Jaw Botox Treatment

What is Jaw Botox?

Instead of targeting wrinkles, it helps individuals pursue a “V-shaped” face by reducing the size of the jaw muscles a.k.a the masseters.

Large jaw muscles may cause one’s face shape to appear more squarish. Botox relaxes the jaw muscle which then undergoes disuse atrophy and shrinks in size.

Teeth grinding (Bruxism) is also improved with Jaw Botox because relaxation of the masseters will reduce the incidence of subconscious teeth grinding (especially at night).

How does Jawline Reduction / Slimming Botox Work in Singapore?

Masseter muscle Botox works by blocking signals from the nerves to the muscles.

When the signals are blocked, muscle contraction is reduced, helping to relax the muscles and preventing strong muscle contractions at key areas.

Jaw Botox Treatment Experience in Singapore

Botox is injected into the target muscle using extremely tiny needles.

The sensation feels like small ant bites.

Before injection, Dr. Edwin will discuss with you the dosage and points of injection for the best results.

Is Jaw Botox Treatment Painful?
Cold ice will be applied to the area just before injecting Botox for jaw reduction to minimize discomfort and reduce the risk of bruising.

Whilst the thought of injections may be scary for Botox first-timers, good hands, and proper injection technique will significantly reduce pain and discomfort.
What can I Expect after Jaw Botox Treatment?
After treatment, small Botox “bumps” may be observed at the injection sites.

These “bumps” will disappear in 2 to 4 hours and patients are advised not to apply pressure on these bumps.

Some patients may experience small bruises, especially when injecting around delicate areas such as the eye.

It is recommended to apply our Intensive Recovery Cream post Jaw Botox treatment and most bruises will subside after 5 to 7 days.

When can Results be Seen?

Jaw Botox results will be seen after 1 month as time is required for the jaw muscles to shrink in size.

Teeth grinding (Bruxism) will be improved in 2-3 weeks.

Results last between 4 to 6 months.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the potential risks involved with jaw botox treatment?

Masseter Jaw Botox slimming is generally considered a safe treatment if done by an experienced and certified doctor. However, it is possible for the procedure to cause side effects such as:

  • Mild redness or swelling at the injection sites
  • Bruising
  • Pain
  • Crooked smile (rare)
  • Drooling (rare)

These side effects can be temporary and may subside after a few hours or few days. However, jaw slimming treatment can be risky if the botox is not carefully injected as there are many neighbouring muscles that can be accidentally targeted and relaxed during jaw botox.

Who is an ideal candidate for masseter muscle botox?

Masseter reduction is highly recommended to patients who have a square and broad jawline and would like to sharpen and slim their lower face. Other indications include:

  • People who clench or grind their teeth (bruxism) can certainly benefit from masseter botox.
