Botox injections have been a beauty trend for years. You’re probably aware of this already – millions of women are getting their fine lines and wrinkles treated to appear more youthful. But did you know they're also getting Botox to target their masseter muscles and slim their jaws?
Some women get Botox for their masseters to treat their temporomandibular joints and ease muscle tension from teeth grinding. Others are doing it to minimize the appearance of their strong jawlines, changing their squared-shaped face to more of a V-shape. Considering the endless content on social media of people showing off their before-and-afters from Botox, it makes sense why there are millions of women flocking to the clinic to get the same results.
Allow us to “deinfluence” you for a minute. Square or round faces and strong jawlines are beautiful; they always have been. According to psychologist Dr. Michele Barton, "A strong jawline indicates the ability to eat well, properly chew your food, and sustain health and life."
As with any cosmetic procedure, masseter Botox has its risks. @andiehargis on TikTok shared how the treatment messed up her smile, and while doctors like to claim that that side effect is rare, I beg to differ. Years ago, when my dentist suggested masseter Botox for my temporomandibular disorder, my teeth grinding improved – but I couldn’t smile. The injector must have missed the correct muscles.
The point is, if you have a square-shaped jaw or a wider face, you don’t have to feel insecure about it. Here are some of the most stunning celebrities who embraced their striking face shape.
