Jawline Slimming / Wide Jaw
A wide jaw is often the result of an overactive masseter muscle which is the muscle within your jaw that deals with the movement of the jaw allowing you to chew food for example.
An overactive masseter muscles is often caused by excessive grinding of the teeth which is known as bruxism. Teeth grinding occurs subconsciously whilst you are asleep and many patients are unaware that they are doing it. The excessive use of the masseter muscle can result in the muscle increasing in size and as a result can give the appearance of a wide jaw.
A wide jaw can cause your face to look square in shape and many female patients complain of appearing less feminine as a wide jaw is more of a masculine quality.

Wrinkle relaxing injections are the best method for jawline slimming.
A controlled amount of Botulinum Toxin type A is injected into the jawline which works to slim the area by relaxing the muscles such as the masseter muscle. When you stop using a muscle, the muscle often decreases in size which is what happens to the masseter muscle resulting in a slimmer jawline. In most cases the treatment also helps to stop the subconscious grinding or clenching of the teeth which helps to reduce the muscle size also.
The result is a slimmer jaw line and a more oval appearance to the face. The best results are seen around 2 – 5 days post treatment and the treatment tends to last 3 – 4 months before a top up treatment is required.
Any bruising, swelling or redness should disappear in a week or ten days and you should not have any problems with chewing and eating after this procedure.
