Jaw Reduction.

Neuromodulator injections for example botox are commonly used to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles on the face, but  our expert injectors can also inject Botox into the masseter facial muscle to slim the jaw and treat teeth grinding, also known as bruxism.


Botox for Jaw Reduction. 


The masseter muscle is the muscle in the jaw responsible for the chewing process. It is also the muscle that commonly causes a person to have a large, square-shaped jaw. A patient looking to slim their jawline for a softer, more oval shape without undergoing a surgical procedure can actually have botox injected into the masseter muscle to minimize the square-like appearance.

When a neuromodulator is injected into the masseter muscle, it causes the muscle to weaken and shrink slightly. It gradually begins to slim after a couple of weeks, with the full effect visible after three months. Results of the injection into the masseter muscle can last up to one year. Because the masseter muscle has fewer nerve endings than the muscles that cause facial wrinkles, the injection of botulinum toxin A lasts significantly longer in the masseter muscle. This means patients do not need to have the procedure done very often to maintain the slimmer looking jaw.


Botox for Masseter Reduction/Jaw Reduction FAQs


Q: Who should perform neuromodulator injections in the masseter muscle?

A: Injections should always be performed by an experienced, qualified injector with specialized training. Book your consultation today.


Q: Will Botox masseter injections affect chewing?

A: When patients have this procedure done, they may experience an initial weakening of the muscle, causing the muscle to feel tired fairly quickly when chewing. This side effect, however, does not usually last long and normal chewing function will return.


Q: How much does Botox for the masseter cost?

A: The cost depends on the number of units required for the treatment. This will depend on the area being treated and the severity of the issue. For instance, Botox for teeth grinding may require more units than it would for jaw reduction. Schedule a consultation today to discuss your treatment plan and the cost.


Q: Can I get masseter Botox at the same time as other cosmetic treatments?

A: Many patients do choose to get neuromodulator injections and facial fillers at the same time. For instance, if you seek Botox in the masseter to slim the jawline, you can also get facial filler injections to plump the lips or fill in under eye hollows. Schedule a consultation with one of our experts today to discuss your individualized treatment plan.


Q: Are the injections painful?

A: Most patients do not experience much pain during the injectable procedure. There may be some slight swelling and/or redness after the injection, but patients can return to their normal daily activities immediately following treatment.
