Botox® injection can improve an individual’s appearance in many ways, like reducing wrinkles and creases in the skin, but what many people do not know is that it can also be used for facial contouring*. To many people (especially women), an overly square or prominent jaw line is unwanted. Botox® jaw line contouring can be performed to make the jawline less prominent, and give it a softer appearance
Causes of Jawline
People who have an enlarged masseter often have a square jaw line. The masseter is a muscle located in the jaw, responsible for moving the jaw when people clench or chew.
Some personal habits, such as excessive chewing of hard foods, chewing gum, or grinding teeth can cause a noticeable enlargement of the masseter.
Traditional Jaw line Contouring:traditional forms of jawline contouring include a few invasive and complicated techniques such as shaving the bone of the jaw, removing the muscle or outer layer of the lower jaw, which are usually performed by a plastic surgeon. Today, there is a non-surgical alternative to improve your facial contour, which will allow you to resume normal activities with no downtime and without any complications! Plus, it is painless and costs less*.
Botox® Injection Jaw line Contouring:The use of Botox® injections for jaw line contouring has been scientifically proven to relax the masseter by blocking nerve impulses to the masseter (very much like treating wrinkles) so that the masseter will gradually shrink, narrowing the lower face, and softening the apperrance of jawline contour*. Noticeable results appear within 2-6 weeks after the treatment. The effects of Botox® injection jawline contouring can last a little longer than that of forehead cosmetic injections as the jawline volume takes longer to return. The slimming effects normally last from 4 to 8 months, though in some cases the results may even last up to one year, depending on the individual*.
