Find Clinics offering Dermal Fillers in London & UK »

A dimple is usually a naturally occurring facial feature, which involves the indentation of the skin and most often appears in the cheek or chin, although it can appear anywhere on the body. Dimples are often found on children or babies, and mostly people grow out of the condition as they reach adulthood. In some cases however, the feature remains. Not everyone is concerned by having a dimple, but others might feel they are unsightly and childish. Dimples can also occur under trauma, after certain accidents or operations. Traumatic dimples often disappear after a certain amount of time, but on occasion they can remain. Lastly, you may have a sacral dimple, which occurs at birth and usually form at the cleft between the buttocks. Usually a dimple is simply a natural skin feature, and nothing adverse or harmful, and does not require any treatment. However, you ought to consult with your practitioner on the cause and nature of you feature before considering any cosmetic procedure, so that any underlying cause can be identified and so the most appropriate form of cosmetic procedure can be designed for you by your aesthetic practitioner.

Fortunately there are treatments available to shape and alter the appearance of dimples. Dermal filler might be used alongside a treatment of Botox, or similar. This plumps up the appearance and smoothes the skin as well as partially immobilising the skin around the affected area to reduce the appearance of the dimple and create a better overall skin contour. Dermal filler can usually be undertaken under local anaesthetic and because it is a non-invasive procedure it carries little risk of side-effect or firther complication. A little redness and swelling might be expected in the few days after the treatment has been administered. T o make sure you receive the most appropriate treatment and best care it is important to have a full and comprehensive consultation with your aesthetic practitioner/surgeon.
