Non-Surgical Jawline Shaping with Botox – Stephen Weber MD, FACS – Denver, Colorado – Lone Tree
Are you looking for a non-surgical way to soften and slim the lower face? Botox might just be your answer!
Today, we have Botox, which is a miracle treatment for reducing unwanted muscle contraction that results in facial lines and wrinkles. It can also be used to soften and reduce the size of the masseter muscle. The result is a more narrow, feminine and slender lower face. Results last 4-6 months or longer in most cases.
Are you bothered by a wide, masculine-looking jaw?
The masseter muscle is one of the two major jaw clenching or chewing muscles. Contraction of the masseter results in jaw clenching or chewing motions. Some activities like eating nuts, chewing gum or consuming alot of chewy meat can result in hypertrophy or thickening of this muscle and consequent widening of the jawline. In other cases, women are just born with larger masseter muscles that give the appearance of a wider, stronger jaw or more masculine looking lower face. Historically, surgery to reduce the wide jaw has been very invasive with significant risks and prolonged downtime.
Complications of Botox treatment are mild and infrequent.
Botox injection complications are related to placement of the product in the wrong muscle or diffusion of Botox into a muscle that one did not intend to treat. For this reason, complications are uncommon in the hands of an experienced physician injector. Allergy to Botox is discussed but this is not something I have witnessed.
Who should you see for further information?
In the great state of Colorado, anyone with a “medical director” can be “certified” as an injectionist. In many cases, these “practitioners” have minimal training and should not be let anywhere near your beautiful face! You might also encounter Internists, Gynecologists or Dentists who see an opportunity to supplement their income by administering Botox, a drug that they were never formally trained to treat patients with. Don’t risk your face to save a buck. It’s just not worth it.
I have not only performed over 5000 Botox injections in my career but I have trained at least five dozen injectors in the Denver area and other parts of the US. You need to be treated by an expert. You should be treated by the expert who also teaches other injectors how to use Botox, Juvederm, Voluma, Volbella and Kybella safely.
It would be my pleasure to meet with you and discuss more specifically what Botox can do for you. You can also call my office (303) 792-2224 to discuss with one of my staff at your covenience. I look forward to meeting you soon to discuss Botox non-surgical jawline shaping.
