One of our popular treatments at M1 Med Beauty is Facial Slimming. We have clients coming in with concerns regarding a square or oval face and therefore pursuit for a slimmer profile is desired within our clientele. By injecting into the masseter muscle, we can achieve aesthetically facial contour results and noticeable defined jawlines. Due to popular demand, our clinic has performed over 1000 facial slimming procedures within the last year across our clinics in Australia.
A bit about the masseter muscle…
For the function of biting and chewing, the masseter muscles are being used. Some individuals actually have a natural tendency to overuse the mechanism, growing the superficial layer of the muscle and therefore that is why they seem to have a wider face. Frequently, we do come across patients who report they suffer from severe migraines or tension headaches. They struggle to perform day to day functions due to this long-term problem. Fortunately, at M1 Med Beauty we are able to take advantage of anti-wrinkle injections to alleviate these issues with a quick and effective method.
How do masseter anti-wrinkle injections work?
During your appointment with one of our doctors, the strength of your masseter muscles will be determined. We do not need to insert the same unit of anti-wrinkle product for each clientele, as it is up to you to individually discuss what results you would like to achieve. However, generally on average 50 units are required for a female patient. Men will require more units than women as their masseter muscle is stronger naturally. As a guideline, our doctors will on average perform 3-5 injections in the targeted area. The consultation and procedure is completed within 15 minutes, as the procedure itself is immediate. We ask that you allow at least 15-30 minutes for the appointment time for check-in and general questions.
How long do the treatments last?
With the masseter injections, we ask that you patiently wait up to four weeks for the results to be visually noticeable. The reduction of migraines and headaches will disappear after two weeks. A slimmer facial profile will be palpable within a timeframe of four weeks. The longevity of anti-wrinkle product is roughly 3-4 months and needs to be repeated after 3-4 months have passed.
