What are face slimming injections?

Face slimming, experiencing increasing popularity, creates a “softer” angle and a more contoured appearance to the face. The appearance of a bulky, square jaw can be caused by well-developed masseter (“chewing”) muscles, which may have been built up due to excessive teeth grinding.

In a face slimming treatment, a more defined jawline is achieved by weakening these muscles with muscle-relaxing injections, significantly reducing their volume and narrowing the lower face.

How does face slimming work?

Anti-wrinkle injections are muscle relaxants. When injected into the jaw, the substance blocks nerve impulses to the masseter muscle. This results in a controlled weakening and relaxation of the jaw, subtly softening the jawline.

How is face slimming in Melbourne carried out at EST Clinic?

If you choose to have your facial slimming treatment in Melbourne with us at EST Clinic, this is what you can expect:

Consultation

At your initial consultation, a Specialist Plastic Surgeon or an experienced Cosmetic Nurse will assess your facial features and spend time understanding your concerns. They will answer any questions and discuss any concerns you may have to ensure you have all the information you need before proceeding with any treatments.

Procedure

The face slimming treatment is quick and considered to be relatively comfortable. The visit will last less than an hour, there is no downtime required and patients can return home or to work immediately after the procedure. Most patients report very little discomfort, however ice (and on rare occasions numbing cream), can be used to minimise discomfort if necessary.

Anti-wrinkle product is administered via a thin needle directly into the lower jaw. The product is measured in units, and the volume of units required depends on the size of your masseter muscles.

Side Effects and Risks

Face slimming injections are generally considered to be a safe treatment when administered by a trained professional. However there are potential risks and side effects which may include:

  • Pain, Swelling, or Bruising at the Injection Site: This is a common side effect of most injectable treatments, usually temporary.
  • Facial Asymmetry: There's a chance that the injections may not result in an evenly slimmed appearance.
  • Muscle Weakness: Since the injections work by relaxing the muscles, you may experience muscle weakness in the jaw area.
  • Difficulty Chewing or Speaking: In rare cases, if the injection affects other muscles, it could impact your ability to chew or speak.
  • Changes in Smile or Facial Expressions: Again, due to the nature of the treatment, there could be a change in your smile or other facial expressions.
  • Allergic Reaction: Allergic reactions to the injected substances are rare but possible.

Results and Recovery

It is common to experience minor side effects such as swelling, redness and slight bruising immediately following the treatment, however these usually disappear within a few days. It is recommended that you avoid touching your lower face for at least 12 hours after receiving the treatment. Serious risks or complications caused by the procedure, such as infection, numbness and drooping, are extremely uncommon.

You will begin to notice a change after a few days, and the full jawline slimming effect will be noticeable within 10 days. Other facial muscles will continue to function as normal, and your facial expressions will not be affected by the treatment.

FAQs

What results can I expect from jaw slimming treatment?

Facial slimming can commonly treat a square-shaped, wide or “heavy” jaw and reduce bruxism (teeth grinding). It can result in the appearance of weight loss as the cheeks will appear slimmer. The results of this treatment will be subtle yet noticeable, and it is important to be realistic about what to expect.
How long do the results of a jawline contouring procedure last?

​​The duration of the results can vary depending on several factors, including the type of substance used, the individual's metabolism and their lifestyle habits. Typically, the results of the procedure can last anywhere from 3 to 6 months, with some individuals experiencing longer-lasting results.
What is the difference between face slimming injections and dermal fillers?

The primary difference is the type of substance used and the areas they target. Face slimming injections typically use substances that relax the masseter muscles in the jawline, resulting in a slimmer-looking face. On the other hand, dermal fillers use substances to add volume and plumpness to specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, and under-eye area.
Does facial slimming work?

Yes, facial slimming can be an effective procedure for individuals who wish to achieve a more defined and contoured jawline by reducing the size of the masseter muscles through the use of cosmetic injections.
How can I reduce my jaw size naturally?

There are several natural ways to potentially reduce jaw size, including maintaining a healthy diet and weight, practising good oral hygiene, avoiding excessive teeth clenching and grinding and performing facial exercises to strengthen and tone the facial muscles. However, the effectiveness of these methods may vary among individuals and may not achieve the same results as a cosmetic procedure.
Does face slimming hurt?

The procedure typically involves minimal pain and discomfort and most individuals experience little to no pain during or after the procedure. However, some may experience mild bruising, swelling, or tenderness at the injection site, which can be managed with ice and over-the-counter pain medication if necessary.
Can chewing gum help the jawline slim?

Chewing gum can potentially help to exercise and tone the muscles in the jawline, but it is not a guaranteed method for reducing the size of the masseter muscles. Additionally, excessive gum chewing may lead to temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders and other oral health issues.
Can masseter anti-wrinkle injections make you look older?

No, when performed by experienced cosmetic doctors or nurses, masseter anti-wrinkle injections should not make you look older. In fact, the injections can potentially help to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles around the jawline.

Any surgical or invasive procedure carries risks. Before proceeding, you should seek a second opinion from an appropriately qualified health practitioner.
