Frequently Ask Questions
How is it done?
Botox is injected into the masseters on each side of the face and spread out at multiple points within the muscle to produce jaw reduction results. With Dr. Gitanjali proprietary 1-point botox jaw reduction technique, it only takes one single skin injection per side of jaw to reach 5 points within the muscle and is completed in under 5 minutes. It is highly effective, with minimal or no pain and absolutely no downtime at all. The jaw reduction procedure is a non surgical procedure. Face slimming and jaw reduction effect is seen at any time between 2 to 8 weeks.Our experience with the non surgical Jaw Reduction treatment / Face sliming treatment has been that almost all our patients see a noticeable reduction in their square jaw after 2 to 8 weeks.
What is so special about 1-Point V Face Slimming?
Current administration of botox to reduce one’s jaw line (square jaw reduction) will usually involve approximately 3-6 injection points on each side of the face. For many patients, 3 to 6 jabs on each side on the face can be a very frightening thought. this is innovative technique which only requires 1 skin injection point on each side of the face to reach 5 different points within the muscle. The results is exactly the same as the conventional 3 to 6 point injection technique because it also reaches the same number of points in just a single skin injection. Apart from the reduction of one’s jaw lines, the “1-point V Face™” may also include another one or two point filler injection to the chin to create a V shaped face. Conventionally, a chin filler procedure usually requires approximately 4-5 jabs or more. The “1-point V-Face™” is essentially an injection technique developed to overcome a patient’s fear of needles and pain. All that is required is 1 skin injection point per site (mentum and gnathum of chin) for the same results. The “1-point V Face™” effectively administers approximately 75% less skin injection points then conventional methods of jaw reduction and chin filler collectively. The procedure is minimally invasive and does not involve surgery.
Possible side effects
you will almost always walk out with no swelling or bruising, perhaps with just one tiny needle mark. In the first week, there may be a slight dull ache over the muscles, especially with chewing. This should be transient and resolve within a week. You should abstain from massaging the muscles and from lying down, for 4 hours after the procedure. This technique has a great advantage in reducing risks to almost negligible, since it is only 1 skin injection point within a good safety margin. Rest be assured, although the results of the botox facial sliming or non surgical square jaw reduction is clearly visible, the treatment will not radically change your facial appearance or make you look as if you “had work done”. The facial sliming or non surgical square jaw reduction gives your appearance a subtle shift, to make it look as though as you had merely lost weight or baby fats from your face. It looks natural and never “over-done”.
Skin Tightening for Face Slimming
You may also consider slimming the face by Thermage radiofrequency skin tightening or threadlift method which corrects droopy skin. Excess droopy skin can make the face look boxier and more square than it actually is. By tightening such excess skin, you can therefore achieve a much slimmer looking face without surgery.
