Hello, Botox can definitely help with the contraction of your chin, so it does not wrinkle as much. However, you need filler more than you need Botox. I would fill your chin with Voluma and feel strongly that this would be an excellent option for you. I have Voluma in my own chin and it has minimal side effects which include temporarily bruising and swelling.
Good luck Dr. Downie.

Botox is a great option for treating dimpling or wrinkles of the chin or what is often referred to as "golf ball" or "orange peel" chin . Overactive muscles in the chin and jaw can cause the skin to pull tightly creating contour irregularities. Treating the area with 10 to 20 units of botox is very effective in relaxing the muscles involved and giving the chin a smoother more full appearance. The treatment typically lasts 3 to 4 months. You can enhance and smooth the chin with dermal filler or a combination of the two products. Dermal filler is more expensive but will last up to one year and corrects the problem by adding volume to the area.

Botox can help with the dimpling in the chin. In your case, you really need to be careful since you mentioned your dimpling occurs when you close your mouth. If you get too much of a dose then your lower lip isn't going to be able to close and you may drool. Clearly that is not the result people want. Botox is more effective for a dimpling chin that develops with activity because that represents the muscle being overactive at certain times. When there is dimpling at rest that means the muscle is working to keep your mouth closed.
I would highly recommend you consult with a facial plastic surgeon or dermatologist who performs the injections to be evaluated and determine what you can expect after treatment.
I hope this helps and good luck.
