We can do facial slimming using Botox/Dysport injections into the masseter muscle, a chewing muscle located at the angle of the jaw. Botox/Dysport injections reduce the size of the masseter muscle. This helps achieve facial slimming, changing an exceedingly square face to some more attractive oval or heart-shaped face.
An under-projected chin is often a feature that someone is born with. Dr. Perlis can perform nonsurgical chin augmentation for many patients looking to balance their facial features and improve their profile.
As we age, the jawbone decreases in size, and the area around the mouth and jaw increasingly loses fat. Such changes create fine lines and wrinkles around the lips and jowls, obscuring the chin. Dr. Perlis uses injectable fillers around the mouth and chin to make the face fuller and more youthful.
A hyperactive mentalis muscle often causes the chin to be less prominent than desired, which can create an unwanted dimpled chin. Dr. Perlis uses Botox and Dysport injections to relax the mentalis muscle and project the chin. This treatment creates a balanced profile. Injectable fillers used in conjunction with Botox for non-surgical chin augmentation are a frequent procedure for both men and women.
The angle and definition of a patient’s jaw is a key feature in a balanced and attractive profile. Dr. Perlis uses Botox or Dysport to craft a well-defined jaw without making it overly prominent, which requires years of expertise and a trained eye.
