Pebble chin or an “orange peel” like look to the skin is a common concern as we’re faced with intrinsic aging and chronic sun damage.
Bumpy, Uneven, Orange Peel Skin
Pebble chin also know as orange peel chin is a condition caused by excessive flexing of the chin muscles. For those with this condition it appears that their chin is bumpy and uneven. This condition is easily treated with Botox injections which relaxes the chin muscles that cause the uneven appearance.
Bumpy or lumpy skin on the chin also appears as you age, this is called the ‘orange peel’ or as the French put it the ‘peau d’orange’ effect. As the chin loses volume, the muscles (mentalis muscle) around the chin which make up much of the soft tissue volume of the chin creates this rippled effect. A few drops of botox can be injected into the chin to produce a smoother chin contour.
