Botox, the most popular injectable cosmetic treatment, works through a temporary muscle paralyzing effect that reduces or eliminates unwanted facial expressions. Most of the botox used for this purpose is applied to the forehead and around the eyes.
However, in massaged muscles, several injections of Botox over time can actually reduce the size of these large muscles, improve their appearance, and reduce symptoms of muscle contusion pain.
The use of masseter botox jaw slimming to reduce muscle mass is well described in Korean medical journals. With this ethnic group, it is often desirable to shrink muscles for cosmetic purposes to make the face appear less square.
Botox performed over time is so effective that the surgery used in the past to achieve the same effect of reducing muscle mass and reducing the angle of the mandible is now reserved only for patients who have one that exhibits a true bony prominence as the main cause of the problem. .
Botox injections into the muscles are easy to do. Have the patient clench his teeth and easily see the protruding ridges at the muscle margins. You can usually inject 6 units per swollen area directly into the protruding area, staying closer to the corner of the jaw area and its lower edge to avoid injecting the parotid gland.
Plus, the thickest part of the muscle is already low. It will take about 25-35 units per country to get a good effect. If you run out of bulging injection areas then you have to make sure to inject the front and back muscles in the lower jaw until that number of units.
