By using Botulinum toxin we can reduce jaw size and excessive teeth grinding (Bruxism). The treatment is carried out by our highly experienced aesthetic nurse. An wide jaw that can create a square shaped lower face. While the square jaw may be desirable in men, it is not a feminine appearance. In the past, surgery was the only remedy but now the non-surgical jaw reduction procedure
(using Botulinum toxin) is an excellent alternative solution)
If you place your hands at the angle of your jaw as you clench your teeth down, you will feel the bulging and hardness of a muscle. This muscle, called masseter muscle, is often a primary cause of the excessive jaw width and teeth grinding. Botulinum toxin injections weakens the corner part of the muscle, hence improve teeth grinding. The injection can also significantly reduce the size of this muscle and narrow the lower part of the face, therefore it is also commonly called the ”Botulinum toxin V shape treatment”. An additional benefit from the side profile is that the cheeks become highlighted, adding definition and contour to the face.
Can be performed on both female and male clients
