There are a few different methods of contouring or shaping the jawline. Jaw reduction is achieved through both surgical and nonsurgical means. One of the most widely used methods for jaw reduction in Singapore is Botox.
This method helps to reshape the lower third of the face, creating a more angular and often pleasing look. For those who are unhappy with their appearance, this can be a simple way to give the face a new look that may be more appealing.
Isn’t Botox Dangerous?
You might have heard some horror stories about Botox treatments, and it’s true that sometimes these procedures are botched quite badly. Some people end up with excess chin tissue, sometimes called witch’s chin. There are other complications that can occur as well, but that won’t be a concern if you use a licensed, experienced specialist.
You may want to enquire with Dr. Isaac Wong and see what your options are and if he can fit you into his schedule. Using a well-reviewed and respected Botox specialist can ease your mind and ensure that you get great results that you will be very happy with.
How Much Botox Is Needed?
The typical treatment for Botox jaw reduction surgery will require an average of 25 Botox units. More or fewer units may be required based on a variety of factors, but that’s the average for most patients.
Usually, the specialist will be able to inject all the required Botox into the jaw area in a single session. Further sessions can help to refine the jawline further and achieve an even more pleasing look, but you may be perfectly happy with the results of a single session.
Your individual results will vary, and your specialist can give you more information during your initial consultation.
How Botox Works to Shape the Jawline
Botox is very effective at lifting a sagging jawline, giving it a tighter, stronger look. This kind of treatment helps people to achieve a classic look that is universally appealing, and it is a great way for those who are unhappy with their appearance or those who suffer self confidence and self-esteem issues to get some help.
A trained professional will be able to use Botox to reduce the muscles in the jaw, and this can help with everything from your overall appearance to symptoms of jaw clenching.
How Long Botox Treatment Will Last
Botox has a known half-life, which simply means that it will only last for a limited amount of time before needing to be replaced. It doesn’t matter how much Botox is injected initially- it will still only last for about the same period of time. The body will naturally flush out the Botox chemical out on its own, and that’s normal and expected.
So how long will it stay in your body? The treatment can last up to six months. Various factors can cause it to be flushed out quicker, so you are looking at a maximum of six months before replacement injections are needed. If your facial contours have changed in that period of time, though, then the treatment may be slightly different the second time. It’s up to you to decide if you want to undergo repeated treatments and when you want to have them done.
Will My Insurance Cover Botox Jaw Reduction?
You may be concerned about the cost of Botox jaw reduction treatment in Singapore. Since this is usually considered a cosmetic, elective medical procedure, your insurance is not going to cover it. That’s for typical insurance plans. You may be able to sign up for a plan that covers cosmetic procedures, but that is not common.
In cases where a doctor recommends Botox treatment due to an injury, perhaps following a car crash, your insurance may be able to cover some or all of the cost for you. This is rare, though, and will need to be considered on a case-by-case basis.
If you have more questions about jaw reduction surgery and using Botox for this procedure, then consult with your local specialist. Schedule a consultation to find out what your options are and to set up a treatment plan that works well for your individual needs.
