At Ashbury Cosmetics in Brisbane and on the Gold Coast, our experienced cosmetic professionals can define, slim and contour your facial features with our advanced anti-wrinkle injections.
This non-invasive treatment is ideal for patients looking to slim their prominent jawline or who desire a more aesthetically pleasing facial contour. The result is accredited greatly to the angle and technique used to inject the product.
How do facial slimming injections work?
One of our medical professionals will gently inject anti-wrinkle product into the masseter muscle. The masseter muscle (facial muscle) plays a major role in the chewing of solid foods, and is connected to the mandible (lower jawbone) and the cheekbone. The product will help prevent the muscle from contracting, which will begin to weaken the muscle and reduce the size over a period of time.
When will I see the results?
Patients can expect to see results at approximately 2 – 3 weeks post-treatment. Some patient’s experience a firm bite immediately after treatment, which will shortly subside. Once the muscle becomes relaxed, your bite will feel soft and results will become evident.
You will begin to notice a narrowing of your jawline and a visibly slimmer appearance to you face.
Am I a candidate for facial slimming treatment?
Facial slimming treatment is ideal for patients who:
- Have strong bite muscles
- Have prominent jawline
- Do not have heavy lower cheeks
- Have a fuller facial appearance
Treatment is on a case by case basis and we recommend a comprehensive consultation with one of our experienced medical practitioners to accurately determine your candidacy.
What are the risks of facial slimming treatment?
You may experience slight bruising and swelling at the site of treatment, which will quickly subside. As the masseter muscle begins to weaken, you may notice a slight difficulty grinding hard food. This too will quickly dissipate.
For this reason, it is important to seek treatment from a qualified, highly experienced and skilled professional to significantly minimise any risks associated with treatment.
Facial slimming and dermal filler
Facial slimming treatment in conjunction with dermal filler has become increasingly popular. Dermal filler works greatly to enhance facial features and compliment the final result of the facial slimming treatment. Patients typically request additional filler in their chin or cheeks.
