Botox dysport and slimmer face
Lower face remodelling by injection of Botox/Dysport into the Masseter muscles (jaw muscles) can improve the overall shape of the face. Heart-shaped face is considerate delicate. Lower face contour is determined by the mandibular bone, deep and superficial soft tissues, and masseter muscle.
Massetter muscle hypertrophy have been one of the factors that determines the lower face shape and volume. This condition is treated with botulinum toxin (Botox/Dysport) injection that leads to the muscle atrophy. This treatment results in decrease of the volume that muscle uptakes for a more defined and enhanced lower face. Botox/Dysport injection into these muscles is also ideal for patients who are suffering from TMJ ,grinding and clenching their teeth.
The procedure is done in clinic with fine needles with no downtime. The results appear 2-4 weeks after the injection. Facial volume remains reduced 6 months after treatment.
