Botox for Face Slimming - also known as Masseter Botox
What is it?
Did you know that Botox can help you achieve a slimmer face – with no makeup! It can be used to slim and contour the face, by targeting the Masseter muscles at the back of the jaw.
This is not only an aesthetic treatment but can also help to reduce pain and headaches from enlarged muscles caused from chewing or involuntarily grinding your teeth at night.
How does it work?
Injection of Botox into these muscles helps to reduce their activity, which can have a dramatic effect on facial contour. The process is very quick;
- A visual assessment of the area to be treated
- Palpate and mark out the area to isolate the muscle
- A series of five to six injections to each side of the lower face
The procedure shouldn’t take more than a few minutes and typically takes 10 to 14 days to start working, with full slimming results seen after four weeks. This treatment wears off after 3 to 4 months, so to maintain a slimmer appearance, you’ll need to continue to get injections several times per year. Masseter reduction has even been said to give the appearance of a 5- to 10-pound weight loss.
