Masseter Botox is a non-surgical procedure that can be used to treat the jaw muscle and achieve facial slimming and a more defined jawline. It can also be a helpful treatment for those who clench and grind their teeth (bruxism). The masseter muscles are located on either side of the jaw and they are responsible for chewing. When they become overworked due to bruxism, aging or genetics, the muscle can grow and cause the face to look bulkier or squarer.

Many people who have this condition are able to reduce their jawline size with masseter muscle Botox, which can give the face a more tapered appearance and make it look more feminine. This procedure can take only a few minutes and is performed in our office. We will use a topical anesthetic to numb the area before injections. Once the masseter muscles are paralyzed, they will shrink to their normal size and create a slimmer jawline for men and women.

The effects of Masseter Botox will begin to be visible in a few days. During this time, it is important to avoid rubbing or pressing the area as this can cause bruising. In most cases, patients are able to return to their usual routines immediately after the procedure. Some individuals will need multiple sessions to achieve their desired results, and we typically recommend treatments scheduled three to six months apart.

Aside from aesthetic reasons for getting Masseter Botox, many individuals seek this treatment because of pain caused by clenching and grinding of the teeth, or bruxism. This often leads to TMJ disorder and headaches. Masseter muscle Botox can help relax the jaw and relieve the pain of bruxism, which in turn can improve quality of life.

While Masseter muscle Botox is safe and effective, it is important to consult with a medical professional before undergoing the procedure. During this consultation, a doctor will examine the jaw and face to determine whether this is the best treatment for the patient’s goals. Individuals who are pregnant or breastfeeding should not undergo this treatment, and those with neuromuscular disorders should also avoid it.

The results of masseter muscle Botox are temporary, and they will naturally wear off after several months. Injectables like Masseter muscle Botox are not an effective treatment for fatty deposits or loose skin, and they will not change the shape of the jawbone. Those seeking permanent jaw reduction should consider other surgical or minimally invasive procedures.
