Botox for Wrinkles and Contouring

Injections can raise your jawline and improve the appearance of people with sagging chins. A strong mentalis muscle contributes to a weaker and blunted-looking chin, and Injection acts on nerves to relax muscles and prevent them from tightening.

Is it possible to use Botox to change the shape of your face? Botox can be used to slim and shape the face in addition to reducing the appearance of frown lines and wrinkles. The masseter muscles in the lower jaw are the ones the doctor will focus on to achieve this. A squarer shape may result from the use of these muscles.

The name for this technique is “masseter reduction.”

Masseter Botox describes Botox injections made in the masseter muscle. Jaw Botox is another name for it. Botulinum toxin is used in the treatment to temporarily prevent nerve signals from being transmitted to the masseter. Therefore, the muscle is paralyzed.

Facial plastic surgeon Dr. Gary Linkov of New York City, states that the masseters are the muscles involved in chewing and span the middle to lower face.

Nighttime teeth grinding, often known as bruxism, can enlarge these muscles.

A dramatic change in facial contour may result from Botox injections into these muscles.

Stages Of Wrinkle Formation

What happens when we age is that we go from:

Stage 1: No wrinkles when we express ourselves to

Stage 2: Wrinkles when we express ourselves and eventually going on to
Stage 3: Resting wrinkles which are always there even when we do not express ourselves.

 

And how does this occur? It occurs through a series of mimicry, repetitive movements that results in the muscles growing bigger and stronger which pushes the skin together to create deep resting lines and we do not want that because this can occur across our forehead, over the frown lines, around the sides of the eyes, the areas near the chin and even resulting in part of our jaw looking a lot more squarish.

Which Areas Can BTX Target?

Forehead lines are a worthy target for Botox treatment because of the dynamic nature of the wrinkles they create. Botox can be injected into the area between your eyes on your forehead. Botox injections for the brow address horizontal and vertical wrinkles between the eyes. The injections relax the muscles that cause wrinkles to appear.

BOTOX for Crow’s Feet Method – How Does BOTOX for Crow’s Feet Work? BOTOX is a quick (10-minute) treatment that acts beneath the skin’s surface. It temporarily lowers underlying muscle activity in adults that causes crow’s feet, forehead wrinkles, and moderate to severe frown lines to improve their appearance.

Preventing Wrinkle Progression:

  • Frown lines which give off an angry vibe

  • Forehead lines that make us look aged

  • Crow’s feet near the eyes that make us look old

  • Marionette lines along the corners of the mouth that make us look sad

  • Cobblestoning near the chin that make us look grumpy

Botox For Contouring

Botox can partially relax the masseter muscles, leading to a more pronounced V-shape face or v lines. Botox works to trim the jawline by decreasing the size of the underlying muscles. As a result, your cheekbones will be more prominent, and your V-line will be more noticeable, giving the appearance of a slimmer, younger face.

People of Asian heritage and those with large mandibles are the most typical clients for surgery to slim the jawline. In addition to relieving discomfort, this surgery can also treat tooth grinding (bruxism), which frequently comes from excess pressure in highly developed masseters. 

Contouring of Face and Body:

  • Lower face contouring where we can achieve a more V shaped look by Jaw Botox

  • Isolated neck bands whenever we tense our neck that are unsightly

  • Calves contouring
     

Medical Indications:

How Long Do The Results Last?

The results last between 4- 8 months, depending on individual. Results that we seek are always a smooth natural look.

Botox can be used to remodel your jawline. If you have an overly broad face at the jaws, the perpetrators are most likely your masseter muscles, also known as chewing muscles.

These muscles can get more apparent as you age, giving a woman’s face a more masculine appearance. So, by injecting Botox into these muscles, you can slim down your face and give it a more feminine, symmetrical appearance. Chewing muscles weaken over time due to frequent Botox injections, resulting in a smaller jawline.

Unlike more traditional jawline recontouring procedures, which involve invasive and complicated techniques like shaving the jaw bone and removing the muscle or outer layer of the lower jaw, Botox jawline contouring is non-surgical and non-invasive means you can resume your normal activities in just a few days, after treatment.

Dr Sin Yong Recommendations

Because of its neurotoxin nature, Botox can bind to and block cues moving along nerve endings. This prevents the release of acetylcholine, the neurotransmitter that usually causes muscular contractions. Botox injections, to put it more simply, temporarily relax the facial muscles that underlie and cause wrinkles. This treatment also loosens those underlying muscles that contribute to manly jawlines.

Those who want to get rid of dynamic wrinkles, such as frown lines and crow’s feet, generated by the contraction of underlying muscles can safely get Botox injections. It is recommended that patients between 18 and 70 get Botox because the treatment has the best results in younger patients. To ensure their skin is still elastic enough to respond to therapy, Time Freeze Laser Lift does well to address the skin.
