Our genetics and cultural background plays a big part in our facial features resulting in a broader jaw line. Some people have very active jaw muscles that give off a very square shape and for some people they may feel to masculine. Anti wrinkle injections can relax these muscles reducing the muscle in size for a more refined, slimmer more feminine jaw.
Some patients have very active jaw muscles that give their face a very square shape. These are called the masseter muscles and are located at the angle of the jaw. They are the main muscles used for chewing and biting. Injecting wrinkle relaxers into these muscles can reduce their size and give the square face a much more tapered or oval appearance.
Many patients who grind their teeth can suffer from migraines, pain, tenderness and temporo-mandibular joint (TMJ) problems, headaches, earache, facial pain and broken teeth. Injecting wrinkle relaxers into the masseter muscle provides instant relief. Patients also see a dramatic change in the overall shape of their face. The square, severe appearance of their lower face softens into a more normal and aesthetically pleasing jaw line.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I TAKE PRE AND POST CARE?
Pre treatment care: We recommend wearing a daily sunscreen prior to your treatment to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. If your skin is peeling or sunburnt, we recommend that you wait a few weeks for the peeling or burn to subside. Please do not use any prescription Vitamin A for 1 week prior to your treatment.
Post Treatment: We recommend no harsh acids or scrubs for at least 5 days post treatment. Your dermal therapist will guide you on a recommended skin care program for your skin concerns. Sunscreen must be worn for a minimum of 14 days post treatment to prevent post-inflammatory hyper pigmentation.
We always recommend the daily use of SPF 30 sunscreen to prevent the skin becoming sun damaged. Please apply at least once every two hours when out in the sun.
