  1. Cheek augmentation with dermal filler can volumise sunken cheeks, whilst providing structure in a subtle aesthetically pleasing way.
  2. Facial slimming injections relax bulky masseter muscles, creating a slimmer lower face profile.

Do facial slimming injections hurt?

Most patients undergoing this procedure experience minimal discomfort. If required, patients can apply topical anaesthetic and ice packs prior to the procedure to minimise discomfort.

We also offer nitrous oxide gas for pain relief on request.

What pain relief options are available for facial slimming injections?

This is perhaps the most well tolerated cosmetic injectable procedure available.

Numbing cream and an ice pack can be applied prior to treatment.

Nitrous oxide (Happy gas) is available if desired for any cosmetic injectable procedure.

What can I expect during my facial slimming injectable treatment?

Your facial slimming treatment starts with a comprehensive consultation, including 3D photography, a personalised assessment of your facial structure and an analysis of your hopes and goals of treatment.

If facial slimming is deemed suitable to meet your aesthetic goals, numbing cream and ice will be applied. The skin is then cleaned, and 1-4 injections of muscle relaxant is expertly placed in the masseter muscle.

The treatment itself takes less than 2 minutes.

The skin is cleaned again, aftercare explained, any questions you have answered and a review appointment booked for 2 months post treatment is arranged free of charge.

What can I expect after facial slimming injections?

This is a lunch-time procedure, with no downtime. Most patients leave our clinic like nothing has happened, and return immediately to their daily routine.

Rarely, you may experience some redness in the treatment sites that resolves in a few minutes.

The effects of treatment take a few weeks to show. If you suffer from teeth grinding, you will notice a significant improvement within 1-2 weeks. The face will start to appear slimmer within 4 weeks and look its best at 8 weeks.

What should I avoid after my facial slimming treatments?

You should avoid the following:

  • Makeup for 4 hours
  • Intense exercise for 24 hours
  • Excessive alcohol for 24 hours
  • Facial massage for 4 days

When will I see the results of facial slimming treatments?

Results usually take effect in 3-4 weeks, with maximum results seen 8 weeks post treatment.

If you suffer from teeth grinding, this should improve significantly within days.

How long do facial slimming injections last?

Patients usually prefer to return for repeat treatments in 4-6 months. This can then be continued once to twice a year depending on individual facial characteristics.

When should I have my next facial slimming treatment?

This depends on your baseline muscle strength and overall aesthetic goals.

If you would like your jawline even smaller, we recommend retreating at the 8 week point.

If you are happy with your results at 2 months after one treatment session you should maintain them every 6 months.

Are facial slimming injections safe?

Yes. These are very safe minimally invasive treatments with very rare complications.

What are the risks of facial slimming injections?

This is a safe and well tolerated procedure. Bruising occurs infrequently but is easily managed with makeup.

Rarely, there is a risk of facial asymmetry or narrowing of the smile.

Infection is a rare complication, we estimate to be 1:3000-5000.

Larger doses in older patients with lax lower face skin can cause a worsening of skin laxity. This is solved with smaller doses of product placed over multiple sessions.

Who is unsuitable for facial slimming injections?

Those unsuitable for facial slimming injections include:

  • Pregnant
  • Breastfeeding
  • Previous Allergy/hypersensitivity to the product used in facial slimming injections

Other contraindications to facial slimming injections will be assessed during your complimentary consultation with our expert injectors.

Facial Slimming Injections with Dr Josh Wall

Sam presented concerns over teeth grinding and the desire to achieve a more slim, v shaped face. The recommended treatment is Masseter muscle injections (or a Facial Slimming treatment) - which will reduce the size and strength of the masseter muscle resulting in a more feminine, slimmer face - plus assisting in the prevention of teeth grinding and clenching of the jaw.

Benefits of Facial Slimming

We generally see patients come in for facial slimming injections due to one of three reasons:

- To assist with TMJ syndrome (clicking, aching or a radiating pain within jaw muscles)
- Teeth Grinding or Bruxism
- To achieve a more slim, heart shaped face

This treatment consists of targeted muscle relaxant injections into the masseter muscle to reduce the strength, size and activity of the muscle.

Dr. Josh treats Bruxism with Facial Slimming

Lidia experiences teeth grinding or Bruxism (the medical term), which causes pain radiating up to the temple and ear.

Over time, this also wears down and damages teeth, resulting in thousands of dollars of dental repair.

The recommended treatment is facial slimming or masseter muscle injections. This reduces the size and strength of the masseter muscle, whilst significantly relaxing the muscle, reducing the wear and tear on the teeth due to grinding.

Facial Fullness and How Facial Slimming Works

Women who are concerned about the bulk of their jawline and lower face may benefit from facial slimming.

It's especially popular with our Asian patients who want a more feminine, smaller face shape with a softer jawline.

One of the muscles that help in chewing is the masseter. It connects your cheekbone to your lower jawbone and is located on the side of your face. The treatment uses a muscle relaxant to temporarily block nerve signals in the masseter. As a result, the muscle is unable to move ​this then reduces the bulk of the muscle over time, resulting in a slimmer face.

Will My Smile Be Affected By Facial Slimming?

Have you considered undergoing facial slimming injections? But concerned that it will affect your smile or chewing?

Properly placed muscle relaxant in the masseter muscles will not affect your smile or chewing. The muscles that give you facial expressions are innervated by a different nerve.

Every treatment carries some risk, although such adverse effects are quite uncommon. In this video, Dr Josh Wall explains thoroughly how the procedure is done.
