I have a small well trimmed beard (maybe 2-3 millimeters thick) but I don't know if I have to shave my face completely bald for the doctors to see where to inject and how much to inject.

Shaving for Chin Filler

  Hi and thank you for your question! Obviously it will make it much more easier for your doctor to perform the injections if you shave your face and it can also help with more accurate documentation of the treatment results (with before and after pictures). This being said, it is still possible to do it without shaving the area and I have done it for some of my patients who were not willing to shave their face. I hope it helps and good luck!
