What Is Jawline Botox?

at Omniya Clinic in London

Many people are naturally born with a wider jawline. And while some love it, others seek to change it. If you’re considering changing your jawline, a Botox procedure can change a wide jawline to a narrower, v-line jaw. But what causes a wide jawline and how exactly can Botox be used to change its appearance? We’ve got all the answers for you here.

Benefits of jawline Botox

  • Temporary and repeatable procedure
  • Not a painful procedure
  • Non-invasive and non-surgical
  • Significantly reduced complications, compared with jaw reduction surgery
  • Quick procedure – takes 15-30 minutes
  • Significantly cheaper than jaw reduction surgery
  • Results are visible in a matter of weeks

Botox treatment prices start from £200, depending on the practitioner.

What causes a wide jaw?

There isn’t one single reason as to why your jawline may appear wider than you’d ideally like it to look. However, it’s likely to be one of the following reasons:

The mandible: The mandible is the bone that forms the lower jaw. In practical terms, it provides a structure for the chin and jawline.

Fat: There are cases where excessive fat may cause or contribute to a wide or square jawline.

Your skin: While the skin is not the actual cause or creator of a wide jawline, as we age and lose collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, our skin (and jowls) sag, giving the effect of broader jawlines. You can find more information on how we treat sagging skin here.

Masseter: The masseter muscle is responsible for eating and chewing and plays a significant role in facial aesthetics. Large masseter muscles alter facial lines and can potentially cause facial asymmetry or make your face appear squarer in nature.

The masseter muscles are essential for activities such as talking and chewing/eating. In addition to these common activities, we also develop habits like teeth-grinding or jaw-clenching in your sleep. The impact of this is to enlarge the masseter muscles.

Who are jawline Botox procedures for?

As with all cosmetic or elective medical interventions, this question must always be determined by the patient, and not a practitioner. The role of the practitioner is to consider the patient’s requirements or desired results, assess the patient to ensure the results can be achieved, and then to skilfully and carefully administer the treatment.

However, if you do have larger masseters, whether that be from genetics, teeth grinding, biting your nails or clenching your jaw, and would like to discuss this with an expert, we recommend booking in a consultation to discuss this in more detail.

If any habit such as jaw clenching causes you discomfort, like headaches or tension in the face, it may also be sensible to have a consultation with an expert to understand what can be done to tackle this, with or without treatment.
