Botox and masseter reduction

Masseter reduction is a very common treatment and considering where you live, I'd either get a referral or seek out a provider that has a well-known and respected practice.

Botox Jaw Reduction Very Effective

I've done a number of cases in which I inject botox into the jawline to taper it and make the jaw a bit more defined.  I actually don't think the technique is very difficult, but you have to make sure the patient's anatomy is conducive to benefiting from the procedure.  Then it's a matter of finding the right dose for a patient. I usually start with conservative doses and see how someone responds.  You can always add more at a follow up visit, but you can't take botox away.
