Botox for a Dimpled Chin

Anna Kremerov
Checked By Anna Kremerov

If you're self-conscious about the dimpled appearance of your chin area, small injections of Botox in the chin muscle could make a big difference!

A dimpled chin is different to a double chin or a cleft chin, which both also affect the chin's appearance.

What Is a Dimpled Chin and How Is It Caused?

Characterised by a singular indentation in the middle of your chin area or an 'orange peel chin' appearance, chin dimpling can bother some people.

An indentation is usually hereditary, while multiple dimples are an effect of loss of collagen and elastin as we age, along with hyperactivity of the mentalis muscle (located at the tip of the chin).

Can Botox Fix a Dimpled Chin?

Can Botox Fix a Dimpled Chin?

Yes, we can reduce the appearance of a dimpled chin by placing a small amount of Botox in the lower part of Mentalis chin muscle.

Chin Botox will reduce repeated contraction of the chin muscles allowing them to relax and minimise chin dimples in the future.

Botox is a brand name for botulinum toxin – a product that relaxes chin muscles to reduce their hyperactivity. Other brands available in the UK include Bocouture, Azzalure, Letybo and Nuceiva

When botulinum toxin is injected into the chin, it smooths dimples and the 'orange peel' appearance.

Where Do They Inject Botox for Dimpled Chin?

The botulinum toxin is injected into the mentalis muscle to reduce the appearance of a dimpled chin.

What Should I Expect From Botox for Dimpled Chin Treatment?

Botulinum toxin treatment is quick and isn't painful; you'll just feel a 'sharp scratch' of the needle when it is injected.

There may be some redness and swelling, which will calm down a few hours after treatment.

You'll start noticing a difference in the appearance of your chin after a couple of days, with a complete result noticeable following two weeks. The effect will last three to six months before you'll need a top-up to maintain results.

How Much Does It Cost to Treat a Dimpled Chin With Botox Injections?

How Much Does It Cost to Treat a Dimpled Chin With Botox Injections?

You can generally expect to pay £200-£400 to get rid of your dimpled chin with botulinum toxin. The price depends on the location of your practitioner and their level of experience.

Remember, avoid being swayed by cost over experience when booking your chin Botox – your safety should always come first!

Are There Side Effects to Treating a Dimpled Chin With Botox?

Side effects to Botox and other brands of botulinum toxin are rare, but can include:

  • Headaches

  • Chin muscle twitching

  • Crooked smile

  • Swelling and bruising around the injection site

  • Allergic reaction

The most dangerous complications are double vision and difficulty breathing, but these are thankfully extremely rare.

If you experience any side effects or complications, contact your practitioner immediately.

Who Should You Trust to Treat Your Dimpled Chin With Botox?

Always look for a medical practitioner who has experience in treating this area of the face. Chin dimples are a less common concern compared to forehead lines and crow's feet, so you want someone who's done this before and has had specific training!

We highly recommend that you only undergo Botox for dimpled chin treatment with a medically-qualified professional, who will have undergone training in anatomy and physiology, as well as be accountable to a regulatory body such as the General Medical Council (GMC), Nursing and Midwifery Council (NMC) or General Dental Council (GDC).

They should also be able to advise you of the risks of injectable chin wrinkles treatment and be confident in handling complications if they arise.
