San Jose-Masseter Reduction-Jaw Reshaping
Injectable treatments are now used for a wide range of enhancements, and not just for wrinkle and crease relaxation.
This young woman wanted to reduce the size of the masseter muscles (jaw muscles), which she felt were overly prominent, as well as uneven.
Dr. Lepore injected Botox into the areas, which has the effect of relaxing the muscle, and actually reducing its prominence. Our patient noted a significant softening of the angle of her jaw.
Botox injections, on average, need to be repeated after 3 to 4 months. Juvederm injections may last from 6 months, to a year.
