By: Morgan Allen, BSN, RN


BOTOX is a popular procedure used to improve the appearance of wrinkles. But did you know that BOTOX can also slim down your face and reduce a square jawline? The Med Spa Of North Texas are experts in cosmetic injectables and can help you achieve the youthful and more contoured look you desire.

Below, board-certified dermatologist Dr. George Wooming explains how BOTOX wrinkle relaxers work and what is involved in the treatment process. Contact our cosmetic team in Allen, TX today to schedule your consultation.

What causes a square jawline?

A wide jaw is a common aesthetic concern among men and women. It occurs when the masseter muscle (the muscle responsible for chewing) becomes enlarged due to excess muscle movement. Some surgical procedures can improve your appearance, but they are not always necessary. Injectables like BOTOX provide significant improvements with far less risk and downtime.

How does BOTOX work?

BOTOX works by temporarily reducing muscle activity. Though BOTOX is most commonly used to treat Crow’s feet, forehead lines, and frown lines, this technique can also prevent the growth of the masseter muscle. Treatment slims down the face and creates a slimmer and more oval-shaped appearance.

There are many reasons to consider BOTOX wrinkle relaxers for a square jawline. Some benefits include:

  • Minimal risk and downtime: Cosmetic injectables do not require incisions or long recovery times to be effective.

  • Quick treatment: The entire process can be completed in less than an hour at our clinic. Patients return home or to work almost immediately afterward.

  • Proven results: BOTOX has been proven to be an effective treatment for a wide variety of concerns.

What is the treatment process like?

Dr. Wooming uses a very small needle to inject BOTOX into the desired area. However, all treatments begin with a consultation at The Med Spa Of North Texas to ensure BOTOX is safe for your goals. This consultation also gives you the opportunity to ask questions and learn more about what to expect from the process in Allen, TX.

Injections only take a few minutes and should not cause too much discomfort. You may experience a pinch, but this sensation is very well tolerated among patients. Our team then provides a set of aftercare instructions to help you get the most out of treatment. This information includes details on when to expect BOTOX results and how to keep your outcomes long-term.

What are the results?

The effects of wrinkle relaxers vary depending on the individual. However, most people see a noticeable reduction in muscle activity and an improvement in their appearance within a short period. Patients at The Med Spa Of North Texas often enjoy results from cosmetic injectables for up to four months. BOTOX treatments can be repeated as necessary to maintain your outcomes.
