Its been a few days since I had my first botox injections.
The procedure was very simple. The doctor or nurse will get you to clench your teeth so they can mark out your masseter muscles with a pencil. Then I got 4 injections on each side. There was little pain, just a prick when the needle touches your skin and thats it. I was able to go about my business immediately afterwards.
Its been a few days and there has been no change to my jaw as yet, but I was told it would be several weeks. In the meantime, I am taking pictures every week to catalogue progress. I am due for a follow-up session in 2 weeks where, depending on what the doctor thinks, I may or may not get further injections (this would be free of charge)
Will update this review as often as I can and post pics too
So this is 16 days after my botox injections. As...

There's a definate softening of the jaw which you can see in my pictures (1st picture on the left is one of me before injections, middle picture is just over a month later and after a second round of injections, picture on right is from today)
Was it worth it? For me, I would have to say........not really!! There is softening but no noticeable reduction in the angular nature of my jaw. If this was something that cost £100 I would consider, but for £350, the results are not worth it.
My advice would be; if you acvtually have bruxism, where you grind your teeth, then this procedure may have more dramatic results (bruxism cuases enlargening of the chewing muscles in cheeks which could create a sqaure jaw). But for anyone who just simply wants to reduce their jaw, botox would have minimal effect as I guess the 'squareness' is just your genes and the underlying shape of your bones that make up your jaw. I guess I have to just understand that my sqaure jaw comes from my genes and, save having major surgery on my face, which I am NOT willing ever to do, then I have to get used to it.
Hope this blogs helps someone in making decisions :-)
