This treatment involves the use of Botulinum Toxin type A (commonly referred to as 'Botox') to relax and slim down the jaw. We make small injections into the muscle that allows you to clench the jaw (the masseter muscle). This muscle shrinks away over a period of around 4-6 weeks, with the result that the jawline appears slimmer and the cheekbones look more defined.
Products used: Botulinum Toxin type A
Pain relief: none needed
Time taken: 30 minutes
Post-procedure: In most cases clients can go back to work on the same day however, there may be some swelling, redness or small bruises on the skin.
Aftercare: We advise clients to use the muscle as much as possible for an hour post treatment, as this helps to spread the toxin evenly through the masseter muscle.
Results: Best results are seen 4-6 weeks after the procedure - once the masseter muscle has had time to shrink down.
