Not many areas of the body show a person’s age more than the lower face. Ageing can cause the chin and jawline to sag from loosening skin around the mouth and cheeks. This excess droopy skin that collects along the lower part of the face (specifically along the jawline and below the cheeks) is referred to as Jowls.
Dermal fillers are injected into the skin’s soft tissue to restore lost volume or fill in lines and wrinkles. The jawline slimming with Botox can also be combined with Dermal Fillers to treat these jowl symptoms.
Jawline slimming is also perfect for those that suffer from Bruxism
and can relieve the pain symptoms.
Bruxism is a painful condition that affects many people and is often untreated. Most people probably grind and clench their teeth from time to time. But when teeth grinding and clenching are occurring regularly, they can damage the teeth and cause a myriad of unwanted symptoms. People suffering from this condition are often unaware of its existence because the teeth grinding usually occurs at night when they are asleep.
Often treatments can include using mouth guards or mouth splints. But these are very expensive, with specialist mouth guards often costing several hundred pounds. Unfortunately, these don’t actually treat the problem and only delay the inevitable while often leading to poor quality of life.
Here at Dr. Aesthetica, we suggest using Botox to treat Bruxism. Patients often report a significant improvement of symptoms within a week and report having the “best sleep in ages.”
