The chin crease (also known at the mental 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.
How to reduce the appearance of a chin crease
We can easily reduce the chin crease (also known as the mental crease) using a combination of dermal filler and anti-wrinkle injections. Dermal fillers are a gelatinous product which is injected under the skin to lift the skin up and reduce the appearance of the chin crease.
Anti-wrinkle injections relax the chin muscle (the one responsible for pulling the chin up) and thereby reduce the depth of the chin crease over time.
How much does chin crease treatment cost at Cityskin Melbourne?
You are likely to use 1ml or more of dermal filler to soften the chin crease. We would also use approximately 2 – 4 units of anti-wrinkle injections at a cost of $24 – $48 to the chin muscle (mentalis muscle) to relax this at the same time.
How long does chin crease filler last?
Chin crease dermal fillers last approximately 12 months provided a firmer dermal filler is placed in the crease.
What are the risks of treating the chin crease with dermal filler?
The chin crease is one of the safer areas to treat with dermal filler as it is less vascular than other areas of the face. There is a small chance of a bruise after treatment with dermal fillers. Your practitioner will discuss the risks and benefits of treatment on the day to ensure that you are fully comfortable before proceeding.
