Botox for Chin Dimpling?

I have several deep dimples in my chin, and I've heard Botox could get rid of them. What do you think?

Botox great in the chin


Botox is a great way to relax lines and dimples in the chin caused by hyperactive muscles, resulting in a smoother, fuller chin area. Botox relaxation in the chin can also help acne scars that might be accentuated by the muscle action in the chin. Botox is an easy treatment and low doses are used in the chin.

Chin Dimpling


This is an area where Botox and Dysport work very well. The even dispersion of Dysport makes it my preferred product in this area. the results are impressive and patients have always been very satisfied with these treatments.... it is also cost effective since units used are minimal

My opinion


Botox, Dysport and Xeomin can be used to relax the muscle that causes chin dimpling.  Alternatively, an injectable filler such as Restylane or even Sculptra can be used to fill those chin flaws. Botox and Dysport have about a three month duration.  Restalyne and Sculptra last longer, but do cost a bit more.

Botox and Dysport remove chin dimples


This question is pretty straight foward as evidenced by all the MD answers, Botox and Dysport work great for chin dimpling and sometimes creases in the chin.  They relax the muscle that we all have in our chin.  It lasts for about 3-4 months.

Botox and the Chin


Botox in small doses can help alleviate the indentations of the chin. However, it is not for all patients and needs careful thought before proceeding.

Botox works well for chin dimples


Chin dimples are caused by action of the muscle mentalis on the skin. Botox works very well by relaxing this ansd by making the chin surface smoother.

Botox for deep chin dimples


Very low dose Botox can be very effective for the undulating effect that can occur on the chin related to mentalis muscle function. If you are more concerned about a line or chin deep groove, use of a filler or volumizing agent may be more appropriate.

Botox for chin dimpling


Chin dimpling, or “marbled chin” is very effectively treated with 2-3 injections of low-dose botulinum toxin. As with all botulinum treatments, the effects are temporary, but quite effective.
