“Did you do something? Your face looks more 3D.”, asked a colleague. I was surprised that she had noticed the subtle difference. But no, I did not do anything drastic. Just a simple procedure and guess what it is?
If there has to be just 1 aesthetic procedure I could do, then it has to be jaw botox slimming! I have squarish jaws no thanks to huge masseter muscle. And having a big and squarish face just squishes my self-esteem and makes me so self-conscious of my face, especially when it comes to taking photos. However, after jaw botox, I no longer need to worry!
So one and a half years ago, I had my warts and moles removed as well as jaw botox with Dr Tan. Now, I’m back to Nu Reflections Medical Aesthetic clinic to get my jaw botox done again. It is just approximately three weeks and I can already see the difference.
Non surgical jaw reduction by botox is something very common and popular, with many opting for this procedure because it is not only non-invasive and does not require any downtime. Office workers are going for lunch time quick fixes at the clinic because it does not take long, probably 20 to 30 minutes the most, including consultation.
So what is jaw botox all about? It is a simple procedure that involves botox being injected into the masseter muscle to relax it, thus, creating a slimmer jawline over time. This works exceptionally well with those who have huge muscles along the jawline, as you can really see a significant reduction in the jaw line.
One can expect to see results approximately 3 to 4 weeks, though it differs from individual to individual. Jaw botox is temporary and usually lasts for around 6-8 months, this is also dependent on the individual. A touch up every 4-6 months would be recommended to retain your slim new look.
If you are interested in achieving a slimmer face, you may check with Dr Ivan Tan on which procedures are suitable for you. He charges S$50-80 per consultation. Treatment pricing starts from S$600 & above, depending on how many units of botox is required.
