Facial slimming is widely used as a non-surgical treatment to get a slimmer, contoured jawline. The treatment makes use of anti-wrinkle injections to relax the muscles of the jaw which helps in thinning the masseter muscles.
Who Can Opt for Facial Slimming?
One can get facial slimming treatment if:
- They have a square jaw
- They suffer from bruxism
- They want a slimmer jawline
- They have a wider lower face
- They have headaches induced by anxiety
You can find out if you are an ideal candidate for the treatment by getting a comprehensive consultation from Dr Saber.
What to Expect from a Facial Slimming Treatment?
Once you have undergone the procedure, you will notice the results within 3 to 8 weeks. The treatment results in:
- A slimmer face
- A refined jawline
- Relief from bruxism
- Reduced headaches
You may also notice some bruising or swelling at the site of injection after the procedure. These side-effects subside over time. If they persist or you notice any other effects, you can contact the doctor immediately.
Is the Procedure Safe?
Getting treated for facial slimming by a renowned specialist can make all the difference. The procedure for facial slimming is safe and takes 30 minutes to be carried out.
However, there are risks involved if you choose a doctor who is not experienced in carrying out the procedure. Since there are other muscles that overlap in the area that the injection is administered, a wrong procedure could result in speech difficulties, an asymmetrical face or difficulty swallowing.
We strongly advise visiting an experienced doctor who is trained and equipped in carrying out all cosmetic procedures.
How Long Do the Results Last?
A jaw slimming injection will have results lasting for about 6-12 months. Following the doctor’s instructions after treatment and frequent touch-ups can make the results last longer.
How Much Does a Facial Slimming Treatment Cost?
How much your jaw slimming treatment can cost varies, depending on the number of units used to inject in your jaw muscles and the size of the masseter muscles. On average, getting a jaw botox in Melbourne can cost you anywhere between $250 to $1500.
If you follow up routinely and get frequent touch-ups done, the cost reduces exponentially.
