In 2019 alone, there were 18.1 million cosmetic procedures performed in the US, with Botox and facelifts being two of the top five treatments sought. Face slimming procedures are becoming more and more popular in today’s world, and are one of many body sculpting options in Orlando. Here at Wymore Laser & Anti-Aging Medicine, we specialize in body-contouring and anti-aging techniques, among other specialities, to give you the look you desire in Orlando, Florida.
Effects of Aging
You may not realize that once you hit your 30s, your body will start decreasing it’s collagen production. Add to that your skin’s decrease in elasticity and the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, and you may be fully feeling the effects of aging. The neck and chin can also be affected by excess fat and bulky muscles, thus your jawline, neck, chin, and cheek areas may leave you with a more negative appearance and feelings of self-consciousness. Excess fat deposits are the main culprits in these bulky facial appearances, but overdeveloped masseter or chewing muscles from teeth grinding can also be a culprit. It can be difficult watching your body change before your eyes, and you may want to seek treatment in toning and slimming your face, neck and chin areas. Body sculpting in Orlando has never been easier than today with so many technological advancements and treatment options.
Non-Surgical Face Slimming
You know that Botox helps treat fine lines and wrinkles, but is also showing promising results in slimming the face. These injections are placed into the masseter muscles of your face, relaxing the muscles, and thus creating a slimmer, more defined jawline. This non-surgical face slimming injection can also help alleviate teeth grinding, reduce pain associated with lockjaw, and help slim a boxy or square jawline. This is a much easier and faster procedure than any cosmetic or plastic surgery option, as these injections are typically done within an hour. You also get the added benefit of zero downtime, so as soon as you leave the medical clinic, you are free to resume most activities.
Recovery & Results
Side effects are rare, but can include swelling, redness, and slight bruising immediately following the injections. If you do experience slight discomfort, ice and numbing cream can be used to alleviate these symptoms. Most symptoms, if they occur, will typically last only a few days until they fully dissipate, and it is recommended to avoid touching the lower part of your face for at least twelve hours after the treatment. Results are seen just a few days after treatment, and by the tenth day you will fully see the slimming results on your jawline. Most first treatments last about three to four months, and require continuing injections to maintain the look. With each injection, though, the masseter muscles will only continue to relax more and more, and subsequent follow-up treatments can be held until the six month mark in most cases.
