V-Shaped Face

Having a well-defined, sleek profile is believed to provide a more youthful and refined appearance. And it is fairly common for men and women to desire a V-shaped face or a slimmer jawline to achieve a more appealing look.

In aesthetic clinics Singapore as well as in other countries in Asia, Botulinum Toxin has been widely used to be injected in the masseter muscles (muscles used for chewing) to chisel angular jaws resulting in a “slimmer” face.

Botulinum Toxin Jaw Reduction

A US FDA-approved treatment for forehead wrinkles, Botulinum Toxincan also used to slim down the jaw effectively. Botulinum Toxin jaw reduction is a nonsurgical way to taper a prominent jawline or soften a rectangular face which is a preferred alternative to traditonal jaw reduction surgery. The procedure results in a slimmer jawline and a more attractive facial contour.

Having a Botulinum Toxin injection is also more affordable than having a jaw reduction surgery. Furthermore, it requires no downtime so patients can return to their daily routines immediately after the procedure.

Botulinum Toxin Jaw Reduction: How it Works and What to Expect

A prominent jawline is mainly due to enlarged masseter muscles. Botulinum Toxin can address this concern by relaxing and shrinking these muscles. In aesthetic clinics Singapore, Botulinum Toxin is carefully injected at each side of the jaw to reduce and enhance the appearance of a wide or square face, providing a noticeable slimming and softening effect that helps create an attractive V-shaped facial profile.

If you’re looking to have Botulinum Toxin Singapore, be sure to have it in a reputable Botulinum Toxin clinic because it is a procedure that requires the expertise of a skilled and certified skin specialist with the necessary expertise in this non-surgical jaw reduction technique.

During the procedure, which can be completed in as little as 10 minutes, your skin doctor Singapore will inject the product into your masseter muscles and once injected, Botulinum Toxin will block the activity of the said muscles, eventually causing them to relax.  The desired outcomes such as visible enhancement and slimming of the jawline can be expected one to two weeks after the treatment.

Since a nonsurgical facelift treatment like Botulinum Toxin jaw reduction requires no downtime, you may resume your daily activities immediately. Botulinum Toxin side effects such as bruising or redness of the treatment area usually subside on their own in a day or two.

Combining Botulinum Toxin Jaw Reduction with Dermal Fillers

To achieve optimal results, your doctor may recommend dermal filler injections to go with your Botulinum Toxin treatment.  Dermal fillers are mostly made up of hyaluronic acid, a natural substance found in the body.

At Cutis Medical Laser Clinics Singapore, dermal fillers may be used in the chin area to reshape the chin creating an enhanced V-shape and facial contour. The facial fillers are administered utilizing a special injection technique that requires fewer injection points.
