If you have an overdeveloped jaw muscle due to frequent chewing or teeth grinding, your jawline may appear wider than desired.
A prominent square jaw and overly full cheeks can be beautifully corrected with botulinum toxin. By strategically injecting in the right areas, the jaw muscles are temporarily relaxed, resulting in a slimmer chin and jawline. At Ageworth, we approach face slimming with subtlety, ensuring a natural-looking outcome.
At Ageworth, face slimming with botulinum toxin always begins with a personal consultation. One of our doctors will discuss your goals, desires, and needs prior to the treatment. Are you aiming for an overall refreshed appearance or primarily seeking a more youthful look? There may be injectable treatments you haven’t considered yet. When addressing a wide jaw, our cosmetic doctors always consider you as an individual. The amount of botulinum toxin and the desired outcome are tailored to factors such as your age and radiance, allowing us to reveal the best version of yourself with botulinum toxin. If you agree with the treatment plan, the procedure can be scheduled, optionally immediately after the consultation.
Every injectable treatment starts with thorough cleansing and disinfection of the skin. The cosmetic doctor then marks the injection points based on the treatment plan. We use an ultra-fine needle to ensure virtually painless treatment. After the procedure, you will receive comprehensive aftercare tips to maximize the longevity of your results. On average, face slimming takes approximately 30 minutes (including the consultation).
There is no recovery time required after a face slimming treatment, and you can resume your regular activities on the same day. However, your skin may appear slightly red and sensitive due to the injections. To ensure effective placement of the botulinum toxin, we recommend avoiding lying down, bending over, and engaging in physical exercise for the first four hours after the treatment. Wait at least two weeks before visiting a beautician. UV radiation can accelerate skin damage in the treated area, so it is important to minimize sun exposure and always apply a sunscreen with a minimum SPF 30. Applying a nourishing (scar) cream can help expedite the skin’s recovery after an injectable treatment.
Duration of Results
The results of a muscle relaxant treatment typically last three to six months. The body naturally breaks down botulinum toxin over time. The duration of the effect varies per person and depends on factors such as your skin type and lifestyle. If desired, a follow-up treatment can be scheduled.
