There are many ways to achieve slimmer face and well-defined jawline with surgical and non-surgical procedures. If you are looking for a non-surgical procedure that is safe and effective, you might want to consider Botulinum Injection Jaw Reduction. It is also known as “square jaw reduction” or “Botulinum Injection face slimming”. But am I a good candidate for Botulinum Injection for jaw reduction?
How does it work?
This procedure targets the muscle that’s located on the side of the jaw on both sides – one of the muscles involved in chewing. Masseter muscle gives volume and fullness to the sides of the jaw. By injecting Botox to relax the masseter/ jaw muscles, the large muscle will decrease and shrink down in size over time. It will work to slim down the jaw area and make the face appear slimmer.
Any possible side effects? Will it affect my smile?
This is a safe treatment if it’s done by an experienced and certified doctor.
The possible side effect is soreness and bruising after the injection. Those are the primary side effects and will usually subside after a few hours to a few days.
It can be riskier if it’s done by someone who lacks experience. It can affect your smile and the symmetry of your face. Hence, it is important to seek out a certified and skilled doctor.
