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
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.
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 or Dysport can help but other treatments may be necessary
Mild dimpling of the skin overlying the chin can be helped with Botox/Dysport to relax the mentalis muscle. Deeper dimpling may benefit from filler ( like Perlane or Juvederm) or even laser skin resurfacing. It may be necessary to do more than one treatment if the dimples are as deep as you describe.
Botulinum A (Botox and Dysport) relax the Mentalis muscle which when constracted, will dimple the chin. Dimpling is often more frequent in patients who have acne scars on their chin. If scars are a component, Botox/Dysport can be supplemented with silicone injection into the scars for a longer lasting result.
Botox can be very helpful in reducing dimpling of the chin. This works by relaxing the muscles which are contributing to the fold. In some cases, a small amount of filler in addition to Botox will completely smooth out that line. Good luck, /nsn.
What you have heard about Botox helping chin dimpling is correct. Dysport works similarly well and may have more long lasting results. For deep dimpling you will likely need a filler in addition to the Botox or Dysport for best results.
It depends on whether the dimples are genetically present, i.e. present even in your youth or young adulthood, or have developed over years of chin muscle use. Botox does work well for the latter. It is also effective in correcting the skin pitting (orange peel skin) that occurs with age on the chin. Good luck!
As others have mentioned, Botox and Dysport can be highly effective in treating chin dimples, provided they are dynamic lines. If the lines do not change with changes in expression, they may be the results of dermal scarring, and could be better treated with injectable fillers.
Your best bet is consultation with a physician who is an experienced injector of Botox and fillers. Best of luck!
As other doctors noted, Botox is a great treatment for chin dimpling, provided, however, it is not caused by scarring. It will not work for deep scars. Restylane will be a much better product for these, and frequently, we use it in conjunction with Botox as well.
Botox is great for this, but the effects will only last about 3 months. Dysport is another botulinum toxin that may actually last longer than Botox and some offices probably offer Dysport at a cheaper price than Botox. Good luck!
Botox works well for chin dimples or wrinkling. However, make sure that you are being injected by an experienced injector. Too much Botox around the mouth can lead to abnormal function and look of the mouth and lips. Good luck.
Botox certainly can be used to relax the muscles around the chin which give you that "peach pit" appearance. The use of Botox for this indication is "off-label" so insure that you see an experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon for this procedure.
Botox does work very well for those with chin dimples. I would say these are some of the happiest botox patients, because otherwise there is very little that you can do from a cosmetic standpoint to address this concern. Typically, the dosing is less than for other areas of the face, such as the forehead. Of course, this is patient dependent. As an aside, most patients note that they have less tension in their jaw after their treatment.
Chin dimpling that occurs in that area is due to an overactive muscle. For some that is quite apparent. Botox helps relax that muscle and a couple of injection in the area of the chin can help get rid of the dimpling in a matter if few days with results that can last for 3-4 months. The ibjector, however, should be aware of the anatomy in that area as there are other small muscle that pull the lips down for which the Botox can diffuse to. Best results are achieved by injecting conervatively...
We have had good luck with 6 to 12 units of Botox in the mentalis are for an overactive muscle. This is one of the "off label" uses of Botox. It works, but make sure your doctor has experience in using Botox in this area, and make sure you have discussed any possible side effects of using it in this area.
The dimples are caused by an overactive mentalis muscle. This is particularly a problem after some chin augmentation procedures. We have found Botox very helpful . We actually like to use Botox as a pre-op treatment before augmenting someone's chin.
One of my favorite uses of Botox! We call it "orange peel " chin
Know how the skin of an orange is dimpled? That is what doctors call "orange peel" skin. It responds wonderfully to Botox injections.
As I'm sure you know, Botox relaxes the muscle into which it is injected. There is a paired muscle in the chin, the mentalis muscle, that allows you to wrinkle your chin, and movement can cause the dimpled chin you have noticed. A few units of Botox in the chin will stop the mentalis muscle from contracting and smooth out the chin. My patients LOVE...
Yes, we sometimes call this "prune chin". It is quite common following removal of chin implants that have been placed through the mouth.
The first thing to evaluate is why you are dimpling. Sometimes this is simply a way of expressing yourself and is a learned habit. Othertimes it can be due to lip strain when your lips subconsciously strain to cover prominent teeth. In this case, fixing your dentition is a better longterm option.
Botox to the chin can effect the lower lip and...
The excessive movement of the mentalis muscle not only causes unsightly dimpling, but promotes shadowing of the chin which accentuates the jowls and "puppet" marionette lines. The injection points must be precise to prevent mouth asymmetry, so go to an expert.
Botox is excellent for the little lines emanting from the lips.
It also can be used for chin dimpling. However, your physician should be careful not to place those injections to close to the mouth. They should be injected on the bottom half of the chin, no closer than the half-way point. Poor placement can lead to poor enunciation and drooling.
Patients who get dimpling of the chin from pursing their lips and over-contraction of the chin muscles can get great results from low dose Botox. This should be used very carefully since it is near the mouth. Also it is an "off label" use so it really is being used by your doctor based on their knowledge and experience with Botox and your understanding that it is not specifically FDA approved for this use.
Botox can be used to soften the dimples in the chin that occur with the aging process. They can help the "organge peel" effect on the chin by diminishing the muscle contractions in those areas. Typically it helps decrease the muscle actiivity in that area and can last 3 to 6 months.
The only FDA approved use of BOTOX Cosmetic is for smoothing wrinkles at the base of the nose, between the brows. Use of Botox elsewhere falls under the category of "Off Label" use which means that it is up to a Doctor to decide how to use a drug on his/her patient.
Since Botox works best by smoothing ACTIVE wrinkles - those caused by the contracture of the expression muscles just under them, the use of Botox has many potential application.
In some people, especially those with a...
