Regular followers will know about my love affair with Laser Clinics Australia – Runaway Bay. That place has changed my life. I haven’t shaved my legs, underarms or waxed since October last year! Laser Hair removal is cheaper than waxing & shaving, less painful and less time consuming. I can’t believe it took me so long to do. Laser Clinics Australia has a special on NOW with 30% off Laser & Skin treatments. Don’t delay. Laser Clinics Australia, Runaway Bay: 56 303734
Regular followers will also know that I have a small girl crush on Amy who does the injectables at LCA Runaway Bay. She’s calm, patient, explains everything thoroughly and is not interested in performing any treatments that I’m not comfortable with.
Masseters! It’s been mentioned to me over and over. Basically I gather it’s the muscle on your jaw line and people always ask if I grind my teeth. I don’t, but I always grit my teeth when using force – unscrewing a lid on a tight jar, picking up bags etc.. Because of this I have developed strong muscles on the sides of my face (jaw line). Anyway Lisa (LCA Runaway Bay owner) and Amy suggested I have the muscles removed with Botox.
This conversation about Masseters has been discussed over and over for months with me constantly saying that I’m happy to remove a frown or a line etc.. BUT I don’t want to change the way I look. Amy and Lisa both explained to me that the botox injections would alter my appearances slightly, but gritting my teeth has changed my appearance and the botox would reverse that. Those comments were the ‘game changer’.
“Ok I said – lets do it. Lets see what the old Carolyn looks like!” It was also mentioned that people may comment that I looked like I had lost weight as my cheek bones would appear higher after the muscles went down. In all honestly anything that mentioned loosing weight – or looking like I had was a no brainer! Bring it on!
So here are the before and after. It took me a few months to see the difference – I could certainly feel the difference straight away if I rested my hand on my chin. In the first photo you can see on the left is before right side is after.
Both of the pics above are before. You can def see the masseters in both photos.
So there you go. I love not having masseters and do recommend it. Thank you Lisa & Amy at Laser Clinics Australia, Runaway Bay.
Talk soon. Cx
