If you want to transform your chin or jawline and change the shape of your face, we can do so without the need for surgery or long downtime with injectables. Both Botox and dermal fillers can be used to create the jawline of your dreams, whether you want your face to be slimmer or a more defined jawline. If you are not happy with your square-shaped jawline or you have sagging skin, consider a jawline reduction or reshaping.
How Jawline Reduction Treatment Can Help You Get a Slimmer Face
You may have over-developed jaw muscles, called masseters, which can lead to a square-looking jawline. This may be caused by excessive teeth grinding or overuse of the jaw. If you want a slimmer face, we can use small injections of Botox along the masseter muscle, weakening the muscle so that it shrinks. This will result in your face looking thinner and sharper by achieving the reverse triangular or V-line shape. This procedure is particularly popular in Asia where a slimmer face is coveted and considered more youthful and beautiful. Surgical shaving of the jawbones is invasive, irreversible, can have a long downtime and an extensive recovery period. Hence why non-surgical jawline reduction has become so popular.
Other Ways to Change the Jawline
If you want to give more structure to your jawline or want to combat sagging skin and jowls, we can use dermal fillers made of hyaluronic acid to cosmetically sculpt your lower face without surgery. Jawline reshaping using facial fillers is safe, effective and affordable without any downtime. The whole process takes around 30 minutes and you can return to work right after the procedure. If you have a lot of excess fat under the chin, you may want to consider fat dissolving injections.
Am I a Good Candidate for the Procedure?
Jawline reduction and reshaping is a procedure well tolerated by most people regardless of age, race or gender. A strong, square jawline is wanted by most male clients — which we can achieve with dermal fillers — while many of our female clients prefer a slimmer, more feminine shape to their face. Whatever your personal needs, you can discuss it with the doctor to see how we can give you the face shape of your dreams
Before and After Photos for Jawline Reduction Treatment
Our client above came to the clinic looking to improve the shape of her jawline. Using carefully injected dermal fillers, we were able to turn her dream of a chiselled jawline into a reality. Under the skilful hand of an experienced clinician, the indistinctive jawline was shaped with finesse to give a more structured mandibular angle. The final result left our happy client with a sharp jawline and model look.
How Long Until I See Results?
Jawline reduction using Botox involves injections of the toxin into the masseter muscles on each side of the face. It takes approximately two to four weeks for the masseters to reduce in size and, therefore, slim down the jawline. The effects can last up to six months depending on many factors like genetics, metabolism and lifestyle.
If using dermal fillers to reshape the jawline, the results will appear within a couple of weeks and can last up to 18 months. If you and the doctor decide to use a combination therapy using both Botox and dermal fillers, you will need to come in for a top-up of the Botox at the six-month mark. At this point, we can see how your results are progressing. Keep in mind that none of these options for jawline reshaping is permanent, so results may vary.
