Small Chin & Chin Dimpling

The shape of your chin depends on several factors including genetics, development and the rest of your facial features. A small chin is generally described as one that appears diminutive compared to the rest of the face and in many cases is also receded. Chin dimpling, on the other hand, is the appearance of a lump of tissue that looks like a “button” or dimple on the front of the chin.

WHAT IS A SMALL CHIN OR CHIN DIMPLING?

The shape of your chin depends on several factors including genetics, development and the rest of your facial features. A small chin is generally described as one that appears diminutive compared to the rest of the face and in many cases is also receded. Chin dimpling, on the other hand, is the appearance of a lump of tissue that looks like a “button” or dimple on the front of the chin. This is usually always visible but accentuated by moving the chin. People usually seek chin dimpling treatment and small chin correction for cosmetic reasons. However, a small chin maybe associated with dental problems.

WHAT CAUSES A SMALL CHIN OR CHIN DIMPLING?

A small chin maybe caused by the reduced size of the chin bones, a small amount of fat under the skin of the chin or small chin muscles. A dimpled chin is usually caused by overactivity of the chin muscles. The most common reason for having a small chin or chin dimpling is genetics. That is, you’ve inherited this from your family. Other factors which can exacerbate the appearance of a small or dimpled chin include loss of skin thickness and elasticity due to ageing and loss of facial volume.

WHAT IS CHIN ENHANCEMENT, AUGMENTATION & RESHAPING?

Chin enhancement is any procedure used to alter the shape of the chin in order to enlarge, reduce or in anyway enhance its appearance. There are many methods for chin enhancement ranging from non-invasive treatments like dermal fillers to permanent chin implants or bone surgery.

HOW TO TREAT SMALL CHIN SIZE OR CHIN DIMPLING NATURALLY

Ther are a number of non-surgical chin enhancement treatments. These are:

You can also help boost the results of Botox and dermal fillers with professional skin treatments like laser therapy, microneedling and chemical peels. Additionally, active skincare like exfoliating acids, Vitamin C or retinoids can help smooth the texture of your skin and tighten it. These treatments help smooth out wrinkles and plump up ageing skin in order to complement the results of chin sculpting and contouring.
