Jawline Slimming with Botox

Whether you’re a man or woman, the desire for a well-defined and sculpted jawline is something that has gained a lot of popularity in recent years. A strong, chiseled jawline is often associated with youth and attractiveness. While surgical procedures like jawline contouring and liposuction have traditionally been used to achieve this look, for patients looking to avoid surgical intervention, especially on such a sensitive area, there are actually a number of interesting alternatives. As one of the Long Island’s premiere aesthetic experts, Dr. Khiani often recommends patients consider a non-surgical alternative, known as jawline slimming with Botox – by far one of the most popular injectable treatments in aesthetics!

What is Jawline Slimming with Botox?

Jawline slimming with Botox, often known as the “Nefertiti Lift” in reference to the iconic Egyptian queen’s elegant jawline, is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure. It involves the strategic injection of a neuromodulator like Botox along the jawline, in order to create a slimmer, more well-defined appearance.

How Does it Work?

As in all cases, Botox works by temporarily relaxing the muscles it targets. In the case of jawline slimming, it is injected into the masseter muscles, which are responsible for chewing and clenching. Over time, considering how much they’re used on a daily basis, these muscles can become overdeveloped, leading to a wider or square-shaped jawline. By selectively weakening these muscles and causing a temporary stifling of their natural contractions, Botox allows the jawline to appear more tapered and refined.

Benefits of Jawline Slimming with Botox

When it comes to the Nefertiti Lift, patients all across the country are becoming fans – both for its impeccable results, as well as its ability to provide results, without any invasive means or any long downtime period for recovery. Some of the main benefits of this procedure include:

  • Non-Surgical: One of the most significant advantages is that it’s a non-surgical procedure, meaning no incisions, anesthesia, or downtime are required.
  • Quick and Convenient: The procedure is relatively quick, often taking around 15-30 minutes, and patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately afterward.
  • Natural-Looking Results: When performed by a skilled practitioner, jawline slimming with Botox can produce subtle, natural-looking results that enhance the contours of the face without appearing overdone.
  • Temporary: Botox is not permanent, so if a patient wishes to return to their previous jawline appearance, they can do so as the effects wear off over several months.

Are You a Good Candidate?

Candidates for jawline slimming with Botox typically include individuals with overdeveloped masseter muscles who desire a more slender jawline. It is important for patients to have realistic expectations and consult with a qualified medical professional, like Dr. Khiani, prior to receiving treatment, in order to determine if this procedure is suitable for them.
