Botox for Masseter(jawline) reduction
As a non-surgical, face-slimming treatment, Botox is injected into the masseter muscle on each side of the face at specific points. Typically, this includes 1-3 injections per side and is a very short procedure (less than 5 minutes). For most patients, results are noted between 2-4 weeks.
To better understand how Botox slims the face, consider how the size of muscles decreases as they are underused. To initiate this result, Botox is injected to relax the masseter muscle. As the muscle is not used, it loses its mass and the overall size reduces. For individuals that have "chubby cheeks," or are seeking a narrower, V shape to their face, Botox injections are a simple and safe, non-invasive solution.
