Masseter Botox

Masseter Botox | Jaw Botox

The masseter muscles are mid to lower facial muscles. These masseter muscle are primarily responsible for the opening and closing of the jaw. You use these muscles each time you eat, chew gum or clench your teeth. Larger masseter muscles can make the face shape appear square and some people can experience one masseter muscle larger than the other giving them an unsymmetrical appearance.

Having larger or more prominent masseter muscles can make women and men feel their face shape is too wide or square. The most common reasons for larger masseter muscles are genetics, dental problems such as excessive chewing on one side, stress related tooth gnashing, excessive gum chewing and clenching (bruxism) or grinding. Whatever the person’s individual reasons, Botox is likely to be successful treatment to create a more flattering overall result and restore symmetry to the face.

Benefits of Masseter Botox (Jaw Botox)

Jawline slimming- The treatment with Botox will create a slimmer more contoured jawline. It allows you to soften your features.
Reducing pain – Masseter pain can be a symptom of grinding the teeth. The Botox will cause the muscle to shrink and therefor relieve pain and discomfort.
Safe, non-invasive Treatment- Jaw Botox is a non-invasive treatment and is a method of jaw reduction and facial slimming without the use of surgery.

Who is Masseter Botox (Jaw Botox) for?

Masseter muscle Botox is suitable for anyone wanting to contour and balance their jawline. It can also help to give a symmetrical appearance to anyone who may have a more prominent masseter muscle on one side of their face. It can help to change your overall face shape and it may relieve symptoms of bruxism. You should avoid this Botox masseter treatment if you have allergies that will affect the treatment and are pregnant or breastfeeding.

What does the Masseter Botox (Jaw Botox) involve?

Firstly, you will have a consultation with Rupesh to discuss your goals and expectations for having the masseter treatment. Then a brief visual assessment of the masseter area to be treated will be carried out. Botox is then skilfully injected into the jawline and masseter muscle using a fine short needle. These are just a few, low pain injections and normally don’t cause much discomfort at all. This Botox will then soften features and relax the muscles in your jawline. When the masseter muscles are relaxed they shrink slightly in size creating a slimmer more defined jawline. Botox is a non-invasive treatment and is a method of jaw reduction and facial slimming without surgery. Recovery time for masseter Botox is none to minimal.

Masseter Botox Pre-treatment advice

Before the Botox masseter treatment you are advised to discontinue the consumption of alcohol for a few days as this can worsen the swelling. It is wise to also avoid taking blood thinners such as Aspirin, if possible, for this reason.

Masseter Botox Post-treatment advice

After the Masseter Botox treatment has been performed you may experience some slight redness and swelling around the masseter muscle, this usually resolves within a few hours. It is possible to return to your normal activities straight away but you will be advised for a few days to avoid:
. Touching or rubbing the injected masseter area
. Laying or leaning down, sleep on your back
. Exercise
. Drinking alcohol
Botox takes several days to initially start working, with the full results being seen after a few weeks.
