The role of the chin is often overlooked when addressing facial aesthetic concerns, however a well rounded and proportionally shaped chin helps to improve the aesthetic appearance and balance of the face.
When looking at someone’s face, the overall shape and relative proportions are the first things that we notice, and the chin is an important component.
One of the major causes of a wrinkled and dimpled looking chin is the contraction of the main muscle in the chin, known as the mentalis muscle.
This peau d’orange or an orange peel effect of the chin can be seen at rest or with talking and tends to become more pronounced with advancing age and loss of tissue thickness.
Over long periods of time the hyperactivity of the muscle can result in deep lines and creases under the lower lip.
How To Restore A Smooth, Dimple-Free Chin
Botox can be used to relax the mentalis muscle at specific points restoring and rejuvenating the appearance of the chin.
We will assess the face at rest and also when you are smiling and talking. If you are suitable, Botox can be delivered to the underlying muscle using ultra-fine micro-needles.
Results will be seen in 3-5 days, and we will arrange a follow up appointment 2 weeks after treatment to assess and review the improvement.
