A common area where this particular botulinum toxin injection technique is applied, as part of facial sculpting and slimming, is into the masseter muscle. A strong or hypertrophic masseter muscle is often referred to as “The Square Jaw”. And here we use the term B*tox to refer to all brands of Botulinum Toxins. We cannot discuss on this webpage the advantages of each of the various brands though.
SCHEDULE FOR SQUARE JAW REDUCTION
Unlike with B*tox 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. B*TOX can weaken the masseter muscle giving a softer angle at the jaw in women who have a squarish face.
