How Can We Eliminate The Pitting and Orange Peel Appearance Of The Chin?

Not satisfied with the appearance of your chin? For example, do you have a congenital dimple or is your chin as rough as a golf ball or orange peel when talking?

What we can do for such an aesthetic problem, we asked to Physician Gokce Haspolat MD:

“Don't worry, we have a solution for almost any patient who usually has a 'golf ball' chin or a dimple-like dimple on their chin. Let's start with some anatomy.

People have a jagged chin as they age and is associated with hyperactivity of the mentalis muscle. Functionally, this muscle serves us by lifting the lower lip, causing a sullen appearance.

However, problems arise over time when excessive contraction leads to a golf ball look that accentuates deep wrinkles and fine lines.

The Orange Peel Appearance On The Chin Makes Us Look Older Than We Are

We have a great selection of treatments. Botox can be used to prevent contraction of the mentalis muscle in the chin and to achieve a brighter and rejuvenated appearance.

Botox injections are given to four injection sites along the chin and mouth. After a few weeks, patients often notice a significant difference in the visual appearance of their chin, resulting in a younger appearance.

Typically, Botox treatments are permanent for 4 to 6 months. You can repeat it when you realize that the effect wears off.

The Chin Dimple Can Be Filled

Medical filler can be applied to the congenital deep pit, or in other words, to the dimple, which is often in the middle of the chin.

It is important to apply only enough filler to cover the pit and not to change the profile. The effect of the filler is 1 year.

Extends The Effect Of Botox Filler Applied To The Chin
