There is a common misconception that people undergo cosmetic surgeries and procedures like Botox only for beautification. You may not know that the jawline slimming process using Botox can be helping people suffering from joint dysfunctions. Applying the Botox injections into the posterior muscles of your jaw, more specifically the masseter muscle will contribute to the gradual reduction in the size of the jaw muscles. With Jawline Botox [ฉีด โบ ท๊ อก ลด กราม, which is the term in Thai] you can get relief from temporomandibular joint dysfunction or the TMJ syndrome.
Cosmetic concerns that get better with Botox
There are two typical conditions where Botox treatment can bring about valuable improvement.
- Jawline and neck definition: Inserting the Botox injections into your posterior jaw muscles will trigger a gradual reduction in the prominence and size of the jaws. As a result, you will get a more defined, refined jawline with a better contour.
- Temporomandibular joint dysfunction: reduction of jaw clenching is possible with the Botox injections into the masseter muscles. It will provide long-term relief from jaw pain and jaw tension. If you are suffering from temporomandibular joint soreness or tension headaches, the Botox injection can be of much help.
Are you the ideal candidate?
The Botox treatment for jawline slimming will be ideal for you if you have an asymmetric jawline or disproportionate jawline due to larger masseter muscles. Teeth clenching, grinding or overuse of the jaw are the common reasons for such deformations. But if you have a prominent jawline due to the large jawbones, then Botox won’t be of much help.
Average recovery time
Minimal side effects is the reason why the Botox procedure for jawline slimming has become so popular. You may feel some minimal tenderness or redness for a few days. Mild irritation while chewing is also a common experience while recovering. But you will hardly take any time to recover as the process is minimally invasive.
