As time progresses, aging will become more and more apparent in the skin. Wrinkles can leave us feeling self-conscious of our appearance. While aging may be inevitable, common signs of aging such as wrinkles, are certainly treatable. That’s where Botox can help.
Botox–Botulinum toxin–is the most commonly used method for cosmetic improvements with over six million treatments each year. It is used to improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles and has been proven to be a safe and valuable therapeutic protein. Botox helps relax the muscles in the targeted area which in turn reduces their contraction, softening the appearance of wrinkles and lines.
Chin Imperfections treated with Botox
Gertsberg Aesthetics in Brooklyn, New York often uses Botox to treat dimples in the chin as well as other chin inconsistencies. Often referred to as a “cleft chin,” dimples can be caused by either the jaw bone not fusing properly or the skin being pulled inward due to longer chin muscles. Botox works to relax the muscles around the dimple which can help reduce its appearance.
Some people have what is known as “creping”, which is an area of rough texture on the chin. Creping is generally caused by the chin muscle repeatedly contracting. Treating this area with Botox and reducing chin muscle movement can grant a smoother complexion.
Pronounced Mental Crease
A pronounced mental crease, the indentation between the lower lip and chin, can cause the mouth to have a puckering effect. Treating this area with Botox can grant amazing results of smoother-looking skin.
Wrinkles around the chin are generally thin, allowing them to easily be treated with Botox injections. Botox works to soften these wrinkles for a younger appeal.
