How Does Botox Improve The Jawline

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

By now many people are aware of what botox can do for their fine lines and wrinkles, but not many people know how botox contouring can help their jawline. How exactly do jawline injections of botox help to give your chin and jawline the shape you want you may be wondering?

The procedure is actually far less complicated and time consuming than you might be imagining. The injections are targeted to your masseter muscle, which is the muscle in your jaw that helps you chew food as well as defines the overall shape of your jawline.

Botox contouring will help soften the overall look of your jawline, so it’s ideal for people that feel they have a more masculine jawline than they’d prefer. Often, botox contouring is a safer and better alternative to cosmetic surgery. But there’s more to know before you schedule an appointment.

No matter your age or your gender, getting Botox has never been more popular than it is now.

But most people don’t know how botox can work to contour their jawline.

So how do jawline injections of botox give you the sculpted jaw you’ve dreamed of?

We’ll tell you how it works, and the things you need to consider before you make an appointment.


Have no fear, jawline contouring with botox injections isn’t as complicated or time-consuming as you may think.

The injections target the masseter muscle of your jaw, which is responsible for your ability to chew, and impacts your overall jawline shape.

As you age your masseter muscle increases in size.

It also get bigger if you are a frequent gum chewer.

The harder and larger the masseter muscle in your jaw is, the more likely that botox will provide the right reshaping solution for you.

Overall, the injections soften the look of your jaw, meaning you’ll have a less square-shaped jaw.

Jawline contouring is perfect for people who feel their jawline is a bit too masculine.

And don’t worry, your ability to chew and swallow food will in no way be impacted.


Now that you know more about how jaw Botox works, let us help you to understand why so often, it's a much better and safer alternative to cosmetic surgery.

Of course botox injections are cheaper than a face and neck lift, but the benefits go beyond cost.

First, botox injections don’t require any recovery time.

So no need to take off work or live in hiding for a while.

Second, it’s completely non-surgical.

This means no need to be put under any sort of potentially dangerous anesthesia.

And lastly, botox can actually stop newer wrinkles from forming.

In fact, many people now view botox as a preventative beauty treatment.


As perfect as jawline botox sounds, there are a few things you need to consider before getting it.

First off, jaw botox is not going to last forever.

It’s a shame, we know.

In general, you should expect to need to get injections about once every six months to keep the look you want.

And while the side effects of botox are minor and extremely rare, you may experience slight swelling or redness at the injection site.

So it’s important to go to an aesthetician who is licensed and experienced.

It’s also important that your aesthetician or doctor know about any allergies to medication you may have, or current health problems you are experiencing.

So be ready to discuss these things at your consultation.

Finally, remember when it comes to overall cost, it’s a combination of fixed fee, and the number of injections you get.

Hopefully now you have a good understanding of how jawline contouring with botox works, and also have an idea of whether or not it’s right for you.

Remember that, above anything else, the quality and even the staying power of your results will depend on where you go to get the treatment done.
