What’s the cause?
Together with the jaw bone, the chin is made up of the mentalis muscle. An overly dimpled chin occurs when the mentalis muscle scrunches up the tissues in the chin, resulting in the ‘orange peel’ effect. With some patients, this overactive muscle can cause spasms in the chin, which can be rectified with simple Botox® injections.
Chin Botox® treatment
By using Botulinum Toxin, we can simply stop the mentalis muscles from scrunching up the tissues, by relaxing the muscle. The treatment is very straightforward, with patients finding the ‘orange peel’ effect significantly reduced when moving or expressing their lower face.
