My Aesthetics Journey with 1Aesthetics Medical and Surgery - Chin Fillers

Hello everyone! I can't believe it's the new year already! Time sure flies...

Speaking of time, remember how in my previous post, I've mentioned that I'll be undergoing facial fillers with 1 Aesthetics Medical and Surgery? You can read it all up here in case you missed it Click Here .

I've managed to squeeze in some time before my Taiwan and Korea trips to schedule an appointment with Doctor Wan for a session of chin fillers.




I actually don't have much problems with my chin from the front view, however from the sides, my chin does seem to not compliment my side profile. Thus facial fillers is the best option if you're looking for a subtle facial enhancement!


What can chin fillers do for you?
– help if you've a weak and receding chin
– help if you've thin or receding jawline
– help if you've lost facial contours due to aging
– help if you've facial asymmetry
– help if you've deformities resulting from injury or congenital conditions


Clinical Profile Pictures - Before

The procedure was relatively fast, cleansing of the face was done first to ensure that the face is clean and sterile to prevent any risks of infection. After which numbing cream was set on my face for a period of time to ensure that the injection phase would not induce any sort of pain for me. 

AND WE'RE READY TO GO AHEAD WITH THE FILLERS INJECTION!! :D

A cold compress was applied to my chin first to numb the area before the injection was being. The whole procedure didn't hurt, but was rather uncomfortable as it felt like something was pushing the insides of my chin. Other than that, everything was bearable with little to no bleeding!

After injecting, Dr Wan started molding my chin for me!

And we're done! Here are the side by side before and after photos taken at the clinic! 


As you can see, my chin is more protruding now in a natural way! 


Overall my experience has been pleasant. For me, I encountered more swelling than usual as I was sick the day we scheduled for this! However, the swelling will subside within a week so do keep that in mind and do not worry too much!

What To Do, & What To Avoid, Before Your Fillers Treatment

In order to reduce the amount of bruising and/or swelling from the injection sites, please follow the instructions below. ​
  • Avoid blood thinning over-the-counter medications such as Aspirin, Motrin, Ibuprofen, and Aleve for 1 week prior. Please consult your physician if you are taking Aspirin for medical reasons! 
  • Avoid supplements including St. Johns Wort, ginko biloba, primrose oil, garlic, ginseng, and Vitamin E for 1 week
  • Avoid topical products such as Tretinoin (Retin-A), Retinols, Retinoids, Glycolic Acid, or any "Anti-Aging" products for 3 days prior
  • Avoid waxing, bleaching, tweezing, or hair removal cream on the area to be treated for 3 days prior
  • Do not drink alcoholic beverages for 24 hours prior to treatment
  • If you have previously suffered from facial cold sores, there is a risk that the needle punctures could contribute to another eruption of cold sores. Please let Dr. Janowski know if you are prone to cold sores.
  • Do not use dermal fillers if you are pregnant or breastfeeding, are allergic to any ingredients, or suffer from neurological disorders. Please inform us if you have any questions about this prior to your treatment

Within 6 to 10 Hours of Treatment

  • Avoid drinking alcohol or partaking in strenuous exercise, as it may result in additional bruising. 
  • Until the swelling and redness have resolved, avoid intense heat in the treated area(s). This includes sunbathing, tanning, saunas, hot tubs, or hot wax. Also avoid extreme cold such as skiing or other winter sports. 
  • To help alleviate bruising, we recommend the topical application of Arnica - a natural ointment commonly used to reduce bruising. You can find this in the natural foods section of your grocery store, or at local pharmacies. We will also provide you with some in our office. 
  • Minimize movement of the treated area(s). However, if there is a visible bump, you can massage the area. Depending on the areas treated and the product used, you may feel "firmness". These areas will soften and settle with time (usually 1-2 weeks)
  • Sunscreen and makeup can be applied, and the area can be gently washed with a gentle cleanser. Dr. Janowski recommends using a sensitive cleanser such as the Sanitas product line or Cetaphil to avoid additional skin irritation. 

How Long Will Dermal Fillers Last?

It depends! It is however, not permanent. Shorter term fillers made of hyaluronic acid, like Juvederm and Restylane, will last anywhere from 6-18 months depending on the areas treated and your bodies metabolism.Long lasting fillers, like Sculptra or Bellafill, actually stimulate your own collagen to "grow" in as the filler. The results of these treatments have been reported to last as long as 3 to 5 years.
I'll be visiting Dr Wan and 1 Aesthetics Medical and Surgery before the Chinese new year for a follow up session and i'm quite excited for it!
