Facial reshaping is becoming popular as more people prefer a slimmer and oval looking face. Changing the shape of the face from square to a more attractive oval shape can create a gentle 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.
This treatment can also treat bruxism or teeth grinding. People who subconsciously grind or clench their teeth while sleeping usually – can wake up with tight tense facial muscles, headaches and dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint (TMJ) as a result of the continuous grinding action throughout the night. By relaxing the Masseter muscle, this entire sequence of events can be stopped.
When a neurotoxin or BTA (Botulinum Toxin A) is injected into a muscle, it blocks impulses from the nerve to the injected facial muscles. The muscles become relaxed and dormant. BTA is target specific, which means only the injected muscles do not contract while the untreated facial muscles continue to contract in a normal fashion. When BTA is injected into the Masseter, it will selectively relax the muscle and prevents it from contracting. The Masseter becomes smaller and slimmer over a period of few weeks and the facial shape gradually changes from square to oval. When the Masseter is neutralized, the chewing function is compensated by other deeper facial muscles, which do not affect the shape of the jaw.
Dermal Fillers are also strategically placed along the contours of the mandible to smoothen out dips and imperfections. These high density Hyaluronic Acid fillers are a great way to redefine and provide structure to the lower face, chin contours and peri jowl areas creating angles and enhancing the lower face neck silhouette.
"Therapist was really skilled and gentle with waxing. Made me feel comfortable and communicated really well. Would definitely recommend this place to others"
Had a lovely Medik8 facial with microdermabrasion and eyebrow waxing by Lucy last Tuesday and the results were amazing. Super soft and glowing skin, and perfect eyebrows. Love the Medik8 products used!

"I feel very confident having laser by a medical practitioner compared to a therapist with laser training. I was contacted via text post laser for a follow up and check however experienced no negative side effects."
"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. But ive had carbon and peels just after a few treatments it’s looking clear and radiant. Will be coming here from now on and highly recommend it."
