A well-defined jawline can
help to create a desired youthful look by creating a natural contour in the lower face
Jawline contouring can help slim the face, improve a recessed chin, increase volume and definition, reduce the appearance of jowls, bringing balance to your facial features and provide a more feminine, masculine or youthful facial profile.
A well-defined jawline can help to create a desired youthful look by creating a natural contour in the lower face. Generally for men a strong square jawline and chin is desired and females a smooth, softer but defined jawline and chin is desired.
There are a number of treatments that can help to achieve whichever look you desire, depending on the individual’s facial structure and goals.
Before & Afters
Jawline Slimming (Facial Slimming) Injections
Jawline slimming also known as masseter slimming, is a treatment that consists of wrinkle relaxer injected into the masseter muscles, which helps to create a more feminine face shape, like a V shaped face or a heart-shaped face. It can also help with:
Bruxism (Teeth Grinding)
Sometimes masseteric hypertrophy is caused by Bruxism, which is the involuntary or habitual grinding of the teeth, typically during the night. This will cause the masseters to enlarge and if left untreated will cause TMJ dysfunction and orofacial pain. Wrinkle relaxer is injected directly into the masseter muscle. The muscle is weakened enough to stop involuntary grinding of the teeth and clenching of the jaw. This significantly relaxes the muscle and reduces the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding. Voluntary movements, such as chewing and facial expressions, should not be affected at all. The procedure takes approximately 5 minutes and there is no down time following treatment.
Length of Each Treatment: Allow 15 – 30 minutes
Downtime: No exercise / excessive sweating for 24 hours after
Price: From 40 units per side ($4 per unit)
