A heart-shaped face or narrow jawline is a desirable asset for a feminine face. In some cases, individuals may notice their jaw becomes wider, making the face appear round or square. The masseter muscles on the sides of the jaw can become pronounced, changing the shape of the face. Our team at Eden Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox® injections for masseter reduction at our medical clinic in Miami.
The masseter muscles are the large jaw muscles that provide the strength for chewing and clenching the jaw. Over time, these muscles can become larger, adding width to the jaw and lower face. This can change a youthful, feminine heart-shaped face to round or create a square jawline. To slim the face or narrow the jaw, reducing the size of the masseter muscle is the least invasive option. This can be accomplished with the help of Botox injections to relax the masseter muscles.
Face Slimming Botox Injections
Botox works by relaxing targeted muscles. The neurotoxin in Botox helps block muscle contractions. It will smooth wrinkles in dynamic lines, but it can also reduce muscle size in the jaw. Botox injections for masseter reduction help relax the jaw muscles, allowing them to shrink in size. Over the weeks after the injections, the jaw and face can become slimmer. In most cases, the results last, and multiple injection treatments are not needed. Additional injections can be performed every few months.
If you have a round or wide jawline due to larger masseter muscles, Botox injection treatment may be the solution.
