Face Slimming in One Easy Step (Without Makeup or Surgery)

by | Oct 29, 2020 | Face, Treatments

Face-slimming techniques and tricks are on the rise. In cultures around the world, slim, delicate jawlines are coveted by women and some men too. The V-shaped face is a term coined by Korean beauty gurus who share contouring, toning, and reshaping methods (with varying results).

The Korean beauty craze has caught on across the globe. People in Toronto seeking face slimming now look to YouTube makeup tutorials or plastic surgeons to get the aesthetic they want. Are you interested, but hoping for something more natural and safer? Sovereign is your source for the most advanced beauty trends and techniques. We’ve got good news for you. Now you can achieve face slimming in one easy step without makeup or surgery!

What is face slimming?

You may have heard of masseter reduction procedures. While some people undergo jaw surgery to make permanent alterations to muscle and bone, there’s a new, minimally invasive way to target bulky muscles that are responsible for a prominent lower jaw. Face slimming can impart a V-shape through narrowing the angle of the jaw toward the chin. In some people, their strong chewing muscles account for significant width and volume of the rear jaw on either side of the face. Relaxing those muscles and reducing their movement shrinks them. At the same time, chin filler or implants may accentuate a heart-shaped and pronounced chin.

The good news for potential clients is that masseter muscles can be softened using a simple, quick injection. There’s no operation needed, but real, lasting 3D results can be yours. This treatment beats the mess of makeup and eliminates the risks related to surgery.

Are you an ideal candidate for face slimming or reshaping?

Men and women of all ages and backgrounds are choosing the injectable approach to face reshaping. Here are a few factors that you might relate to:

  • You have a square-shaped face and jawline

  • You feel your lower look is overly masculine
  • Your cheeks appear to be “baby cheeks”, too full, or chubby
  • You see a double chin
  • You have a broad lower face

How do masseter injections slim the face?

Botox (botulinum toxin), Dysport, and Xeomin are examples of neuromodulators. These medications target the signals that flex and move muscles to diminish the signals temporarily and, likewise, diminish movement. Botulinum toxin A is well-known globally as the effective quick fix to smooth forehead frown lines, because injections in this region slow or stop specific muscle groups for a time. Millions of neuromodulator treatments are done each year for people of all backgrounds.

One use for neuromodulators that’s now growing in awareness is masseter injection. The medicine blocks muscle nerves in the strong jaw muscles to keep them in a more relaxed state. While the muscles essential for chewing still function normally, the bulkier masseter muscles soften and shrink in size while flexing less. This results in a slimmer jaw and a new look for your face.

What can you expect from your face-slimming treatment?

The length of time required for your appointment will depend on how many facial areas you wish to treat and the inclusion of a consultation beforehand if this is your first time visiting Sovereign. You’ll be greeted by our friendly staff, provided with the procedure overview and consent forms to review, and then escorted to your private treatment suite. Your practitioner will explain the risks that are inherent to this product and treatment as well as answer any questions that you may have.

Your practitioner will examine your jaw and create temporary marks on the specific region landmarks, as needed. The needle used to deliver the product is very thin. Micro-doses of medication are injected into the muscles, and the entire process for injection takes just 15 minutes on average. The best part is, there’s no downtime or recovery consideration, and you’ll be free to resume regular activity afterwards. You’ll be advised to avoid rubbing or massaging the treatment sites.

How long do the effects last?

You’ll see the effects set in between roughly 2 to 3 weeks after your treatment. Face slimming typically lasts longer than neuromodulator treatments in the forehead (4 months on average), because the muscles are more substantial and the dosage is slightly stronger. Most patients can count on 5 to 7 months of their desired outcome before the results gradually fade. Over time, maintenance every 6 months is usually sufficient to maintain the desired face shape.

How else do we accentuate the results of this treatment?

The beauty of visiting a full-service aesthetic medical centre is that we offer comprehensive, holistic, and bespoke treatment plans. Our clients who choose masseter injection for face slimming may also opt to have facial dermal fillers placed in the cheekbones for lifted, heart-shaped facial remodelling. Likewise, filler in the chin can accentuate a recessed or weak chin to balance features and transform your look. Dramatic effects are possible through very subtle changes to more than one area of the face.

Injectable hyaluronic acid fillers are temporary and formulated from a completely natural substance. It will be gradually reabsorbed over time and typically lasts 6 to 9 months. Your experienced facial injector can create a harmonious transformation for your face shape using the many cosmetic tools at their fingertips.
