Sessions of Jaw Slimming Botox

The jawline is an essential part of the face, but sometimes its shape can be a concern for some patients. The masseter muscle (which is responsible for chewing) can become overly developed or hypertrophic, resulting in an overly square or wide-looking jawline. This can be especially undesirable for women, who often prefer a more feminine and rounded appearance. Non surgical masseter slimming botox injections can help reduce the size of this muscle, thereby giving the patient a more chiseled and narrower jawline.

Botox works by attaching itself to nerve endings. Once it does this, the neurotransmitter that triggers muscle contractions – acetylcholine – can’t be released. Consequently, the muscle can no longer contract, which softens and Jaw slimming botox. The treatment is extremely safe and painless, unless the patient has a very low pain tolerance. During the procedure, the medical practitioner disinfects the injection area with rubbing alcohol and applies a numbing cream to the area if needed. Then, they will inject the Botox in small amounts into each side of the lower jawline. This typically only takes a few minutes and requires no downtime, making it a quick and convenient treatment.

There are a few factors that will impact how many units of Botox are required to achieve desired results. These include the facial muscles’ size and strength, skin thickness and tone, and previous botox or dermal filler treatments. Larger or stronger muscles will require more Botox to relax them. Additionally, if you’ve had other facial treatments before, the injector may have a better understanding of how much Botox is necessary to achieve the results you want.

How Many Sessions of Jaw Slimming Botox Are Typically Needed?

For example, forehead lines – the long, horizontal creases that can crease your forehead – usually require 8 to 20 units. Crow’s feet – the small wrinkles in the corners of your eyes – can be treated with 9 to 14 units. Bunny lines – the small dimples that appear on your chin – can be reduced with 4 to 15 units of Botox.

The jawline-slimming effects of Botox typically emerge 2-4 weeks after the treatment. The results will continue to build as the masseter muscle becomes more relaxed, reducing its prominence and thereby creating a slimmer jawline. The effects are usually maintained for up to six months after multiple treatments.

One of the key advantages of jaw slimming Botox is its non-permanent nature. Unlike surgical interventions such as jaw reduction surgery, which involve permanent alterations to the bone structure, Botox injections offer a reversible solution with results that typically last between 3 to 6 months. This temporary effect allows patients to assess the outcome and decide whether they wish to maintain or adjust their jawline contour over time.

As a non-invasive treatment with no downtime, jawline slimming botox is an excellent alternative to plastic surgery, which can be more expensive and has longer recovery times. It can also be paired with dermal fillers for a more holistic approach to contouring the face. For the best results, Dr. Green recommends scheduling touch-up appointments 2-3 times a year to maintain the benefits of the treatment. Contact us to schedule a consultation today!
