Face Slimming

What is Face Slimming?

Do you desire a slimmer contoured face without using makeup and highlighting techniques to achieve a softer look? If you’ve never heard of cosmetic injectables to slim your jawline, you’ll be astounded to learn of the simple and effective way you can achieve a defined and sleek appearance.


At Bayside Cosmetic, we offer face slimming cosmetic procedures using anti-wrinkle injectables to create definition and help you achieve a slim-looking jawline. While fillers are commonly associated with adding fullness and plumpness, they can also be strategically used for slimming and contouring the face.


Let’s take an in-depth look at our facial slimming treatments and whether they are the right cosmetic enhancements for your needs.

Why We Lose Definition in Our Face as We Age

Aging is a natural part of life and with it comes a loss of facial volume, leaving our faces less symmetrical and defined. This is because we lose fat, collagen and elastin responsible for maintaining suppleness across our cheeks and a wrinkle-free complexion, from our foreheads and eyes to our mouth and chin. The loss of plumpness also leaves us looking tired, our eyes sunken and our jaws less contoured.


The easiest way to restore much of what is lost is with dermal fillers. Fillers are so versatile and unique that they are also applied to slim the face and create definition where certain features are less prominent.


You may consider facial slimming to soften the appearance of a very masculine jaw and rounded face. By applying filler or anti-wrinkle injections, we can restore the volume, shape, and contouring that decreases with age.

Facial Slimming is a suitable cosmetic enhancement for the following facial changes:

  • Double chin
  • Droopy or sunken cheeks
  • Loose skin and lack of suppleness
  • Prominent jawline
  • Prominent masseter muscles (muscles of chewing)

Our face slimming treatment does not target the existing fatty tissue in the face and is not a weight-loss procedure. Discover how we can help you restore a softer, feminine, and more supple facial appearance by learning how our face slimming treatment works.

How Does Facial Slimming Work?

When we scrunch up our noses or narrow our eyes, we’re unknowingly working our facial muscles, which causes the skin to contract. The more we contract our muscles, the more prominent our wrinkles and the signs of aging become.


When we apply anti-wrinkle injections to slim the face, we relax tight muscles located just below the fatty tissue that are responsible for a round and less defined shape. Because we work our masseter muscles when we chew food, it can also create a larger jawline that is out of proportion with the rest of our face. The result is a protruding or masculine jawline.


The primary muscles that we target are located in the lower jaw and are known as the masseter muscles. By using anti-wrinkle injections in the targeted areas of your lower face, we can inhibit the masseter muscles from continuously contracting, which results in the muscles decreasing in size and a more slimmed and feminine jawline.


As women, we understand that you may desire a softer, leaner jawline to create a heart or V-shaped face rather than have strong masculine lines. Our cosmetic enhancement is designed to target problem areas and help you feel confident about your beautiful contours and feminine appearance.

How Long Will My Results Last?

At Bayside Cosmetic Medicine Clinic, we use safe and approved anti-wrinkle injections that can last up to 4 months. As it is a temporary enhancement, it is suitable for all who desire a slimmer, toned appearance by targeting the masseter muscles. Our dermal fillers, including cheek fillers, can add suppleness and volume to the sullen or sunken areas of the face in combination with our slimming treatment.

Is Facial Slimming Safe?

Facial slimming using injectables is considered a safe and temporary way to achieve the look you want. Recovery is quick, with some patients reporting only minor swelling and bruising at the target sites that should disappear after 24 hours.
