How Does Jawline or Masseter BOTOX® Work?

The masseter muscle–a rectangular shaped muscle located in the jaw area–is one of the main muscles involved in chewing. The main function of this muscle is to elevate the jawbone, bringing the teeth together in a chewing motion. When the masseter muscle is overactive due to repeatedly clenching or grinding the jaw, it can grow larger over time and lead to a bulky or heavy jaw area. For some people, this can cause a “square” jaw.

The benefits of BOTOX® go beyond simply reducing wrinkles in the upper face. Masseter BOTOX® works by reducing overly prominent masseter muscles that are responsible for excessive clenching. BOTOX® on the masseter muscle relaxes the muscle and makes it difficult for it to contract, thereby reducing jaw pain. By relaxing the muscle, jawline BOTOX® will cause it to eventually decrease in size so it shrinks and thins out.

What Does Jawline BOTOX® Address?

There are many functional and aesthetic benefits associated with masseter BOTOX®. For example, masseter BOTOX® for TMJ is highly effective. This treatment is commonly used for temporomandibular disorders such as TMJ disorders and bruxism (grinding or clenching of the teeth that can result in jaw pain, headaches, tightness, and other symptoms). It protects your teeth from chipping and cracking. Aside from providing relief for the symptoms of teeth grinding, masseter BOTOX® also can be a type of face slimming BOTOX®. It helps to slim the jawline for patients who are bothered by a widening jaw, creating a narrower and tapered lower face, and preserves the appearance of the teeth.
