Botox for Chin Dimpling?

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.
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
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.
