Botox for Square Jaw
Many patients visit our office with the desire for a more feminine, V-shaped jawline. If you feel that the shape of your face is too wide or square at the jaw, our popular Botox jaw reshaping procedure might be right for you. Gaining in popularity, Botox for the jawline is ideal for individuals who would like to reduce the size of their jaws or correct asymmetrical jaw muscles.
Dr. Jane is one of Bay Area’s top cosmetic dermatologists. She uses Botox to relax and temporarily weaken the masseter muscles, resulting in a slimmer, more appealing lower face shape. A non-surgical jawline reduction in our offices is designed to add harmonious balance to the face without the dangers of surgery. She combines a dermal filler for even better recontouring.
While a strong, square jawline can be distinctly masculine and desirable in 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. In some patients, the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle, is enlarged from grinding and clenching the teeth, creating extra facial width. Botox selectively weakens this muscle over time leading to attractive change in facial shape without surgery or downtime. Ask the provider if this procedure may be right for you.
.Botox injections are commonly associated with treating deep wrinkles, creases, and fine lines that may occur on the upper face as we age. However, Botox injections have also been incorporated into a new jaw reduction treatment, with patients reporting a vastly improved appearance that softens strong jawlines, resulting in a more feminine appearance. This treatment has become most common among certain groups of Asians and also people with large jaw muscles (masseter muscle) from teeth grinding.

Benefits of Botox Jaw Slimming
There are many benefits to Botox jaw reduction, with the primary one consisting of its non-invasive nature. Traditional jaw reduction surgery requires removal of bone and is associated with potentially significant complications. It is also more painful and has a much longer recovery period. Botox jaw reduction, on the other hand, is quick, virtually painless, and can be done within the span of a lunch hour.
Botox jaw reduction makes it possible for patients to eat right after the treatment without experiencing any pain. Patients of Dr. Jane will expect to receive 20 to 40 unit each side to have a smaller lower face. She combines Kybella and/or Ultherapy for the patients who look for slimmer face. Most of patients may need a second treatment at 6 months to 1 year to maintain their results. The need for any future maintenance treatments depends on each individual case.

It involves virtually painless injections of Botox directly into the masseter muscle located near the back of the jaw. The Botox slowly and gently reduce the size of the masseter muscle, which in turn reduces the appearance of a strong and square jawline.
