How Long Does Face Slimming Last
The treatment can give you quick, long-lasting results of up to 5 months. To maintain long-lasting results, repeated treatments are recommended every 6-9 months.
How Long Does It Take to Recover from Face Slimming?
For most patients, there is no recovery time needed, facial slimming treatments are quick and non-invasive, most patients go about their day as usual as soon as the treatment is over. There is a small risk for bruising and swelling in the injection site but this is very rare.
What Is Face Slimming?
Anti-wrinkle treatments are not a weight-loss solution and don’t affect any of the fat on the face. What anti-wrinkle treatments can do, however, is force the thick facial muscles that are layered underneath the fat to relax and create an altogether slimmer look for the face. This can be part of a very effective plan for a slimmer appearance combined with other treatments!
Are You a Candidate for Face Slimming?
Face slimming can help reduce the appearance of jowls, broaden the appearance of the forehead, and create a more defined jawline. If you’re interested in achieving a more youthful appearance, talk to a Skin Technique specialist about whether face slimming may be right for you.
Benefits of Face Slimming
Facial slimming is a minimally invasive procedure that can help to create a narrower, more youthful appearance. Face Slimming treatments can:
- Reduce the appearance of jowls
- Relax the jaw
- Result in a more feminine jawline
What Are the Risks for Face Slimming
Minor bruising and swelling may sometimes appear around the injection areas, but this is rare.
How to Prepare for a Face Slimming Treatment
Depending on your goals, preparation may vary. During your consultation, your specialist will walk you through any necessary steps you may take prior to your treatment.
What to Expect Post Face Slimming Treatment
Patients may experience mild sensitivity in the treated area for 12 to 24 hours, but this is typically not enough to interfere with daily activities. Your plan may require only one treatment, with checkups to see if anything needs to be tweaked.
A couple of treatments may be recommended in some instances.
Face Slimming Recovery & Timeline
The results are not permanent, but how long they last will depend on your treatment plan and genetics. The masseter muscles will be unable to get as much exercise as they normally do for several weeks, and that will cause them to shrink to a leaner size. Once the anti-wrinkle injections have worn off, the muscles will remain leaner until they grow back to their normal size through exercise.
You can protect your results for a more extended amount of time by avoiding activities that exert your masseter muscles. Avoid chewing gum and tough foods, and seek treatment if you have trouble with grinding your teeth. These factors can contribute to the original growth and then regrowth of facial muscles.
How does Dr. Christopher Pavlou perform a Face Slimming Treatment?
Once the treatment plan has been created, Dr. Pavlou begins the facial slimming procedure by applying injections directly into targeted areas on the face. Depending on a patient’s specific needs, these injections may target deeper muscles or subcutaneous fat deposits on the face and neck to reduce protruding jowls and sagging skin for a slimmer overall facial structure.
Why Choose Skin Technique for Face Slimming?
Our plans are developed for the best results, so each patient’s treatment schedule may differ. With facial slimming, the most important thing is creating an even look because the masseter muscles are separate and located on either side of the face.
Many people who have not chosen reputable clinics that know how to slim a face have reported uneven results. Skin Technique avoids this risk with a careful consultation period that includes exact measurements and examinations before starting the treatment plan. Our highly experienced doctors have performed thousands of anti-wrinkle treatments, and we are confident you will be very happy with your results.
