Botox and Dysport for jaw slimming
The injection technique does vary by physical exam and the goals of the treatment. Facial contouring goals may change the injection sites themselves to affect different portions of the masseter as well as the dose. The strength of the masseters can be felt by palpation and also helps me to determine dosing. In general, I start with 15- 25 units of Botox (OR 50-75 units of Dysport) per side for most patients. If they have very strong masseters, then I may increase the dose, but more commonly ask them to return in three weeks for a touch up. Once you get the desired result, I let patients know that future treatments may require less to maintain the look or the jaw clenching symptoms, especially if they get treated as soon as they notice the symptoms return. This can be as soon as three to four months, but in some cases, patients report that it lasts six months or more. I find it depends on the dose we use and how many times we have done the procedure as the duration may lengthen for patients that repeat it regularly.

It is a very simple office procedure which gives very nice results. A lot of my patients from Asia like this procedure since it slims the face For the best cosmetic results please consult a board certified dermatologist with experience with Botox.
Square Jaws Due To Masseter Muscle Hypertrophy Respond Well To Botox Injections
When appropriately injected into the masseter to thin it along the jawline, neuromodulators improve and feminize the appearance of region, without affecting the ability to chew. Treatment of the masseter muscles is not one of the more common uses of neuromodulators, like treating the scowl lines, so consultation with a board certified aesthetic physician with extensive experience in this area would be prudent.

Botox injection can soften the jaw line and give a more feminine look.
Dear writer, Botox injection can soften the jaw line and give a more feminine look. Provided there is true hypertrophy (excess development) of the jaw muscles (masseter), Botox injection is a relatively simple procedure that will provide the desired look with often times just one treatment session, providing results that will last for several months.
