Many individuals develop a rough skin texture on the front area of the chin that can look something like an orange peel, This crêping of the skin is mostly a result of repeated contractions of the chin muscle. Over time, the contractions may result in numerous thin, cross-hatched lines that give the chin this undesirable look. We can treat this with small amounts of muscle relaxant injectables that are placed with one or two tiny injections at the bottom tip of the chin.
The intent is to gently relax the muscles in the chin, so that contractions are not as pronounced. Over time, this treatment can eliminate or greatly reduce the crêping. If injections are repeated as close as possible to the time that the effects begin to wear off, then it is likely that treatments will be needed less frequently over time, and with only minimal amounts of product. In effect, the thin grooves tend to fade away in many individuals after a few treatments.
