Do you want a slimmer looking, more oval shape to your face?
Anti wrinkle injections can be used to slim the face when injected into the angle of the jaw (the masseter muscle). Anti-wrinkle injections can slim prominent jawlines and create a more aesthetically pleasing facial contour.
How do facial slimming injections work?
The masseter muscle is the main muscle of biting and grinding. It is a strong muscle in comparison to the frown muscles or forehead. We usually perform 3 to 5 small injections of anti-wrinkle product into the masseter muscle, as shown below. The way I like to explain the mechanism of action is similar to that of putting your arm or leg into a plaster cast after a break. Preventing the muscle from contracting over a period of time weakens the muscle and reduces its size.
