Masseter Muscle Injections
The masseter muscle runs along the cheek and sometimes can lead to a angular square jaw in women. Relaxing the masseter muscle can help to take away the square look and soften the lower face.
Botulinum toxin A is a great solution for treating a prominent jawline. It temporarily limits the movement of muscles underneath the layers of your skin, can be used to relax the masseter muscle along your cheekline.
Botulinum toxin A will then be injected directly into your masseter muscles. You may feel some discomfort during this injection, but it should only last for a couple of seconds. Downtime is minimal.
The results are typically seen within a week, lasting anywhere from four to six months.
