What are masseters?
The Masseters, also known as the chewing muscles, are situated on each side of your jaw angle. One common worry associated with treating the Masseter muscles is potential difficulty in chewing or eating post-treatment. However, it’s important to note that the Masseters represent just one of the four chewing muscles.

What is Masseters Jaw Slimming Injections?
Jaw slimming treatment aims to refine a prominent square jawline.
There are two primary reasons why jaw slimming is advantageous:
Firstly, it offers an aesthetic enhancement by slimming and softening the jawline.
Secondly, it addresses bruxism, marked by excessive teeth clenching and grinding, leading to enlarged jaw muscles and subsequent tension and pain.
By employing muscle relaxants, we can inject into your Masseter muscle, helping you achieve the desired outcome.

How Does it Work?
Muscle relaxant is strategically injected into the Masseter muscle on both sides of the face, targeting multiple points to diminish jaw size. Precise dosage and injection points significantly impact the muscle’s slimming for both aesthetic enhancement and relief from tension and discomfort.
The administered amount varies, depending on factors such as your medical background, history of Bruxism, whether it’s your initial or subsequent injection, or if you’re aiming for an aesthetic slimming outcome. Immediate results aren’t expected, with the slimming effects typically visible between 2 to 6 weeks post-treatment. A follow-up top-up dose at about 6 weeks after the initial treatment is common to further reduce muscle size.
Consistent treatments contribute to muscle atrophy and gradual shrinking over time, potentially extending the intervals between treatments.

Being fully informed about potential side effects is crucial if you’re considering anti-wrinkle injections. Fortunately, these side effects are usually temporary and confined to the injection site area.
Common temporary side effects include:
- Rare eyelid drooping
- Facial pain
- Muscle weakness
In exceedingly rare cases, there’s a chance that side effects might extend to other areas, leading to more severe complications. These complications could involve difficulties in swallowing, speaking, or breathing due to muscle weakening. However, such serious complications typically occur with high doses of botulinum toxin.
As with any medical procedure, consulting with a professional and understanding potential risks and side effects is essential to ensure preparedness for your initial injection.
