FACE  SLIMMING

 

Desiring to slim your face and have a V shaped face? This non surgical jaw reduction procedure will help you accomplish that. If you have a face shape that looks too big at the jaws, it is possible that you have big masseter muscles, which is causing your face to look rounder, bigger or too square.

You can slim the jawline with a simple injection of Botox (or other neuromodulators) on each side of the jaw. This is face slimming procedure is popularly known as the non-surgical square jaw reduction procedure, or the Botulinum toxin square jaw reduction procedure.

The masseters are two bulky muscles on each side of the angle of your jaw. They serve as muscles of mastication, which means they help you chew. There are two other muscle groups that also perform this function, namely the temporalis muscles and the pterygoid muscles.

Sometimes, big jaws are caused by habitual or subconscious grinding of teeth. With excessive chewing or grinding (in a condition known as bruxism), the masseters at the jawline can grow to quite a size (causing the jaws to look square), much like how body builders grow their muscle by training them. Relaxing the muscles by injecting Botulinum toxin is effective in shrinking the jawline, thereby reducing the square jaw appearance.
