Botulinum toxin, or more commonly known as botox, is commonly used to reduce wrinkles and creases on skin but it is also equally effective as a facial area reduction treatment.
Strong jawline and golf ball chin can indicate manliness but for women, it is a physical attribute that they can do without. Genetics have always been attributed to the cause but apparently intense chewing, excessive grinding and frequent movement of the muscles are also contributing factors.
There are make-up tutorials to reduce the appearance of an over-prominent jawline or even hide wrinkles and for some, surgery is also a plausible albeit invasive and high risk option. Ardmore’s Botox treatment is a non-invasive procedure that can significantly leave you with a slimmer jawline, smoother skin and more defined face shape.
Experience & *Results
At Ardmore Aesthetic Clinic, we use two brands for botulinum toxin injections such as BOTOX® and Dysport.
In general, botulinum toxin injection relaxes the muscles that causes active jaw and chin muscles, which makes these areas prominent looking. It also relaxes the muscles around the areas with the most emotional reactions, like our eyes and forehead, that cause frown lines and crow’s feet. Did you also know botulinum toxin injections can reduce excessive sweating (called Hyperhidrosis Treatments) on our armpits, hands and feet?
During the procedure, a numbing cream may be applied and botulinum toxin is then injected into the particular area where facial muscle reside. This relaxes and weakens the muscle over time leading to a reduction in size for the jaw area and smoother skin for the upper face area. There is minimal discomfort, if any, involved in this treatment. Additionally, minimal downtime also means that you can resume your daily activities making it a suitable lunchtime treatment for some as well.
