BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medicine that is injected into muscles and used to temporarily improve the look of moderate to severe forehead lines, crow’s feet lines, and frown lines between the eyebrows in adults.
BOTOX derived from botulinum toxin type A, is an effective non-surgical treatment for facial lines and wrinkles and an established brand name. The Botox treatment results in a youthful appearance by reducing muscle contractions. From the treatment of “crow’s feet” at the edge of the eyes to forehead lines, frown lines and glabellar lines (wrinkles between the brows), Botulinum toxin injections can smooth a wide range of fine facial lines and wrinkles caused by facial expressions with a simple 10-minute treatment. This is an effective and safe way to reduce and soften wrinkles and lines for both men and women most commonly around the eyes, nose and lips and across the forehead area.
There are several areas of the face where neuromodulators are commonly used. The forehead consists of 3 main muscles (the powerful corrugator, the frontalis, and the procerus). These muscles cause forehead and frown lines. The orbicularis oculi muscles create crow’s feet at the corners of the eyes. These lines are not only signs of aging but can also make you look “tired” or “cross” at rest.

The masseter muscle is a facial muscle that connects our lower jaw to our cheeks. It is one of the several muscles responsible for chewing. When this muscle becomes enlarged for a variety of reasons, usually in patients who grind or clench their teeth, it can dramatically change the shape of your lower face.
BOTOX or Botulinum Toxin A is a muscle relaxer. It’s use include to temporarily paralyses the muscle it’s injected into. Masseter Botox can also change your face shape and manage facial pain.
Non-surgical jaw reduction is a very popular treatment at our medical aesthetic clinic.
WHAT IS MASSETER BOTOX?
Botox injections or Botulinum Toxin A in the masseter muscle will relax this facial muscle, and in turn, shrink the jawline (Jawline Slimming) and reduce the square appearance of the jawline.
Botox is generally solely associated with anti-wrinkle treatments. But it can help with a variety of conditions from hyperhidrosis to enlarged masseter muscle
The result of injecting botulinum toxin injection into the masseter muscle is that a square face will morph into a more V-shaped appearance. Injections of Botox in the masseter muscle are a safe, non-invasive method for jaw reduction and facial slimming, which can be performed in just a few minutes.
WHAT IS THE MASSETER MUSCLE?
The masseter muscle is located on each side of your jaw and is one of the main muscles involved with chewing. When someone chews or grinds their teeth too often, the masseter muscles can increase in size and cause issues with the shape of your face.
There most common reasons for the increased size of the masseter muscles are:
- Clenching (bruxism), particularly at night
- Excessive chewing
- Chewing on only one side of the mouth
