Jaw Slimming

Masseter hypertrophy is a clinical phenomenon characterised by soft swelling near the angle of the jawbone that modifies the lower face’s shape. Botulinum toxin injections can create this aesthetically slimmer, smoother jawline, resulting in a more ‘heart-shaped’ face. Botulinum selectively remodels the masseter over time, leading to a reduction in size and projection of the jaw. Patients typically observe reshaping of the jawline at six weeks.
