WHAT IS COSMETIC JAWLINE CONTOURING (Cosmetic Jawline Slimming, Cosmetic Jawline Reduction)?

Botox and Jeuveau are effective treatments for reducing a prominent or asymmetric jawline caused by enlarged muscles. The muscles along the posterior jaw are used to chew and clench the teeth and can become enlarged when the clenching teeth while sleeping. The botox treatment reduces the size of the muscles injected, thereby smoothing the facial contour.

Botulinum toxin is used cosmetically to paralyze the facial muscles. In the jaw, we can use neurotoxins in the masseter muscle. The masseter muscle is one of many muscles that help us chew, and you can feel it as a profound prominence along your jawline when you clench your teeth down. It is also a muscle that is sometimes tight in individuals who clench their jaw or grind their teeth at night.

Using Botulinum toxin to reduce muscle size is not uncommon and can be used for enlarged jaw muscles and calf muscles to improve body contouring. Botox blocks the signal from the nerves to the muscles preventing contraction. The muscle will cease to grow in size and begin atrophy by preventing contraction, reducing its prominence.

Before treatment, the area will be cleaned and marked for injection. Typically, 15-50 units of botox is injected on each side of the face into the masseter muscle. This treatment should not have a significant impact on biting or chewing. Patients interested in receiving botox to contour the jawline must be aware that the injection will only treat overactive masseter muscles and not improve a squared jawline caused by bone structure.

Injections of botulinum toxin to this area will act to weaken the masseter muscle. Functionally, this improves the pain that some people experience in their jaw and alleviates uncomfortable night grinding. The injections will also slim the muscle and create a more narrow lower face and sleeker jaw appearance from a cosmetic perspective. It will take a more rectangular face and create a more heart-shaped or inverted triangle type shape.

Jawline slimming reduces a prominent, disproportionate, or asymmetric jawline by weakening the masseter muscles with botox injections.

We specialize in the art of non-surgical jawline slimming through injecting Botox/Jeuveau into the masseter muscle.

The masseter muscle is the muscle used for chewing food and clenching our jaws.

Many people have an overactive masseter muscle when they sleep, leading to a hypertrophied masseter muscle.

The results in a square or wide jawline and often causes TMJ.

Both issues can be addressed by relaxing the masseter muscle, resulting in a slimmer face and narrower jawline, and resolving TMJ pain.

Other ways to make your jawline appear firmer and slimmer are jawline filler with Voluma and Submental-liposuction Cosmetic Surgery.

FAQ

If you are looking to enhance a jawline, two syringes would be best. Depending on your desired result, if you are looking to build more of a jawline, you will need more than four to five syringes of filler.

Small doses of BOTOX COSMETIC are injected into the lower jaw and down the side of the neck along with the lateral neck muscles. As with all Botox® injections, it may take up to two weeks to see the final results. Like Botox in other areas, the effects can be expected to last three to four months.

Cosmetic Jawline Contouring fillers last 9-18 months. The persistence of fillers is prolonged in persons who regularly perform this procedure.

One of the most beneficial features of nonsurgical cosmetic jawline contouring with fillers like Juvéderm Voluma is the longevity of the results. Patients can enjoy their new look for up to two years before another treatment is needed

Like all Botox procedures, the results will last 3-4 months, though with continued Cosmetic Jawline Contouring injections, the muscle will begin to atrophy over time due to lack of use, and the jaw will stay narrower.

Most people can achieve excellent jawline sculpting results with two to four vials of filler (one to two per side). A typical Cosmetic Jawline Contouring treatment session usually costs between $1,200–$2,400.

Most patients will need 2-4 syringes to achieve a sharp, defined look. Those looking for a softer result may be able to achieve it with less.

To counteract the formation of jowls, fillers can be injected to lift both the cheeks and the skin around the jawline and mouth.

This treatment is a non-invasive solution for anybody who has ever been a little insecure about the lower half of their face, or those who have lost volume in this area over the years. People of all ages and face shapes seek out jaw fillers. Why? Because it’s effective, long-lasting, and 100% worth it.

Contouring can help make your cheekbones look more chiseled and sucked in. Or you may not like how square your jaw is, so you can soften it by using cream contour. … There is no need to be against contouring. I like to call it sculpting, it sounds less scary and people aren’t so against it.

Ultherapy is a non-invasive, highly-focused ultrasound treatment that stimulates new collagen and elastin deep within the skin to tighten and lift the skin of the upper and lower face, the neck, under the chin, the eyebrows. Ultherapy reduces fine lines and wrinkles of the décolletage and chest.

As we age gravity pulls on our lower face, leading to sagging jowls, decreased elasticity, and hanging skin of the chin, neck, and lower face. Injecting Botox® in this area can provide a subtle lift, helping you look younger and refreshed.

Lunchtime facelift, also known as the thread lift or mini facelift, is the less invasive and cheaper alternative to the traditional facelift. The procedure entails lifting different parts of your facial skin using threads. Essentially, it involves hooking the skin and pulling it up to correct the sagging of the skin.

With your mouth closed, push your lower jaw out and lift your lower lip. You should feel a stretch build just under the chin and in the jawline. Hold the position for 10–15 seconds, then relax. Perform three sets of fifteen.

There are several options for treating sagging jowls or reducing how saggy or droopy they appear. Surgical procedures, such as neck lifts, can tighten your skin and make it look less saggy. Nonsurgical procedures, such as thermage, lasers, and peels, can change the collagen composition in your skin.

What causes prognathism (big jaw)? Some people are born with a more prominent jaw that’s genetically inherited and not caused by an underlying medical condition. In other cases, prognathism may be a sign of one of the following conditions, which are extremely rare: Acromegaly occurs when your body produces too much growth hormone.

Exercising the neck, chin, jaw, and other facial muscles can lead to subtle changes in your face, including sharper cheekbones and a more prominent jawline. One study found that regular facial exercises for 20 weeks led to fuller cheeks and a more youthful appearance.

When you’re thin, just a tiny amount of fat under your jaw — called submental fat — may feel like it’s too much for your profile. Most of the time, it’s just a result of genetics, and someone in your family tree passed on the tendency to have a little more flesh or fat in the chin area.

Around the lips, the chin softens, and jowls start to form. Ages 50 – 60: Lines and loose skin develop on the neck. The jaw loses its form and shape, and lips deepen around the mouth and begin to lose fullness: jowls form, and the end of the nose droops.

    5 star review  Tonya is amazing!! She made me feel so comfortable and really listened to my concerns about my skin. She really cares and knows what she is doing. I wouldn’t go anywhere else!! I was concerned my first appointment but I just had my third and I can say it’s so worth it!!! Botox has been an incredible experience and I’m so happy to have tried it, I’m so much happier with my appearance and it looks incredibly natural. I’ve included before and after photos, neither photo is filtered or edited, you can see how makeup would collect in my forehead, and how the after it’s smooth and looks so lovely. It doesn’t feel weird or like I can’t move my muscles at all, it feels super natural. One of my biggest concerns was that I wouldn’t be able to emote with Botox but that’s just not true at all. I feel so confident and that is thanks to Tonya!

PROCEDURE PREP

Before your treatment session, our physician will discuss what to expect during your treatment. However, it is helpful to remember that there are a few things to take into consideration before your session:

  • At least three to four days before your procedure, discontinue anti-inflammatory medications.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue any blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins.
  • One to two weeks before your procedure, discontinue systematic steroids
  • At least one month before your procedure, stop steroid injections
  • On the day of your procedure, eat a full, healthy breakfast and be sure to drink plenty of water
  • Please be advised that if you take chronic oral steroids, a discontinuation plan will need to be discussed with your primary care provider as abrupt stoppage may cause side effects. Northeast Knee and Joint Institute do not advise stopping or taking any medication regimens without consulting the doctor who prescribed them to you.

COSMETIC JAWLINE CONTOURING
AFTERCARE

After your treatment session, we recommend that all patients rest on the day of their procedure. We advise limited use of the treatment area for the next two days, but some movement is encouraged. Limited use helps the joint recover as the treatment is absorbed by the area’s surrounding tissues.

0 – 3 days post-procedure guidelines.
After your treatment, there is a chance you’ll experience some mild to moderate pain or discomfort at the treatment site. Discomfort is normal, and it is a sign that your body is healing as it adjusts to the treatment. It is best to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water to help promote healing.

You mustn’t take ANY medications following your procedure unless specifically directed otherwise by a physician. NO medicine is a must because any drug can affect the healing process or other adverse effects.

Therefore, discontinue use of any of these medications post-procedure for best results:

  • Anti-inflammatory medications for at least two weeks post-procedure
  • Blood-thinning herbs, supplements, or vitamins for 3-4 days post-procedure
  • Systematic steroids for two weeks post-procedure
  • Other important guidelines to follow after your procedure are:
  • Avoid applying ice or heat to the injection site for the first 72 hours post-procedure
  • Don’t take a hot bath or go to a sauna for the first few days post-procedure
  • Avoid consumption of any alcoholic beverages for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid showering for the first 24 hours following your procedure
  • Limit caffeine consumption for the first week post-procedure
  • Avoid smoking

3 – 14 days post-procedure guidelines.
At this point in your healing, you should gradually increase your daily activities. 3 to 14 days is also when you can begin exercises. Proper exercise is a vital part of long-term results, and we can help you determine which exercises are best suited for your needs before your procedure.

Ice can be applied 3-4 times a day for 15-20 minutes as needed for comfort
Anti-inflammatory medications (such as Tylenol) can be taken to help manage any residual pain at this time, take as directed
Continue to avoid alcoholic beverages, smoking, or excessive amounts of caffeine

3 – 4 weeks post-procedure guidelines.
We highly encourage you to begin physical therapy to aid in your long-term healing and continued recovery at this point in your healing. A follow-up appointment will be made for you to meet with our physician to review your healing process. You must keep this follow-up visit even if your recovery is going well. If there are any adjustments to your customized treatment plan, this is when our physician will be able to make those decisions.
