4 Tips for Chin Wrinkles and Lines

I have medium deep lines on my chin that look like road maps. They are very noticeable as I have short hair. I'm 55 and in good shape otherwise. Thank you!

Wrinkles and crinkles on the chin annoy almost every woman over 50.  Here are some tips!

  1. Bumpy Skin on the Tip of the Chin.
    This is due to the loss of volume in the fat pad, bone and skin. And also from enlargement of the oil glands there. I call this bumpiness cobblestone chin, although it is not always known as that. I know from attending the Paris conference on aging skin that the French call it peau d’orange, or the skin of an orange.  These kinds of chin issues can be corrected with a little Botox/Dysport and some volume. Both Botox and Dysport are a type of botulinum type A used to relax the muscles that cause frown lines and other over active muscles of the face, like forehead lines and crows feet.   Juvederm or Restylane family are good for the volume I mentioned.
  2. Deep Crease Right Above the Chin.
    Usually related to volume loss, especially in the underlying bone and teeth that are shifting with age. Again, Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm or Restylane are good for correction.
  3. Lines that Slant Down under the Corners of the Mouth.
    This is due to the pulling down motion of certain muscle groups, as well as volume loss. Again, Botox/Dysport well done will correct and you may need volume also.
  4. Vertical Lines Heading Up into the Lips.
    Caused by repetitive pursing of the lips, the position of the jaw and teeth, some volume loss and sun damage on the lips.  Correct with a little Botox/Dysport, volume if needed and have your bite checked.

Hope the helps,   Dr. I

One of the best investments in your skin is your daily skincare. Why? Because you can prevent many problems with blotchy skin color, lack of glow, texture, some types of acne, and fine lines with good skincare products. You can also correct some of these problems with effective skincare products. Great skincare is often more expensive because quality ingredients are expensive. Some companies spend on research/development which benefits all of us and adds to the cost. Are they worth it? In general - yes! I have handpicked some of what I consider to be the best skin care products, and offer them for sale on SkinTour's shop. This is based on my team and I's testing and research at our clinic. Many of the products are in my own regimen. What could be better than using skin care products a dermatologist uses?!
