Botox®, Dysport™, Xeomin for Jawline Contouring
The Andent Egyptian Queen Nefertiti has been referred to as one of the most beautiful women to have ever lived. Images ofNefertiti generally bring to mind a graceful neck and sculpted jawline, based on the famed 3,300-year-old bust found in Egypt in 1912 and now displayed in Berlin. By combining “Nefertiti neck lift” procedure, with jaw muscle reduction using neurotoxin, we can increase the definition of the mandible, in selected patients.
What are they?
Botox (Allergan), Dysport (Ipsen), and Xeomin (Merz) are all injectable nerve modulator, meaning they can temporarily reduce the activity of targeted muscle.
Each brand has a slightly different formulation of the same substance, Botulinum Toxin A. They all work the same way, blocking the nerve impulses of the injected muscles to temporarily reduce muscle contraction.
The platysma musde is a neck and lower facial skin depressor muscle.It originates at the lower face and ends at the chest. Release of the downward pull of the platysma will allow the faical elevator muscles to elevate the sagging skin over the lower face and more dearly define the mandibular border. This is call the Nefertiti neck lift.
Naturally when the nervous stimulation of muscle is reduced, the muscle will undergo a reversible process call atrophy and result in reduction of muscle size. Applying this principle , we can reduce the size of the muscle over the corner of our jaw ( Maseeter muscle to achieve a slimmer jaw.
By a combination of these 2 methods or seletively chooing one of these, we can achives a slim and defined jawline.
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin are safe for all skin types and skin colors. However, people who are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have any neurological diseases should not use these injectables unless approved by a qualified cosmetic doctor.
This procedure is only suitable for patients with poorly defined due to sagging facial skin and/or large jaw muscle.
What should I expect during the treatment?
During the treatment, Ice will be used to numb each injection point beforehand. A very fine needle is injected into each specific muscle for a few seconds with only the minor discomfort of a tiny pinch. For ultra-sensitive types, topical anesthetic cream can be applied beforehand if necessary.
15 to 20 minutes
You may experience slight redness or swelling at the injection sites, but only momentarily, so you can go about your normal activities immediately after receiving treatment. Uncommonly, you may also have slight bruising at the injection site, but nothing that a little concealer can’t hide.
The full effects won’t appear for about 2 weeks. It may take as long as a month for results to peak on areas with stronger muscles, particularly in men.
At full throttle, your jaw line will be more defined and slimmer. These results tend to last 4 to 6 months, at which point the muscle movement gradually returns result diminish after 4-6 months, but often less severe than before because the muscle is being trained to relax more.
For optimal results, schedule touch-ups every 4 to 6 months, according to how your skin responds to the treatment. The good news: intervals between treatments may widen over time because your muscles will become more relaxed and require less maintenance.
