The mechanism in which Botox works to reduce the structure of the jaw is simple: through the inject of Botulinum Toxin, the masseter and chewing muscles become weaker and paralyzed, and therefore, the bulky and inflamed appearance begins to subside.
The procedure itself is very quick, effective, and painless. One of our medical professionals will make three small injections on each side of the jaw, and patients can be in and out of our clinic in 20 minutes.
