Jaw Reduction with Botox or Dysport
An angular jaw can give the appearance that the face is square. A square appearing jaw is often a result of the overdevelopment of the masseter muscle along the jaw line. Treatment of a portion of this muscle with a neuromudulator such as Botox or Dysport is used to give the face a slimmer appearance. Jaw reduction can be performed with Botox or Dysport. Placing these products in precise locations along the muscle, can result in a slimmer appearing face that is less square in appearance. Many patients choose to have this performed as it is a non-invasive method to improve their appearance.
To refine the appearance of the face from a more square appearance to a slimmer, more tapered appearance by reducing the fullness at the jaw line.
Jaw reduction using Botox or Dysport is a non-invasive procedure that is done in the comfort of our office.
Topical anesthesia cream can be used, but is not necessary. Dr. Steiger uses the smallest possible syringes in order to achieve a virtually painless experience.
