Botox® Jaw Reduction
Dreaming of having a V shaped face?
Desiring to slim your face but dreading a surgery?
Dream no more. Our non-surgical jaw reduction technique can help you accomplish that right now without having to go under the knives.
Excessive chewing or teeth grinding can result in overdeveloped muscles in the jawline. This is known as masseter hypertrophy or more commonly, square jaw. Wide jaw that creates a squarish looking face is a common cosmetic concern. This may be desirable in men, but most women consider this to be rather masculine.
We can fix that easily with no surgery involved, by using Botox®.
How is it done?
Botox® can be directly injected into the muscles in the jawline. This helps relax the muscles, effectively shrink the jawline and give you a slim, feminine jaw. Dermal filler can then be placed in the chin to give you an overall desired V shaped face.
How does it work?
Botox® weakens the jawline muscles over the time, therefore a reduction in the overall size. By shrinking the muscle at the point of attachment to the bone, the bones can also shrink over time giving long lasting slimmed jaw effect. At the same time, it does not compromise the function of the muscles and the bones.
Is it painful?
Our non-surgical jaw reduction technique emphasizes on optimal effect with minimal discomfort. A numbing cream will be applied at the injection site before the procedure. About 2-5 injections are needed on each side of the jaw. If chin filler is required, about 1-2 injections will be given at the chin.
Downtime is minimal with our jaw reduction technique. You can come in to have it done during lunch time and go back to work immediately after the procedure with minimal bruising or swelling. In the worst case scenario, you would probably see a couple of needle marks which will disappear quickly. Your colleagues will not even notice that you have had anything done to your face!
How long does it take to see the effect?
You may start seeing the jaw slimming effect in about 2-8 weeks after the procedure. Follow up is usually arranged in about 4 weeks time. Just remember to take some selfies to see the wonderful change!
It is generally very safe. You may experience a dull feeling at your jaw when you are chewing, but this is only temporary and it will go away after a while. There may be mild bruising or swelling right after the procedure which will disappear very quickly.
Will I have problems chewing my food?
Most patients do not have this problem. However, your jaw may feel a little tired after chewing for a while but this is only temporary and will go away over time.
I’m afraid that this procedure will make my face look “fake”.
Although non-surgical jaw reduction can effectively slim your jaw, it does not alter your facial shape dramatically, unlike a plastic surgery. The facial slimming effect is subtle overtime, making it look as though you have lost some weight and some fat around your face and neck. The effect is very natural. It will never look like you have had some work done to your face.
Our non-surgical jaw reduction technique focuses on optimal effect with minimal discomfort. If you desire to have a natural looking V shaped face, do not hesitate to contact us or visit us to find out more.
