Facial slimming treatment is one of the services available at Medisurge Aesthetics for slimming the jawline and facial shape.
A square jaw can be due to bruxism or in some cases it can be a genetic trait.
What is Bruxism?
Bruxism is a condition characterised by teeth grinding and excessive clenching of the jaw. It usually occurs at night during sleep, and can have consequences such as the blunting of teeth, headaches, temporomandibular joint dysfunction, and an increase in the size of the masseter (chewing) muscles that result in a widening of the jawline and a square appearance of the face.
A square jaw is feature that may not be always be desired, especially in females. Slimming the jawline can help to convert a square shaped face into an ‘upside down triangle’ shape, to achieve a more youthful facial appearance.
By injecting anti-wrinkle injections into the main muscle that causes the bulk (the masseter muscle), the squareness of the jaw can be reduced significantly, and bruxism reduced.
The procedure has virtually no downtime, and starts to work in 1 week and lasts for about 4 to 8 months.
