Desiring to slim your face and have a V shaped face? This non surgical jaw reduction procedure will help you accomplish that. If you have a face shape that looks too big at the jaws, it is possible that you have big masseter muscles that is causing your face to look rounder, bigger or too square. You can slim the jawline with a simple injection of Botox (or other neuromodulators) on each side of the jaw. This is face sliming procedure is popularly known as the non surgical square jaw reduction procedure, or the Botox square jaw reduction procedure.
The masseters are two bulky muscles on each side of the angle of your jaw. They serve as muscles of mastication, which means they help you chew. There are two other muscle groups that also perform this function, namely the temporalis muscles and the pterygoid muscles.
Sometimes, big jaws are caused by habitual or subconscious grinding of teeth. With excessive chewing or grinding (in a condition known as bruxism), the masseters at the jawline can grow to quite a size (causing the jaws to look square), much like how body builders grow their abs and pects by training them. Relaxing the muscles by injecting Botox is effective in shrinking the jawline, thereby reducing the square jaw appearance.
How is it done?
Botox is injected into the masseters on each side of the face and spread out at multiple points within the muscle to produce jaw reduction results. With Dr. Osman Bashir’s proprietary 1-point botox jaw reduction technique, it only takes one single injection per side of jaw and is completed in under 5 minutes.
