Facial Slimming Treatment
A slimmer, more feminine looking face is one of today’s most highly sought-after treatments, and one of our favorite treatments to perform at Lucere! We offer a safe, non-surgical approach to achieve a slimmer face, more contoured jawline and a more desirable facial profile.
The Lucere Philosophy is Look Good, Not Done. It is very important to us that our clients look fresh, rested and beautiful…without looking overdone. At Lucere, we are able to achieve this through our expertly injected neuromodulators and premium filler. Neuromodulators help relax the jaw muscles, thinning the masseter muscles for a thinner, more feminine look. Filler can also be used in the right places to contour the jawline and chin, as well as enhance the cheeks to also help achieve this look.
Benefits of Facial Slimming:
- By using advanced injection techniques, a slimmer facial appearance is achieved
- Reduces the appearance of a square jaw for a more feminine look
- Achieves a more desirable facial profile
Treatments & Results
Results: Seen within 2-14 days for Botox & 4-6 weeks for optimal results with Fillers. Regular treatments are recommended to maintain and enhance your results. This also helps to prevent lines & wrinkles from forming and/or deepening.
Lasts: Botox and other neuromodulators will last 3-4 months. Filler will last 4-18 months, depending on the type of filler and injection technique used, along with how fast your body naturally metabolizes the product.
*Each client is unique and these are general treatment guidelines.

How long do the effects of this treatment last?
The duration of effect varies. Often, for people who are new to the procedure, they may need the treatment more frequently. We treat you only with the units you need. With consistent, optimal treatment, you will only need to come in 2-3 times per year for Botox and 1-2 times a year for Filler.
How many units do I need for optimal results?
The number of units required depends on the individual, the treatment areas being addressed and the previous treatment history of the patient.
Can I react to neuromodulators?
It is possible to have an adverse reaction to any medication which is why you should see someone who is trained in the management of complications of laser and cosmetic dermatologic procedures. Though the risk of adverse reactions is very low, Lucere is proud to offer safe Anti-Wrinkle treatments in Edmonton. Our dermatologist is an expert who is often asked to intervene when patients from other clinics experience adverse side effect of skin treatments.
Will my Botox injections lead to a “frozen face?”
There is such a thing as too much Botox! When administered by our expert cosmetic injectors and Board-Certified Dermatologist at Lucere, you will be able to continue making facial expressions while having a relaxed, well-rested face with no lines. Botox should never leave you with a ‘frozen’ effect, as that means too much Botox has been administered. The treatment relaxes the treated muscles, and with a skilled injector, you will still be able to display your entire range of expressions. Our philosophy at Lucere is ‘Look Good, Not Done’ and we stand by treatments that are performed by experts in the correct way, leaving you well-rested and beautiful, not looking over done.
Does this treatment hurt?
When administered by a professional, Anti-Wrinkle treatments and Filler should not be a painful experience.
Are there any side effects?
If administered correctly by a highly trained professional, Anti-Wrinkle treatments have very few side effects. You may experience a little redness, but this effect shouldn’t last too long. Slight bruising, though rare, can also occur.
Fillers are a relatively safe treatment with not many side effects. It is normal to experience redness, swelling, tingling, firmness, and/or bruising after treatment. These effects are common and temporary, fading away within a few days after treatment. Injections in the lips may cause more swelling or bruising given the soft tissue in the area. Remember, you should always research your injector well and only allow a highly trained injector who understands the anatomy of the face to perform this treatment, in order to avoid complications.
Can I have this treatment when I am pregnant?
This is not well studied, so we do not offer this treatment to pregnant women. However, at Lucere, we believe in offering the best skin treatments in Edmonton for everyone. If you’re pregnant, we have many light procedures and skincare products that are safe to use during pregnancy to maintain a radiant glow.
Are Anti-Wrinkle treatments and Filler only for women?
Not at all! We have many male clients because they believe that Lucere is the best place for Botox and Filler for men in Edmonton. Most men require more treatment units than women, and initially they may require more frequent treatments. However, all patients will slowly require fewer treatment sessions over time.
Is Filler different than Botox?
Yes. Botox and Filler, though both injected into the face, are two different things. Instead of adding volume or filling fine lines and wrinkles, such as fillers do, Botox works by relaxing the muscles in the face, which softens expressions that lead to fine lines and wrinkles in the first place. Botox can be used alongside filler to give you a more youthful, well-rested and fresh appearance.
How much does this treatment cost?
We are very proud to offer Regional Pricing to get you the best results. Neuromodulator treatments for Facial Slimming cost between $200-$600, and if filler is used it could cost between $650-$2,400. At Lucere, we are proud to offer authentic, expertly injected neuromodulators like Botox and Dysport as well as premium filler. It is important for patients to note that other service providers dilute products at times to offer a lower cost per unit. We use predictable, reliable products that are not diluted. We treat based on what your individual needs are as no two clients are the same.
