Facial reshaping, using a combination of fillers and a neurotoxin which is injected into the jaw muscle, is growing in popularity to achieve a slimmer face shape. Creating a more gentle, oval face 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, with the use of jawline contouring fillers to relax the Masseter, a slim jaw and a more defined look can be achieved.
This treatment can also 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 naturally occurring substance into the jaw muscle (masseter), which blocks impulses from the nerve to targeted muscles which then become relaxed. Chin and jawline contouring is targeted, meaning only the injected muscles do not contract, while the rest of the facial muscles continue to function normally. The jaw becomes smaller and slimmer over a period of a few weeks, with the facial shape gradually changing from square to oval. When the Masseter is neutralised, the chewing function is compensated by other deeper facial muscles which do not affect the shape of the jaw.
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.

A more defined jawline can be achieved several different ways. Performing facial exercises is one method, however it can take a long time to achieve minimal results. Cosmetic injectables for chin and jawline contouring can bring about noticeable transformation faster, with results in just a few weeks.
There are certain facial exercises that can help to achieve a v-shaped jawline, although this can take time. The fastest way to achieve your desired jaw shape is through the non-surgical method of jawline contouring mentioned above. This is offered at our clinic where the cosmetic doctor will discuss with you your desired results before administering treatment accordingly.
Jawline contouring refers to the procedure used to shape and define the jawline for an improved look and feel. Contouring can be achieved through a range of methods, including exercise and even cosmetics, however one of the most effective methods with guaranteed results is facial reshaping with injectables.

"Was very professional and advanced - and so well priced. I feel confident that it’s coming from Dr Aarthi- she explains everything and the other facialists are really good as well. Finally someone who knows what she is talking about and accessible! I’ve been trying to clear my skin for so long - I can’t tell you how many other laser clinic I have been too selling me products and nothing made an impact.
