What is the Masseter Muscle?

The masseter muscle is essential for jaw functions like chewing, eating, and clenching. It stretches from the cheekbone to the lower jawbone.

Overuse of this muscle can cause problems like bruxism (teeth grinding), TMJ disorder, jaw pain, headaches, migraines, and an enlarged jawline, calling the need for Masseter Botox.

While some men might find a more pronounced jawline attractive, it can result in a wider or more masculine appearance for women, which they might not prefer.

What is Masseter Muscle Botox?

Botox treatment at Glow & GO Aesthetic Clinic, is widely used to address various muscular conditions by injecting Botulinum toxin type A into the angle of the jaw’s masseter muscle.

This procedure temporarily relaxes the muscle, which can reduce the muscle’s size and give the face a slimmer appearance. Also, Botox is a beneficial therapy for alleviating bruxism (teeth grinding) and improve facial aesthetics.

How Masseter Botox Works

Botox reduces the masseter muscles’ size and activity by blocking acetylcholine. When injected in the masseter muscle of the face, it helps with a painful teeth grinding condition at night and also reshape the enlarged jaw.

Initial effects are visible in weeks, with full results in one to two months. Our Skin Specialist in Lahore offers Botox Jaw Reduction Treatment to relieve teeth grinding pain and reshape a square jaw.

Can Botox for Masseter Reduction affect my smile?

Extensive research and clinical experience suggest that Masseter Botox into the chewing muscle typically does not significantly affect the ability to smile.

As a result, individuals can expect minimal interference with their smile.

The ultimate goal of the Jaw Slimming Botox is the reduction in size and the strength of the masseter muscle, with minimal interference in the ability to chew. While there may be some initial discomfort or adjustment in chewing patterns post-treatment, these effects are usually temporary and resolve as the muscles adapt to the Botox injections.

Please also note that experience of the patient may vary. Therefore, our medical expert recommends you to approach the procedure with an understanding of its potential effects and to consult with a qualified professional for personalized guidance.
