As a health professional it is always exciting to find more uses for Botox for patients. Botox has many benefits such as smoothing out fine lines and wrinkles, helping patients who suffer from migraines and excessive sweating and now it can be used to create a more feminine face.
Some women, especially Asian patients, often have large masseter muscles. These are the muscles in the jawline which help with closing the jaw during chewing. It is very desirable in a man to have large masseter muscles which create a square jawline. However, women with a square jawline are looking for a way to reshape their face and make it more feminine.
Jaw reduction surgery was the only option available until now. This procedure is an invasive procedure which involves cutting or shaving the jawbone to reshape the face. Surgery requires pain, downtime and may not always work for patients. Botox can be injected into the muscle which weakens the muscle over time. This weakening makes the muscle appear smaller and creates a thinner, more feminine face. This gives the patient a graceful and softer appearance. Patients may need 2-3 treatments to have a long lasting effect to the jaw line. Botox is non-invasive and can be performed on a lunch break!
