Botox® Injections for Chin Dimples

If your chin has a dimpled look resembling the skin of an orange, it is most likely due to the contraction of the mentalis muscle. This pebbly, dimpled appearance can be altered with Botox® injections. An injection of Botox into the mentalis muscle will cause the area to remain in a relaxed state so the dimples will not show. The area remains relaxed even when the muscle is contracted.

While this treatment is not permanent, the results will last for a few months, and it is more cost effective than plastic surgery. Your chin is one of the prominent features of your face. If you are not satisfied with its appearance due to dimples, the Botox option may be the best one for you.

Another concern involving the chin is often the mental crease. This indentation occurs between the lower lip and the chin and forms near the top of the mentalis muscle. This indentation runs horizontally and can produce a puckering effect with the lower lip. In some instances, it is pronounced enough to make an individual look older. Treatment with Botox often provides excellent results. Severely creased chins may also benefit from the addition of a dermal filler.

Creating a Smoother Chin

The dimples and creases that appear on the chin are due to the position of the mentalis muscle. Repetitive motions of this muscle can create changes in the skin above, leading to dimpling or creasing. Research shows that the positioning of the mentalis muscle is hereditary. If your parents have dimpled chins, you are more likely to have one as well. For individuals who do not appreciate this inherited trait, Botox injections can temporarily eliminate the problem.

Botox is a neurotoxin that blocks signals between the nerves and the brain when injected into the muscle. Just enough Botox is injected to cause the muscle to relax, so it no longer produces the amount of tension needed to create the dimples or creases. The natural movement of the muscle is maintained.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
