Is Botox permanent?
Botox is a temporary treatment, and there is no way to make the effects permanent. In order to have a consistent effect, it will be necessary to repeat each treatment when the Botox wears off. In general, the Botox will last around 3 months on average. I hope this helps, and best of luck to you.
Atrophy of masseter muscle with serial Botox treatments
Botox will never effect a permanent change, but with serial treatments you will certainly notice atrophy of the muscle (thinning) and a reduction in the dose necessary for full reduction. Patients who have had 3-4 Botox treatments per year for several years will typically have very little masseter activity even when Botox has completely worn off.

Botox will never be permanent
Botox is never permanent. And you can't do anything to make it more permanent or last longer. This is the essence of the product itself. It's not permanent - and in places where we see bad problems or overinjection of an area - we are all thankful it only lasts 4-6 months!
