Jawline Slimming with Botox
What is jawline slimming with Botox®?
Jawline slimming with Botox® utilizes strategic Botox® injections into the posterior muscles of the jaw (a.k.a. masseter muscle) to gradually reduce the jaw muscle size over time. In a similar way to a calf reduction with Botox®, jawline slimming with Botox® utilizes the nerve to muscle signal blocking caused by botulinum toxin type A (BoNT-A).
Where to Use Neurotoxin vs. Filler
By blocking the jaw muscles’ ability to contract, over time the masseter muscle will naturally atrophy and decrease in size and prominence. These injections may also help with temporomandibular joint dysfunction (a.k.a. TMJ syndrome) as Botox® reduces clenching, which can cause jaw pain, jaw tension, tension headaches, and soreness.
Botox®, by Allergan, is formulated from an exclusive combination of protective proteins. Botulinum toxin type A is found in many commercially available neurotoxin formulations (such as Dysport®, Jeuveau®, and Xeomin®).
What cosmetic concerns does jawline slimming with Botox® treat?
- Neck & Jawline Definition: Botox® injections into the posterior jaw muscles cause a gradual reduction in size and prominence for a more refined, defined, and contoured jawline.
- Temporomandibular Joint Dysfunction: Botox® injections into the jaw muscles (masseter muscles) reduce jaw clenching which can relieve jaw pain, jaw tension, temporomandibular joint (TMJ) soreness, tension headaches, and provide pain relief from neck and shoulder tension.
Who is the ideal candidate for jawline slimming with Botox®?
Jawline slimming with Botox® is ideal for individuals with an asymmetric or disproportionate jawline due to overly large jaw muscles (masseter muscles). Large jaw muscles can be caused by overuse, grinding, and teeth clenching. Botox® injections can also relieve certain temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders. Botox® is not recommended for men and women with overly large or prominent jaw lines due to large jawbones.
What is the average recovery associated with jawline slimming with Botox®?
A jawline slimming with Botox® procedure typically has minimal side effects such as tenderness, redness, and possibly bruising for a few days. There may be some mild irritation for one week when chewing due to the injections of Botox® into the masseter muscle. To better understand the healing and downtime associated with the procedure, check out our complete guide to neurotoxin recovery.
What are the potential side effects of jawline slimming with Botox®?
Jawline slimming with Botox® causes tenderness, redness, and irritation when chewing. Less common side effects include double vision, muscle weakness, hoarse voice, and trouble breathing.
What can someone expect from the results of jawline slimming with Botox®?
Jawline slimming with Botox® produces gradual results with multiple treatments over the course of months. Botox® injections into the jaw muscle encourage natural atrophying, which will cause a progressive, controlled decrease in the size of the jaw muscles. After the initial series of treatments, maintenance treatments will be needed every eight months.
What is the average cost of jawline slimming with Botox®?
The average cost of jawline slimming with Botox® is $100 to $2,500. The actual cost of the procedure will vary by procedure, location, healthcare provider, and candidate. Learn more in our complete guide to Botox® cost.

What to Expect
Botox treatment reduces the size of the jaw muscles injected, reducing prominent facial muscles and smoothing the facial contour. Here is a quick guide for what to expect before, during, and after jawline slimming with Botox.
- No alcohol 24 hours prior
- No blood thinning medications
- An antiviral medication may be prescribed
- Reschedule if a rash, blemish, or cold sore develops in the area
- Skin will be cleansed and marked for injection
- Botox is injected, typically 15-50 units on each side
- Pressure is applied to the area
Immediately After Treatment
- Temporary soreness, redness, and bruising
- Do not manipulate the injected area or lie down
- Avoid strenuous exercise for 6 hours
Jawline slimming with Botox® utilizes injection directly into the jaw muscles to reduce muscle size and prominence. For those with temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders, Botox® injections into the masseter muscles can reduce clenching alleviating jaw pain, jaw tension, TMJ soreness, and tension headaches. The results are gradual and require multiple initial treatments and maintenance treatments every eight months.
