Botox chinDid you know that Botox Cosmetic can actually help minimize the appearance of chin dimples and creases? Just as it helps wrinkles and fine lines in other areas of the face, it has proven to be effective in minimizing the appearance of chin dimpling. The board-certified dermatologists at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego are experts in the use of neuromodulators to smooth out chin dimples and other chin lines and wrinkles.

Botox for Chin Dimples

Chin dimpling is usually caused by an overactive mentalis muscle. The mentalis is a muscle pair on the tip of the chin that helps control the movement of the lower lip. Patients with this kind of dimpling can often experience great improvement in the appearance of the chin with neuromodulator injections.

Through the careful placement of the injections, the mentalis muscle can be calmed and relaxed to smooth out the dimpled area. Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are neuromodulators that stop the receipt of nerve impulses to the muscle so that the muscle stops contracting. This causes the area to relax and the dimples to be less apparent. Patients with especially deep chin dimples and creases may experience optimal results from the injection of facial fillers or a combination of fillers and neuromodulators.

Botox for Chin Dimpling FAQ

The Botox experts at Cosmetic Laser Dermatology in San Diego want to help you find the treatment that will best meet your needs. Read through the answers to some common questions below to see if neuromodulators for chin dimpling are right for you.

Q: What causes chin dimpling?

A: A lot of dimpling is caused by a hyperactive mentalis muscle. The contracting of this muscle causes the appearance of dimples or creases that can often be minimized through neurotoxin injections. It is important to note that some chin dimpling can be the result of acne scarring, which is best treated with facial fillers. In some patients, a combination of facial fillers and neuromodulators provides optimal results.

Q: How does Botox Cosmetic help?

A: Botox stops the nerve impulses that are sent to the muscle, preventing it from contracting. The contracting of the muscle during facial movement is what causes most chin dimpling, so by relaxing the muscle, the area on the surface smooths out and chin dimpling is less visible.

Q: What is the cost?

A: The cost of Botox will vary depending on the individual patient, the treatment area, and desired outcome. Schedule a consultation with one of our experienced injectors so that he/she can create a treatment plan tailored to your needs. The cost of the treatment can then be evaluated.

Q: Am I a good candidate?

A: A patient who is in good health and wishes to minimize the appearance of chin dimples or wrinkles is likely a good candidate. Schedule a consultation with one of our board-certified dermatologists to discuss your desires and see if you are a good candidate for a treatment performed by the San Diego neuromodulaor experts.

Q: How long will the results last?

A: Results vary from one person to the next as each person’s body metabolizes the neuromodulator differently. On average, though, onabotulinum toxin type A injection results last between four and six months. Treatments for dimples can be repeated once results have worn off.
