Following a thorough examination and discussion as to your desired outcomes, our Facelab Consultant will recommend a series of treatments best suited to your individual needs that will help you attain the look you want.
Common reasons for people wanting to have Facial Thinning is to reduce the width or squaring of their face caused by muscle enlargement, accumulation of excess fatty tissue and sagging jowls due to loss of collagen and elastin in your skin.
Thinning of the face is achieved with cosmetic injections into the jaw muscles, which also reduces clenching and may alleviate certain types of headaches.
SAVE when combining face-thinning injections with any other cosmetic injectables.
Age is not a contraindication to having any of these treatments, however you need to be mindful that ageing also causes natural face thinning. During the consultation visit all long term considerations need to be discussed so that the right treatment choices are made.
Each patient presents differently, so each treatment approach is also likely to be different.
Some people have a ‘wide face’ look due to the enlargement (hypertrophy) of their Masseter Muscle. This is one of the key muscles involved in the closing of the jaw when chewing as well as tooth clenching and grinding. It is the clenching and grinding, often referred to as Bruxism that can cause the enlargement of the Masseter muscle giving rise to a broader looking face.
Cosmetic anti-wrinkle medicine, the same used to treat the skin on the forehead and around the eyes are used in large doses to reduce Masseter muscle activity and help shrink this muscle.
Another useful technique employed at Facelab by our skilled dermal therapists to achieve a thinner face is a combination of intra-oral and extra-oral laser tightening. Laser energy causes tightening of the skin, mucosa, and tissues below the surface which after 3-4 treatments can result in a slimmer look. We combine these treatments with complimentary skin rejuvenation for a synergistic effect with FACELAB's 3-D and 4-D Laser Facelift.
