What are muscle slimming injections?

These injections can effectively weaken specific muscles to obtain a slimmer appearance.

Slimmed legs and shoulders usually look aesthetically pleasing and appear more ‘elegant’. Muscle hypertrophy on the other hand can make legs and shoulders appear ‘bulky’.

This treatment can also effectively weaken masseter muscles, disabling night time teeth grinding and over time reduce the size of the muscles, making the face look more slimmed and heart-shaped.

Teeth grinding happens at night and is usually involuntary (without conscious efforts). It is detrimental to the health of the teeth and over time can result in large square jaws which look obvious and unnatural.

This treatment can be combined with the following procedures:

– Ultraformer 3 HIFU

– Dermamelan Intimate Peel

– Laser Hair Removal

– Laser Hair Bleaching

– Body Sculpting and Contouring Treatment 

The combination of treatments can be discussed at your consultation following with the bespoke treatment plan.

Before

Avoid blood thinners before your treatment.

We also recommend having any skin treatments such as HIFU, fractional microneedling RF, IPL, chemical peels etc done before you have your injections so they don’t interfere with the efficacy of the treatment.

After

Avoid massaging or sleeping on the area treated up to 48 hours after.

Avoid alcohol as it increases risk of bruising.

You may experience mild tenderness and bruises after your treatment. .

How do muscle slimming injections work?

Toxin muscle slimming treatment blocks the interaction between the muscles and the nerves. This way, the muscle cannot contract, reducing the size of bulky muscles which results in a slender appearance.

Legs will appear thinner, and the neck-shoulder line will have a more swan-shaped appearance.

Who is it suitable for?

Exercise and lifestyle may cause some muscles to bulk up and cause an undesirable appearance. Sometimes this is genetic and some people are naturally born with thicker shoulder lines and lowers legs.

This treatment shrinks those muscles and achieves a slimmer appearance.

It also treats teeth grinding, which as a side effect achieves a slimmer jaw muscle which gives the face a more contoured shape. Sometimes there is a genetic predisposition to large square jaws. Various studies have suggested that East Asians have genetically more hypertrophied masseter muscles. Large square jaws in women particularly can leave a masculine impression.

While large calf and shoulder muscles can be hereditary.

Whatever your concern, we recommend and in-depth consultation with one of our professionals to better assess your suitability.

How long does the treatment take?

The treatment takes approximately 30 minutes. A follow up appointment is booked 2-3 weeks later to assess whether further treatments are needed.

How long will the results last?

In general, the treatment will continue to have effects for 3-6 months after which the muscles will slowly regain strength and become more active again.

In the case of shoulders and calf muscles, specially if the patient keep exercising these specific muscles, they will retain shape and bulk up again. Repeat treatments are recommended at this point.

When will I see results?

The muscles at baseline often feel ‘hard’ and ‘strong’. Following the injection, the muscles will feel ‘soft’ in about 2 weeks’ time. Visible reduction in muscle size can be noticed from 4 weeks and reach a peak around 6 weeks.
