Does Masseter Botox Work?

By August 8, 2022 No Comments
When considering Botox treatment, most people likely picture forehead or glabella injections. However, Botox has several uses around the face. One of the growing Botox treatments is masseter Botox which involves injecting Botox into the masseter muscle to promote slimming of the face. Let’s look at the question, “Does masseter Botox work?”   The masseter muscle is one of the largest on the face and helps jaw movement. People can accidentally build up their muscle through frequent gum chewing, teeth grinding, and other conditions. Some people may naturally have a large masseter muscle.    Botox deactivates specific movements and helps weaken the masseter muscle. Over time, this can make the masseter muscle look smaller and in turn slim the face. This works in several different ways and can work on almost anyone to help define the jaw. It is a great complement to Kybella or submental liposuction.   To learn more and schedule a consultation, call us at 425-775-3561.
