A well-defined jawline is a hallmark of a strong and attractive facial structure. However, many people struggle with a heavy or overdeveloped jaw, which can detract from their appearance and cause discomfort. Our non-surgical facial/jawline slimming is a minimally invasive treatment that reduces the appearance of a wide, square jawline. It involves injections into your jaw muscles (masseters) to relax them, thereby creating a slimmer, softer jawline.
What is Botox?
Botox is a cosmetic treatment that uses small injections of botulinum toxin to temporarily paralyze the muscles. This safe and effective treatment has been used for over 20 years to smooth wrinkles and improve the appearance of fine lines, crow’s feet, and other signs of aging. Botox can also be used to slim the jaw, a treatment that has become increasingly popular in recent years.
The jaw muscles, also known as the masseter muscles, can become overdeveloped due to a variety of factors, including genetics, clenching and grinding teeth, and certain types of chewing. Over time, these muscles can become bulky and create a square, masculine jawline. Botox works by weakening the masseter muscles, reducing their size and creating a slimmer, more feminine jawline.
What is the Procedure Like?
Jaw slimming with Botox is a quick and easy procedure that can be performed in as little as 15-30 minutes. Botox is injected directly into the masseter muscles using a tiny needle. The procedure is relatively painless, and you may feel only a slight discomfort. The results of Botox jaw slimming typically take 3-5 days to become visible and last for 3-6 months.
