If your dentist has ever told you that you grinding your teeth in your sleep is only going to get worse. It files down teeth and can actually grow your masseter muscles to give you a more square looking jaw over time. Dr. Vi Sharma says that “luckily if you’re not happy with the shape of your jawline, there is a non-surgical way to treat shape concerns and dental issues using anti-wrinkle injections.”
Everyone has heard of Botox or anti-wrinkle Injections and how they can reduce wrinkles in the forehead and eye area, but they are also used to relax muscles in the jaw. Here at SKIN CLUB Cosmetic Doctors Melbourne, we offer jawline slimming solutions.
Why does the jawline change shape?
The jawline can become more ‘square’ as a result of overused or developed masseter muscles. These are the muscles that are in charge of your chewing and are attached at the angle of your jaw. When you tense the jaw muscles or grind your teeth, they become more obvious and develop the muscle creating a square jawline. While a square jawline can suit many people, many patients (particularly females) don’t like it.
Tooth grinding (bruxism) occurs at night while you sleep or during periods of subconscious stress. It is a problem because it causes the teeth to wear down the enamel and cause possible headaches. If this happens on a regular basis at night, you can understand why many people with this condition wake up with headaches.
Using anti-wrinkle injections in the masseter muscles can treat bruxism. The muscle relaxant weakens the masseter muscles so they don’t clench or grind during the day/in your sleep. It is important to note that you will still be able to use your jaw muscles to chew food.
How to get a slimmer jaw without surgery
Anti-wrinkle injections are a simple effective way of non-surgically slimming your jawline. This gives the effect of a more youthful, feminine appearance.
Our Cosmetic Doctors and Cosmetic Nurses use calipers to measure your face using the golden ratio in mathematics to get even symmetry.
The best skin care and makeup to use on your jawline
After having jawline slimming procedures done we recommend taking extra care to look after the skin and keep it free from congestion. Use a good quality skincare range that has tightening effects. Once your jawline is more aesthetically pleasing to you, you may want to enhance it by using highlighter makeup. We recommend a mineral-based makeup that is non-comedogenic, talc-free, cruelty-free and free of dyes and perfumes. Suitable for all skin types, including sensitive skin.
