Thank you for the question and for including photos. If performed properly, Juvederm should treat the crease without changing the shape of your chin. Make an appointment with a physician who uses multiple products so that there are options when choosing a filler.
A combination approach is your best option.
For a mental
crease such as yours, a combination approach with BOTOX® Cosmetic followed by
Juvéderm® or Restylane® may produce the best results. This helps soften the
line between your lower lip and chin by relaxing the underlying muscles and
adding more tissue volume. Remember that all injectables are temporary
solutions, and you may need to repeat treatments once or twice a year to
maintain optimal results.
Sculptra is a Good Option for the Chin Area
Sculptra is a dermal filler which works over time to stimulate new collagen in the deeper layers of the skin. I offer Sculptra as a good option for those people who feel that gel fillers may cause some distortion when they smile. The good news with Sculptra is that the effects occur gradually so that the treatments can be precisely planned to create the proper amount of filling. Sculptra results are long-lasting, and the resulting growth in new collagen naturally contours the chin.
Fillers work great in this area, a little botox/dysport to the chin would do well too. I suggest seeing a cosmetic dermatologist who specializes in lasers and fillers. Best, Dr. Emer.
Botox & filler combinations work best
I see at least 3-4 cases per week of mental crease - protuberant chin cases, and in the vast majority of time my treatment is very similar to Dr Devani's.
I Botox with 6-8 units, scattered low down on your chin- this 'softens' the chin, and 2 weeks later I use a filler to once again 'soften' the mental crease lines. This gives the most natural results.
All the best

Botox and Fillers may soften the crease
You could try a combination approach with botox and then 2 weeks later, add filler if your still not happy with the result. As the goal is to soften the line, you would need minimal toxin and filler. These are advanced techniques so be sure to get an
experienced dermatologist or plastic surgeon consultation for recommendations
and treatment options.
Chin crease Rx with fillers
The chin crease is a normal part of the anatomy and represents a line of firm fibrous attachment of the skin to the underlying bone. While it can be lessened with filler material or a surgical release, it likely will not disappear and in fact could look abnormal.
The mental crease is normal for everyone's appearance. If you fill the crease, it won't look normal. Right now you have a very natural and even pretty chin and mental crease. As the saying goes, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". On the other hand, if you really want to eliminate it, use one of the fillers that has a shorter duration initially. If it gets you what you want, then go with one that has a longer duration. If it doesn't work, you lose several hundred dollars. jlr
