How is non-surgical facial slimming with Botox done?
The non-surgical facial slimming with Botox and Xeomin is done in our Dallas and Southlake offices. At the time of your initial visit, Dr. Malik reviews your medical history, any medications that you may be taking, history of any drug allergies and prior history of treatment with Botox or Xeomin for jaw reduction. She evaluates your facial structure and the strength of your jaw muscle. If you are a suitable candidate for non-surgical facial slimming, non-surgical jaw reduction with Botox and Xeomin, she explains the procedure and discusses realistic outcome from your treatment. Dr. Malik marks the area to be injected and injects Xeomin into the masseter muscle. You will be scheduled for a follow up appointment 2 weeks after your initial treatment to evaluate the strength of your jaw muscles and to determine if you need additional Xeomin into the masseter for further relaxation of this muscle. At two weeks there is some slimming of face and softening of the jawline due to relaxation of the masseter muscle. Over the next 3-4 weeks, the relaxed masster muscle loses some of its mass due to atrophy. You will be asked to follow up six weeks from the initial date of your facial slimming treatment to evaluate your final results. The entire treatment takes about fifteen minutes and is associated with very little discomfort. There is mild soreness of the treated area for 2-3 days. There is no downtime in majority of patients, there is a small chance of bruising.
Repeated masseter relaxation with Botox and Xeomin may lead to permanent reduction of the size of the masseter muscle and reduction in the size of mandible as well in some treated individuals.
