A Canada-first new hyaluronic acid injectable designed to augment the chin region, Restylane SHAYPE, is making waves.

Today’s top cosmetic physicians are using dermal fillers to achieve some truly jaw-dropping results. The use of dermal fillers has evolved over the years, and remarkable profile balancing effects and natural-looking enhancements can now be achieved, effectively addressing various facial concerns and boosting patients’ natural beauty.

Non-surgical solutions

“Dermal fillers are injectable solutions that improve patients’ overall appearance in a non-surgical manner,” says Dr. Andrei Metelitsa, a board-certified dermatologist and Co-Director of Beacon Dermatology based in Calgary, Alta. “The most common types contain hyaluronic acid, which can enhance certain features, replenish lost volume, or improve the overall appearance, shape, and even texture and quality of the skin.”

From reducing the signs of aging to refreshing appearances, hyaluronic acid filler is the industry go-to. It’s customizable, reversible (using an enzyme called hyaluronidase), and provides personalized, natural-looking results — so long as patients opt for experienced practitioners using top-of-the-line products.

“When you think of hyaluronic acid filler, the first brand that comes to mind is Restylane,” says Dr. Metelitsa. Restylane, an established hyaluronic acid filler brand, has been used in Canada for over 25 years and has a legacy of safety and efficacy with 65 million treatments worldwide. 

A new innovation

Restylane offers a range of dermal filler subtypes to address different areas of the face. Restylane SHAYPE, which recently launched in Canada, is a new hyaluronic acid injectable designed for augmenting the chin region.

“It’s a very unique product,” says Dr. Metelitsa. “Restylane SHAYPE was specifically formulated to treat the chin, which addresses concerns affecting the lower face, with the firmest hyaluronic acid gel on the market to deliver a bone-mimicking effect. Traditionally, patients who wanted enhancement, restoration, elongation, or accentuation of the chin had to see a plastic surgeon, but now we can create a non-surgical enhancement of the chin within minutes.”

The exciting innovation was developed in partnership with Canadian doctors and is currently exclusive to Canada, as the first country in the world to receive approval and launch to the marketplace. It offers immediate results, minimal healing, and low complication rates.

“People might be surprised to learn that the profile, shape, and projection of the chin are considered some of the most important components of facial attractiveness in both men and women,” says Dr. Metelitsa. 

The chin plays a key role in shaping one’s overall appearance, impacting the harmony of facial proportions, profile, and shape. Restylane SHAYPE can therefore make an incredible difference in creating facial balance.
