Jawline BOTOX®: What Is the Masseter Muscle?

The masseter muscle is a rectangular-shaped muscle in the face and jaw and is one of the main muscles involved in chewing. Just like lifting weights will increase the size of arm muscles, grinding or clenching the teeth repeatedly due to stress or other causes can lead to enlarged jaw muscles. You can feel this muscle prominently along the jaw when you clench your teeth together.

What Is Masseter BOTOX®?

The jawline is an important feature that frames the face and helps to keep other features balanced. Your facial contour plays an important role in first impressions, and a sharp, sculpted jawline is associated with strength and health. Aging, weight changes, genetics, or a combination of all the above may prevent many people from achieving the more chiselled, well-defined jawline they desire.

This muscle may also become very tight or enlarged if you clench your teeth frequently. That’s where jawline BOTOX® comes in. BOTOX®—which contains botulinum toxin as its active ingredient—is traditionally known for being the gold standard for minimizing wrinkles, but it can also enhance the jaw area.

Jaw BOTOX®—also referred to as jawline BOTOX®, masseter BOTOX®, or masseter muscle BOTOX®—is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that can help create a more defined, visible, and narrow lower face with a more V-shaped look by partially relaxing the masseter muscle. Essentially, jawline BOTOX® slims your face by reducing the size of the masseter muscle to give the face a more youthful and slender appearance while also bringing emphasis to your cheekbones.

Masseter BOTOX®: What Are BOTOX® for Jaw Clenching and Jaw BOTOX® for Teeth Grinding?

Using masseter BOTOX® to stop teeth grinding can be a highly effective treatment. Masseter BOTOX® for TMJ (temporomandibular joint disorders) is another option, since the medication can be injected into the jaw muscles to prevent excessive clenching.

Beyond Jaw BOTOX®: What Else Can You Treat With BOTOX® Injections?

Jawline BOTOX® is one of the most popular treatments available, but this injectable is highly versatile and has a variety of benefits aside from slimming the jaw area. Beyond jaw BOTOX®, some of the most common BOTOX® injection sites are on the upper third of the face—on the forehead or around the eyes—where we inject BOTOX® for forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet. BOTOX® face treatments include various location options such as under eyes BOTOX® to reduce signs of aging that develop below the eyes, BOTOX® brow lift to elevate the eyebrows, BOTOX® for marionette lines to lift downturned corners of the mouth, BOTOX® for smile lines, treatments for chin dimples, injections for unfurling the upper lip, neck BOTOX® to reduce banding, treatments to reduce excessive sweating, and BOTOX® for migraines to help prevent migraine headaches.

Is Masseter BOTOX® for Jowls Effective?

Sagging skin below the chin and jawline area is a common sign of aging referred to as jowls. If you’re thinking of masseter BOTOX®, you may also be wondering: Can BOTOX® lift jowls? While masseter BOTOX® in the jaw for clenching can be effective, masseter BOTOX® for sagging jowls won’t typically deliver impressive results. Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa has other treatment options available for this specific cosmetic concern.

What Are Some Jawline Enhancement Treatments Aside from Masseter BOTOX®?

Thinking beyond “BOTOX® near me?” CoolSculpting® Elite and Kybella® are two non-surgical treatments that can reduce fat between the chin and neck to improve the appearance of a double chin for a more sculpted jawline. Facial fillers to enhance the jawline can also complement the results of jawline BOTOX®. Talk to our Cirillo Cosmetic Dermatology Spa team to get a comprehensive list of treatment options, discuss cost, and determine which is best for you and your goals.
