Botox for Chin Dimpling
SEARCHING FOR SOMETHING to soften chin dimpling and restore the youthful appearance it once boasted?
Then consider Anti-wrinkle ( Botox ) injections to relax this muscle resulting in less chin skin irregularity and a more youthful appearance. Until relatively recently, cosmetic doctors struggled to treat this complaint effectively. This cobblestone appearance is caused by over activity of the mentalis muscle which can be quite noticeable in certain facial expressions. In addition the ageing process changes the bone support to the chin and soft tissue becomes more lax. The chin texture changes taking on an orange peel, dimpling or bobbly appearance. At Cosmeticdoctor we have had great success in treating “Bobbly chin” with muscle relaxing injections.
Small injections using a very fine needle are administered to the chin area into the muscles which cause the dimpling. Typically I place an injection on either side of the midline (2 injections total) using about 5 units of Botox on each side. Effects starts within 3-5 days and lasts 3-4 months.
