Hyaluronic Acid a Safe and Effective Option for Chin Augmentation


Clinical determines that hyaluronic acid is a safe and effective option for chin augmentation

The chin is an important component of facial attractiveness often overlooked in aesthetic analysis. Correction of a retruded chin or other chin deficiencies can improve the balance and harmony of the face. Chin augmentation may also benefit patients seeking overall facial improvement, as many are unaware that they have this condition.

What is Hyaluronic Acid?
Hyaluronic acid is a naturally occurring substance found in our bodies, particularly in the skin and connective tissues. It has the unique ability to attract and retain moisture, giving our skin a plump and hydrated look. In recent years, hyaluronic acid fillers have gained popularity in the field of cosmetic dermatology for their ability to enhance facial features and provide a youthful appearance.

Clinical Trial
The clinical trial aimed to evaluate the results of using a hyaluronic acid filler (Restylane Defyne) for chin augmentation and correction of chin retrusion. The researchers aimed to determine if this procedure could effectively enhance the chin's appearance while being safe for patients.

The clinical trial involved 140 patients, aged 22 years or older, with mild to moderate chin retrusion. They were divided into two groups. 107 patients received hyaluronic acid filer while 33 patients received no treatment.

The patients were evaluated on a validated chin retrusion scale (Galderma Chin Retrusion Scale), aesthetic improvement (Global Aesthetic Improvement Scale), subject-reported FACE-Q Satisfaction with Chin, and safety follow-up.

The results of the clinical trial were highly promising. The participants experienced a significant improvement in their chin projection and overall facial profile.

Safety Considerations
In addition to evaluating the effectiveness of the treatment, the researchers also assessed its safety. They monitored the participants closely for any adverse reactions or complications. The good news is that the procedure was found to be safe and well-tolerated by the participants. Only minor and temporary side effects were reported which resolved on their own within a short period.

In conclusion, the results of the clinical trial indicate that chin augmentation or correction of chin retrusion using a hyaluronic acid filler can be a safe and effective option. The clinical trial demonstrated that this procedure can significantly enhance chin projection and improve the facial profile. Furthermore, it was found to be well-tolerated by the participants, with only minimal and temporary side effects.
