Facial reshaping, using a combination of fillers and a muscle relaxant which is injected into the jaw muscle, is growing in popularity to achieve a slimmer face shape. Creating a more gentle, oval face with jawline shaping can create a more graceful appearance. A bulky and enlarged Masseter muscle contributes to a square shaped facial structure. The Masseter, which is responsible for chewing, is one of the strongest facial muscles attached at the angle of the jaw. However, muscle relaxants can be used to define the jaw area and have a slimming effect, as well as improving the appearance of the chin area. Jawline filler can additionally be used alongside muscle relaxants. Facial reshaping with both fillers and muscle relaxants can achieve the best results.
Muscle relaxants can also be used to treat bruxism or teeth grinding. People who subconsciously grind or clench their teeth while sleeping can wake up with tense facial muscles, headaches, and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) due to the continuous grinding action throughout the night. By relaxing the Masseter muscle, this sequence of events can be stopped.
Non-surgical jawline contouring involves injecting a muscle relaxant into the jaw muscle (masseter), which blocks impulses from the nerve to targeted muscles which then become relaxed. The lower face appears slimmer and more oval over a period of a few weeks.
Dermal fillers can also be strategically placed along the contours of the mandible to smoothen out dips and imperfections. These high-density fillers for facial reshaping and contouring are a great way to redefine and provide structure to the lower face while contouring the chin and peri jowl areas, creating angles, and enhancing the lower face silhouette.
