Jawline slimming: Face slimming Botox treatments

jawline slimming face slimming BotoxJawline slimming: It’s pretty common knowledge that Botox is one of the most sought after injectable anti-wrinkle treatment for the temporary reduction of expression lines and dynamic wrinkles. However, did you know that Botox can be used to soften the lower jaw, slim down the face and even prevent habitual teeth grinding?

Dr Dan Dhunna, who has clinics all over the UK, is a master when it comes to Botox injections and has trained with some of the world’s leading mentors to deliver state-of-the-art techniques using this substance for facial sculpting and jawline slimming.

Botox works to slim down the jawline (creating a more feminine facial appearance) by reducing the activity of the masseter muscles; the muscles either side of your jaw, responsible for its movement.

Many of us hold our tension in this area and inadvertently clench or grind our jaws, which can lead to headaches. This makes the masseter muscles more prominent and can, therefore, give the appearance of a square-shaped face. For women, a heart-shaped face with a slender lower portion is more feminine and graceful-looking. If you suffer from tension in this area and notice your jaw is becoming more pronounced, a treatment with Botox can reduce the volume and give a more feminine appearance to your face.
Not only that, but your teeth will benefit too, as excessive grinding can cause cracking, damage and wear and tear on our precious pearly whites.

What happens during a jawline slimming treatment using Botox?

Before any treatment can commence at Dr Dan Dhunna’s clinics, he will ask that you attend a pre-treatment consultation. This gives you both the opportunity to discuss treatment options and the procedure itself. Dr Dan Dhunna will also take some necessary information about your medical history and can also examine your face, to endure that Botox injections will indeed suit your requirements. Once he is satisfied that Botox injections will benefit you, you can go ahead with the treatment.

When you’re ready for your Botox treatment, Dr Dan Dhunna will ask you to complete some standard consent forms. He will then clean your skin thoroughly. Small injections of Botox will be administered in to your masseter muscles and any surrounding areas that Dr Dan Dhunna sees fit. The procedure is very quick and the needles used are extremely fine, so a pain-relief will not be necessary (however, if you are particularly squeamish he can apply a topical anaesthetic prior to treatment). You’ll then be given some aftercare advice to follow, but can return to your everyday activities immediately after your Botox treatment.

When will I see results and how long will they last?

The results from your Botox jawline slimming treatment can take up to a month to be noticed. It all depends on how you respond, individually to treatment. In most cases, you’ll see optimum results 2 weeks after the treatment. The longevity of your results also depends on how your body responds and your lifestyle. Some find that results can last anything up to 8 months, but a more realistic expectation would be to plan a twice-yearly treatment with Botox to maintain your results.

You don’t have to resort to drastic surgical intervention to obtain a slimmer lower facial appearance or to help with teeth grinding. A very simple, quick and highly-effective treatment with Botox, from Dr Dan Dhunna, will offer superb results that can last for months at a time!
