Botox Jawline Slimming : Some people have extremely strong, square jawlines and this is usually a result of an overactive masseter muscle. The appearance of a strong jawline can be deemed to be too masculine and aggressive looking. The masseter muscle is responsible for chewing our food and is one of the strongest muscles in the entire body.
In some cases, the masseter muscle is overactive either due to teeth grinding and clenching, scientifically known as bruxism. Like any other muscle in the body, when the masseter muscle is exercised excessively, it becomes stronger and therefore can alter the shape of the face, making the jawline appear wider and thicker.
There is a way to reduce the appearance of a wider and thicker jawline, by weakening the chewing muscle with botox. Botox Jawline Slimming injections can block the signals that initiate the jaw to contract and overtime, the muscle relaxes and eventually shrinks making the jawline appear slimmer and softer.
Because of the natural strength of this muscle, the Botox Jawline Slimming takes longer to work than botox treatments in other areas of the face. Results can be seen within 6 weeks, unlike areas such as the forehead which can take as little as a week or so to see the results. The results from Botox Jawline Slimming can last between 6 months to a year and a half.
The Botox Jawline Slimming treatment is suitable for anyone who either has an undesirable jawline shape – usually too square/strong or who suffers from strain/pain from buxism (see explanation above). Our patients who have received this treatment has said it has made their faces look friendlier, revealing a less-tensed appearance.
