Chin dimpling injections
Smooth pebbled chin skin and put a stop to chin-ulite with chin dimpling injections. This effective treatment uses anti-wrinkle injections to relax your mentalis chin muscle. By treating your cobblestone chin, it rejuvenates your appearance, and gives your chin a softer contour.
How it works
Bothered by chin dimples and pebbled skin, also known as ‘chin-ulite’? Chin dimpling injections are an effective way to smooth your chin skin.
They work for people naturally prone to a cobblestone chin, and for those who develop it with age. An overactive mentalis muscle causes chin skin pebbling by pulling on the skin. We relax this muscle with chin dimpling injections, which smooths your skin. It also lowers the position of your chin, for a softer facial aesthetic.
If you’re unsure if chin dimpling injections are right for you, the experienced team at Cosmetic Connection are here to help. Get in touch with your questions, or book in for a personalised treatment plan targeting your pebbled chin.

Chin dimples and pebbling (also known as ‘chin-ulite’ or ‘cobblestone chin’) are the irregularities found on your chin skin.
They are most commonly seen in people with a recessed chin, or those with age-related volume loss affecting the chin.
It is caused by an overactive mentalis chin muscle. This muscle pulls on the under surface of your chin skin, creating dimples.
We treat chin dimpling with anti-wrinkle injections. This relaxes the mentalis chin muscle, stopping it from pulling on your skin. This gives your chin a smoother appearance.
A cleft chin (also known as a bum chin) is a different concern, and needs to be treated with chin dermal fillers.
Chin dimpling injections are a treatment to smooth your chin skin. It uses anti-wrinkle injections to relax your mentalis chin muscles. This prevents the muscles pulling on the under surface of your chin skin, giving a smoother appearance.
Chin dimpling injections are a simple treatment.
After your consultation, we clean and mark your chin skin.
Using tiny needles, we carefully place anti-wrinkle product to your mentalis chin muscles.

Chin dimpling injections have almost no discomfort. Tiny needles are used for the treatment, and we have strong numbing options to ensure a comfortable treatment.
Chin dimpling injections start working in 3-4 days. The final result is seen 14 days after your treatment.
Chin dimpling injections last 3-4 months on average.
You can increase the longevity by having consistent maintenance treatments.
Chin dimpling injections do not improve the appearance of a chin cleft/bum chin.
A chin cleft is generally caused by tethering of the skin to the underlying chin bone. To treat this, you will need chin dermal fillers.
Prepare for your chin dimpling injections with these steps:
- Cease all supplements 1 week before your treatment (unless taking for medical reasons)
- Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
- Attend your appointment without makeup
- Closely shave the planned treatment area the day before (where applicable)
After your chin dimpling injections there may be slight redness that settles in under an hour.
In 3-4 days, you’ll notice your chin skin become smoother. This will continue to improve, with the full effect seen 2 weeks after your treatment.

- Aged under 18
- Currently pregnant or breastfeeding
- Those with unrealistic expectations about what can be achieved with chin dimpling injections
What causes chin creases, clefts and dimpling?
Chin creasing, clefts and dimpling all have different causes.
Chin dimpling, pebbling or ‘chin-ulite’ is the cobblestone appearance of your chin. It is often seen when making facial expressions such as pouting your bottom lip. People with a recessed chin may have dimpling even when relaxed.
Chin dimpling is caused by a hyperactive mentalis chin muscle. This muscle attaches the chin skin to the underlying bone, and works to push your bottom lip upwards to meet your top lip.
Some people have a naturally hyperactive mentalis muscle, while others find that they develop chin dimples as they age.
Chin dimpling injections are an effective treatment that improves chin dimpling by relaxing the mentalis muscle.
A chin crease, also known as the mental crease, is the deep horizontal groove that runs across the chin. It is found between your lower lip and chin bulk.
The mental crease if often seen in those with a hyperactive mentalis muscle. This muscle draws the lower chin bulk towards the lip, causing a crease. Some people also have underlying genetic tethering of the skin that accentuates the chin crease, even from a young age.
For a deep chin crease, we may need to treat it with wrinkle filler.
A chin cleft, also known as a bum chin, is the hollow area that sits in the middle of the chin at the lower border.
A chin cleft is related to the underlying bone structure, and may also be accentuated by fibrous tethering between the chin bone and the overlying skin.
Chin filler is the most effective treatment to improve the appearance of a chin cleft.
