Do you have unexplained dimples or lines or on your chin? You may have pebble chin!
What’s Pebble Chin?
A pebble chin is a nickname that has been given to bumpiness and uneven skin texture on the chin. When you flex your chin muscles you may see little dimples where we have lost volume. Because of the tiny divots in the skin this has become to be known as pebble lines, Orange peel or even cobblestone lines!
What Causes Pebble Chin?
These chin wrinkles are actually caused by a loss of collagen as well as excessive flexing of the chin muscles! As we age we naturally lose collagen and elastin in our skin. Depending on our lifestyle this typically starts in our 20’s – however if we are excessively using these muscles then these pebble lines can start even earlier!
You may think you never use your chin muscles, however these muscles are used when we clench our jaws. Some people involuntarily contract these muscles in the chin – this constant movement is what causes the wrinkles to appear.
How Can I Fix My Pebble Chin?
The quickest and easiest way to treat ‘pebble chin’ is with a small amount of botox. Though traditionally Botox would be more popular for the upper face and Dermal Filler used for the lower face there are some concerns it is particularly useful for like smokers lines. Other skin care treatments like micro needling and a good skin care routine will also help your skin texture.
