Dimpled Chin Lines
Most people don’t notice that they have dimpled chin lines unless they look in the mirror while talking or eating. These divots and lines tend to form as we age as a result of fat loss in and around the chin area.
They can also appear on younger people as a result of an overactive mentalis muscle. As the chin is pulled up with the mentalis muscles, a dimpling effect is achieved. This is also known as peau d’orange or golf ball chin.
Most common causes of dimpled chin lines include:
- The increased contracting of the muscle can cause wrinkles and creases to appear in the chin
- Acne can also be a cause of chin dimples
- Natural aging
- Fat loss in and around the chin area
- Can be passed on genetically according to researchers
