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...

So this is 16 days after my botox injections. As you can see, not much change! I have been told however it is several weeks before I would see a change. I have a top-up appointment in 5 days time where I expect I will get more botox. The clinic have a policy of giving free top-ups if there has been in improvement. So will post more pics in a couple of weeks time - here's hoping I have more to tell you regarding an actual change as, right now, there is unfortunately no discernable difference between my before and after pic :-(

OK so its nows been 35 days since my very 1st botox jabs to reduce my jawline.. I originally had 32 units, 16 on each side. And then 14 days ago I had 'top up' injections with 16 untis, 8 on each side. As you can see on my latest pic, there has been some reduction on both sides. Not a huge amount though. I've been told that optimum results are in 8 weeks, so will update you in 3 weeks time

46 days since 1st botox injections........

So this will be my last update regarding my botox injections to reduce my square jaw, and I've added my final picture.
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 :-)
