Botox® for Masseter Reduction
A heart-shaped or oval face is aesthetically pleasing for a feminine appearance. When the jaw and lower cheeks are wider, it can create a square or heavy looking jaw. The masseter muscle moves the lower jaw up and down and can become larger, creating a square jaw. If you want to reduce the width of your jaw or lower cheeks, Creative Facial Aesthetics offers Botox® for masseter reduction at our clinic in New York City.
The masseter jaw muscle is extremely strong and is one of the largest muscles in the facial region. Some people are prone to large masseter muscles, creating a round or square face. To slim the jaw and create a heart or oval shape to the face, the masseter muscle can be reduced. This is accomplished by using a neuromodulator, like Botox, to relax the masseter muscle. Over time, the masseter can shrink in size, and the shape of the face can change.
Non-Invasive Treatment for a Round Face
If you want to taper your chin and jaw for a heart-shaped face, the use of Botox for masseter reduction treatments may be the solution. The procedure is non-invasive and can be completed in just a few minutes at our clinic in NYC. Our team at Creative Facial Aesthetics expertly use Botox injections to target the masseter muscle. Over several weeks, the muscle is used less and can shrink in size, narrowing the lower face and jaw. Some patients may need repeated treatments to accomplish the desired results. Once the masseter reduction is complete, most people do not need continued Botox injections.
If you want to alter a round or square jaw, Botox for masseter reduction may be the right treatment for you. Contact our knowledgeable team at Creative Facial Aesthetics to meet with Dr. Khosh, Michele Rivard, PA, or one of our other associates.
