BOTOX Cosmetic is one of the most popular and commonly performed non-surgical cosmetic procedures – not just in Miami, but around the world. Every year, hundreds of thousands of patients receive BOTOX injections and leave satisfied with both the results and the ease and safety of the procedure.

One of the reasons BOTOX is so popular is that it can achieve some pretty extraordinary results. BOTOX is often used to remove fine lines, wrinkles, creases and other Botox injections for jaw reduction in Miamisigns of age and wear, and it does this with exceptional effectiveness.

However, many patients aren't aware that BOTOX can dramatically improve the definition of your jaw line. And in doing so, it can greatly sharpen and improve your overall facial appearance.

If you live in or around Miami, Florida and you have questions about how BOTOX can improve your jaw line definition, please call Miami Skin & Vein today at 786-618-5039 for a consultation.

How can BOTOX Improve the Definition of My Jaw Line?

A sharp, well-defined jaw line can do a lot to improve your level of self-confidence in your facial appearance. It creates an attractive, aesthetically pleasing profile, a kind of classically striking look that many men and women desire.

On the other hand, when the jaw seems to be too wide, it creates a bulky, unwieldy appearance – the face looks wide and “puffy,” and many women report that they feel they look too masculine.

This is where BOTOX can help. In many cases, this overly prominent jaw line is caused not by your jaw bone, but in fact by your masseter muscle. The masseter is one of the most powerful muscles in your body – it wraps around your jaw and allows you to open and close it at will.

Over time, the masseter muscle can enlarge – often due to teeth grinding (bruxism) and clenching. And when the masseter muscle enlarges, it can have a dramatic effect on the appearance of your face. An overly large masseter muscle makes your jaw line appear wider and more prominent than you want it to be. An enlarged masseter muscle can masculanize and otherwise feminine face. 

BOTOX injections will relax the muscle, reducing its ability to exert heavy force. This won't prevent you from eating or speaking, but it will thin out the muscle, weakening it a little. The result will be a much less prominent masseter muscle and, in turn, a much less prominent jaw line and slimmer lower face.

The procedure doesn't take much time at all, and you'll be able to return to work immediately after your treatment. Side effects are usually mild and can include soreness and tenderness.
