Jawline Slimming Masseter Treatment

Jawline slimming, also known as masseter reduction for cosmetic purposes, involves injecting botulinum toxin type A into the masseter muscles using exceptionally thin needles, often referred to as “invisible needles.” This procedure aims to reduce the size of the masseter muscles, resulting in a more streamlined and slimmer jawline.

How It Works

By relaxing the masseter muscles, they gradually reduce in size, similar to how muscles shrink when not exercised regularly. As the muscle bulk and tension decrease, the bulkiness or “squareness” of the jawline also diminishes, resulting in a more delicate and traditionally feminine contour. This treatment not only targets the muscles in your jaw but also relieves any tension you may have been holding in this area and may prevent teeth grinding.

Jawline Slimming, Teeth Grinding, and Jaw Clenching

Following the pandemic lockdowns, dentists have reported an increase in cases of bruxism—where patients grind their teeth and clench their jaws. This stress response has become more widespread due to the challenges presented by COVID-19, with many individuals unconsciously grinding their teeth or clenching their jaws, often during sleep. This can lead to:
  • Dental Damage: Wear and tear on teeth, which can be painful and costly to repair.
  • Premature Aging: Decrease in the height of the lower face over time.
  • Jawline Changes: Bulking up of the masseter muscles, resulting in a squarer jawline.
Jawline slimming treatments can improve the cosmetic appearance of the jaw and provide relief from these physical symptoms. However, managing underlying stress and consulting with a dentist or GP is advised if you are concerned.

Ideal Candidates

  • Individuals looking to reduce a square or bulky jawline.
  • Those experiencing teeth grinding or jaw clenching.
  • Patients seeking a more traditionally feminine jawline contour.
