Jaw Line Contour Injections
For people who are not happy with the shape of their face, jawline contouring using BTX-A is a simple and effective way to reduce the jaw line and reshape the large or overly developed, square looking masseter (chewing muscle). In the past, jaw reduction surgery was the only option to achieve a more oval-shape face. Today, however, Btx-A or Botox® is a more delicate, safe, and painless procedure to obtain the desired and even better results than surgery.
Typically, the patient will notice his or her face shape change starting from the 6th week after the treatment. The change will be more prominent at 3 – 6 months. The effect can last for up to 1 year. Repeated injections may be needed – usually, at least two injection treatments are performed. Each treatment takes about 20 to 30 minutes where patient is fully awake and can continue with his or her daily activities shortly.
