The masseter muscle is a major facial muscle located in the jaw that is associated with chewing and teeth grinding, TMJ or Bruxism. An enlarged masseter muscle can result in a wide or square jaw, which can be considered to be quite masculine. By injecting this muscle with Botox, the muscle weakens and over the course of times reduces in size, thereby reshaping the face to achieve softer, more rounded, oval proportions.

Non-surgical jaw reduction is a very popular treatment amongst female patients as this method of face reshaping, without the need for surgical intervention, allows patients to re-contour a strong jawline or wider lower face with the aim of achieving a more feminine, graceful appearance without the associated expense and risks of surgery.

This treatment is also popular for those that grind their teeth or clench a lot causing beaches as it can stop or reduce teeth grinding and teeth clenching.

All anti wrinkle injections take 14 days to see full results, some people may see slight results earlier than 14 days but your full result will not be visible until day 14. You are able to get a top up if you still have visible wrinkles or movement between day 14 to day 21 if you miss your top up you must wait the full cycle of 2 months before you can repeat it again. Anti wrinkle treatments last roughly 2-4 months.
