Jaw muscle, massetter muscle reduction with botox, prominent jaw correction
Thanks for your question.
In our practice, we have used this with great success for many patients.
If the Massetter muscle is over active, it can cause less refined jaw angle which can significantly improve with injection of Botox (xeomin).
If done artistically, it can have dramatic improvement.
Depending on the anatomy we have combined this with other ancillary procedures such as buccal fat reduction, chin lipo, chin implant or chin augmentation with dramatic, beautiful and natural looking results.
Botox in Masseter Muscle
The effects of Botox last about 3-4 months. Cost of procedure varies depending on the cost per unit and how many units are used. Typically I use 30-40 units for this area.
It is important to consult with a Board Certified Dermatologist with plenty of experience injecting this area to receive an appropriate treatment.
