Jaw Slimming Botox San Francisco
Botox is an excellent treatment for jaw slimming. If you are considering jaw slimming Botox, you should seek out a facial specialist who is experienced in performing this technique. Jaw-slimming Botox is very effective for patients with large masseter muscles and a wide jaw. Depending on the dose, it should be repeated every 3-6 months. Over time and with repeated treatments, many patients demonstrate a lasting muscle reduction that requires less Botox in the future for the same result. My patients love the results of jaw-slimming because the results are easy to achieve and the treatment is very effective. If your cheeks are especially cherubic and round, you may also be a candidate for buccal fat removal.
Preparation for Jaw Slimming Botox

You should inform Dr. Chiu-Collins before treatment if you are using: Alcohol, Aspirin, Ibuprofen, Vitamin E, Fish Oil, Ginkgo, Green Tea, Garlic, Ginseng, St John’s Wort, or any herbal medications.
You should avoid Aspirin containing products for 10 days before your procedure, and you should avoid NSAIDS (Ibuprofen/Advil/Motrin, Aleve, etc) and herbal supplements for 7 days prior to your treatment.
