Botulinum Toxin Injections for Non-Surgical Jaw Reduction
Non-surgical jaw reduction can be achieved using botulinum toxin. Injections into the jaw muscle (Massester muscle) can help both with excessive teeth grinding (Bruxism) and also with reducing the size of the muscle and thereby reducing the size of the jaw. This treatment can transform the jaw from a square shape to a more feminine ‘V’ shape. The injections do this by weakening the jaw muscle over time.
Not everyone is suitable for non-surgical jaw reduction and a Cosmetech Consultant will evaluate patients before deciding to provide treatment. How suitable a patient is will depend on the size of their jaw muscle.
Depending on muscle size, patients may need up to 3 treatments to obtain maximum effect.
This is a relatively painless procedure with no downtime and little swelling or bruising.
It can take up to 6 weeks for the effects of the procedure to become visible and results can last from 6 to 12 months.
