Botox in the Masseter

Tips for This Treatment:

  • Duration of Effects: The effects of Botox in the masseter muscle typically last for about six months. After this period, you may need a follow-up treatment to maintain the results.

  • Gradual Improvement: While some relief from teeth grinding and jaw clenching may be noticeable within a week, it may take up to a month to see the full slimming effect on your jawline as the muscle gradually weakens.

  • The amount of Botox varies (60-100 units) depending on the muscle.

Who and why:

  • It's great for people who grind their teeth, have headaches, or don't like their jaw's shape

  • Headaches and clenching go away in about a week, and the face becomes slimmer after a month.

  • There are very few side effects, maybe some bruising.

  • Patients should come back every six months for the best results

  • This can be done for both cosmetic and medical reasons (TMJ)
