Does the treatment hurt? Plus Icon

Discomfort is to be expected as most of the treatments for weak chin are injectables, however as your comfort is a priority, numbing agents and local aesthetic is available upon request to make your experience as enjoyable as possible.

Are weak chin treatments expensive? Plus Icon

Compared to chin surgery, the non-invasive and non-surgical treatments available are much more affordable. A typical chin implant surgery can cost around £2,000 to £4,000, whereas at sk:n we offer dermal fillers from £350, thread lifts and Sculptra™ from £545.

Prevention

Although weak chin is often a familial trait, its appearance can be reduced through certain preventative treatments and measures. It is thought that by losing excess facial fat, it may help improve the appearance of the chin area and promote a firmer outline.

Facial massages, rolling devices and jaw and chin exercises are also another way of preventing a weak chin, but their efficacy is often disputed.

It is generally thought that the repetitive movement of the jaw may help tighten, and strengthen the mouth muscles, helping create the illusion of a stronger jawline. However, frequent strain of the jaw may cause more harm than good and lead to injury.

Rejuvenating professional skin treatments that work to tighten and rejuvenate the skin, such as skin peels and HydraFacials, have proven benefits in reducing the appearance of loose, sagging skin. They can also help generate a healthy glow and enhance overall skin health which in turn, improves confidence.

At sk:n we offer a range of treatments to reduce a small, recessed or weak chin. Click to see best procedures for weak chin.
