Some say that lose weight could make your face smaller, but from what I know slimming down doesn't affect your face getting smaller. Because masseters are two bulky muscles also known as chewing muscles on each side of the angle of our jaw which help us to chew and it is possible that you have big masseter muscles that's why it causing your face look rounder, bigger or too square. With excessive chewing or teeth grinding, the masseters at the jawline can grow to quite a size causing the jaws to look square, much like how body builders grow their abs and pects by training them. But don't worry there's a way to slim the jawline which is injecting Botox to relaxing the muscles for shrinking the jawline, thereby reducing the square jaw appearance.
And yeap, that's how I have my smaller face right now. This treatment is called Skinartesse Roti Face is a customized non surgical face slimming treatment by Dr Rachel Chew from Rachel Chew Clinic based on individual face, hence there is no fixed treatment to treat chubby face.
In my case, Dr Rachel Chew combined few material for me. She injected botulinum toxin (botox) by Allergan on my jaw to relax my muscle and some on my chin so that my chin look more define. She also added some hyaluronic acid (dermal fillers) by Juvederm on my chin and Skinartesse Power Lift treatment to burn the fat on the side of my face. I'm so glad that I met Dr. Rachel my most trusted doctor which because of her, I feel more confident with my look right now and I can take nice side profile already :p
Many people think that botox and fillers are the same thing but no they are not. Fillers fill and Botox relaxes. I know some of you may ask, how often should you get fillers and botox injections? And you're probably wondering how long do they last. While these fillers only last about a year, if someone gets work done that they aren't happy with the result, there is a reversing agent called hyaluronidase that breaks up the hylauronic acid. This will immediately eliminate the filler. If you don't like the results of your Botox treatment, you can only simply wait it out. Botox isn't permanent so in a few months, the treated area should return to its pre-injection state. This can take about 4 months or more. It depends on your age, older people with less muscle tone may see results diminish sooner than those with younger, firmer facial muscles. However, this seems to differ from one person to another. Some obtain a longer-lasting effect with repeated use, while others seem to develop a resistance to the drug and need more frequent treatments. But normally doctors are not recommended to have injections in the same injection site more frequently than every three months. As with the injection of any medication, your body's immune system can develop antibodies to the medication, which render the drug less effective or possibly cause development of an allergy to the drug. The more frequently the drug is injected or the more quantity that is injected, the higher the risk for these antibodies to be formed against the drug.
I sounded like an expert LOL Actually I got all these infomation from a website just to let you guys know more about fillers and botox heh. Don't worry people, fillers and botox are found naturally in nature and used in proper doses by approved licensed doctors, they are effectively safe. They are not that scary as you thought, you may have heard some of the side effects but all these side effects are not really an issue with them, they are relatively safe when performed by an experienced doctor, so most importantly select your doctor carefully!
Here's some pictures of me before and after with the treatment,
