Botox in the chin. Relaxing the chin by applying botulinum toxin (Botox).
Chin botox is used in patients who involuntarily wrinkle their chin at rest or during conversation. In these cases, small holes resembling orange peel are observed on the skin. This is usually only noticed after it has been demonstrated and shown by a doctor.
The hyperactivity of m. mentalis leads to folding of the skin in the same area (like an orange peel) and to the formation of a deep fold in the area between the lower lip and chin (so-called mental crease). Relaxation of this muscle with botulinum toxin leads to the smoothing of these wrinkles. This procedure could increase the longitudinal size of the face in search of the ideal proportions.
For better results, it can also be used with hyaluronic filler in the same area. Combining the two procedures prolongs the duration of the effect of each.

How is the procedure for injecting botulinum toxin into the chin done
The skin is pre-cleansed. Your doctor will make you lift up and bite your lower lip. In this way he will be able to estimate the strength and projection of m. mentalis. Depending on the shape of the latter, 1 or 2 prickings are performed with a very fine needle. Anesthesia is not necessary, if necessary, the area can be pre-smeared with lidocaine cream. No bruising or swelling occurs. You can return to your daily tasks. The procedure takes about 10-20 minutes and the duration of the effect is between 4 and 8 months.
On the day after the procedure, do not exercise or drink alcohol. Do not clean the face with disinfectants and products that may contain alcohol or alcohol. You will not have bruises and swelling, which allows you to immediately return to your daily duties. Avoid saunas, steam baths and other heat treatments for the next few days. The effect will begin to appear on day 3-4, when you will see the smoothing of wrinkles in the chin area and its slight elongation. Follow-up of the results of the procedure is done every 10-14 days. If there is still movement in the area and correction is needed, it is done at the expense of the clinic.

Review of Dr. Stavrov, aesthetic dermatologist in Sofia
Facial wrinkles in the chin area are best smoothed with the help of botulinum toxin. It relaxes the muscle, which relaxes and tightens the overlying skin. This also increases the length of the chin. The procedure can be combined with placing hyaluronic acid fillers in the same area, which leads to more expressive and lasting results.Dr. Konstantin Stavrov, co-owner of the clinic Dr. Stavrov Aesthetics in Sofia
