Botox for Square Jaw

While a strong, square jawline can be distinctly masculine and desirable in male patients, many female patients are seeking softer, more feminized shape to their face. Particularly in Asian females, changing the shape of the face from square to a more attractive oval shape can add a more gentle graceful appearance.  In some patients, the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle, is enlarged from grinding and clenching the teeth, creating extra facial width. Botox selectively weakens this muscle over time leading to attractive change in facial shape without surgery or downtime.  Ask the provider if this procedure may be right for you.
