One dimple in your chin may be cute, but multiple dimples can distort the chin appearance. Orange peel chin or dimpling occurs when the muscles in the chin contract and pull the skin inward, resulting in the chin dimpling effect. If you have an orange peel chin, Botox® treatment may be the solution. Our cosmetic injectors at Westside Aesthetics offers Botox chin dimple treatment at our Los Angeles clinic on Wilshire Boulevard.
Some people experience chin dimpling when eating, talking or making certain facial expressions. Pushing the corners of the mouth down can scrunch the chin and create the dimpling effect, but the skin should smooth again when the chin relaxes. With orange peel chin, the mentalis muscle in the chin is overactive, pulling in the skin and creating the dimpled appearance even when the face is relaxed. The craters in the chin can create a disgruntled or older appearance to the face, which is undesirable.
