Experience the Benefits of Masseter Botox

The masseter muscle is located on the face from the cheekbone to the angle of mandible, and its function is to protrude and elevate the lower jaw. It is one of the muscles that help us to chew.

There are a number of reasons why a person may choose to undergo masseter Botox. These include:

  • Reducing jaw tension, pain, and clenching
  • Managing teeth grinding
  • Contouring a square jaw
  • Relieving headaches
  • Creating a balanced face shape

How Does Masseter Botox Work?

Botox is an injectable muscle relaxer that is often used to make wrinkles, such as those on the forehead, less noticeable. However, in the case of the masseter muscles, it is effective at managing facial pain and changing face shape.

Before patients undergo this type of Botox, we will discuss their goals and concerns as well as perform an examination of the jaw and face. This allows us to determine the correct injection site and how many syringes you need.

The procedure itself is quick and easy, lasting for around 15 minutes. First, we will clean the skin in order to reduce the risk of infection. Topical anesthesia may also be used to numb the area.

Next, we will prepare a syringe with the botulinum toxin that will be administered and this will be injected into the masseter muscle (on one or both sides of the face, depending on the case). The needle will be slowly withdrawn as the Botox is injected. The total number of syringes necessary will depend on what condition is being treated.

Following the procedure, patients will be able to immediately resume their normal activities. For the following 24 hours, patients should avoid rubbing the treated area, placing pressure on it, and exercising as these actions may spread the toxin to other parts of the face.

Masseter Botox typically lasts for between 4 and 6 months. Follow-up treatments are available to maintain the desired results.
