Masseter Muscle Reduction/Jawline Slimming

Botulinum Toxin for masseter muscle

Botulinum toxin is used cosmetically to paralyze the facial muscles. Functionally, this treatment can improve the pain that some people experience in their jaw and also alleviates uncomfortable night grinding. From a cosmetic perspective, it will also work to slim the muscle and create more narrow lower face and sleeker jaw appearance for you.

HOW DO WE DO THE INJECTION?

Are you A GOOD CANDIDATE?

This treatment is suitable for people who have the masseter muscle problem because the procedure targets the muscle that is located on the side of the jaw on both sides. If you have a wide jawline, strong masseter muscle, or you have asymmetrical face looking to make your face more symmetrical, this treatment is ideal for you. Also, some young girls who like to chew hard food may face the same issue that their muscle give volume and fullness to the sides of the jaw. 

By injecting botulinum toxin to relax the masseter muscles, the large muscle will decrease and shrink down in size over time. As a result, the toxin will work to slim down the jaw area and make your face appear slimmer.

However, the injection on jawline does not recommended for people who have prior allergic reaction, infection or inflammation on injection areas, neuromuscular disease, coagulation dysfunction-related diseases or anticoagulation therapy. Moreover, injections are not ideal for pregnant or breastfeeding women. If you are not sure if the jaw reduction is suitable for you, just schedule a consultation with our doctors to determine whether you are a good candidate for this treatment.
