Dimpled Chin Treatment - Adelaide
Reverse the signs of ageing, correcting wrinkles and folds, by using anti-wrinkle injections.
Most people don’t notice that they have dimpled chin lines unless they look in the mirror while talking or eating. These divots and lines tend to form as we age as a result of fat loss in and around the chin area.
They can also appear on younger people as a result of an over-active mentalis muscle. As the chin is pulled up with the mentalis muscles, a dimpling effect is achieved. This is also known as peau d’orange or golf ball chin.
Frequently Asked Questions
Dr Targett can treat this area non-surgically with muscle relaxant injections also know as anti wrinkle injections (Term prohibited by TGA). The injections are given in two spots on the chin to relax this muscle with some amazing results.
Generally, the doctor will only use 4-5 units in total to treat a ‘dimpled chin’, and the effect can last 4 months.
The treatment is suitable for anyone that has a dimpled chin and wishes to improve their appearance. The treatment will last for up to four months. The treatment is not permanent.
Together with our experience Doctor, we decide upon the areas of your face that need to be treated. Then we book a treatment session.
Upon your arrival, there is a 10-15 minute consultation. During this time we will let you know of all the details of the procedure, the results you can expect, as well as any possible side-effects.
Depending on your budget we decide on the optimum number of units to inject. You are given a written information sheet and asked to sign an informed consent.
If necessary your skin is first numbed on the areas that are going to be treated.
The specialised doctor will then carefully place the anti-wrinkle injections in the areas that are causing the skin to wrinkle. The solution prevents the nerves from moving (contracting) the muscle, therefore smoothing the overlying skin.
The actual injection time is 2-3 minutes.
Following the treatment your recovery is immediate. You may experience some faint redness or needle-prick marks of the areas injected, that disappear quickly. Rarely, there is slight bruising that can last for a few days. Ladies can apply makeup immediately, thus masking the effects of the injections.
The full results are visible 7-14 days after the procedure. We ask you to come back 2 weeks following the procedure to make sure your results are optimal and that you are satisfied.
You should enjoy the results of anti-wrinkle injections for about 3-6 months. But with repeated treatments the recovery process is delayed (after about 2-3 years). Thus the more you come for anti-wrinkle injections, the longer the results will last.
