Chin Dimples/Chin Crease
The appearance of dimples across the chin occur because the muscle underneath is contracting too much. To stop the dimples from forming, you must stop the contraction of the muscle. The treatment used is a few small anti-wrinkle injections into the chin muscle (the mentalis muscle). This relaxes the muscle and softens the skin, helping the dimpled appearance to disappear.
Antiwrinkle – frown lines treated with antiwrinkle to stop the formation of static lines
Dimples can be cute, but chin dimples when we smile or worse, when we are self conscious or embarrassed don’t look good. A directed relaxation of the problem muscles can return a lovely chin dynamic.
We use a range of injectable relaxants and pride ourselves on achieving fresh, vital, real results with our highly qualified doctors and nurses.
A bespoke treatment of anti-wrinkle medication will be administered. The procedure is safe, not painful and quick to perform. Note the treatment is temporary, relaxing the muscle for approximately 3-6 months. For optimum results continued anti-wrinkle treatments are required.
There is a detailed consultation with the cosmetic nurse or doctor to discuss treatment options based on the patient expectations. During the consultation the cosmetic nurse or doctor will assess your face, note asymmetry, and take photographs to document your cosmetic journey.
Anti-wrinkle treatments are generally well tolerated. You will notice the product taking effect 2-4 days after the procedure, and full effect will be visible 2 weeks after the treatment.
The most common side effects include: local irritation or redness and mild to moderate swelling. Although rare, bruising can occur. If it does remember it is temporary and can be covered with make up 24 hours after the treatment.
