Facial shape changes over time as a result of aging and lifestyle. An oval face shape with a well shaped jawline is considered to be a sign of youth and beauty. Masseter muscles, essential for chewing, help to define the shape, angle and contour of the jawline. Overdeveloped masseter muscles, often a result dietary habits, chewing gum, or teeth grinding, may lend a squareness or asymmetry to the jaw that is considered masculine. In addition, as we age the fat compartments in the face deflate and descend, leading to a saggy appearance and a changed facial contour.
Face slimming methods using dermal fillers and neuromodulators can optimally change the shape of the face.
- Cheek fillers will restore volume to the correct area of the cheek, leading to optimal light reflection and the appearance of a slimmer, more oval face.
- Neuromodulators can be used to decrease the size of the masseter muscles, reducing the squareness of the jaw and creating a slimmer face.
A tailored approach to face slimming methods will unlock the beautiful features of your face.
