A face with an inverted triangle or v-shape is thought to be attractive. A face shape that tapers from the cheekbones to the chin is referred to as a v-line. However, the masseter muscles on either side of the face can sometimes be so strong that the jawline seems overly wide. This is a desired characteristic for men because it is a show of masculinity. Women, on the other hand, frequently find it less beautiful in their own face.
The masseter muscle is located near the ear and travels along the jawline. If you clench your jaw, you may feel it. Its purpose is to allow you to move your lower jaw up and down as well as side to side. Overdeveloped masseter muscles can cause a wide, square jawline, teeth grinding (bruxism), and jaw pain in some persons.
A wide jawline is typically seen in people of Asian heritage and is often genetically determined. If your jawline is the focal point of your face, it’s possible that your cheekbones aren’t realising their full potential. For a gentle appearance of a v-shape, the right balance between cheekbones and jawline (jawline slimming) is required. We can obtain the illusion of a slimmed-down jawline using botulinum toxin therapy, restoring the “inverted triangle of youth.”
The swollen jaw muscles are targeted during the treatment. When these muscles are expanded, the face takes on a square shape with a masculine jawline. Following treatment, these muscles relax and shrink in size, resulting in a narrower jawline and a more delicate oval shape to the face.
Before beginning your treatment, you must first have a consultation. This is true regardless of whether you have previously had anti-wrinkle injections elsewhere. This is so that we can discuss your medical history and ensure that the procedure is suitable for you, and ensure that you are entirely informed before beginning treatment.
You may have concerns regarding the safety of the anti-wrinkle treatment. This medicine has a lengthy history of usage, which gives it a high level of efficacy and safety. Wrinkle relaxing treatment is FDA-approved to treat wrinkles and fine lines, and there is a very low risk of side effects when performed by skilled, experienced specialists. Anti-wrinkle injections are appropriate for a broad spectrum of people, but there are some limitations to be aware of. This treatment is for healthy men and women who are at least 18 years old. It is not recommended for persons with certain underlying medical disorders, such as myasthenia gravis or motor neuron disease. This treatment is also not recommended if you are pregnant or have previously had an adverse reaction to the injections.
Most people don’t feel any discomfort during this procedure. We can use a light topical anaesthetics to numb the area beforehand if you are apprehensive about having this treatment or are fearful of needles. The skin may be red and inflamed after treatment, but you should be able to get back to work straight away.
After the initial treatment, it may take up to 2 weeks to get the full effects. The cosmetic results can last up to six months, but most require another treatment after 3-4 months. As wrinkles resurface, most people will require re-treatment.
However, as the unconscious muscular contraction habit is changed in some treated locations, the wrinkles may return less prominent following repeated treatments. We provide all of our patients with a free two-week follow-up session to check the treatment’s effectiveness and, if necessary, give any more treatments.
The majority of people report just modest local discomfort and tenderness as a result of the treatment. The injection site may be moderately swollen right after the treatment, but this usually goes away within 48 hours. It’s also possible to have some minor bruises. These medications have virtually no side effects.
An allergic reaction is possible. These medicines have been in use for more than 20 years and do not seem to have caused any long-term side effects.
- After the treatment, don’t wear make-up for at least 24 hours.
- For 48 hours, avoid touching or rubbing the injected regions, as well as facials and massages, ensuring that the treatment remains at the injection site.
- For the next 48 hours, avoid excessive activity, sauna, and alcohol-based products on the treated area.
- Arnica cream can be applied if bruising occurs.
- Take paracetamol after the treatment if you are experiencing any pain.
