Botulinum toxin is used cosmetically to paralyze the facial muscles. Functionally, this treatment can improve the pain that some people experience in their jaw and also alleviates uncomfortable night grinding. From a cosmetic perspective, it will also work to slim the muscle and create the more narrow lower face and sleeker jaw appearance for you.
First of all, it is important to reference landmarks for jawline injection. A quadrangular zone is drawn demarcating the area in which the masseter is well-developed. Also, the entry point is at a safe distance from vital anatomic structures. The treatment will be carried out by our highly experienced cosmetic doctors in order to achieve the best outcome for customers.
This Jawline Botox Slimming treatment is suitable for people who have a masseter muscle problem because the procedure targets the muscle that is located on the side of the jaw on both sides. If you have a wide jawline, strong masseter muscle, or you have an asymmetrical face looking to make your face more symmetrical, this treatment is ideal for you. Also, some young girls who like to chew hard food may face the same issue that their muscles give volume and fullness to the sides of the jaw.
By injecting botulinum toxin to relax the masseter muscles, the large muscle will decrease and shrink down in size over time. As a result, the toxin will work to slim down the jaw area and make your face appear slimmer.
However, the injection on the jawline does not recommend for people who have prior allergic reaction, infection or inflammation in injection areas, neuromuscular disease, coagulation dysfunction-related diseases, or anticoagulation therapy. Moreover, injections are not ideal for pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you are not sure if the jaw reduction is suitable for you, just schedule a consultation with our doctors to determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
Our professional team of experienced and esteemed aesthetic doctors can provide a set of safe and effective injection standards tailored to different aesthetics and skin types.
The whole Jawline Botox Slimming treatment consists of a small number of tiny injections and will cause a minimum of discomfort. The procedure will not take more than a few minutes, and the pain level is low. Botulinum toxin typically takes 1-2 weeks to start working, with full slimming results seen in 4 to 6 weeks. To maintain a slimmer appearance, you may need to continue to get injections several times per year.
Jawline injection can partially relax your masseter muscles to create a visible V-line in the face. The process is easy and quick. Eventually, your face will look youthful and slender while emphasizing your cheekbones.

Q： Is the jawline reduction procedure safe?
The application of botulinum in oral and maxillofacial surgery begins in 1982, and it is mainly used for reducing muscle mass and smoothing the skin. Since then, it has been used for cosmetic purposes widely. Its trade name “Botox” was initially accepted by the FDA in 1992 and finally approved its application in many diseases. Botulinum neurotoxin type A has been increasingly utilized to treat in the aesthetic field, so effectiveness and safety can be guaranteed.
Q： How long can you see the result?
In the beginning, it takes 3 weeks to start working, and you can find the results can be evidently seen in approximately 4 to 6 weeks. So, on average, the difference will typically last between 4 to 6 months. However, we still recommend a second session at 3 to 6 months following the first injection to reduce bone and muscle bulk to attempt at greater longevity.
Q： How long does it last?
This may vary from patient to patient. You can expect your Botox jaw reduction to last at least 3 to 6 months, with this longevity increasing with regular treatments. If you insist on having the procedure, the result could be permanent after 3 injection cycles.
How We Use Botox to Contour Your Jawline?
Botox can actually reshape your jawline. If you have a face shape that’s too wide at the jaws, the culprits behind that are most likely your masseter muscles, otherwise known as your chewing muscles. As you age, these muscles can actually become more pronounced over time, causing a woman’s face to look more masculine. So, by injecting Botox into these muscles, you can actually slim down your face, giving it a more feminine, symmetrical look. With repeated Botox injections, your chewing muscles will become weaker over time, resulting in a smaller jawline.
Compared to more traditional jawline recontouring procedures, which involve invasive and complicated techniques such as shaving the jaw bone and/or removing the muscle or outer layer of the lower jaw, Botox jawline contouring is non-surgical and non-invasive, meaning you can resume your normal activities just a few days after treatment!
While regular Botox on the upper face works within seven to ten days following treatment, Botox injected into the masseter muscle takes about six weeks before you’ll be able to see a noticeable difference, and the results last anywhere from four to six months to a year (longevity may vary, depends on the patient). But, you should notice at the end of the first week that your jawline feels and looks softer. You should undergo a second session four to six months following the first injection to really recontour your jawline.
