What Is Jawline Contouring?

Jawline contouring in Nashville at Sherman Aesthetic Center is a cosmetic procedure that reshapes and enhances the jawline to achieve a more defined and youthful facial appearance. By utilizing advanced injectable treatments like Volux, Voluma, and RHA, along with customized techniques tailored to individual needs, jawline contouring can help sculpt and refine the lower face. The goal is to create a balanced facial profile, with an emphasis on achieving a more proportionate width in the middle third of the face, contributing to a desirable oval or heart-shaped facial contour associated with youthfulness and beauty. This is a non-invasive treatment, and there is no recovery time necessary!

What Causes Heaviness in the Jawline?

When the lower third of the face is heavy or fuller, there are several possible causes. One of the common causes is a muscle called the masseter which can enlarge with time and widen the lower third of the face, which can masculinize a female face and detract from the beautiful optimal shape. 

Masseter hypertrophy is the enlargement of the muscles used to chew, which creates a widened jawline. Patients typically notice they have a square facial shape due to the oversized masseter muscle. This is more commonly found in patients who grind their teeth, also known as bruxism.

A square face or a lower third heaviness of the face can be easily diagnosed by studying your masseter's position, size, and strength with a series of simple tests that can be performed at a customized facial analysis to determine your 360-degree beauty angle. If masseter hypertrophy is diagnosed as a cause of facial heaviness, the widened jawline can be reduced with a 5-minute injection. BOTOX is placed by a master injector to reduce the masseter's activity, ultimately slimming the jawline and creating a more oval facial shape over time. Because the muscle needs to be treated on overaction alone, a careful dose and sequential treatments must be undertaken.
