A wide jaw can be a symbol of masculinity, which can cause problems for some women when they are concerned about wanting to appear more feminine. Wide, or square, jaws can be caused by overactive masseter muscles in the sides of the face, used when chewing. Bruxism, or grinding teeth (consciously or subconsciously during sleep) can cause your masseter muscle to grow in size, leading to a heavier-set jaw.

In the quest for a softer, more heart-shaped face, our jawline slimming treatment is perfect. At PHI Clinic, we use precise amounts of Botulinum Toxin type A to perform a variety of treatments, including reduction of frown lines and forehead lines, as well as jawline slimming. While Botox is known as an anti-wrinkle injection, this is a safe, clinically proven alternative to invasive surgery. Botox® temporarily relaxes the overworked masseter muscle to achieve a softer silhouette to the jaw, with a redefined contour.
We pride ourselves on our natural looking results, and exclusively use the brand Botox® by Allergan to achieve these. As this is only a temporary treatment, we recommend that you have top up sessions regularly, every 3 to 4 months to ensure the continuity of the smooth appearance. This treatment can take as few as 20 minutes, and can last for up to 4 months.
Conditions treated with Jawline Slimming
A wide jaw in women can be seen as a masculine or unattractive trait, manifesting as a large, square lower jaw. This condition is caused by bone, muscle, or a mixture of the two. The most obvious cause is a large jaw bone, or mandible, which is usually congenital, but can develop through conditions such as acromegaly.

Frequently Asked Questions
One session is enough to notice a difference, but we see this as an ongoing treatment, so it should be topped up every 3-4 months for continued slimming results.
A wide jaw caused by an overactive masseter muscle is treatable, whereas a wide jawbone is not, and may require a more invasive procedure. To find out more about jawline slimming and whether you are suitable candidate for treatment, you will need to have a consultation with one of our highly trained injectors.
Dr Tapan Patel or one of his specially selected team of doctors will perform this treatment for you. Our nurse injectors can also provide jawline slimming, and even perform Dr Tapan’s own personal jawline Botox treatment.
Side effects for this treatment can include swelling and redness, due to the injectable nature of the treatment, but any concerns you have should be raised with your assigned clinician in your initial patient consultation. Most patients report reduction in swelling and redness within 24 hours, with results visible from 5-7 days post treatment, and optimal results at 2-3 weeks.
Consultation cost varies according to the practitioner who treats you.
