BOTOX ® Cosmetic, which is well known for treating wrinkles and frown lines, is also ideal for facial contouring. Dr. Usha Rajagopal uses BOTOX ® for non-invasive facial and jaw line contouring and slimming. Angular jaw lines and round faces are very common facial features, especially in Asian ethnicities and particularly in individuals of Korean, Chinese, and Japanese decent. In Asia, jaw bone reduction surgery has been increasing in popularity for slimming down prominent, round faces. Instead of undergoing invasive and complicated jaw bone reduction surgery, using BOTOX ® injections to slim and contour the face and jaw line requires no downtime afterward for the patient and it is safer, faster, and less expensive alternative to surgery. The full slimming effect becomes apparent approximately two weeks after the treatment and these results can last anywhere from four to eight months.
The cost for using BOTOX ® injections for facial slimming can range from $800-$1200.
