In the past, the only way to reshape a square, boxy jawline was to undergo surgery in which the jawbone was filed down. Today, jawline reduction can be safely and non-invasively achieved using BOTOX injections. BOTOX can be administered into the masseter muscle to help provide the client with a more streamlined appearance in the lower face. A softer, rounder jaw can be seen in about 6 weeks.
If you would like a more feminine, lean look, consider jawline reduction with BOTOX at Allure Aesthetic. Our team of trusted, licensed cosmetic professionals can help you to achieve your ideal aesthetic vision with no downtime, discomfort or scarring.
What is Masseter BOTOX?
The masseter muscle bridges the lower jaw and the cheeks and assists in the process of chewing. Often patients who grind or clench their teeth will experience a widening of the jawline due to an enlarged masseter muscle, creating a more masculine look in the lower face. An oversized masseter muscle can not only alter the shape of a person’s face, but can also cause asymmetry in the jawline when one side is more prominent than the other.
BOTOX, a muscle relaxer, can be injected into the masseter muscle, softening its appearance and restoring a more oval, feminine facial shape. With BOTOX, you will still be able to smile, chew and make all your normal facial expressions, except the masseter muscle won’t have to do so much work. With regular injections every 3-6 months, it will gradually shrink to a more pleasing size.

Who is a good candidate for Masseter BOTOX?
If you are unhappy with the shape of your lower face due to an enlarged masseter muscle, BOTOX may be able to help. If your jaw appears wider when you bite down and you have struggled with teeth grinding, it might be time to consider a cosmetic intervention. BOTOX is an excellent option for anyone suffering from TMJ or Bruxism, as well as those who deal with chronic migraines caused by a clenching of the jaw.
What happens after my procedure?
Within one week of treatment, jaw clenching and tension headaches will be greatly reduced. The masseter muscle will appear much softer within about one month after your BOTOX session. The only side effects with BOTOX are some minor bruising at the injection site, but this fades quickly, usually within a few hours. There is no downtime, so you can return to your normal schedule right away. Most clients return after 6 months for additional injections to maintain their results long-term.
