A common area where this technique is applied as part of facial sculpting is the masseter muscle. A strong or hypertrophied masseter muscle is often referred to as “the square jaw“.
SCHEDULE FOR SQUARE JAW REDUCTION
Unlike with Botox in other areas, muscle atrophy does not appear until after about 1 month. Subsequent injections are usually 4-6 months apart or 2-3 times a year. Lasting atrophy which we initially thought would occur seldom happens.
THE SQUARE JAW
The strong jawline can actually look good on men. In fact even the band of muscle below the eye also gives a somewhat manly character. But it’s a different matter if the aim is to have a demure feminine face. BOTOX can weaken the masseter muscle giving a softer angle at the jaw in women who have a squarish face.
