How To Use Botox For Jawline Contouring

Last Modified: August 3, 2022

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

While many people are aware that Botox injections can help you to reduce the appearance of crow's feet or minimize the look of fine lines in the forehead, fewer are aware of jawline contouring with Botox.

But how exactly do jawline injections of Botox help to give your chin and jawline the shape you've always dreamed of?

That's what this post focuses on.

Keep on reading to learn more about how to narrow your jaw with Botox. We'll also tell you a few important considerations that you need to know before you decide to get Botox -- whether in your jawline or anywhere else.

Jaw Botox: How it Works

We understand that you're likely curious as to exactly how jawline Botox actually works.

The good news?

The procedure is far less complicated and time-consuming than you're imagining.

Botox helps to target what's known as the masseter muscle of your jaw. While the masseter muscle helps you to be able to chew your food, it can also impact the overall shape of your jawline.

Your masseter muscle also increases in size as you age.

If you like to chew gum, your masseter muscle can actually get larger. The harder and larger the masseter muscle within your jawline is, the more likely that Botox will provide the right reshaping solution for you.

Botox actually helps to lessen the size of your masseter muscle. It also creates more angular and natural shapes within the jawline itself. This means you'll have a less square-shaped jaw.

It helps to soften the overall look of your jawline. Especially if you're concerned that your jawline may be causing you to look more masculine than you'd prefer, Botox is the ideal solution.

But what if you're concerned about how the treatment might interfere with your daily life?

Don't worry.

Your ability to properly chew or swallow your food will be in no way impacted by your decision to get jawline contouring with Botox.

Why It's a Better Alternative to Surgery

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 much more affordable than a face and neck life. However, the benefits of Botox go far beyond the cost alone.

First of all, Botox injections don't require you to take any recovery time. No more taking time off work to heal or having to live in hiding for a week to avoid suspicious glances.

Additionally, it's completely non-surgical, which means you won't have to be put under any sort of potentially dangerous anesthesia. Instead, you'll simply be numbed at the site of the injection.

Plus, Botox can also work to stop newer wrinkles from forming. In fact, many patients now see Botox as a sort of preventative beauty treatment. This means you'll stay looking younger for longer -- without the need for surgery.

What's not to love about that?

Important Considerations Before Getting Jawline Botox

Now that you have a much better understanding of how jawline injections of Botox help you to narrow the look of your jaw and chin, let's cover what else you ought to know beforehand.

First of all, keep in mind that jaw Botox is not going to last forever -- as much as we'd all love for it to.

In general, you should expect to need to get the injections about once every four or so months to keep the look you prefer.

While the side effects of Botox are minor and extremely rare, you may experience slight swelling or redness near the injection site. This is the biggest reason why it's so important to go to an aesthetician who is licensed and experienced.

Many unfortunate people end up going with shady, less-than-professional Botox "specialist" who is willing to give them a low price on injections.

This often leads to disastrous results -- avoid it at all costs.

It's also essential that you let your aesthetician or doctor know about any allergies to medications you have or any current health problems you're experiencing.

Also, be aware that you'll most likely need to avoid taking any sort of aspirin for a little over a week before you have the Botox done.

Finally, remember that when it comes to the overall cost of your procedure, you're generally charged based on the number of injections that you get.

So, depending on the severity of the change you would like to make, you may need more or fewer injections than average.
