We often have patients who come in complaining that they are noticing heaviness to their lower face as they get older. Part of what they are seeing is skin laxity and descent of facial fat causing a “jowly” appearance. Another part of this heaviness effect, however, is an enlargement and squaring of the angle of the jaw. With time, many people develop an enlargement of their masseter muscle.
This is the main muscle responsible for chewing. Either through genetic predisposition to enlargement or through continuous exercise via teeth grinding and clenching, or both, the muscle gets bigger. Frequently, patients are grinding and clenching only at night, so they are not even aware that they are doing it.
Helping you look and feel your best is our mission. We utilize the most innovative, and science driven approaches to create personalized treatment plans for our clients to accentuate their natural beauty.
Botox injections have been shown to be a safe and effective way to reduce the masseter muscles. Because Botox partially weakens it, the muscle becomes smaller with time. The other effect is that a weaker muscle is not able to grind like it used to, so any nighttime grinding habit is quickly broken.
Two weeks following the first treatment your care team monitors the results and adds more Botox to the area if needed. The effects can be relatively quick however it may take up to six months before the visible shrinking of the muscle can be observed.
Botox injections should be repeated every 4 months for up to a year in order to obtain optimal results. Jawline reduction is often maintained even if no further Botox injections are done after the first year of treatment.
