HOW DOES IT WORK?
Facial shape changes over time as a result of aging and lifestyle. An oval face shape with a well shaped jawline is considered to be a sign of youth and beauty. Masseter muscles, essential for chewing, help to define the shape, angle and contour of the jawline. Overdeveloped masseter muscles, often a result dietary habits, chewing gum, or teeth grinding, may lend a squareness or asymmetry to the jaw that is considered masculine. In addition, as we age the fat compartments in the face deflate and descend, leading to a saggy appearance and a changed facial contour.

Who Is Suitable For Botox?
Only a certified doctor can decide whether you can have the treatment or not after assessing the masseter muscle. The physician checks your muscles thickness by palpating it and considers Botox treatment for you if your masseter muscle is hard and large.
However, Botox is not suitable for people whose square jawline is mainly due to their jaw bone. This is so because the treatment has no effect on the anatomical structures.
What Are Neuromodulators and How Do They Soften My Jawline ?
Neuromodulators such as BotoxⓇ, DysportⓇ and XeominⓇ work by relaxing the activity of certain muscles. Injecting a neuromodulator into the masseter muscles weakens those muscles, gradually reducing bulk. This results in a slimmer face and a softer jawline.
How Long Do Botox Last?
The results of Botox face slimming last for more than 4 to 6 months, but as its effects wear off, you may start noticing that your face takes its previous shape. However, with multiple Botox treatments, the muscle loses its shape and maintains a relaxed state which might end up giving you a narrow jawline for a much longer time. The results of Botox are not permanent, and ultimately the habit of teeth grinding also returns. The muscle which has slimmed goes back to its previous original shape, and the muscle mass increases again, requiring repeat treatments every 6 months.
