Frequently Asked Questions
How Many Syringes Do You Need For Chin Filler?
The number of syringes required for chin filler largely depends on your starting anatomy and the results you want. For patients wanting to treat a cleft chin or dimple, then one syringe will likely suffice. However, for patients who have a recessed chin, multiple syringes may be necessary to get the desired results. Ultimately, the best way to estimate the number of filler syringes needed is to attend a consultation with Sarasota Surgical Arts.
Can You Dissolve Chin Filler?
If hyaluronic acid fillers such as Restylane or Juvederm are used then your provider can dissolve it using an agent known as hyaluronidase. This compound dissolves hyaluronic acid and consists of an injection into the treatment area. Therefore, not only does this make the procedure safer, but it also allows patients to dissolve it whenever they like.
Fillers such as Radiesse and Sculptra are not easily dissolvable. If going with one of these semi-permanent options, it is important to understand that they are not dissolvable and what that means for treatment and results. Typically, these fillers are only recommended to people who need long lasting, dramatic results or those experienced with dermal fillers already.
Is It Painful?
There is a small amount of pain and discomfort associated with the initial injections. Your provider will control this with topical numbing cream. Additionally, most hyaluronic acid fillers have lidocaine in their formula which eases the feeling of the injections as well. Patients generally do well with chin filler injections in Sarasota and some find the numbing cream unnecessary. Though it is always offered and available.
How Long Does Chin Filler Last?
Chin filler tends to last around six months on average. However, depending on your choice of filler, it can last well over a year. Semi-permanent fillers can last two years or more. You will need to get chin filler refreshed around once or twice a year on average to maintain results.
Is There Anything I Need To Do Before Treatment?
While not necessary for many injection procedures, if you have time before your appointment, your provider may give some advice to prepare for your chin filler. First, avoid alcohol, smoking, and any type of blood thinning medications or supplements for about a week before your injections. If you take a prescription blood thinner, you may not need to cease its use.
Plan on coming to your appointment without makeup as this will make the process smoother and lower the risk of infection or irritation. Also, if you use retinol, acidic skincare products, or exfoliants, stop using them in the days leading up to your appointment.
What Does Chin Filler Cost?
The cost of chin filler depends on the number of syringes of filler and the type of filler used. Therefore, it is difficult to quantify the exact cost before consultation and/or treatment. You can find our per syringe pricing for our offered fillers on our price list.
