Having a slimmer face with more defined features is on the wishlist of many of our aesthetic patients. If this sounds like you, and you’ve tried diets, lotions and creams to no avail, you may be feeling exasperated and wondering what other options you have that don’t require going under the knife.
While many consider Botox® as a treatment focused on combating fine lines and wrinkles, it’s perhaps not so commonly known that it can slim and define the face. That’s where Face Slimming Botox® comes in; a minimally-invasive procedure that is simple yet highly effective, with instantly noticeable results that can last up to a year. In this blog post, we’ll explore the ins and outs of the procedure involves and how it can help to transform your facial profile.
How can Face Slimming Botox® benefit you?
There are a host of reasons someone might want face slimming Botox®; however, it is most commonly requested by those looking for a masseter reduction. Masseters are muscles in the lower face responsible for chewing and can grow over time, often because of teeth grinding at night or when you are concentrating or eating. Teeth grinding is a common habit that you may have picked up involuntarily and, as such, can leave your face looking slightly more expansive than you might like. Other reasons you might be looking to slim your face could be that you’re unhappy with the shape of your jawline and wish to soften its overall look if you feel it is too square or too wide.
What does Face Slimming Botox® involve?
The process of undergoing Face Slimming Botox® is a relatively simple one. You will have an initial consultation with your aesthetician, who will discuss your concerns and find out more about the results you wish to achieve. Your injector will walk you through the entire process, from pre-procedure preparation and the appointment itself to possible side effects and recommended aftercare. The aesthetic consultation is also an ideal opportunity for you to have any questions or concerns you may have answered in detail.
On the day of your appointment, you will meet with your aesthetician, who will administer Botox® to the pre-determined areas of your face. The injection site will be palpated before two to three injections are administered to each side of the face. Face Slimming Botox® is a relatively quick procedure, and while you may experience a low level of discomfort, it’s highly unlikely that you’ll feel any significant pain. If you have low pain tolerance, your aesthetician will likely offer a numbing cream to eliminate soreness and put your mind at ease before treatment.
Since Face Slimming Botox® is a minimally-invasive procedure, you will likely be pleasantly surprised by its noticeable efficacy. While initial results often take a few days to appear, you’ll find that they become more prominent between two and eight weeks after the procedure. With the expertise of an aesthetic professional, many patients can go from a square jawline to one that appears slim, defined and more oval-shaped in just a few weeks.
Once you have undergone treatment, your clinician may advise that you avoid touching the injected area, lying down, drinking alcohol or taking painkillers to maximise results and reduce the risk of post-procedure complications.
How long do the effects last?
The effects of Face Slimming Botox® tend to last around three to four months, with exact results varying from patient to patient. While your aesthetician will likely provide a recommended follow-up injection plan, one of the benefits of non-surgical procedures is that you have the freedom to decide if and when you’d like to top up your treatment. Many patients find that the effects of Botox last longer with each subsequent session, although this again tends to vary from one individual to the next.
Are there any side effects?
After undergoing the procedure, you should experience minimal side effects, with most patients reporting no more than slight bruising and inflammation. You can also enjoy little to no downtime and resume your regular routine almost immediately. This makes Face Slimming Botox® a convenient and straightforward procedure which you can easily fit around your career and lifestyle.
Face Slimming Botox® is undoubtedly rising in popularity and is favoured for its ease of application, minimal downtime and excellent results. It also commands a much lower financial commitment than invasive procedures such as jawline surgery. Final results can be obtained within just a few weeks and transform how you look and feel about yourself.
