Jawline slimming or masseter reduction for improving the contour of the lower third of the face and jawline is a one of the many popular treatments at our Kelowna skin care centre. The masseter muscles are thick, bulky facial muscles located at either side of the jaw angle or ogonion angle. Masseter muscle thickening or hypertrophy is commonly associated teeth clenching and bruxism or teeth grinding, temporomandibular joint or TMJ syndrome, temple or temporal headaches, stress and anxiety.
How does Jawline Slimming work:
At Cerulean Medical Institute we believe that best clinical and aesthetic results are achieved with truly customized assessment of your facial proportions, taking into consideration jawline and masseter muscle thickness and density. Botox which is a purified non-animal protein is a natural muscle relaxant with long proven safe and efficacious track record spanning over thirty years. Botox is injected at high titrated doses into precise locations and depths of the masseter muscle fibres on either sides of the jawline. Botox dosing and injection sites vary from patient to patient and are dependant upon individual patient anatomy.
Benefits of Jaw Botox:
Jaw botox or masseter botox thus relaxes the masseter muscles resulting in jawline slimming and a well defined jawline over time. The jaw is aesthetically less heavy or squared off with a softer, more feminine jawline evident. Clinically, the facial proportions of the lower third of the face are improved with square surface area of lip to skin or cutaneous are up resulting in a great show of the lips. Therapeutic benefits of jaw botox include decreased intensity and frequency of teeth grinding or clenching and TMJ syndrome resulting in improved function.
The above jaw botox before and after photo illustrates masseter reduction and jawline slimming after a series of Botox treatments to the masseter muscles. Note the appearance of the lip is enhanced and highlighted with jaw or masseter reduction.
