Overdeveloped masseter muscles can result in the appearance of a square, masculine looking jaw and the desire for our patients is often to achieve a slimmer and more feminine shape in their lower face. An effective treatment for reducing a prominent or asymmetric jaw line, muscle relaxing injections contain a naturally occurring neurotoxin called botulinum toxin type A, which when injected into the muscle blocks nerve signals and make them unable to contract as tightly while voluntary movements, such as chewing and facial expressions, are not affected by the procedure.
When used to treat a prominent jawline, muscle relaxing injections can improve the overall proportion of the face and restore an oval appearance, a slimmer jawline also results in more prominent cheekbones and chin which are especially important for patients who typically want high cheekbones and a contoured jawline. Filler can also be used to enhance the chin, which is why this treatment is often done in combination with the jawline slimming procedure.
Muscle relaxing injections are made up of naturally occurring plant proteins that when injected into muscles blocks nerve signals and make it unable to contract as tightly, causing wrinkles to temporarily relax and soften for an anti-ageing affect.
Patients generally start noticing the softening of the masseter muscle after 1 week and softening of the jaw line at around 6-8 weeks.
On average 3-4 months dependent on the age and muscle activity of the patient.
A very fine needle is used in this treatment, and most patients describe the sensation as a small scratch. No anaesthetic is required.
The procedure has no downtime.
