Dimples are an anatomical feature due to the zygomatic muscle, a facial muscle that connects the cheekbone to the corner of the lips and is activated especially when smiling. When this muscle is shorter than normal, when the person laughs, it creates a small hollow in the cheek.
In some countries, dimples are considered a sign of fertility and good luck. In England, for example, dimples are said to be the mark made by God’s fingerprint on the cheek of a newborn baby.
Beyond superstition, dimples bring an undeniable charm. Some people are lucky enough to inherit this particularity “in the genes”. For others, there is an intervention that makes it possible to create them artificially.
