Face slimming

Does an overactive jaw muscle bother you? Does it make your face look wide, or do you suffer from teeth grinding? A botox treatment causes the muscle to relax, giving a "face slimming" effect.

If the jaw muscle is developed to such an extent, it can make the face wider. In fact, this can often be desirable for men, but slightly less so for women. When the emphasis is on the broad jawline, the cheekbones become less pronounced. This can be remedied by treating the jaw muscles with botox, which will cause them to shrink and make the jawline appear less broad. Hence the name "face slimming. In this way, the relationship between the jawline and cheekbones is restored. Thus, the ideal V-shape in the face can be established. Furthermore, as a result of the strong chewing muscles, there may be pain in the jaws or teeth grinding. These problems are also remedied by treatment with botox.

Botox, or botulinum toxin, is a muscle relaxant that causes the jaw muscle to temporarily contract less hard. This has no effect on chewing itself or moving the jaw, because many other muscles are involved. As this jaw muscle contracts less hard, it will decrease in size. This can lead to a narrowing of the face.

How long does the result last?

Botox remains effective for 3 to 4 months on average. At JECT Clinics we offer both Azzalure and Alluzience botox, with effective duration times up to 6 months. At the end of the effective duration period, the treated muscles will gradually start to move again. When the effect has diminished, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
