One of the most prominent features of a feminine face is a slim jawline. This helps to frame the face and create a delicate profile. The muscles that influence the slimness of the face are the masseter muscles, located on either side of the jaw. They are integral for chewing and holding the jaw in place. A facial slimming treatment can help to reduce the appearance of these muscles and create an attractive jawline and profile.
The masseter muscle has two layers; the superficial head and the deep head. When the superficial head is repeatedly used, it can become enlarged and give the appearance of a wider face. This enlargement can occur from grinding your teeth or clenching your jaw, or just a lifetime of use. By targeting the jawline with an anti-wrinkle injection, the masseter muscle is able to relax and decrease in size leading to a slimmer profile. An added benefit of this treatment is it can help to reduce tension headaches that occur due to grinding your teeth, as well as help to preserve your teeth by minimising grinding.

HOW DOES THE TREATMENT WORK?
During your one on one consultation with your M1 medical practitioner, they will check the strength of your masseter muscles and determine how much anti-wrinkle product needs to be administered. This amount is then injected with very fine needles so cause minimal pain.
You will begin to notice a reduction in teeth grinding and headaches within 2 weeks and a slimmer facial appearance by 4 weeks. There may also be some slight bruising or swelling around the treatment area; this will disappear in the next 2-3 days.
Your facial slimming treatment will last for 3-4 months. Individual results may vary depending on the strength of your masseter muscles and the amount of product used. After the effects have worn off we recommend a follow up treatment with your M1 medical practitioner.
