Men with a square jaw may have an attractive overall appearance. However, this same contour on a woman appears as a more masculine trait. The female facial contours are often more attractive when they naturally have a more oval or heart-shaped, angular jawline. Because of this, women who are looking to reduce the contours of the jaw with jaw reduction will often find that cosmetic injectables such as Botox can provide them with nonsurgical results. Dr. Edmund Kwan of New York City is available to help women achieve a more beautiful jawline!
Botox is an injectable treatment that uses the botulinum toxin type A to address muscle contractions. It is often used for the treatment of dynamic wrinkles on the face that are caused by muscle contractions, such as crow’s feet, glabellar lines, or frown lines on the upper forehead. However, Botox can also be used to reduce contraction of the masseter muscles, which are the muscles of the jaw used for clenching, opening, and closing the jaw. In some women, having enlarged masseter muscles can create a more square and masculine jawline.
