Botox® is commonly used to treat a condition known as peau d’orange (French for skin of the orange). This a wrinkling of the chin caused by over contraction of the muscles of the upper neck and chin in a patient with a short chin. A chin implant can correct the size of the chin but will not eliminate these wrinkles of the chin. In this patient, the muscles of the upper neck under the chin (submental region) even tightened.
* Each patient is unique and individual results may vary.
