Did you know it’s possible to achieve a beautiful, youthful and slimmer look for the face without going under the knife? With the continual advancement of non-surgical aesthetics, new non-surgical facial slimming techniques are being developed and fine-tuned constantly. What you might be surprised to learn is that it is some of the veteran, tried and tested aesthetic treatments that offer some of the best results. Dr Firas Al-Niaimi, an expert dermatologist, explains what each of the following options can offer his patients.
Wrinkle Relaxing Injections
Wrinkle-relaxing injections could be the answer for a slimmer, V-shaped face. A lot of the time, a build-up of muscles around the jaw are responsible for the wider, square shape that can be quite unflattering. This muscle build-up could be the result of stress, tension or general ageing, although this can be relaxed through the application of simple injections into the masseter muscles. Wrinkle-relaxing injections can stunt muscle movement by blocking nerve signals, initiating muscle atrophy, which in turn means they gradually shrink as movement is reduced. Wrinkle relaxing injections are a highly cost-effective facial slimming treatment, with no downtime or recovery.
On the other hand, your skin might be in need of tightening and firming to restore lost volume and shape, whilst combatting facial sagging. In this case, dermal filler injections make for a perfect solution, with Dr Firas often implementing the '8-point lift' technique for full facial rejuvenation. By focusing on 8 precise, targeted areas of the face, this highly bespoke treatment plan offers expert facial sculpting for a lifted and fresher facial appearance.
