Facial shape is one of the main features that enhances your youthfulness and attractiveness. A V-line in the face, which refers to a contour that tapers from the cheekbones to the chin, is naturally a sign of beauty. However, sometimes the masseters on the side of the face make the jawline appear broader, which women often consider a less desirable feature on their own face. For a V-shape face, you need the correct balance between cheekbones and jawline in order to attain a softer appearance. Botox is a great, non-surgical way to slim down the jawline and make you feel confident – here’s why.

Why Botox for Your Jawline
Botox works by partially relaxing your masseter muscles and reducing the size to emphasize your jawline and cheekbones, ultimately achieving the desired V-line. Completing this procedure will also relieve pain you may feel from grinding your teeth, a habit which typically comes from an overload of pressure in highly developed masseters.
Typically, the area is treated with 3 injections of Botox per side of the face. With jawline slimming, you should notice results after 8 weeks. The treatment is gradual and you’ll notice more of a difference overtime. To maintain this look, you should repeat the treatment every 3-6 months. Completing this procedure takes only about 5-10 minutes, so you don’t have to take much time out of your day.
Dr. Boulos will ensure to give you the best advice possible in order to have a natural transition to the jawline you desire. We examine your natural features and provide tailored advice so that you’re fully satisfied.
Don’t plan on participating in any physical activity after the treatment is complete. Also, refrain from lying down during the first few hours after the treatment. Typically, the procedure doesn’t come with any side effects, however in very rare cases, you may experience temporary slight bruising.
