How to Use Botox to Make Your Face Look Thinner
You've been hitting the gym and eating right. But you're frustrated because no matter how hard you work, your face just never seems to achieve the thinner look you've been hoping for.
A wider-looking face could be due to your masseter muscles. These are the muscles that get hard when you clench your jaw. But a simple Botox technique could be all it takes to make your face look thinner.
How does it work? Well, I've been injecting Botox in my San Francisco office for as long as it's been on the market. In that time, I've learned some pretty cool tricks. Botox works by weakening and thinning the muscles, which is why you look less wrinkled after getting Botox. When I inject Botox into your masseter muscles, they become less prominent and create a slightly slimming effect for your face.
This is one of my favorite ways to use Botox for my busy patients in San Francisco's financial district. In addition to slimming their faces and smoothing the wrinkles around their eyes and forehead, they can come in on their lunch hour and be back at the office within 30 minutes with no evidence of having any "work done."
The masseter muscles are pretty large, so you don't have to worry about this procedure affecting your ability to chew, smile, yell, etc. Your muscle abilities will remain intact, however, your face will look thinner, especially at the jaw line.
The full effects of the Botox injections will be seen in about one week and will last 3-4 months. Injecting Botox is the masseter muscles is not very painful because thick.
No amount of diet or exercise will ever cause your jaw muscles to go away. Botox is an effective and easy way to complete your ideal "look." If you are one of those people who would benefit from a slightly thinner looking face, please contact my patient care coordinator, Caroline, at 415-362-1846.
