I went in to see Dr. Asaria 1 year ago to make some subtle changes with filler to refine my features. I asked about nose and chin filler, which he agreed would help me achieve the outcomes I was looking for. When I mentioned that one of the outcomes I was looking for was to make my face shape appear slimmer, he suggested botox to my masseters. I had no idea botox could be administered to the masseters but after he explained how it inhibits muscle activity and therefore over time, can have a slimming effect to the jawline, I decided to go for it. And I'm so happy I did, and so grateful to Dr. Asaria for listening to my concerns and addressing them by suggesting this procedure. My first treatment was 30 units of botox on each side ($600), then 4 months later he decreased the units to 25 on each side ($500). Starting on the 3rd treatment, we decreased the dosage to 20 units to each side ($400) and I will continue with this dosage every 4 months for as long as I wish to maintain this look. It is expensive but worth every penny for me. I have included a before and after photo, taken 1 year apart. The first photo was taken right after I had 1 syringe of Juvederm filler in my nose and chin, as well as the botox. The slimming effect isn't apparent until at least 1 to 2 months after the first treatment, so you have to be patient. For me, the maximum effect didn't happen until after my 3rd treatment. It was a very gradual change. My after photo is 1 year and 4 treatments later. I still have the same nose and chin fillers in this photo so nothing else has changed, except for the fact that I'm wearing makeup in my before and none in the after. I hope this reveiw helps!

I am so grateful to Dr. Asaria for recommending the procedure to me. Short of a drastic bone countouring surgery, I thought my boxy face was something I would have to live with forever. If only I had known sooner that there was a completely non-invasive solution as an answer my wishes! Thank you Dr. Asaria.
