I got xeomin injected in my jaw area to slim down my face and the square jaw line. It was done 4 days ago and now when I chew and bite down the muscle protrudes a lot and looks like a big ball. Will this go away and when? What can I do to make it go away? I've been getting Botox in that area since 2007 and this is my first time using Xeomin. Is it safe to get Botox to make the muscle go down again??
Can xeomin have a reverse affect on people? I got it injected in my jaws and it's actually doing the exact opposite. (photo)

Jaw muscle bunching up afew days after Xeomin
I think it is possible that as one portion of your very large masseter muscle was being affected and relaxing, other portions that either were not injected or not yet affected by what was injected were still active.
I usually inject in at least two areas in each masseter muscle because I use very concentrated Xeomin, Botox or Dysport, but a physician who was using very dilute concentrations might inject a larger volume in only one place, in which case you might see an an even onset of effect, although potentially the same effect ultimately.

Injections in the jaw
This sometimes happens.
It appears 2-3 days after treatment, and usually goes away after 1 week. Once, I had to re-treat an area with a little more product. Otherwise, it usually gets better, with best results at 2-3 weeks. Please update us!

Can Xeomin have reverse effect on jaw?
Since you just had the Xeomin for your jaw 4 days ago, you have most likely not seen the full effect from the treatment yet. I would recommend waiting 1-2 weeks to see how it looks and if you still feel it is worse, you should contact your injector to be evaluated. There would be no harm in using Botox again if that was necessary.
