Jawline Botox® Injections for a Slimmer, V-Shaped Face in Toronto

Many people consider a slim oval or heart-shaped face to be attractive and youthful looking, so having a wider, squarer face may cause them to feel self-conscious. Botox® for face slimming from Toronto’s Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic is a minimally invasive cosmetic procedure that improves the contours of the lower face if you have a pronounced jaw that is caused by prominent masseter muscles (jaw muscles). Face slimming with botulinum injections creates a slimmer, V-shaped jawline for patients who want a softer, more feminized facial shape.

What is Face Slimming with Botox®?

Overuse of the masseter muscles because of teeth grinding or other causes may result in them becoming overdeveloped. Strong masseter muscles may cause a strong jaw and a masculine-looking appearance. Additionally, sometimes even if you are at a slim, stable weight, having a broad face may make you appear heavier than you really are.

Botox® is a muscle relaxer that may help to correct facial asymmetry by treating the enlarged muscles. Face slimming with Botox®, which is also called masseter reduction or jaw reduction, involves strategic injections of the medicine that contains botulinum toxin type A directly into the masseter muscles which are located at the back of the jaw. These muscles, which stretch from the middle to the lower part of the face, allow you to chew and grind your teeth, but they can sometimes cause a square-shaped or round-shaped face that some consider to be unattractive.

These injections of botulinum toxin for facial slimming gradually shrink the jaw muscles over time by blocking the signals that tell the muscles to contract. As the jaw muscles atrophy, they will naturally become less pronounced. Face slimming injections sculpt a more defined, contoured jawline. In addition, to face slimming, the injections also are helpful for temporomandibular joint dysfunction (TMJ) because they prevent the jaw from clenching.

Face Slimming Injection Procedure Details

Face slimming at Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic with neurotoxin injections is a simple, minimally invasive procedure that takes only a few minutes to be completed and only causes minor discomfort. Numbing cream is available to provide relief from any discomfort. After visually examining the area to be injected, the nurse injector will palpate the area, manually isolate the muscles, and then perform a series of injections on either side of the lower face.

Results and Recovery from Face Slimming Injections

Recovery time is minor after a face slimming treatment. The most common side effects are tenderness, redness, and irritation while chewing within the first couple of days. Patients should avoid certain activities such as touching or rubbing the injected area, lying down, exercising, leaning down, taking pain relievers, and drinking alcohol immediately after undergoing face slimming. It takes between five to ten days for the neurotoxin to take effect on the muscles and the full results are visible within a few weeks. The face slimming results last for three to four months.

Other Options for Facial Slimming and Contouring

While Botox® is offered at Avebelle Cosmetic Clinic for masseter reduction to slim the face, injectable fillers are another popular option for enhancing the contours of the face by adding subtle volume or for face slimming.

Unlike wrinkle injections with botulinum toxin, fillers are injections of soft gel-like materials that are added beneath the skin. Cheek fillers sculpt the cheekbone areas while lip fillers add plumpness to the lips, and undereye fillers improve hollowness in the tear troughs. Jawline contouring fillers and chin fillers improve the contours of the lower face by adding definitions to sculpt a sharper jawline.

Cheek fillers create the appearance of higher, sculpted cheekbones and lift the contours while narrowing the area below the cheeks. Chin fillers elongate the face to sculpt a sharper, more V-shaped appearance. Jawline contouring with fillers gives the face a more angular, defined appearance by lengthening and narrowing the lower face.

Belkyra® is an injectable that dissolves resistant fat between the jawline and neck to minimize a double chin – this can also help to sculpt a sleeker jaw and neck area that shaves pounds off your appearance.
