Botox For the Jawline Last

While many people focus on fine lines and wrinkles, the jawline is an often overlooked area of concern. Having a fuller, more defined jawline can uplift your face and improve facial balance and attractiveness. Unlike a chin implant, masseter Botox is non-invasive and requires no downtime. However, it’s important to take care not to rub the area or exercise to avoid spreading the toxin to other muscles. It’s also best to avoid getting a facial or face-down massage that day, and to stay away from cardio for about 12 hours after treatment.

The masseter muscles, found on each side of the jaw, are one of the main chewing muscle groups. When they are overactive due to teeth clenching or grinding, they can increase in size and lead to a wider, bulkier appearance of the jawline. A masseter Botox injection can help reduce the enlarged appearance of this muscle and slim the jawline, creating a more symmetrical and attractive shape for the lower half of the face.

BOTOX is well known as a wrinkle-smoothing injectable used to minimize the appearance of crow’s feet and forehead lines. However, it can also be used to diminish a squared or flabby jawline by limiting the activity of the masseter muscle. When performed by an experienced aesthetic specialist, masseter Botox can deliver a natural-looking and long-lasting slimmer jawline contour.

The results from a Botox Jawline injection will last between three to six months before they naturally wear off. During this time, patients should continue to schedule regular follow-up sessions in order to maintain their new jawline contour.

During the jaw Botox procedure, the practitioner will insert a needle into the jaw muscle through the skin in a very small area. The procedure should be relatively painless and fast, with only minor bruising or swelling at the injection site. Immediately after treatment, it’s important to avoid touching or rubbing the area in order to prevent spreading the botulinum toxin to other areas of the face.

A common side effect of masseter Botox is that it can affect muscles we don’t want it to, either by diffusing and moving to other muscles or by being injected in slightly the wrong plane, essentially missing the intended muscle. This can cause the jawline to look crooked or unnatural. It’s important to choose a reputable aesthetic expert to perform the procedure to avoid this side effect. In addition, it’s recommended to avoid any invasive beauty treatments for at least two weeks before and after treatment. In some cases, a masseter reduction with Botox may require multiple sessions to see the desired outcome. This can be especially true for a patient with very thick or tough jaw muscles. This is why it’s so important to work with an experienced aesthetic specialist who can personalize a masseter Botox treatment for your unique needs and goals.
