Facial Slimming without a diet or sweatin’ at the gym?!
Yes, it’s true! This treatment is a technique that can help give a more V-shaped face and slimmer profile. Botox (or Dysport) for facial slimming is a popular service for people with a more masculine, square-shaped jawline or chubbier cheeks. This can be the result of having large masseter muscles which cause the face to look rounder and too square. It’s a great option for patients that do not want surgery, but also want a more evenly proportioned facial structure.
