Chin Enhancement

Treatment Options

At Cosmos Clinic we use  Dermal fillers and Muscle Relaxant Injections for chin enhancement:

  • Dermal fillers: Are most commonly used to shape the chin. They are injected, and give the appearance of a more prominent chin in people with a small or protracted chin. At Cosmos Clinic, we use the thickest natural Dermal Filler on the market ensuring the best lifting effect

  • Muscle Relaxant Injections: Used to soften the chin and improve the chin contouring. As we age the chin muscle (the mentalis) becomes stronger and pulls the chin up, making the chin point forward rather than south. Injecting a muscle relaxant into the chin muscle restores the chin to its original position.


Chin Enhancement treatment prices vary depending on your overall situation, expectations and treatment option selected.

As a guide:

  • Prices for Dermal Fillers start from $600 - $1650
  • Initial consultation is between $150 - $220


  • What is Chin enhancement?
    • Chin Enhancement is changing the contour the chin by making it more prominent or providing greater definition. It is common to use Dermal Fillers or Muscle Relaxant Injections to create the augmentation.

      As we age the chin pulls up and gives an orange dimpling effect. The use of Dermal Fillers and Muscle Relaxant Injections can restore the chin to its original position;,creating a more triangular and youthful appearance to the chin.

  • Who is a suitable candidate for Chin Enhancement and Contouring?
    • People with a small or protracted chin make good candidates for Dermal Fillers in the chin, and are particularly common in Asian patients. Chin Enhancement helps to create a more triangular and youthful appearance to lower the face. This can be combined with Jaw Line Contouring and Cheek Augmentation to recreate the youthful triangle of beauty that is seen in models.

      Muscle Relaxant Injections and Dermal Fillers are also useful for patients with a chin that appears like an orange peel when they push their lower lip up and out. Again, this creates a more triangular and youthful appearance to the lower face and improves the chin contouring.

  • The Procedure. What does it involve?
    • An ice pack or topical anaesthetic is applied to the area being treated. Injections are then used to deliver the muscle relaxant or/and Dermal Filler into the chin area.

  • Will I experience any pain?
    • There is minimal discomfort during the procedure.

  • What can I expect after the procedure?
    • The risk of bruising is low. The swelling is virtually non-existent with the muscle relaxant, while with the Dermal Fillers, the swelling can last 2 to 3 days.

  • Results. What and when can I expect them?
    • Results when using dermal fillers can be seen immediately. Results using muscle relaxant injections can be seen between 10 – 21 days.

      Dermal Fillers injected into the chin can last up to 2 years. Today with the longevity of the Dermal Fillers, you do not need to run the risk of infection and scar tissue with chin implants.  Muscle Relaxant Injections will last 3 –  4 months in most cases, and can vary from patient to patient.

  • Are there any risks of complications?
    • Dermal Fillers and Muscle Relaxant Injections are very safe. The risk of swelling and bruising in this area is very low.

  • Why not use implants for Chin Enhancement?
    • Chin implants run the risk of infections, scar tissue and are difficult to reverse if you do not like the final result. Chin Dermal Fillers tend to be favoured over chin implants because of the reversibility and the very low risk of infection.
