Jawline Reduction by Botox
We specialize in the art of non-surgical jawline slimming by masseter injection. The masseter muscles move the jaw and allow us to clench and chew with our mouths. These muscles may become cosmetically concerning in some women and men who find their jaw to be overly defined and prominent by hypertrophied masseter muscles resulting in a square or wide jawline. Causes include genetic predisposition (common among Chinese and Korean patients in particular) or through high activity of the jaw such as in the case of teeth grinding or clenching. Injection of Botox is a popular treatment option to soften the facial shape and jawline angle into more of a v-shape. Botox can do this by relaxing these jaw muscles and, with the resulting underuse, the muscles gradually lose mass and overall size. Patients experience a slimmer face and narrower jawline.
All injections are administered by certified medical staff and we use authentic Allergan brand Botox®. Treatment requires minimal downtime or recovery; it’s often called a lunchtime procedure. You’ll be able to go about your normal routine after you leave the clinic. Results last four-six months and many patients maintain the look by having the procedure done at a regular interval. If a more long-term effect is desired, this can be discussed during the consultation.
Botox® is a revolutionary non-surgical treatment using highly purified botulinum toxin protein refined from the bacterium, Clostridium botulinum. In the jawline reduction procedure, it is administered to relax contractions in the masseter muscles, effectively slimming the jawline.
