RESHAPE YOUR JAW WITH INJECTABLE TREATMENTS IN NEWTON AND THE BOSTON AREA
A sharp, defined jawline is typically associated with strength, youth, and fitness. However, some patients believe that their jaw looks too masculine and want to give it a slimmer, more oval shape. Jawline BOTOX® at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics—also known as jawline masseter BOTOX®, masseter reduction BOTOX®, masseter BOTOX®, or BOTOX® jaw reduction—is a technique used to reshape the jaw area or reduce tension. BOTOX® is one of the most common neuromodulators used to enhance the jaw area.
WHAT IS A WEAK OR OVERLY PROMINENT JAWLINE AND HOW CAN JAWLINE BOTOX® HELP?
A weak jawline is basically a jawline that is not well-defined. People who don’t have a “chiseled” jaw may notice that their chin and jaw have a soft, rounded angle. People sometimes also use the term “weak jawline” to refer to a receding chin that curves inward toward the neck.

One or more factors may contribute to a weak jawline, including genetics, aging, and an overbite. The muscles in the jaw area can be overused when the jaw clenches repeatedly, which can cause the jawline to become overly prominent. Jawline BOTOX® can help to slim the edges of the face and sculpt a more V-shaped appearance.
WHAT IS JAWLINE BOTOX®?
Before delving into how BOTOX® for jawline reduction works, it’s first necessary to explain how BOTOX® works in general, as well as the function of the masseter muscle.
The masseter muscle is one of the primary muscles involved in chewing. This rectangular muscle is part of the face and jaw, and its primary function is elevating the jawbone to bring the teeth together. Together with other muscles, the masseter muscle moves and stabilizes the jaw.
BOTOX® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that works as a muscle relaxer. When the neurotoxin is injected into specific muscles, it temporarily relaxes them so they can’t contract as forcefully. This strategy is commonly used for reducing expression wrinkles that are associated with muscle movement—especially those that develop in the upper third of the face, such as the forehead and the corners of the eyes. Happily, it can also be used for jawline slimming to change your face shape.
When nerve signals sent to the masseter muscle are blocked by the neuromodulator, the muscle can’t move. Strategic injections into the muscles on both sides of the jaw area near the cheekbones for masseter muscle reduction allows jawline BOTOX® to give the face a slimmer, more chiselled shape. This gradually reduces the size of the bulky muscles by causing them to naturally atrophy and shrink. Jawline BOTOX® is a common technique used for face slimming with BOTOX®.
WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF JAWLINE BOTOX®?
There are numerous benefits associated with non-surgical jaw reduction with BOTOX®. Jawline BOTOX® can contour a square jaw, sculpt a more balanced face shape, and gradually reduce the prominence of the jaw muscles for a more refined jawline. Jawline BOTOX® can have medical benefits as well, such as providing relief from jaw pain, tension in the jaw, neck, and shoulders, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) soreness, and tension headaches—all by reducing jaw clenching.
WHO IS AN IDEAL CANDIDATE FOR JAWLINE BOTOX®?
Patients who don’t want to have plastic surgery and don’t have sagging skin that they want to remove from the lower face area should consider BOTOX® for the jawline.
Jawline BOTOX® is a great choice for patients who have an asymmetric or disproportionate jawline because of overuse. On the other hand, this jawline slimming technique is not meant for individuals who have an overly prominent jawline because of large jawbones.
Patients who want to address their jawline often also have other areas they would like to treat. Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics also offers BOTOX® for addressing bunny lines next to the nose, forehead lines, and unwanted dimpling on the chin. The injectable can also give the brow a modest lift, serve as a preventative treatment to keep wrinkles from developing, and even reduce chronic migraines for certain patients.
WHAT IS THE NEWTON JAWLINE BOTOX® COSMETIC EXPERIENCE?
Prior to having any type of BOTOX® treatment, patients will be asked to avoid taking medications or supplements that thin the blood. There will be some minor side effects from jaw BOTOX®, such as tenderness, redness, and bruising that resolve on their own within a few days. Multiple neurotoxin treatments spaced out over several months may be needed to achieve optimal results.
ARE THERE JAWLINE-DEFINING OPTIONS ASIDE FROM JAWLINE BOTOX®?
BOTOX® Cosmetic for jawline is a popular option, but Dr. Holly Happe also provides dermal fillers, which are injections of soft, gel-like substances that are typically made with hyaluronic acid. Dermal fillers for the jawline are injected beneath the skin directly over the jaw to enhance the appearance of the bony edge. Various types of cosmetic treatments can be done on their own or combined to improve the balance of the facial contours. Jeuveau™, Dysport®, and Xeomin® are other neuromodulators that soften facial wrinkles and work similarly to BOTOX®.
