    BEFORE AND AFTERS

    Jaw Slimming Melbourne by Skinclub Cosmetic Doctors

    Jaw Slimming

    An oval jawline is considered to be feminine and beautiful in many cultures. Overactivity of the chewing muscles can enlarge the jawline giving a more square and masculine profile.

    We unknowingly contribute to this, unaware that the overlarge chewing muscles create an excessive fat or a saggy jawline. A variety of non-invasive and laser techniques can be used to slim the face with far less downtime than traditional maxillary surgery. The result is a slimmer, sharper, and more pleasing jawline.

    Jaw slimming has become increasingly popular in recent years in some cultures with many people seeing a V-shaped or heart-shaped face as highly desirable. Gone are the days when wider face angles were seen to symbolize prosperity and abundance. Today, V-shaped faces, slimmer faces, are more feminine and therefore, more attractive.

    Over time, our face shape changes gradually become wider at the bottom than the top. In some cases, it is a change led by age, but in others, it is due to the presence of strong bulky chewing muscles on both sides of the lower face. It is possible to slim a widened jawline using cosmetic injectable treatments.

    FAQ

    All you need to know about Jaw Slimming

    What Are Platelets?

    Platelets are part of your blood, these cells in your body play a role in the healing and clotting process. When there is an injury or break in the skin, your body releases proteins in response that results in platelets binding to the region where the damage has occurred to help the blood clot and stop bleeding from continuing unabated. As this clotting takes place, the platelets start to secrete growth factors which contribute to repairing the damaged area.

    What is facial slimming?

    Anti-wrinkle injections can be used to slim the face when injected into the angle of the jaw (the masseter muscle). By using approximately 50 units in the jaw area, anti-wrinkle injections can slim prominent jawlines and create a more aesthetically pleasing facial contour.

    Nonsurgical treatment is usually by means of anti-wrinkle injections. An anti-wrinkle injection is injected into the masseter muscle, which blocks the nerve signals to the muscle, and partly relaxes the muscle and reduces its size. The treatment is quicker with much less discomfort, and the patient can usually drive back home soon after the procedure. The effect of the injection is temporary and repeat injections are required to maintain the new look. One of the potential complications of the procedure is the temporary paralysis of the muscles that move the lips. However, this happens very rarely and should not really cause worry.

    How does jaw slimming work?

    With the use of Anti Wrinkle Injection injections to the lower part of the face, the jawline appears slimmer and thinner, which then contributes to an overall V-shaped face. These anti-wrinkle injections are paired with dermal fillers to keep a balanced look and avoid overdoing the contours.

    To achieve a slimmer face, injections are done on the masseter muscles, also known as chewing muscles. The bulk of masseter muscles is what makes our faces wider and bigger. This happens as we chew, or develop the habit of teeth grinding. Forceful chewing and teeth grinding add to the bulk of masseter muscles, which is treated by the procedure.

    The temporalis muscle, which is felt over the temples when clenching the jaw, is another target for anti-wrinkle injections or muscle relaxing injections. The temporalis muscle works in conjunction with the masseter muscles to help with chewing and closing the jaw. Although treatment of the temporalis muscle is less commonly sought after for cosmetic purposes, treatment with muscle relaxing injections can help reduce headaches caused by excess tension in this muscle.

    Does jaw slimming hurt?

    No, it doesn’t. In fact, jaw slimming injections are the least painful injections of all the treatments. It feels like a small sting when you have an injection. More like ant bites, jawline botox injections do not cause as much as the more invasive procedures. In the same way, this non-surgical treatment does not require downtime. If your skin is on the sensitive side, you may experience a little swelling and redness, although these happen very rarely. If they ever do, you can expect them to dissipate in less than 24 hours.

    How long does it take for the results to show?

    The results will be most obvious in 3-8 weeks, largely depending on the size of your face. You will most likely notice any or all of the following:

    • A more refined and feminine jawline
    • A slimmer face
    • Lesser headaches
    • Lesser pain or discomfort after excessive jaw clenching

    Jaw slimming is a popular non-surgical cosmetic procedure that helps slim down the face and achieve a V-shaped contour instead of a more masculine broader jawline. When done properly, it will leave no scars and will cause no pain, requiring no downtime at all. For best results, get this procedure from a licensed clinic with experience in providing cosmetic services such as facial slimming. It is also best to undergo initial consultation before the process itself to set realistic expectations and align the procedure with your aesthetic goals.
