I’ve always been blessed with a round face and have always wondered about quick ways to slim my face apart from the conventional diet and exercise. Unfortunately, I do have to lose quite a lot of weight for it to be reflected on my face shape. Hence when My Clinic extended an invitation for me to try out an aesthetic treatment, this was one of the first things I asked about.
There are a few options for treatment when it comes to face slimming, of which, the most non invasive would probably be Botox. Now before you freak out, Botulism Toxin can do a few things for the face. Essentially it weakens the muscle of your choice for a few months period. Cosmetically, it can be used to prevent development of wrinkles by paralyzing the facial muscles; or in my case, weaken the masseter muscle to reshape the jaw.

Run by Dr Hoe, My Clinic is located at Damansara Utama. It’s facing the main road, so isn’t hard to locate. Before any treatment, a consultation is of course needed. And for me, the consultation itself was quick as I’ve already done my research prior to the treatment. The reason I decided to go for this:
1. Minimally invasive (just needles)
2. Quick (only couple of minutes)
3. No downtime (I had a gig that night and had no problem)
4. Fast results (typically within days and weeks)
Dr Hoe was extremely friendly and polite and showed me a few examples before proceeding with the treatment. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t scared to have needles in my face, but he reassured that it would be quick and relatively painless, only some topical anaesthetic is needed. So off we went to the treatment room.
I was asked to clench my jaw when he injected the Botox, and he was right; I barely felt anything before it was all over. Literally a lunch time procedure.
So let me show you some after pictures.
This is a day after treatment, obviously nothing has changed yet.

Note that there are still slight bump on the side of my jaw.

Just a random selfie at my music school
Generally, I’m quite pleased with the results. It’s supposed to last for a few months, though since I do use a lot of my facial muscles (to sing, of course) my masseter might strengthen slightly faster, but I guess we’ll see!
