Chin Botox

As a person ages, the skin around the chin can dimple or wrinkle. In some cases, the skin in this area can take on an “orange peel” look in terms of texture. Botox for the chin is a treatment offered by Georgia Skin Specialists to remove this wrinkling or dimpling effect and create a more smooth, youthful appearance.

Botox is the abbreviated name for Botulinum Toxin A. This neuromodulator relaxes muscles and can cause wrinkling effects to disappear for several months. Botox is FDA-approved for treating wrinkles and has been deemed safe for most patients, but speak with your doctor before getting treatments so you can assess your individual risk.

How Does the Chin Botox Treatment Work?

The mentalis muscle in the chin causes wrinkling and dimpling, eventually due to repeated flexing. Crepey skin, creases in the chin, or the “golf ball chin” effect can result from this effect. When administered by Georgia Skin Specialists, Botox injections in the mentalis can relax this muscle and give a smooth appearance to the skin. Dimples disappear, and the wrinkles from a cleft chin appearance can also be temporarily removed.

What do Botox Chin Injections Feel Like?

Botox chin injection typically involves 1-2 injections on each side of the chin. Patients might feel a minor sting when the injections are administered. For some patients, Botox for the chin can be enhanced by additional treatments such as dermal fillers.

Possible Side Effects and Risks

Botox in the chin is safe and effective when performed by an experienced injector like the providers at Georgia Skin Specialists. There may be minimal redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites that resolves within a few hours to a few days. The provider will discuss all of the potential risks of Botox side effects with each individual patient, based on their personal risk factors. This consultation will take place before administering Botox injections.

Results of Chin Botox Treatments in Atlanta

Most patients begin to see results from Chin Botox Treatments within two or three days. After seven to ten days, the full effect of the treatment will be visible.

Botox is not a permanent treatment option for wrinkling in the chin because the body gradually breaks the neuromodulator compound down over a period that can last from three to six months. To maintain a smooth undimpled chin, patients may return to Georgia Skin Specialists in Atlanta two to three times a year for the Chin Botox Treatment.
