Having an oval-shaped face is regarded as a sign of facial beauty and attractiveness in women. In some cases however, the jawline may appear too broad as a result of over-developed masseter muscles.

While genes do play a role in how wide the jawline is, other factors such as overworking of the masseter muscles also contribute and this is seen in people who clench their jaw or grind their teeth involuntarily (bruxism).

Asides the associated pain and discomfort, headaches as well as negative dental effects in both sexes, this habit also results in a rather unflattering square masculine appearance of the jaws in women due to the resultant hypertrophy of the muscles of mastication.

Fortunately, this effect can be lessened with the use of botox. Botox for jawline slimming works by partially relaxing the masseter muscles, weakening them over time and thereby reducing their size and enhancing the cheekbone-jawline balance to create a slender and more youthful look. In addition, it also helps to reduce clenching and in some cases, the associated headaches. The effects of this treatment can be seen after about 8 weeks and can last from 3 to 6 months.

The Botox for jawline slimming procedure is carried out by trained aesthetic practitioners who carefully inject small amounts of botox into the masseters on both sides of the face.

Derma Institute teaches our delegates this technique in our 2-Day Combined Botox and Filler Course. Our training emphasizes on taking a holistic view of the treatment, to include patient expectations, and ensure safety and optimum results.


Even though botox is conventionally known for its use in treating wrinkles and fine lines, it is becoming increasingly popular for its benefits in other areas such as jawline slimming.

Many patients would rather opt for non invasive, safer and cost effective procedures with little to no downtime.

As such, aesthetic practitioners who are trained in botox for jawline slimming are able to cater to the high demand for this procedure.

Also, because the results of botox for jawline slimming can take a relatively longer time to be visible, practitioners can count on a greater revenue from adding this procedure to their treatment portfolio.
