While a strong, square jawline can be distinctly masculine and desirable in some male patients, many female patients are seeking softer more feminized shape to their face. Particularly in Asian females, changing the shape of the face from square to a more attractive oval shape can add a more gentle graceful appearance.
Jaw reduction surgery used to be the only option for many patients, however, patients had long recovery times, inconsistent and unnatural results. Now Botox has revolutionized facial reshaping. Botox allows for changing the shape of the face without a scalpel, pain, swelling and zero downtime.
Botox jaw reduction is a specialized technique to reduce the width of the jawline changing an overly square jawline to a more attractive oval or heart shaped face.In some patients, the the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle, is enlarged creating extra facial width. Botox selectively weakens this muscle over time leading to an overall reduction in the size of this muscle.
Botox can weaken the masseter muscle giving a softer angle at the jaw and a less square jaw. By blocking the action of selected muscles, very much like in treating wrinkles, we can cause the eventual atrophy (loss of muscle size) in those muscles. Except here we inject Botox into the bulk of the muscle. Patients generally notice softening of the masseter muscle at one week and softening of the jawline at around 6-8 weeks. Some researchers have noticed “permanent changes” to the jaw line in 2-3 treatments. However, it is advised that patients expect long term benefit but not permanent changes. Patients with underlying bruxism, clenching of the teeth, may never obtain permanent results due to the fact the muscle is strengthened.
Some personal habits can contribute to your enlarged jaw muscles – the masseter. Excessive chewing of hard items/food and chewing gum can lead to an enlarged masseter muscle. Bruxism, discussed later, can also enlarge the muscles for the same reason – excessive use which causes the muscle to hypertrophy.
