There are various options when it comes to getting a facial slimming treatment in Los Angeles.
Genetics are involved in the bony jaw structures and the facial muscles that can cause jawlines to increase in width over time through teeth grinding and jaw clenching. The powerful masseter muscles are large and at the angle of the jaw on each side.
What can reshape that muscle and the overall shape of your face is a Botox Masseter, a drug that is injected into specific muscles. A Botox treatment will help reshape part of your face to be less square and more tampered. And with less clenching, it can help get rid of those pesky headaches.
A Botox Masseter treatment can help with jaw reduction and cheek slimming. It may take two or three treatments done over a period of a year but the end result will be well worth it in reshaping your face.
Botox can be placed in the depressor anguli oris (DAO) muscle to raise downturned corners of the mouth. It can be combined with other treatments like Voluma in the upper cheek or Vollure in the marionette lines to elevate the lower face.
Jawline contouring is designed to soften the facial contour of your jawline to give your face a more youthful appearance. The combination of the over-development of the jawline as we age and fat loss in the cheek area means your face can lose its angular shape and become square. A jawline contouring helps to reshape it and restore a more youthful and triangle type of look.
Cheeks begin to sag as fat volume, collagen, and muscle tone decrease with aging. Over time, your facial shape develops into a more boxy appearance as volume decreases and tissues descend.
For other people, the cheeks have too much volume and look too full making their face appear heavy. A cheek contouring can sculpt your cheeks and enhance the midface for a more natural appearance with long-lasting results. The goal is to have the cheek area be contoured to accentuate the cheekbones resulting in a slender look and a more definitive cheek contour.

Restylane is one of the first hyaluronic acid-based fillers mass marketed for cosmetic purposes. Like collagen, it is a substance naturally found in the skin which decreases in natural production as we age.
Restylane is an injection into the nasolabial folds (the area between the upper lip and cheeks) that results in a more natural-looking and youthful appearance. It can also plump up fine vertical lines around your mouth and fill out scars such as pockmarks from acne. Restylane is frequently used to enhance lip volume. It lasts between three to six months.
Say goodbye to your double chin, without surgery! Kybella is the only FDA-approved injectable treatment for the reduction of submental fullness, also known as a double chin. When injected into subcutaneous fat, Kybella is able to kill the fat cells prompting your body to expel them through its natural lymphatic system. In one or two injections, the providers at LACCS are able to non-surgically contour your jawline and give you a drastically younger appearance.
Kybella can reduce excess fat in other areas of the body such as the arms, bra fat, and jowls, thighs and stubborn lower stomach areas. Fatty lumps in the abdomen, arms, back, neck, shoulders and thighs can all be treated with a Kabella injection that is non-invasive and quick. Kybella can also enhance the results of a fat removal procedure like SmartLipo. The injections give body contouring results that are natural and seamless.
