MUSCLE SLIMMING INJECTIONS

Muscle Slimming Injections

Teeth grinding & jaw slimming £350

  • Are you suitable?

Teeth grinding happens at night and is usually involuntary (without conscious efforts). It is detrimental to the health of the teeth and over time can result in large square jaws which look obvious and unnatural.

Sometimes there is a genetic predisposition to large square jaws. Various studies have suggested that East Asians have genetically more hypertrophied masseter muscles [1][2][3]. Large square jaws in women particularly can leave a masculine impression.

This treatment can effectively weaken masseter muscles, disabling night time teeth grinding and over time reduce the size of the muscles, making the face look more slimmed and oval-shaped.

  • How long does the procedure take?

The procedure is quick and take approximately 5 minutes only.

  • When will I see results?

The masseter muscles at baseline often feel ‘hard’ and ‘strong’. Following the injection, the muscles will feel ‘soft’ in about 2 weeks’ time. Visible reduction in jaw size can be noticed from 4 weeks and reach a peak around 6 weeks.

  • When can you return to normal activities?

The injections will result in mild swelling and redness which usually resolves after 30 minutes. Applying ice can speed up the process. Normal activities can be resumed shortly after the procedure. However, strenuous activities such as going to the gym should ideally be avoided in the first 24 hours.

  • How long will the results last?

In general, treatment will continue to have effects for 3-6 months after which the jaw muscles will slowly regain strength and become more active again. Repeat treatments are recommended at this point and several regular repeat treatments (3 – 5) will help achieve optimal jaw slimming after which only maintenance therapy is usually needed.
