A deep horizontal groove can form across the chin forming what is also known as the ‘mental crease’. The usual factors such as dermal thinning, bony resorption, soft tissue loss and reduced elasticity are all contributory as well as dental changes. Overactive muscles in the chin can lead to dimpling as well as a prominent crease.
Treatment may best be approached with a combination of botox and dermal filler. Weakening the mentalis muscle reduces causative active movement and dermal fillers can be use to soften the crease.
