Prominent Masseters treatment
You are an excellent candidate for Botox treatment of the masseters. This is not a routine injection so please go to someone that has done many of these procedure. I've been doing this injection since 1994. A risk with poor injection is a change to the smile that is temporary.
Botox for squaare jaw
Thank you for your question ptwee. I am sorry to hear about your situation. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expressions. In the lower face Botox can be placed in the masseter muscle. This will help reduce the size of the muscle and improve the square jaw. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. We are happy to offer free consultations. Good luck!

What can I do to minimise my square jaw? Would Botox in the masseter benefit my face?
Botox or Xeomin can very effectively narrow a jaw when the masseter is thick. I judge by having my patient clench his/her teeth while I determine the muscle bulk. There is little risk in trying botox to see if you like the results.

Botox to masseter muscle to reduce square jaw
Weakening/softening the masseter muscle with Botox injection is helpful in reducing the prominent square jaw you are referring to. Usually the botox is injected directly into the masseter muscle.
