Jawline Botox for a wide jaw is an often overlooked use of botulinum toxin, which many people solely associate with anti-wrinkle treatments. Botox® is a neurotoxin that blocks activity of the targeted muscle to reduce its activity, in this case the masseter. When the masseter is overactive, due to conditions like Bruxism, it can become larger and more prominent creating a wider appearance to the jaw.
Jawline Botox ® for masculinised appearance
Societal ideals tend to lean towards preferring a heart or oval face face shape for women, and for men to have a more squared or strong jaw. For those suffering from hyperactive masseter, teeth grinding, or similar, this wide jaw can be a source of self-consciousness as the female face becomes masculinised, and the male face becomes exaggerated through this unconscious activity.
Jawline Botox ® for muscle activity
If the underlying cause of a wide jaw is the structure of the bone itself, we may recommend seeing a plastic surgeon, as surgical intervention may be a more suitable option.However, if the cause of the wide jaw is muscle activity, this is usually amenable to Botox® treatment to reduce the squared appearance. This could be assessed during a no obligation consultation with one of our experienced doctors, which we require prior to any treatment. This is to ensure that you are able to get the right treatment for your individual needs, and can be booked by calling us directly in the clinic on 0207 034 5999.
