Face Slimming can occur by injecting the masseter muscles of the jaw wrinkle relaxers can be used to treat bruxism and slim the face, enhancing the appearance of the cheekbones.
The masseters are the muscles along the jaw that enable us to clench and grind our teeth. These muscles can increase in size as we age adding bulkiness to the jaw and creating the appearance of a wider, squarer shaped face.
Injecting wrinkle relaxers into the masseter muscles causes the muscle to significantly reduce in size, slimming the lower face, creating an aesthetically pleasing angle of the jaw and enhancing the cheekbones. There is minimal swelling and redness at the time of injection and full effects are usually evident within 6 weeks with results lasting several months.
