The shape of the face can have a significant impact on the femininity or masculinity and overall appearance of an individual. A wider jaw can appear more masculine and a round face may not have the desirable contours. If you have a wider lower face, you may have larger masseter muscles that make your face rounder. At pēkomd® cosmetic surgery center, we offer Botox® for round face treatment at our clinic in Toledo, OH.
The masseter muscles are the large muscles that give the jaw its powerful chewing capacity. Located on the outside of the lower face, these muscles are necessary for opening and closing the jaw, but they also impact the shape of the face. When they become larger, it can make the face appear round or square. While a wide jaw is often desirable for a masculine appearance, many women want a more tapered jaw for a heart-shaped face. To slim a round face, Botox can be used to reduce the size of the masseter muscles.
Masseter Reduction for a Slimmer Face
Botox works as a cosmetic treatment by relaxing targeted muscles. For lines and wrinkles, Botox can stop muscle contractions that cause lines. For a wide or round face, Botox can be used to relax the masseter muscles. Over time, the masseter muscles can shrink in size, creating a narrower lower face. Masseter reduction can obtain a more feminine, slimmer facial appearance.
Botox injections can be completed in about 20 minutes at our clinic near Bowling Green and Perrysburg. It will take time for the masseter muscles to shrink in size – most people will see results in the months following the treatment. Botox effects last about 3-4 months. If needed, another treatment can be performed after four months to continue narrowing the lower face.
If you want to slim a round face, Botox is a non-invasive option that can be very effective. To learn more about Botox for round face treatment, contact us at pēkomd®. Call our cosmetic surgery and rejuvenation center in Toledo, OH, to schedule your Botox consultation.
