Botox for Jawline Reduction is a nonsurgical, injectable procedure that uses Botox Cosmetic to soften and feminize the contour of the lower face by relaxing and shrinking the large masseter muscles that attach to the angles of the mandible (jaw bone) near the ear.
Overactive or hypertrophied (enlarged) masseter muscles are a common problem in women of Asian ancestry, but can be a cosmetically concerning issue in any man or woman. Excessive gum chewing and frequent intense workouts with grunting facial expressions can be a common cause of masseter muscle hypertrophy, but in many cases the cause is genetic in origin.

How long does Botox for Jawline Reduction last?
In most cases, Botox will keep the size of the masseter muscles in check for 9-12 months, but we recommend treatments every 6 months to maintain an ideal result without allowing any regrowth of the muscle during short periods where all the Botox is worn off. The treatments only take 15-20 minutes, and there is no downtime so you can easily go back to your normal daily activities immediately after the procedure.
Surgical Options for Jawline Reduction
Bone Recontouring Surgery for Jawline Reduction a surgical procedure that can produce dramatic, permanent, and excellent results, but the tradeoff is a significantly increased cost and recovery as compared to Botox. A significant amount of bruising and swelling are very common after procedures of this magnitude, but if this is not a concern for you, the results can be outstanding once fully healed.
How much does Botox for Jawline Augmentation cost?
The injectable procedure costs $1200, which includes the initial session of 25-50 units of Botox injected into multiple, precisely mapped, locations of the masseter muscle, followed by a second session approximately 4 weeks after the first to customize the results even further towards your desired level of jaw recontouring. In some cases the second treatment is not necessary if the result you see after the initial session is exactly what you wanted. Once you are happy with the level of masseter atrophy, we recommend that you continue the 15-20 minute treatments twice per year (one treatment every 6 months) for best results.
