The new name for Oxford & Leamington Facial Aesthetics
As we get older, the face can change shape, from a heart or oval shape to a more square appearance. This can be down to several factors, from the loss of volume in the temples and the cheeks beginning to sag down, to conditions such as bruxism (teeth grinding) or jaw clenching. A square-looking facial appearance can also be down to simple genetics, where the masseter muscles are naturally over-developed. When we think of a feminine face, we think of the upper region being the widest part when we look at it head on. Then, from the cheekbones, we expect to see a graduating slant towards the chin. However, in cases of teeth grinding or jaw clenching, where the masseter muscles are enlarged, the face can take on a more masculine appearance, widening in the jawline area.
At Rosie Cooper Aesthetics in Leamington Spa and Oxford, we offer a very simple, non-surgical treatment, to slim the lower face, producing a more feminine appearance. For this treatment, we use Botox® injections.
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin Type A) is a medically-prescribed neurotoxin, which has been used for many years to treat a myriad of medical concerns. When we inject Botox® into the masseter muscles (the muscles at either side of the jaw), it blocks the nerve receptors, responsible for these muscles and how active they are. This means that the muscles become temporarily relaxed and less active; helping to stop issues such as jaw clenching or teeth grinding. Of course you can still move your jaw and there is no visible difference in your facial movements. As the muscles become less active, they reduce in size, thus slimming the jawline for a more feminine contour.
Before any injectable treatment is carried out here at Rosie Cooper Aesthetics, we will conduct a no obligation consultation, to discuss your concerns and to examine you, as well as check your medical history to ensure that there are no contraindications, preventing or restricting the use of Botox® such as pregnancy and breast feeding. Once we are certain that this treatment will be both safe and effective for you, you can book in for your treatment. It may be that you can have the treatment on the same day, as this is a very quick, virtually pain-free treatment with no need for prior anaesthetic or downtime. However, we will never pressurise you in to having this treatment straight away if you would prefer some time to think about it.
You should notice the results after around 2 to 3 weeks, post-treatment and this will improve in the weeks that follow. No course of treatment is required for this procedure.
The results from your Botox® treatment for jawline slimming should last anything from 3 to 6 months. This makes this treatment extremely convenient for those who lead busy lives, as you will only need to return to the clinic for this treatment, on average twice a year.
Botox® has been used for many years to treat a myriad of health complaints in both adults and children. It has been licensed for cosmetic purposes for over 15 years and this includes a second-to-none safety profile for facial slimming and treating the masseter muscles for teeth griding and jaw clenching. It is a prescription only medication, therefore can only be used by medical staff, such as prescribing nurses, dentists, doctors and surgeons.
It can be possible to treat just one side of the face with Botox® injections, however, we need to ensure that this is the right approach for your individual concerns. Therefore, we will discuss your requirements, examine your face and reach a decision at your no obligation, pre-treatment consultation.
Rosie has simply changed my life. Her expertise and attention to detail have not only visually transformed my appearance but have equally given me back my confidence.
From the first conversation with Rosie I felt reassured that I would be given the best treatment. However I never expected such exceptional aftercare too.
I had a deep scar and the treatment results have reduced me to tears. There is no hard sell, just professional advice delivered in a caring and calm environment.
My advice is to book a consultation with Rosie. You too can then share your positive experience and transformations.”
Rosie always listens carefully to what I think I need, before she makes any suggestions. She has introduced me to new products by giving me her honest opinion and I have always been thrilled with the result.
I’ve been to another practitioner in the UK and one in South Africa, but Rosie’s expertise is beyond compare.
– Ms S, Oxford
I cannot thank Rosie enough for the healthier and younger looking image that I now have; my confidence and positive outlook have soared along with my looks.
I am so thrilled with Rosie’s work that I would never dream of letting another practitioner touch my skin – her results are nothing short of miraculous!
– JJ, Warwickshire
To me, the results already look like a transformation – in the subtlest way of course. I love the fact that my eyebrows have lifted, and I love the new pout. I never thought I would do this kind of treatment – I thought I would age gracefully without help! – But I’m so happy I did.
– Rachel, Oxfordshire
Once you’ve been to Rosie, I can assure you, you’ll never want to go anywhere else for treatments ever again. I would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone who wants to look more vibrant and confident.
– Maxine, Leamington Spa
