The mentalis muscle, which together with the jaw bone forms the chin, can be hyperactive or too large, resulting in an appearance to the lower face that is less than ideal. For some patients, chronic spasm of the muscle makes the chin move in an uncontrollable fashion, resulting in short lines that mar the skin of the chin. In other folks, the mentalis muscle is too large, and produces an unusually large and protruding chin.
For these patients, and a number of others, Dr. Chow can administer Botox®, Dysport®, or Xeomin® to the chin. Results begin to appear in three to five days for most patients with muscle hyperactivity.
