing and chin contouring safe and effective treatments?

Millions of dermal filler and Botox treatments have been conducted throughout the world. Both are FDA-approved to treat specific areas of the face. To ensure the satisfaction and quality of a facial balancing and chin contouring treatment, it’s essential to select a practice that is experienced in facial anatomy, dermal fillers, and Botox. Seek practices with positive reviews and before and after photos of facial balancing and chin contouring treatments, as well.

How long does a treatment last?

San Antonio Juvederm facial balancing treatment results can last anywhere from six months to two years. San Antonio Botox treatments last four months on average. As effects wear off, additional dermal filler and Botox injections are required to maintain results.

The dermal filler aspect of a facial balancing treatment provides immediate results. Botox, on the other hand, takes up to two weeks for full results to show. Dermal fillers also take time to settle, so the “final” result will be visible within approximately two weeks.

Will I need a follow-up treatment?

Once the results settle, you might need a dermal filler or Botox touch-up. Otherwise, follow-up appointments are only required when you feel you need additional Botox of dermal filler to maintain results.

How much does a San Antonio facial balancing or chin contouring treatment cost?

Facial balancing and chin contouring costs vary between practices and locations. It also varies based on the number of areas of the face treated and the type and amount of product used. Prices can range anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand.
