Square jaw Reduction
A square jaw line is considered more of a masculine feature that gives the face a boxier shape, and it is for this reason that jaw line contouring has become a popular cosmetic procedure. Cosmetic jaw line contouring is typically performed on women. It has the ability to achieve a less prominent jaw line, create a harmonious balance with other facial features and soften the appearance.
People who have an enlarged masseter often have a square jaw line. The masseter is a muscle located in the jaw, responsible for moving the jaw when people clench or chew.
Some personal habits, such as excessive chewing of hard foods, chewing gum, or grinding teeth can cause a noticeable enlargement of the masseter.
The use of Botulinum toxin COSMETIC® for jaw line contouring has been scientifically proven to relax the masseter by blocking nerve impulses to the masseter so that the masseter will gradually shrink, narrowing the lower face, and softening theapperance of jaw line contour.
Noticeable results appear within 2-6 weeks after the treatment. The effects of Botulinum toxin COSMETIC® jawline contouring can last longer than that of forehead cosmetic injections as the jawline volume takes longer to return.
