Injectables (such as Botox and Dermal fillers) are a non-surgical, minimally invasive anti-ageing facial treatments for shaping chin and jawline.
A younger face looks more like a V (or triangle of youth). It consists of high cheekbones, fuller cheeks, and a sharp, well-defined jawline. As we age, this V becomes inverted because of changes in our skin, soft tissues, and the bony structure (sometimes referred to as the "Pyramid of age"). The face becomes more oblong, cheeks flatten out, and jowls become more visible.
There is a descent of the chin and loss of the well-defined angle between the jawline and the neck. The neck muscles separate and lose tone, creating vertical bands. Fat is deposited below the chin area, leading to blunting of the neck and chin angles.
Reshaping and restoring of the inverted V around the chin and jawline can be achieved using Botox and dermal fillers. Botox can be used to reduce the appearance of a cobbled, bump chin and a smoother, more even and elongated appearance of the chin can be achieved.
A sagging jawline, especially jowls, can be treated using dermal fillers to replace the volume loss A smoother, more contoured jawline can also be created using Botox to treat the neck muscles and the grinding muscles (masseter) which contribute to a sagging jawline by pulling the face down.
Minor Bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible. Patients typically start seeing results within 5 days, with full results after 2 weeks.
The lip reshaping or enhancement is done using dermal fillers to achieve younger, smoother and fuller lips.
The assessment of shape, size and symmetry is done to identify the problem areas.
After applying a topical anaesthetic, injections with dermal filler are undertaken in a series of small aliquots in and around the lips. The treatment usually takes between 15 to 30 minutes.
There is normally little to no pain beyond the feeling of pressure and a slight pinch. There is no downtime either and you can return to your normal activities straight after the treatment. Minor bruising, swelling, or tenderness is possible. Patients typically start seeing results within 5 days, with full results after 2 weeks.
Skin texture and signs of ageing can be improved by using an innovative injectable called Volite.
Volite is injected into the middle layers of the skin at multiple sites across the face to enhance, nourish and hydrate. It can be given across all age groups and skin types. The uniqueness of this filler is:

Eye bags is a condition where the fat behind the eye pooches out and leads to formation of bags. It happens due to ageing, hereditary factors and certain medical conditions like thyroid, hypertension or renal disorders.
Patients with this condition complain of:
Tired, drunk and sad
As if they have not taken enough rest
Are unable to wear spectacles properly
Baggy lids: This happens when there is extra fold of skin over the upper lid crease which makes the eye look smaller and heavy. It is usually associated with droopy brows. Additional loose skin may be present. Patients complain of heaviness on eyes, headache in an attempt to open eyes and/or limitation or restriction of the visual field. It can be caused by the following reasons:
Skin laxity/ looseness - causing extra skin to hang over
Atrophy of fat around the brows - leading to descent of the brows
It can be present in all ethnicities but can specifically be seen in north-eastern Indians and Asians
Blepharoplasty surgery is used to restore correct functioning to the affected eyelid(s) and eye aesthetics. It can be done on both upper and lower eyelids to correct puffiness and eye-bags.
Also known as sunken eyes or tear trough deformity, hollowness under eyes is seen as valley, depression or shadow below lower lids. It can affect young and old individuals. It is caused by the following reasons:
Ageing – thinning of lid skin, absorption of fat, bone depression or atrophy, loosening of support structures (ligaments)
Diseases which lead to extensive fat atrophy
Dramatic weight loss
You may look tired, depressed, or show lack of self-confidence. Sunken eyes can make you look older than your age.
Droopy lids, also known as ptosis, is a condition where the upper lid covers the eye. It can vary in degree and severity (mild, moderate, severe). It happens due to weakness of the lid lifting muscle (which is called 'levator').
Depending on the degree of the droop, you may:
Have a cosmetic blemish
Look tired or sleepy
Experience obstruction in the visual field
Have difficulty in reading
Suffer from headaches
Have decreased vision (mainly in children)
Ptosis repair is undertaken through surgical or non-surgical methods depending on the severity of the droop.
Brows are the foundation of a face and play a critical role in determining our expressions of being sad, angry, tired or surprised. However, sometimes due to ageing, injury, paralysis or previous surgeries, brows droop and cause excess skin to fall over the crease causing eyes to look smaller and heavier. This condition is called droopy brows or baggy lids.
A patient normally is not aware that the brow is droopy or lids are baggy but may complain of:
Heaviness of eyes
Extra skin on the lids
Eyes looking smaller
Asymmetry of brows
Inability to wear eye-shadow
A brow lift is a procedure to lift, restore, and fill the droopy, descended and floppy brow and correct baggy lids. At Clinica Fai, we provide both surgical and non-surgical brow lift treatments.
