A pebbled chin (also sometimes known as ‘pebblestone chin’, ‘orange peel chin’, ‘dimpled chin’) is a condition that can affect adult men and women of all ages. It gets its name ‘pebbled chin’ because of the uneven, bumpy texture.
A pebbled chin is commonly known to be caused by the constant flexing of the chin muscles (medically known as the metalis muscle) and over time, as the skin loses its volume this can have a permanent effect.
It’s also been said that a pebbly chin can also be caused by rapid weight loss in the face.
If you feel like you have a ‘pebble’ chin and want to rectify it, then don’t worry – there is a solution that is quick and effective. By using our Botox® treatment we can relax the chin muscles, smoothing out the chin area.
If you’re feeling self-conscious about your chin, then having Botox treatment is a great way to get your confidence back. It will relax your chin muscles, making your chin look smoother and more even in texture.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) is an effective non-surgical way to smooth out wrinkles and fine lines, and works by temporarily reducing the activity of muscles, in the case of a Pebbled Chin it is injected in the area around the metalis muscles (chin muscles) where the dimples sit – creating a smooth and flawless effect.
The treatment tends to last between 3 and 6 months, but it may last longer depending on your skin’s natural genetic make-up.
An average appointment for this treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes and you will start to see results in a week, and then optimal results can usually be seen in 2 weeks from the day of the treatment.
Also, it’s worth noting that treatment for a Pebbled Chin is generally pain-free, although of course there is an option for a numbing cream to be used on the area if you want it. Side effects of bruising, swelling and bleeding tends to be very rare.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) is used to relax the muscles in the chin that cause the bumpy, rippled effect associated with this condition.
