Face-slimming BOTOX®


Giving the face a slimmer, more pleasing appearance is possible without cosmetic surgery thanks to face-slimming BOTOX®. The Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics provides BOTOX® to slim the jawline for patients who want a slimmer face if they believe their lower face is too wide. Face-slimming BOTOX® can sometimes even create the appearance of a 5- to 10-pound weight loss—with no gym or makeup necessary.

BOTOX® has traditionally been used to minimize expression wrinkles on the face that are linked to our habitual facial expressions, such as frowning, smiling, and squinting. However, patients often may not realize that BOTOX® for face slimming is also possible. The masseter muscle of the jaw can sometimes become enlarged or overly developed due to overuse or teeth grinding. For example, if you grind your teeth at night, the muscle may become larger. This can give your lower face a heavier, squarer appearance due to the bulked-up muscle.

Face-slimming BOTOX® reduces the activity of these muscles so they gradually atrophy and their size is reduced. Jawline BOTOX® or jaw-slimming BOTOX® is the main way this injectable neuromodulator treatment can make your face look slimmer and more defined. By relaxing certain muscles, BOTOX® for face slimming can have a significant impact on overall facial contours.

BOTOX® nose slimming involves softening lines and wrinkles called bunny lines at the sides of the nose. Muscle paralysis rhinoplasty—as this technique is known—can make the nose temporarily appear smaller and more youthful. This face-slimming BOTOX® technique can also lift the nose tip to improve the shape of the nose.


In addition to shaping and slimming the jaw and nose, face-slimming BOTOX® debulks and contours areas of the face for a more oval or V-shaped appearance. By reducing bulky areas or adding definition to a round face, BOTOX® face slimming can improve the overall shape of the face.

BOTOX® also has many other uses beyond face slimming, including smoothing crow’s feet or smile linesforehead and bunny lines, and wrinkles under the eyes, providing a brow lift, softening chin dimples, and addressing the neck with a Nefertiti lift. It can also be applied as a preventative treatment to stop or delay wrinkles from forming. Medical uses include reducing jaw clenching and migraines for sufferers of the chronic condition, as well as sweat in the feet and underarms.


If you want to reshape your face without the need for cosmetic surgery, you may be interested in face-slimming BOTOX®. Choose a reputable and experienced provider, like Dr. Holly Happe, instead of simply going with the first result when searching “BOTOX® near me.”

Individuals who believe that their lower face area is overly prominent, asymmetric, or disproportionate may be ideal candidates for jaw-slimming BOTOX®. Patients who have a round or square face and want to improve definition may benefit from these treatments. These techniques can also be beneficial for patients who want to enhance their nose without physically altering its shape via nasal surgery. If you have severe nasal deformities, breathing difficulties, or are nursing or pregnant, BOTOX® for nose slimming is not recommended and a different strategy will be suggested.


Face-slimming BOTOX® is a simple and straightforward procedure. A series of injections are administered to each side of the lower face for BOTOX® facial slimming, and usually you will not feel much—if any—discomfort. The recovery time is minimal, but the effects last for roughly three to four months, so you will need to return for more injections if you want to maintain the appearance of a slimmer-looking face. Avoid alcoholic beverages for at least 24 hours before your session and do not take medications or supplements that thin the blood for two weeks prior.


Dermal fillers from Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics are an option in addition to BOTOX® for jaw slimming, both of which can improve the contours of the face and create a more refined, V-shaped appearance. Hyaluronic acid fillers are injected into various areas of the face to improve structure and add volume beneath the skin. By lifting the mid-face area and reducing the appearance of jowls, fillers can create the look of a more defined jawline. Fillers can also be injected into the jaw and chin area directly to create a sharper look, which can make the face appear slimmer and elongated.

Kybella® is an injectable containing deoxycholic acid that breaks down fat between the chin and neck to reduce a double chin and create a slimmer jawline area. This treatment is ideal for patients who are bothered by excess fat in this area.
