Naturally, some people contract their chin more than others while they are closing their mouth. The dimply chin is caused by the contraction of the underlying Mentalis muscle. The muscle has numerous attachments to the skin of the chin, this causes the ‘Dimply Chin’ effect which leaves the appearance of wrinkles cobblestoned, pebbly, peach pit or peau d’ orange appearance on your chin. Botulinum toxin treatment will allow the appearance to minimise hugely and makes this less obvious.
The effect of treatment lasts for 2 – 3 months. A repeat treatment will be required when the underlying muscle begin to contract, prior to lines returning to their pre-treatment expression.
Static mental crease usually responds better to a combination of Botulinum toxin and dermal filler treatment.
