Does an overactive jaw muscle bother you? Does it make your face broad, or do you suffer from teeth grinding? A treatment with muscle relaxants 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. On the contrary, 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 masseter muscles with muscle relaxants, which will cause them to shrink and make the jawline appear less wide. 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 muscle relaxants.
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.
On average, muscle relaxants remain effective for 3 to 4 months. At JECT Clinics we also offer Alluzience in addition to the regular muscle relaxants, which can be longer effective up to 6 months. After that time, the treated muscles will gradually start working more and more. Once the muscle relaxants have worn off, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
