Chin crease anti-wrinkle injections Overview



Is an unsightly horizontal crease or dimpled "peach pit" texture on your chin hindering your confidence and making you look older than you actually are? Don't let this bothersome concern discourage you any longer. 

Peak Life Health is the top clinic for chin crease anti-wrinkle injections in Garland, Sunnyvale, Mesquite, Forney, and the DFW area, TX. We specialize in innovative chin anti-wrinkle injections using Botox to soften those stubborn rhytids while re-contouring and rejuvenating your entire chin and jawline.

Understanding Chin Creases (Rhytids)

Rhytids is the medical term used to describe the wrinkles, creases, and folds that form in our skin over time due to the natural effects of aging. The horizontal line or indentation across the chin area just above the jawline is called the "mentalis rhytid," or chin crease.

What Causes Chin Creasing & Dimpling?

This unattractive furrowed or puckered appearance is primarily caused by an overactive mentalis muscle - one of the muscles that control movements like pursing the lips, protruding the jaw, or creating a dimpled chin look. As we get older, this muscle becomes overworked from decades of repeated contractions. Then it gradually causes the overlying skin to lose elasticity.

This volume depletion and loss of structural support then cause the chin's surface to crease, wrinkle, and pucker, creating what's often described as an "orange peel," cobblestone, or dimpled texture. Factors like genetics, bone structure, collagen depletion, and excessive sun exposure can also worsen chin creasing.

How Botox for Chin Crease Anti-Wrinkle Works

Botox has become known as a powerfully effective, non-surgical solution for smoothing out chin creases, and dimpling, and improving overall definition in the chin/jawline area. It is a purified neurotoxin that, when injected directly into the mentalis and other affected muscles, can relax and soften the puckered, aged appearance.

It works in the following way:

  • Botox blocks the release of acetylcholine, a chemical messenger that stimulates muscle contractions. 
  • When injected into the hyperactive mentalis muscle, Botox temporarily makes the muscle inactive by disrupting the communication between the nerve endings and muscle fibers.
  • By preventing the mentalis from repeatedly folding, bunching, and creasing the skin through its contractions, Botox allows the chin's outer surface to gradually smooth out and recover its naturally firm appearance over 1-2 weeks as the neurotoxin takes full effect.

This process visibly diminishes dynamic wrinkles and rhytids caused specifically by muscle movement, such as:

  • Horizontal chin creases/grooves
  • Puckering and dimpling
  • An overall cobblestone or "peach pit" texture

What you're left with is a smoother, more contoured, and rejuvenated chin aesthetic that restores a more youthful, refreshed, and defined appearance to your entire jawline.

Are You an Ideal Candidate?

Both men and women are considered excellent candidates for safe chin crease anti-wrinkle injections if:

Your Personal Treatment Journey

Consultation & Customized Treatment Planning
During your initial consultation, you will have the opportunity to discuss all of your specific concerns and goals with Dr. Dhillon or one of our aesthetic specialists. They will assess your chin area, facial anatomy, and muscle to develop a fully customized injection treatment plan.

This personalized plan will map out the precise injection sites, the quantity of Botox required, and any complementary treatments that may enhance your results, such as dermal fillers.

On the day of your treatment, the chin area will first be thoroughly cleansed to remove any makeup, oils, or skincare products that could impair results. A topical numbing cream can be applied to minimize any potential pinching sensations from the chin anti-wrinkle injections, though most patients report very little discomfort.

The Injection Process
Next, your highly skilled provider will use an extremely fine needle to carefully administer the Botox into the pre-determined injection sites within the mentalis and other involved muscles. The entire injection process takes just about 10-15 minutes to complete.

You may experience mild pinching sensations during the injections, but these are extremely brief and temporary. Our specialists are trained in the latest injection techniques to target the intended areas while maximizing your comfort.

Aftercare & Results

After your treatment, you can immediately return to your normal daily activities, as no downtime or recovery period is required. You may experience some very mild swelling, redness, or tenderness in the treatment area, but these are normal side effects that typically resolve within a few days.

To minimize swelling, apply a cold compress to the area as needed and avoid rubbing, manipulating, or putting excessive pressure on your chin for at least 4 hours post-treatment.

Over the next one to two weeks, as the Botox temporarily immobilizes the muscle contractions, you will notice that the puckered, dimpled texture and horizontal creasing on your chin gradually begin to smooth out and soften. 

Within 2 weeks, you'll be able to enjoy your full results - a refreshed, rejuvenated, and contoured chin appearance that looks noticeably smoother yet still natural and never frozen or overdone.

These results typically last 3-4 months, after which you can simply return for your next maintenance treatment to re-smooth any lines that begin to return.
