What causes a square jaw?
The masseters are two muscles found on each side of the angle of your jaw. They serve as muscles of mastication, which means they help you to chew. The other muscle groups that perform this function are the temporalis muscles and the pterygoid muscles.
In a condition known as bruxism (excessive chewing or grinding at night), the masseters at the jawline can grow in bulk( making the jaws to look square), much like how body builders pump their muscles.
Therefore, injecting Botox to relax the muscles is effective in causing the muscles to atrophy( reduce in size), hence inducing a slimmer contour to the face.
How is it done?
Botox is injected into the masseters on each side of the face and spread out at multiple points within the muscle. It is effective, with minimal pain and no downtime. The procedure is non surgical procedure, and the face sliming effect is seen at any time between 4 to 6 weeks.
What are side effects?
In the first week, there may be a slight ache over the jaw, especially with chewing. This should be transient. You should abstain from massaging the muscles and from lying down for 4 hours after the procedure.
