Face slimming

Does an overactive jaw muscle bother you? Does it make your face look wide, or do you suffer from teeth grinding? Treatment with botox 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 cheek muscles with botox, which will shrink them 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 can also be remedied by treatment with botox.

Botox is a muscle relaxant that temporarily makes the jaw muscle 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?

On average, botox remains effective for 3 to 4 months. At JECT Clinics we offer besides the regular botox Azzalure also Alluzience, which can be longer effective up to 6 months. After that time, the treated muscles will gradually start to work more and more. When the botox wears off, the treatment can be repeated. Repetition of treatment is important to maintain the best possible results.
