Contour formation using botulinum toxin (small face and gill formation)
Some people have bulging gills due to fat or bone, but in most cases it is due to hypertrophy of the masseter muscle.
It can also cause stiff shoulders and teeth grinding.
If left untreated, it not only causes stiff shoulders and headaches, but also puts a heavy load on the molars, making them more likely to develop alveolar pyorrhea, losing teeth at a young age, and not being able to undergo implant surgery.
Abnormal masseter muscle hypertrophy can have a major impact on the whole body, so it is a treatment that has great physical benefits as well as cosmetic purposes, and requires skilled technique, accurate injection amount, and injection at the injection site. That's the point.
Director Nobuhiro Suetake, who has over 30 years of clinical experience as a cosmetic surgeon, will personally perform the treatment.
A drug called botulinum toxin is injected into the masseter muscles (gills) on both sides to reduce the volume of the masseter muscles, creating a slimmer face line and creating a smaller face.
This will be treatment with medicines that will be used under the personal responsibility of the doctor.

Effect of Ella treatment
Effective from about 1 months later
It takes a month or more for the muscles to atrophy and become smaller.There is no problem with functionality.Even if the masseter muscle is completely atrophied, the temporalis muscle still works, so you will not be unable to move your mouth or chew things.The injections last for about six months, but the effects last for a long time because the muscles atrophy.You may want to add a second dose to make the effect last longer.
