Botulinum toxin A is a highly efficacious and cost-effective, nonsurgical option for reducing the width and shape of the lower face and jawline. The results can vary from the subtlest thinning of the face to an extremely thin, cachectic appearance. Many nuances can be achieved. The administration is simple, and the process takes barely 5 minutes in an office setting. Botulinum toxin A can also be effectively used to reduce the bulk of an enlarged parotid gland without affecting saliva production.
Botox can be used to slim and contour the face. Doctors achieve this by targeting the masseter muscles at the back of the jaw. These muscles can give the face a square shape. The results may take up to 3 weeks post-treatment and may last around 6 months
Dermatologist will do a brief visual assessment of the area to be treated, he or she will palpate the area to be treated, manually isolate the muscles, and then do a series of two to three injections to each side of the lower face.
The procedure shouldn’t take more than a few minutes and the pain level is low. “Most patients don’t even really notice much discomfort at all.
While facial slimming with Botox is a relatively low-risk procedure, there are potential side effects that can occur. Which includes headache, redness, muscle weakness, muscle stiffness, dry mouth etc.
