Am I A Candidate for JUVEDERM Voluma of the Chin?
If you have any of the following concerns about your chin or jawline, you may be a candidate for non-surgical chin augmentation:
Recessed or Under Projected Chin: Often referred to as having “no chin”, a recessed chin can make a person’s jawline appear weak. It can be due to genetic reasons, a deep overbite, or certain medical conditions.
Aging Chin: The mandible (jawbone) gets smaller as we age and lose fat around the mouth and chin. This can cause marionette lines, wrinkling around the lips, and jowls, which directly affect the chin.
Cleft Chin: Also known as a “butt chin”, a cleft chin is a prominent dimple or crease in the front of the chin. It is often caused by a separation of the chin muscles, creating a deep central groove.
