facial sculpting or contouring is a technique that gives the patient an oval- or v-shape face that is slimmer in profile. a common and popular facial slimming treatment among asians, the slimming of the facial features gives the individual a more youthful look, while the skin will appear rejuvenated and healthier. patients may wish to have a narrow jaw if they have a wide jaw. botox can get injected into the masseter muscle and under the cheekbones. it can weaken the muscle in a few minutes. the size of the jaw starts to decrease, and it will reach the size you want after some time. as time passes, the muscle will go through muscle hypertrophy since it will lose strength and volume, decreasing in size.
masseter botox is suitable for:
a square-shaped jawline
a jawline that is more masculine in nature
cheeks to appear “slimmer”
those who want to reduce involuntary teeth grinding (bruxism)
how it works
botulinum toxin acts as a relaxant for jaw muscles, inducing relaxation and thins the chewing muscles (masseter) in the lateral jaw. botulinum toxin will block the nerve impulses of the muscles in the selected area, diminishing the fine lines and wrinkles. it also ensures your cheekbones look full and face is lifted. it also helps to refresh your overall appearance, giving you a more youthful-looking face. the treatment is also suitable for individuals who are afraid of or do not want to have an operation. it consists of a few simple injections to the selected areas, with numbing cream applied prior to treatment in order to reduce any discomfort or pain. we use the smallest and finest needles to inject botox, minimising any redness, bruising or bleeding on the facial skin. improvements will start to show after 3-5 days, and your skin will appear smoother as the new oval- or v-shape begins to form. as the treatment only affects injected facial muscles, other muscles continue functioning as normal. so, your facial expressions will be unaffected.
