The chin crease develops over time as a result of repeated contraction of the mentalis muscle. It is generally more prominent in men than women as men have a stronger chin muscle. The chin crease can be treated using dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections and can give results lasting up to 18 months.
This is a horizontal groove between the chin and the area below the bottom lips.
Treatment of this are can include injection of dermal filler into the groove to soften the crease, or injection of wrinkle relaxant into the Mentalis (chin) muscles.
HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE AND WHAT HAPPENS ON THE DAY OF THE APPOINTMENT?
This in clinic treatment takes less than an hour to perform. First, our cosmetic nurse or cosmetic doctor will carry out a full facial and medical assessment and your concerns will be discussed. A topical anaesthetic cream may be applied, injections of dermal filler or wrinkle relaxers are delivered through a thin needle into specified areas in the chin. Patients can leave our clinic immediately after receiving the injections. There are no bandages needed, and patients can return to work immediately, making this a popular “lunchtime” rejuvenation treatment.

Results are immediate. Patients might experience some slight swelling or redness, but this disappears in a day or two.
