What is a Weak/Receding Chin?

A weak chin, also known as a receding chin, is a condition where your chin appears less defined (the tip of the chin is not projected forward enough in relation to other parts of the face). In many cases, the chin looks like it’s ‘sloping’ into the neck. 

Since the chin takes up around a third of the facial area, it significantly impacts a person’s overall facial aesthetic, and a weak chin can make the entire face look imbalanced. As a result, this makes many people self-conscious and wary of how they are perceived during social interactions. On the other hand, a well-defined chin is highly desirable and considered to be one of the standards of youth and beauty.

Is a Weak Chin Genetic?

There’s evidence that links a weak chin profile or receding chin to genetics. This means some people are born with a receding chin. Other than being hereditary, a weak chin profile can be attributed to other factors. These include:

Ageing - results in the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres in the skin, causing a decrease in the definition of the chin and jaw.

Overbite - can also cause the lower jaw to be positioned too far back and lead to a weak chin over time.

Weak/Receding Chin Frequently Asked Questions

How Do You Treat a Weak Chin?

Traditionally, for chin enhancement, patients had to look at surgical options. But the use of non-invasive Dermal Fillers now gives excellent results at a much lower risk and cost. The latter is our preferred treatment option for a weak or receding chin. Our dermal fillers are made of hyaluronic acid (a naturally occurring substance in the body responsible for keeping the skin’s hydrated and plump). Popularly known as Chin Filler, this treatment offers a quick and painless way to adding shape, definition and smoothness to the chin and jawline area. The entire treatment takes only a few minutes and can be carried out over a lunch break.

What are the Benefits of Treatment Option for a Weak Chin?

Results will be more-or-less instant, with the final effect being seen within 14 days as the filler settles and integrates with the skin’s tissue. The filler will produce a subtle but significant impact on your chin profile. In fact, it will be difficult for others to pinpoint where you had some work done—great news for those who want an enhanced but natural look. The results typically last for around 12 months but potentially up to two years. If, for whatever reason, you regret the enhancement, it will fade away within a year or can be immediately reversed with Hyaluronidase.

How Do I Know If I Need Treatment for My Weak Chin?

Chin fillers are suitable for men and women over 18 years who want to change their chin’s shape without surgery. People seek enhancement of their chin and overall lower face for several reasons. Some have a receding chin and want to achieve the appearance of a strong jawline. Others are concerned about the effects of ageing on their facial features, while others want to get rid of their cleft chin (chin dimple or bum chin). Our chin filler treatment offers the perfect alternative to risky options such as chin implant surgery while taking into account your specific concern. Correcting a weak chin can also improve your jawline definition, bringing about a more masculine appearance in men and a softer, more balanced lower face in women.
