The movement of the mentalis muscle of the chin may occasionally give the skin this unwelcome appearance, reminding of an orange peel or of the surface of a strawberry. In very pronounced cases it is also often compared to a cobblestone relief.
In most cases, Botox® will suffice to sufficiently straighten the fine lines, but in severe cases the additional injection of fillers is advisable as Botox® alone might impact the facial expression and make it impossible to inject the lips.
However, a good result from Botox® only requires the patient to be patient.
This region is located between the lips and the chin, and a mental crease is frequently seen in connection with the above-mentioned strawberry chin.
The mental crease is either a distinct, deep groove or consists of a number of smaller, often irregular lines. Already in its mild form, this crease can greatly impact a person’s overall appearance.
A combined treatment with Botox® and fillers promises truly satisfactory results.
