Botox has been used for jawline reduction in the masseter muscle. There is no specific contraindication for exercise induced asthma and Botox. Please consult a board certified dermatologist with a great deal of experience with Botox for the best cosmetic results.
There are no contraindications associated with Botox for patients with asthma. I would recommend having a board certified facial plastic surgeon, plastic surgeon, or dermatologist perform the injections. Each is a fantastic choice. I hope this helps, and I wish you the best of luck.
Botox may be safely used to treat masseter muscle hypertrophy in select patients. It may take several sessions to see results and is best combined with a strategy to reduce tooth grinding at night or excessive jaw clenching. Consult with an experienced botox injector to see if you are a candidate. Contraindications for botox include neurologic conditions. These and risks of treatment should be discussed with your doctor.
Botox masseter injections are safe when performed by an experienced physician injector. I am not aware of any contraindication for Botox in asthmatic patients. I hope this information is helpful.

Asthma is not considered a contraindication to Botox. This means that yes, a person with exercise induced asthma can generally receive Botox injections.

Yes. Botox for jaw line reduction affects the masseter muscle that inserts on the side of the jaw.
It will not affect your breathing.
