There are two reasons for bulky or square jaws:
- the bone structure,
- the over-development of masseter (jaw) muscles
- or a combination of both
For most Asians, it is due to the over-development of masseter (jaw) muscles, and this can be reduced by Botox, Dysport (both Botulinum Toxin A, BTX for short) injections. For anyone who feels that their jawline is too prominent or square, and wishes to slim their jaw, Botox or Dysport injections may be suitable and very effective, with minimal downtown and no surgical scarring. It is possible to achieve a more contoured and refined V shape face. Some call it the ‘face slimming botox’.
The benefits of Botox or Dysport Jaw Reduction or Slimming is
- Minimally invasive
- Little or no recovery time
- Minimal disruption to your lifestyle
- Mostly pain-free process
Achieving the V-face shape
‘Jaw reduction botox’ or ‘face slimming botox’ is a cornerstone in creating the V-shaped face. By slimming the masseter (jaw) muscles, what used to be overly developed or large muscles causing a bulky looking face, overly prominent jaw or square shaped jaw, can be reduced, making the lower face look smaller. Dysport or Botox to jaw slimming is especially effective in reducing a square jawline, creating a more contoured V-shape face.
It starts with a consultation with the doctor. At IAC, Dr Daniel Chang is an expert in jaw slimming treatments, and can help you achieve a more youthful, contoured V-shaped face.
The procedure is non-invasive. It involves administering Dysport (a brand of Botulinum Toxin A) in a series of small injections into the area being treated, using very fine needles. Numbing cream may be used to greatly reduce any pain.
This is a rather quick process, and can be performed during a lunch break. There is virtually no downtime, and you can return to the rest of your day after this procedure. There may be some mild needle marks (but not always the case), which subsides within a few hours.
In the first 3 to 5 days, the muscles start to relax.
In the next 4-6 weeks, the jaw starts to slim down nicely.
Usually, jaw reduction BTX can be done together with other face contouring procedures to achieve the V-face shape. (See more here)
The results of jaw reduction BTX (Dysport) can last approximately 6 months (it varies with individuals). You may opt to do touch-ups before that to prolong results, or do another full BTX jaw slimming session 6 months later.
Clients that clench their teeth or chew more may find that their masseter muscles grow back relatively faster.
Sometimes, the results last longer once you have had a number of jaw slimming sessions, or you may actually need less BTX, Dysport per session.
Dr Daniel Chang at IAC is an expert in the Infinity V-face Lift. He uses different modalities like Chin Fillers, Threadlifts and HIFU to achieve the delicate V-face. (See more here)
