Masseter Reduction Treatment
Stress and other factors can lead to involuntary teeth grinding. This puts excess pressure on the jaw, which can wear down your teeth, cause headaches and other negative symptoms.
At SKYN we offer treatments to reduce jaw size and excessive teeth grinding or Bruxism. The treatment is carried out by our highly experienced Doctors. A wide jaw can create a square shaped lower face which may be desirable in men, but may not be for a feminine appearance. In the past, surgery was the only option but now the non-surgical jaw reduction treatment (using Wrinkle Relaxers) is an great alternative solution.
Wrinkle Relaxers are a medical procedure that should be performed in a controlled medical environment. It takes just 10-15 minutes to relax the muscles – with results that can last up to 5 months before your top-up is due, this is especially effective for:
- Reducing excessive teeth grinding
- Jawline slimming (masseter reduction)
- Achieving a V shaped face
How do Wrinkle Relaxers Work?
Wrinkle relaxers weaken the injected muscle over time, which leads in turn to a reduction in the overall size. Our Doctors will focus the treatment where the three heads of the muscle overlap and at the deep and superficial part of the muscle.
At your consultation, our Doctors will examine your facial muscles to determine if you are the right candidate for treatment, as not all clients will see the aesthetic effects of masseter reduction.
No anaesthesia is needed, though ice may be used to numb the area before and after your treatment.
