What Is Jaw Reduction?
Jaw reduction is a procedure to slim and contour the face to achieve a smoother jawline. A square or less round jawline can be the result of enlarged muscles of mastication, which are muscles used for chewing or clenching the teeth. Grinding or clenching your teeth while asleep commonly causes these muscles to be enlarged, and this procedure uses neuromodulators to reduce the size of these muscles in the jaw.
Neuromodulators commonly used for this treatment include:
A consultation with our team will be the best way to select which of these neuromodulators could be best for you and your treatment goals.
What Could I Expect from a Procedure?
Jaw reduction is a non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure. This outpatient procedure is performed in the comfort of our San Jose office, and there is no set downtime associated with treatment. Results will vary, but they tend to be noticeable within a month, and they can last up to eight months.
This procedure has short treatment sessions involving using a neuromodulator to reduce the muscle size. These neuromodulators are administered via injection.
Am I a Good Candidate?
A consultation with our team in the San Francisco Bay Area is the best way to determine if jaw reduction is right for you. This procedure is recommended to treat jaw lines created from enlarged jaw muscles, but it is not intended to treat facial fullness or other signs of aging. If you are concerned about how aging is affecting your jawline, our team may be able to recommend alternative treatment options.
