A wide jaw is seen as a predominantly masculine trait, but us women can have, and develop, this indication as well. Botox Jawline slimming is achieved by injecting product into the masseter muscle (the chewing muscle), and can reduce the appearance of a wide jaw, as well as reducing the symptoms of teeth grinding and clenching (Bruxism).
We recently treated a 34 year old woman from Warwickshire, who gave us her account of the consultation and treatment process, to hopefully better inform the public of exactly what happens at PHI Clinic.
"Before planning my wedding..."
“I didn’t have any problems with my jaw until about 2 months before planning my wedding. No one had really given me any advice on the amount of stress your body and mind goes through when you’re planning a big event like that. Regardless of how organised you are, the stress didn’t stop when I realised exactly how much I had to do every day. My body’s reaction to this was to clench my teeth and tense my jaw. This got so bad that at times it would wake me up with the intensity of the pain, and I got headaches in the morning.”
“Even after my wedding, it continued, and started to change the way my face looks! I had a new, squarer jaw, which my friends and family denied, but I could see my wider jawline and I didn’t like it. I could feel myself doing it all day, and well into the night, and it sometimes even made it harder to sleep.”
"During my consultation..."
“I booked in with Dr Tapan Patel, and during my consultation, I explained my worries to him. He examined the shape of my jaw and asked me to clench so he could see how the muscle reacted, then explained how he could ease the tension by injecting some botox into the muscle. He then mapped out (the fancy cosmetic term for drawing on my face) the planned injection sites and explained how that would affect the appearance of my jaw.”
“During the treatment, I could feel a pinch as the needle went into my skin. It was a little bit uncomfortable, but bearable, and I could feel a very slight result straight after treatment.”
“My jaw felt a lot more relaxed, and when I clench now, I can barely feel the muscle expanding. After a few days, I was sleeping better and my headaches had gone.”
“I am absolutely delighted with the results I’ve seen, and I’d recommend this treatment highly to anyone who suffers with the same concerns.”
