Square Jaw Neurotoxin Injection for a V-Shaped Face

An attractive female face looks like an inverted triangle, where the upper face gradually tapers into a sharp chin. A male face typically has a square jawline, which gives the face a masculine boxy shape.  Jaw reduction using neurotoxin injection is a cosmetic procedure. Neurotoxin Injection can shrink masseter muscles for jaw reduction.

Plastic Surgery

The old method used to sculpt a square jaw was plastic surgery. Many are unwilling to go through the operation to shave the jawbone or remove the outer layer of the lower jawbone to reduce the muscles there. Facial implants are another alternative to achieve a V-shaped face.

Square Jaw Reduction with Neurotoxin

To taper a square jaw, we use neurotoxin injection to shrink overdeveloped masseter muscles. The masseter muscle is located in the jaw. Its main purpose is to move the jaw for chewing food and clenching the teeth. This muscle typically enlarges with age. People who have large masseters will have a square jawline.

Nonsurgical jawline contouring with the drug relaxes the masseter muscles so that the muscle gradually reduces in size. The balance of the face is restored and appearance softened by a slim jaw. The treatment is safe, painless, and fast. It is also an effective lunchtime procedure. There is no recovery time, and you can continue with your normal daily activities with no downtime. Long-term jaw reduction can be achieved with a complete course of injections.
