Chin creases, dimpling and shape

As we age, our chin muscles often become overactive and shorten, giving our chin a ball shape appearance with dimpling and deep creasing.


This dimpling and chin creasing is usually caused by an overactive mentalis muscle, which is a muscle pair on the tip of the chin that helps control the movement of the lower lip.


Through the careful placement of anti wrinkle injections, the mentalis muscle can be relaxed. This relaxation makes the dimples, chin creasing and golf ball appearance less apparent.


Patients with especially deep chin creases may experience optimal results from the injection of dermal fillers or a combination of dermal fillers and anti wrinkle injections.
