Is Botox Jawline FDA-Approved?

Botox Jawline FDA-Approved

The jawline is a key feature of your face, and the sharp, chiseled appearance that many men and women want to achieve sends a message that you are confident, strong, and successful. But not everyone’s facial structure is suited for a sharp, chiseled look. Fortunately, injectable treatments can offer an attractive and effective noninvasive solution for those who are frustrated by their square-shaped lower faces and weak, feminine jawlines.

The most common and best-known injectable treatment for slimming the jawline is BOTOX(r), but the injection technique and results vary from practitioner to practitioner. It is important to choose a highly trained and credentialed injection specialist at a reputable medspa or cosmetic surgery practice to ensure that your injectables are applied safely and effectively, with consideration for your facial features and proportions.

For example, the FDA has only approved the use of botox for jawline to soften the 11 lines between the brows and reduce forehead wrinkles, but many experienced injectors will also use neuromodulators off-label (those that are not specifically marketed by their brand name) in other areas such as the masseter muscles. When injected precisely into the masseter muscle, Botox or other neuromodulators can cause the muscle to relax and shrink over time, leading to enhanced facial contour, reduced teeth grinding, and a more slimmed-down jawline.

Injections into the masseter muscles can also help those who clench or grind their teeth, a condition known as bruxism. The repetitive action of clenching and grinding can lead to cracked or broken teeth, a sore jaw, and a host of other symptoms. By reducing the strength of the jaw muscles, Botox or other neuromodulators offer a quick and painless way to relieve these symptoms and slim the jawline.

Another great advantage of this type of jawline contouring is that it offers a much more gradual result than surgical options for this area. Because the masseter muscles are relaxed and shrink over time, the result is more natural and resembles the body’s normal reshaping process than a dramatic change from surgery.

Because these results are gradual, the masseter muscle will retrain itself over time to shrink again. This can prolong the effect, but eventually, the result will fade without any need for repeated sessions.

The resulting slimming of the jawline will create a more defined, sexier silhouette for most patients. While this treatment does not reduce submental fullness, like KYBELLA(r), it can give the neck and jawline a striking, more sculpted appearance that perfectly frames and enhances your other features. And unlike invasive surgical procedures, this noninvasive treatment is quick, easy, and extremely cost-effective. Typically, it can be performed in one visit at a doctor’s office or a medspa, and there is no recovery downtime required. Some mild bruising or swelling may occur after treatment, but these effects typically resolve within a few days.
