Injectable jaw reduction is where a neutraliser is injected into the muscles of the jaw (called the masseter muscle) to reduce its size. In some ethnicities, patients have a tendency to develop overly square facial features. This can reduce the overall size of the masseter muscle, allowing for improved facial proportions in a noninvasive manner.
Skin Renewal's special technique of injection makes this a pain free and bruise free experience. Many patients come on lunch breaks to have this procedure done and are able to return to the office immediately after. Patients typically notice softening of the masseter muscle at one week and softening of the jawline at 6 weeks. Some researchers have noticed "permanent changes" to the jawline after 2-3 treatments. However, it is reasonable for patients to expect long term benefit but not permanent changes.
