Facial Slimming With Botox in Winnipeg, at The First Glance
Serving Patients Across Canada for 25+ Years
What is Facial Slimming With Botox?
Facial Slimming is performed with precise Botox injections into the masseter muscle (jaw muscle) to slim your face into a softer, more refined, and narrow “V” shape.
The masseter muscle is a chewing muscle that goes along the edge of your jawbone. The masseter is responsible for creating a wider, square-shaped, more masculine looking jawline. Botox injections weaken the masseter muscle, reducing its size to create a slimmer, softer, more refined face shape. An added benefit of Facial Slimming is the emphasis on your cheekbones as the lower part of your face slims down over time. Botox injections to the masseter also relieves muscle tension and TMJ pain in the jaw from grinding or clenching your teeth.
Facial Slimming is an advanced medical treatment that should only be performed by an Expert Nurse Injector or a Board Certified Facial Plastic Surgeon in a fully accredited medical clinic. There are many veins, arteries, and nerves in the face making it extremely important to be treated by a licensed medical professional with a physician onsite.

Things To Know Before Your Botox Injections
Patients who are pregnant or breastfeeding cannot get Botox treatments.
To minimize bruising, please avoid alcohol for at least 48 hours before your injections. To improve the longevity of your treatment, we recommend that you refrain from gym workouts for 48 hours and avoid excessive heat (saunas, hot yoga) for 1 week after your treatment.
After your injections, you may feel slight discomfort and be tempted to rub or massage the injection sites; this is to be avoided. Your skin needs to settle and heal without irritation. The typical time to recover after Botox is approximately 2 to 4 hours. Although it may be tempting to take a nap during that time, it’s best to avoid lying down or putting pressure on your face.
For optimal results, we recommend that you follow these guidelines so you can reduce the risk of bruising.
