Facial Reshaping

 

Causes

Masseter Muscles are the two bulky muscles on each side of the angle of your jaw. These muscles become enlarged when you have the tendency to clench or grind their teeth (bruxism) or chew excessively. People who go for a facial reshaping procedure want to decrease their overly square jawline (due to enlargement or increased bulk of masseter muscle) or opt for a softer and slimmer appearance of the jawline.

BTA for Face Reshaping

  • Targets: Masseter Muscles
  • Treatment: BTA stands for Botulinum Toxin A, is injected into the massater muscle bilaterally. This will reduce the strength and action of the masseter muscle. By reducing the activity of the masseter or jaw muscle, it becomes smaller and less prominent over time, resulting in a more slender and oval-shaped face. This is also a treatment method for Bruxism or more commonly known as grinding of teeth.
  • Method: Injection
  • Downtime: Lunchtime procedure
  • Frequency: Every 4-6 months (depending on the patient)
