What’s the cause?

Apart from the jaw bone, the chin is made up of the mentalis muscle. An overly dimpled chin occurs when the mentalis muscle scrunches up the tissue in the chin, resulting in the ‘orange peel’ effect. With some patients, this overactive muscle can cause spasms in the chin, which can be improved with Botulinum toxin injections.

Chin Botox® treatment

By using Botulinum Toxin, we can simply stop your Mentalis muscles from scrunching up the tissue. The treatment is very straightforward, with patients finding the ‘orange peel’ effect significantly reduced when moving or expressing their lower face. This treatment will take approximately 15 minutes with peak results after 14 days.

Lines and wrinkles will not disappear completely following Botulinum toxin treatment. In most cases their appearance are just reduced.
