Have you noticed that your chin has taken on the appearance and texture of orange peel? Are you tired of the dimpling and wrinkling in your chin that has developed as part of the natural aging process? Both women and men are turning to non-invasive facial aesthetics treatments such as Chin Botox, which can dramatically reduce this appearance of wrinkling. Let’s examine how this treatment works, who should get chin Botox and how to prepare for your first appointment.
What is chin Botox and how does it work?
The wrinkles in your chin, otherwise known as dynamic rhytids, take shape according to the movement of the muscles under your skin. Your muscles, while talking and chewing, make the same movements over a long period of time. Eventually these dynamic rhytids form on your skin.
You should always choose a doctor licensed in aesthetic medicine for your treatments. When your doctor injects your muscle tissue with Botox, it blocks cell receptors, forcing the muscle to relax and smoothing the wrinkled, dimpled skin on your chin.
Who should get chin Botox?
Chin Botox is a great option for those who are looking for a non-invasive correction to the dimpled appearance of their chin. Botox is a temporary treatment, but is highly effective.
Botox is not recommended for anyone under 18 or women who are pregnant or nursing. Of course, those rare individuals who are allergic to Botox or have certain chronic medical issues are not candidates for this treatment.
Three Tips to Prepare for your Treatment
Have you decided to go ahead and book your chin Botox treatment? There are a few things to remember before you go.
- First of all, make sure your licensed provider knows your medical history. It’s important that they know your health history to be sure you are a candidate for the treatment.
- Avoid drinking wine for one week before your treatment. The last thing you want is facial bruising after your treatment, and wine (especially red wine) can cause this inconvenient after-effect.
- Avoid anti-inflammatory medications one week before your treatment. Again, these kinds of medications can cause facial bruising after a Botox treatment. If you are under a specific kind of medical treatment that requires the use of anti-inflammatories, speak to your doctor before you go for your treatment.
