Botox Jawline Affect Facial Aging

In both men and women, a well-defined jawline is a desirable facial feature. It can make the cheekbones stand out more prominently, creating a beautiful V-shaped facial contour and a slim face shape. Unfortunately, not everyone has a naturally sculpted jawline. As we age, the fatty tissues of the face lose volume and shift downward, so features that were once round can become flat or square. This can also cause the skin to sag around the face and neck, leading to jowls or baggy spots. While we all know that neuromodulators like Botox are great at smoothing out wrinkles and fine lines, few people realize that they can also be used to sculpt the face and slim the jawline.

The oculoplastic surgeons of Eyesthetica are proud to offer this innovative use of the popular injectable treatment. In addition to its usual anti-aging effects, botulinum toxin type A can be injected into the large chewing muscles in the jaw to relax them and shrink them for a slimmer jawline. This can be particularly beneficial for those with a wide jawline, or who have experienced the masculinization of their jawline due to chronic jaw clenching or grinding.

How does it work? The botox for jawline injections are made by targeting the masseter muscle, which runs along your lower face and is responsible for chewing and teeth grinding. When the masseter muscle is relaxed, it will weaken and shrink, causing your face to become slimmer and more curved. This can help to feminize the jawline for women who have experienced a masculinizing of their face shape, and give both men and women a more chiseled look to the face and neck.

This is a non-invasive, minimally invasive procedure that is performed right in the office using local anesthesia. The patient will clench their jaw to pinpoint the muscle, and five injection points will be placed on each side of the face: 2 in front of the masseter, 1 behind the masseter, and one at the center of the jaw.

The results of jaw Botox will usually last 3 to 6 months, but with consistent follow-up injections, you can continue to see the masseter muscle weaken, shrink and slim over time, allowing your face to gradually change its shape and provide the chiseled appearance that you desire. This is a more natural alternative to surgery, and the results of jaw Botox will typically be much longer-lasting than those achieved by other treatments, such as rhinoplasty or liposuction.
