WHAT IS A JAW REDUCTION WITH BOTOX ®?
Jaw reduction with Botox® is a unique treatment to help decrease the size of a wide jawline. Downsizing a wide jawline can help enhance harmony in your facial profile.
WHO MAY BE A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR JAW REDUCTION WITH BOTOX®?
One of the biggest determinants of whether you may be a good candidate for jaw reduction with Botox®is the thickness of the masseter muscle. You can determine this by biting down hard and noting your outer jawline. If the muscle should feel rock hard and if it appears enlarged when your teeth are clenched, then you may be a potential candidate for jaw reduction with Botox®.
WHAT CAUSES AN ENLARGED MASSETER MUSCLE?
There are several habits that can cause an enlarged masseter muscle, including:
- Extensive gum-chewing
- Chewing sturdy food items such as ice
- Grinding your teeth
HOW CAN BOTOX® DOWNSIZE THE JAW?
Upon injection, Botox® begins to weaken the masseter muscle. As the masseter muscle weakens over time, it will gradually decrease in size.
WHEN CAN I EXPECT TO SEE RESULTS FROM JAW REDUCTION WITH BOTOX®?
Botox® administration into the jaw is much different than utilizing it to correct age lines. It may take several weeks before your results become evident. However, results of a downsized masseter muscle can last up to a year and a half! Find out what results you may be able to expect during your consultation.
WHAT CAN I EXPECT IN TERMS OF RECOVERY?
Patients who undergo this exciting procedure will not need to set aside any downtime for recovery following a jaw reduction with Botox®. You may continue your schedule immediately following your treatment session!
