A wide jaw can be a symbol of masculinity, which can cause problems for some women when they are concerned about wanting to appear more feminine. Wide, or square, jaws can be caused by an overactive masseter muscle, used when chewing. Bruxism, or grinding teeth (consciously or subconsciously during sleep) can cause your masseter muscle to grow in size, leading to a heavier-set jaw.

In the quest for a softer, more heart-shaped face, our jawline slimming treatment is perfect. At PHI Clinic, we use controlled amounts of Botulinum Toxin type A to perform a variety of treatments, including reduction of frown lines and jawline slimming. This is a safe, clinically proven alternative to invasive surgery. This temporarily and precisely relaxes the overworked masseter muscle to ensure a less wide silhouette, with a redefined contour.
We pride ourselves on our natural looking results, and use Botox® by Allergan to achieve these. As this is only a temporary treatment, we recommend that you have top ups regularly to ensure the continuity of the smooth appearance. This treatment only takes 20 minutes, and can last for up to 4 months.
