Botox Can Help The Jawline, Consider Masseter Treatment and Filler on the Jaw
? Botox for jawline and neck
It is important that the off-label treatment be discussed and that it be consented to formally in the physicians consent form.
There are many ways to rejuvenate and slenderize the chin, jowls, neck. Some experienced and skilled dermatologists and plastic surgeons do offer Botox treatments for the jawline and neck, and it is sometimes referred to as the Nefertiti Lift. Botox may also be injected lower in the platysma muscle on the neck to reduce wrinkles. However, Botox only lasts 3-4 mths.
If you have residual fat under the chin or jowls, you may consider Lipodissolve. Another option, for saggy skin of the neck and chin, would be to have skin tightening with either Ulthera, Radiofrequency (Invasix, EMatrix) or with Gentle Yag Laser (Fotona 1064nm). Despite what the manufacterers might claim for these treatments being "one-time only" most of them, in my opinion, need multiple treatments. At our office we prefer the Gentle Yag because it is the least painful, the fastest, and least down-time.
Anyway, good luck

A combination of Botox and Thermage would yield the best result for you. Injecting Botox into the masseter muscle can help slim your face. Thermage would tighten it up as well and help treat the slight double chin and rejuvenate your jawline. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with both procedures for the best results.

Neuromodulators (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) Can Be Used To Improve The Jawline & Neck
More recently, it has become fashionable, particularly among individuals of Asian background wishing to soften the broadness or sqaureness of the lowermost portion of the cheeks, to have the masseter (chewing) muscle injected with Botox. All of these techniques are sophisticated uses of neuromodulators and are best left in the hands of board certified core aesthetic physicians with extensive experience in their use within the lower face and neck.
