Does your chin have dimples that give it an orange-peel appearance? Not all dimples are cute – some can create an undesirable, bumpy appearance to the skin. Chin dimples can be caused by muscle contractions that can be controlled by neuromodulator injections. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer chin dimple treatment with Botox® injections at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
The mentalis muscle in the chin is responsible for causing most chin dimples and clefts. Even when your mouth and face seem relaxed, the mentalis muscle may contract to create the orange peel or pebbly appearance on the chin. The uneven appearance can be an aesthetic concern for many people who would prefer a smooth chin. The quickest and most economical solution is Botox chin dimple treatment.
Orange Peel Chin Treatment
Botox injections are one of the most popular facial cosmetic treatments in the world. Botox is a safe neuromodulator that uses botulinum toxin type A to block nerve signals to the targeted muscles. Botox is commonly used to smooth away lines and wrinkles by relaxing the muscles that cause frown or worry lines. It can have the same effect on the mentalis muscle to smooth away an orange peel chin appearance. With precise injections, the dimples and clefts in the chin can disappear in just a few days.
Botox injections are quick and painless. Your chin dimple treatment should only take about 20 minutes, and you can return to your normal activities after your procedure. The most common side effects from the treatment are slight bruising or swelling from the injections. The effects of Botox can take a few days to appear, and you can enjoy 3-4 months of a smoother chin. If the dimpling begins to appear again, you can have repeated Botox treatments to maintain a dimple-free chin.
