Botox for Jaw Line Reduction and Facial Slimming
Dr. Tsai uses Botox injections as a non-invasive treatment for facial slimming and contouring of angular jaw lines most commonly found in Asian ethnicities. Using Botox to narrow the jaw line is an effective non-surgical alternative to surgical jaw reduction. By relaxing the masseter muscles, Botox can effectively contour the lower part of your face resulting in a narrower jaw line and a more pleasing facial shape.
Am I a good candidate for this procedure?
You may be a good candidate for facial slimming with Botox if the muscles along your jaw line appear enlarged when you clench your teeth.
When will I see a difference?
Most of our patients begin to notice a difference around two weeks after the Botox treatment. In about 6-8 weeks, you will notice a more significant reduction in your jaw line that will last for about 6 months depending on the strength of your masseter muscles. The results of your Botox treatment for jaw line reduction and facial slimming will last longer each time you have the procedure performed. Because you are weakening the muscle along your jaw line, you will see improved results as you continue your treatments.
