Also known as ‘Peau De Orange’ (orange peel), dimpling or puckering of the chin is a common complaint. It is also seen on those who have a recessed chin and the appearance of the chin gets worse whenever the Mentalis muscle (chin muscle) contracts.
This common complaint can be simply and effectively corrected by Botulinum toxin (also known as Botox®) injections to reduce the activity of the mentalis muscle to create smoother skin on the chin. Another benefit of having this area done is if you have a deep horizontal crease in your chin, this will soften.
Carefully administrated BOTOX® injections in small doses can smooth the skin that covers your chin as the mentalis muscle relaxes and lies flatter.
Dimpled Chin Treatment FAQs
How Does It Work?
Botulinum Toxin (commercial name: BOTOX®) is a purified protein produced by a bacteria, when carefully injected it relaxes contracted facial muscles. Botulinum Toxin blocks the chemical signal from the nerves that responsible for the hyperactive chin muscle, which is causing the dimpled chin.
What Can I Expect In Treatment?
A small amount of BOTOX® will be injected in one – two areas in the chin to weaken the muscles. Within the next 3-4 days, the mentalis muscle will begin to weaken reducing the appearance of the dimpling.
Are There Any Side Effects?
It's important that injections be placed precisely in order to avoid side effects. Skin Health Spa have been specialising in BOTOX® treatments since 1999 and our medical practitioners have a wealth of experience in administering Botulinum Toxin.
BOTOX® treatment isn’t painful and most clients compare the feeling to that of a quick sharp scratch. You may experience some mild swelling or bruising at the injection site.
How Many Treatments Would I Need?
A single treatment of Botox can last around 2-7 months depending on the individual case.
What Results Can I Expect To See?
Results don’t show immediately and you can expect to wait a 3-4 days for the treatment to take affect and up to 10 days - 2 weeks for the full effect to be seen. Results will last for a period of up to 2-7 months depending on dosage and the individual case, after which many clients return for further treatment.
The treatment was so quick and I saw a difference after just 6 days. I'm over the moon with the results.Rebecca, Dorridge
