Also known as Botox for Masseter Reduction, Dr. Yang performs this procedure on patients who wish to reduce the appearance of a wide or square jawline. By relaxing the muscles in that area of the face, the jaw becomes less angular and a rounder facial appearance is created.
How Botox for Jaw Reduction Works
By injecting Botox into the muscles responsible for chewing, Dr. Yang is able to relax the muscles causing them to shrink in size and soften the jawline. Typically patients see results from the Botox for jaw reduction procedure in 3-5 weeks as time is needed for the muscle to shrink after it has been relaxed by the Botox. There is no recovery time needed for this procedure, and improvement in the appearance of the jaw occurs gradually over a course of several weeks following the injections. The results of the botox for jaw reduction procedure typically last from 6 months to a year.
