Did you know that Botox Cosmetic can actually help minimize the appearance of chin dimples and creases? Just as it helps wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face, it has proven to be effective in minimizing the appearance of chin dimpling. Kristin Gunn is an expert in the use of neuromodulators to smooth out chin dimples and other chin lines and wrinkles.
The chin gets wrinkled during talking, smiling and eating. This is called an orange peel chin, peau d’orange chin, cobblestone chin, or a dimpled golf ball chin. This dimpling is created when the muscles beneath the skin of the chin contract and pull their fibrous connections to the overlying skin inwards creating the illusion of dimpling.
It can be easily corrected by injecting 5-10 units of Botox into several points at the base of the chin. Wrinkles are smoothed out as the underlying muscles relax.
Botox for Dimpled Chin
Chin dimpling is usually caused by an overactive mentalis muscle. The mentalis is a muscle pair on the tip of the chin that helps control the movement of the lower lip. Patients with this kind of dimpling can often experience great improvement in the appearance of the chin with neuromodulator injections.
Through the careful placement of the injections, the mentalis muscle can be calmed and relaxed to smooth out the dimpled area. Botox and Dysport are neuromodulators that stop the receipt of nerve impulses to the muscle so that the muscle stops contracting. This causes the area to relax and the dimples to be less apparent. Patients with especially deep chin dimples and creases may experience optimal results from the injection of facial fillers or a combination of fillers and neuromodulators.
