Disheartened with the appearance of your chin? Don’t worry a dimpled chin, commonly referred to as the ‘golf ball’ chin is highly characteristic with many patients seeking treatment to rid the chin of both wrinkles and dimples. People seem to be more afflicted with dimpled chins as they age and is associated with the hyperactivity of the mentalis muscle. Functionally this muscle serves us by elevating the bottom lip, causing a pout-like appearance. However, problems arise over time when excessive contraction gives rise to the golf ball presentation highlighting deep-set wrinkles and fine lines.
Realistically, the puckering of the chin is a common concern for many patients visiting our Juvea clinics. Contributing to ageing and making you look older than previous thought, lowering both self-esteem and confidence. Additionally, patients are left with wide-spread chin wrinkles or deep depressions around the jawline.
One fantastic treatment option is using Botox to prevent contraction of the mentalis muscle in the chin, resulting in a brighter rejuvenated appearance. Botox injections are placed across four injection areas across the chin and mouth – avoiding any superficial nerve endings. After several weeks, patients usually notice a significant difference in the visual appearance of their chin, resulting in an improved younger look. Typically, Botox treatments are reversible after a few months which is why we usually consider post-treatment sessions to address any further concerns. At Juvea, we are happy to consult you throughout this process all in the aim to address and reach your aesthetic ideals.

Saliently, we understand your needs and recognise getting any aesthetic procedure is a personal one. In keeping up-to-date with recent technologies, we are continually improving both cosmetic practice and medical techniques used by our esteemed practitioners.
Under our guidance, we feel confident in providing you answers to any queries or concerns with regards to seeking Botox. Many of our previous patient’s have expressed concerns such as ‘Will my smile be natural?’ or ‘Is Botox the right option for me?’ Since many patients are afflicted with an unnatural smile caused by overexposure of the gum. Then Botox is a fantastic treatment solution by injecting into the lip muscle, we can reduce the visible appearance of your gum – giving you a smile you deserve. Essentially, we are not here to make the decision for you but will provide you with information and can even show before and after photos of previous patients.
Botox is relatively safer than many surgical alternatives available by targeting specific areas of the face with ease. You will not require an overnight stay in a hospital or any general anaesthesia. We can accommodate your needs by squeezing a Botox session into your schedule, fitted around your time.
After treatment, we recommend that you avoid aggravating the area or touching your chin. Specifically, you must try and avoid contracting your facial muscles, specifically the area that has been treated, e.g. mentalis muscle. Don not rub or irritate this area, if you can relax for a few days, relax. However, Botox treatments should not affect your ability to go to work, but if you can relax we certainly recommend it. Normally, this is because it takes a few days to two weeks until the full effects of Botox are seen.
In rare cases, you may experience mild discomfort or some bruising to the injected site; however, rest assured this should settle after a few days. Additionally, this is only present in a scarce portion of cases, most of our patients exhibit no bruising and can conduct their routine affairs with ease.

As discussed, a dimpled chin is caused by excessive contraction of the mentalis muscle, the muscle responsible for elevating the upper lip. Due to constraints of ageing, this muscle can be hyperactive, giving people the characteristic ‘golf ball’ chin. Botox offers multiple advantages because it reduces contraction of the mentalis muscle and is non-invasive, unlike chin augmentation surgery. Additionally, it neatly fits into your lunch-hour and does not require any hospitalisation. Not to mention the effects of Botox can last as long as several months.
Unlike surgical methods, many patients report minimal discomfort with Botox injections, which can easily fit into a tight schedule. In cases where patients are sensitive to pain, a numbing cream can be applied to eliminate any discomfort.
Botox is a protein derived from a bacterium called Clostridium botulinum and aims to prevent the release of a naturally occurring chemical called acetylcholine. Acetylcholine plays a crucial role in the contraction of muscles and thus preventing its release reduces the contraction of those muscles often present in individuals with wrinkles or dimples in their chin. As an FDA approved prescription drug, only a medically qualified physician can prescribe Botox with even tighter regulations around who can inject it. Hence, at Juvea, we only use highly experienced practitioners to treat our patients.
Botox is an FDA-approved drug in which only highly qualified medical professionals can prescribe it and must be adequately trained in injecting it into patients. Unlike surgical procedures, it is less invasive and doesn’t require any general anaesthesia or an overnight stay in a hospital.
Chin dimpling is commonly caused by excessive contraction of the mentalis muscle, associated with more profound and finer wrinkles. Age is a common issue since fat is generally lost around the chin area, pulling the mentalis muscle even further. However, even ultra-violet exposure from the sun can directly affect this area, promoting the development of chin wrinkles. Additionally, patients with adult acne can affect the youthfulness of the skin developing dimpling.
From the consultation all the throughout the post-treatment we will thoroughly advise you on what to do. For example, we recommend that you do not attempt to use your muscles to smile or aggravate the treatment area. Specifically, we prefer that you allow your face to rest during the post-operational period. Essentially this area may be slightly sore and in some cases can bruise from the Botox injections. However, we will follow-up with another consultation to ensure that we have helped you reach your aesthetic ideals.
After a few days, some patients will notice the significant effects of treatment with Botox. However, we usually recommend you wait for at least a few weeks to see to complete effects, resulting in a weakening of the mentalis muscle in the chin. Additionally, this improves the appearance of your chin, giving a youthful appearance and with a reduction in the characteristic dimpling.
Normally, this depends on the severity of your chin dimples, which varies from patient to patient. However, a single treatment of Botox can last several months with a need for re-treatment following that period.
