Do You Have a Weak Chin?
Cosmetic treatments can be a suitable solution for those with a weak chin. Enhancing the chin also results in a better jawline contour from the front and side angles. Sometimes patients who have a smaller chin over-activate a muscle called mentalis. Neuromodulators, such as BOTOX® or Dysport®, can be injected into the mentalis, relaxing this muscle, and thus the chin drops slightly; leading to a more rounded appearance of the chin.
In addition, patients who over-activate this muscle have a p’eau d’orange or pebbly appearance of the skin overlying the chin. When we inject neuromodulators into mentalis, this pebbly appearance resolves, and the skin has a smooth appearance. Another option is to use filler to enhance a weak chin. Multiple injection points are made into the chin, resulting in a stronger and more rounded chin.
The contour of the jawline is improved, and there is better facial symmetry. If you are unhappy with the appearance of your chin, consider coming in for a consultation soon. The results are highly gratifying and require little to no downtime.
