Non-Invasive Ways to Get a Slimmer Face

There are finally non-invasive ways to get a slimmer face, giving you the option of slimming down the shape of your face without a surgical procedure.  Non-surgical dermatological treatments, such as Thermage and Botox, can actually change the shape of your face and produce a slimmer face after a single treatment. Dr. Schweiger explains that, "Botox and Thermage are two of our most asked about therapies at Schweiger Dermatology.  Botox is used most commonly to prevent wrinkles, but the way in which it works will help to explain how it can slim down your face.  Botox blocks the neurotransmitter that stimulates muscle contraction.  Therefore, the strong masseter muscles of the jaw are unable to clench once treated; this leads to less of a 'square' appearance of the jaw and can eventually cause the large muscles of the jaw to atrophy, and become thinner.  Thermage is a radiofrequency device that is used to tighten and contour the face.  When used with the goal of creating a slimmer face, Thermage can be used in specific ways to contour the face and tighten sagging skin that creates a plump appearance of the face." Botox and Thermage are often used together, for the most optimal non-invasive face slimming treatment.  Botox will relax the clenched muscles of the jaw, which can otherwise cause a heavy appearance of the jaw.  Thermage is then used to tighten and contour the lower face, making the cheeks slimmer than they were prior to the treatment.
