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.
