Face slimming can give you a nice feminine V-shaped face. Non-surgical face slimming is fantastic for women with a square-shaped face that looks masculine and for people with chubby cheeks. A square-shaped face often results from enlarged masseter muscles (masseter muscle hypertrophy). A big masseter muscle can be genetic. The masseter muscle can also enlarge in people who grind their teeth at night, a condition called bruxism. Teeth clenching causes the masseter muscles to enlarge overtime.
Non-surgical face slimming is done by injecting Botox or Xeomin into the masseter muscles. The face slimming procedure is done in few minutes and there is no down time. You can return to your normal activities immediately. The results are usually evident after two weeks. Dr. Elseweifi numbs the skin over the masseter muscle before doing the injection. This makes the face slimming procedure almost painless. The results of non-surgical face slimming treatment can last up to 3-4 months after the initial treatment. More sessions of Botox injections are usually required to maintain treatment results
There is an added important benefit to the non-surgical face slimming treatment. The injection with Botox or Xeomin for face slimming relaxes the masseter muscles. Therefore, teeth grinding at night (Bruxism) can be reduced. In fact, Bruxism reduction is done in the same way with injecting Botox or Xeomin into the masseter muscles. In addition, patients with TMJ problems can benefit from the treatment. The injection for face slimming often reduces headache, muscle tension, joint pain, and joint clicking. Face slimming with Botox gives you a nice-looking face and better sleeping.
A square-shaped face can be caused by many factors. Your first step is to have a consultation with Dr. Elseweifi. During the consultation, Dr. Elseweifi will determine if you are a candidate for non-surgical face slimming with Botox.
