BOTOX INJECTIONS FOR FACIAL CONTOURING
The judicious application of modern techniques can be used to alter facial shape non-surgically. This applies mainly to the lower face. If the lower jaw muscles (known as the masseter muscles) are big, they will cause the back part of the lower face to look too wide and square, much in the same way that a thick lower jaw bone can cause the same problem.
In this case, Botox is a powerful tool that can significantly reduce the bulk of this muscle by relaxing it, and hence dramatically narrow the lower face. The treatments are fast, safe and effective, and are done every three to six months. After several treatments, some degree of permanent shrinkage of the jaw muscle is achieved, and the treatment intervals become progressively longer.
If the front part of the lower face (the jowl) is bulky or loose, it can be reduced and tightened with the MesoBotox facelift, as described above. Thus, Botox of the jaw muscles and the MesoBotox facelift work synergistically with each other, one reducing the width of the back part of the lower face, while the other produces the same effect in the front part of the lower face. The combined effect of these two treatments is to produce a slimming effect on the lower face, resulting in a more youthful, V-shaped face.
