Chin

 Wrinkles

Not many of us notice that we may have dimpling of the chin whenever we pucker our lips.  Some have quite a prominent pucker of the chin.  This is caused by an overactive set of muscles in the chin. The muscles can be controlled by careful placement of Neurotoxin .  The results are seen within days, and can last for months.  Come in for a consultation with Dr. Searles to see what these products can do for you.

Pigmentation

Our chin will often show signs of sun damage. Pigmentation such as brown spots (lentigos), redness, or broken blood vessels (telangiectasias) are commonly found on the skin of our chin and are a bother to many people. Treating this extra pigmentation can create a clearer complexion and decrease the need to wear makeup. Both men and women will benefit from treatments that address pigmentation, redness, or vessels. Some of the treatments are done with little to no downtime (IPL), while others may give stronger results in fewer treatments, but will require some downtime (Cutera Pearl). Come in for a consultation to see which treatments are right for you and your skin.

Scarring

The chin can show damage from either the effects of acne as a teenager, or by injuries.  The smooth surface can easily show the scars, which cannot be easily hidden by makeup.  Treating this area can smooth out the chin surface and create a clearer appearance.  Some of the treatments have little or no downtime (Soft tissue fillers Cutera Laser Genesis, or IPL), while others are more deeply applied, which will require some downtime (Cutera Pearl).  Dr. Searles will be able to advise you on what the best treatment would be for your particular problem.
