Orange Peel Skin

Conditions and Treatment

 

 

Dealing with lip wrinkles can be stressful, especially when you’re hoping to maintain a youthful appearance. There are a few potential methods for treating these wrinkles, along with some tips which could help you partially prevent them as you age.

What is orange peel chin?

Referred to as “peau d’orange” or orange peel skin, the chin is prone to tension that can cause scattered dimpling. By relaxing the mentalis muscles, Botox helps achieve a smoother appearance.

What Causes Orange Peel Skin?

The appearance of an orange peel chin is the result of frequent and excessive flexing of the chin muscles, specifically the mentalis muscles, which leads to a bumpy and uneven chin.

Dimpling and wrinkling in the chin can be a natural part of the aging process for our face. As we age, there is a loss of volume in the chin, and when the muscles move, it creates a pebbling effect similar to an orange peel. Sun damage also plays a role, and the more sun damage experienced in youth, the higher the likelihood of developing orange peel skin later in life.

The condition can be effectively addressed through the use of Botulinum Toxin A injections, a neurotoxin that works by relaxing the chin muscles responsible for the uneven and bumpy appearance.

In cases where the shape of the chin has also changed, a combination of botulinum toxin injections and dermal fillers can be employed. Dermal fillers can be administered to diminish the visibility of lines or replenish lost volume in specific areas over time. This approach helps restore a smoother, fuller, and more youthful contour to the lower face.

Consistent facial treatments and a suitable skincare routine are essential for maintaining the results achieved through these procedures.
