Jaw Slimming with Botox - Thunder Bay

Botox can be used to treat hypertrophic masseter muscles, which is a condition in which the masseter muscles in the jaw are enlarged and cause a square-shaped jawline. The masseters are responsible for biting and chewing, in some cases, they are overdeveloped due to excessive teeth-grinding and jaw-clenching.

Botox injections into the masseter muscles can help reduce their size and give the face a more slender and contoured appearance.

Jawline slimming with Botox temporarily blocks the masseters’ contracting movements. You are still able to bite and chew, but the movements are limited. The reduced activity makes the muscles atrophy and shrink. The effects of a slimmed and contoured jawline appear gradually a few weeks after the Botox treatment and can last 3-6 months. After that, the masseter muscles start contracting as they did before Botox.

In addition to jaw slimming Botox injections can target the muscles responsible for the downward pull of the chin, such as the mentalis muscle. By selectively relaxing these muscles, Botox can help reduce the appearance of a dimpled or pebbled chin, resulting in a smoother and more refined chin contour!
