Botox takes longer than two days to see results
Thank you for your question Pon Pon. Botox can be used in the masseter muscle in the cheeks to slim the lower face. Botox take three to seven days to kick in and sometimes up to two weeks for full results. It is important to be patient. I recommend following up with your doctor at the two week point. Good luck!
Botox takes 14 days to work
Botox takes 14 days for the full effects to kick in. Be patient and all will settle as it should. If after two weeks you still have concerns with asymmetry see your provider.
Jaw Asymmetry After Botox
Botox onset may begin around day 3 with full onset after 10 days. You should wait at least 10 days to see how it works before worrying. You may need to add more units. Discuss this with your doctor when you go in for your follow-up.
Thanks for your question. Botox to the masseters is a common treatment to treat TMJ from jaw clenching. It can also be used to create a slimmer jaw line in people with large masseter muscles. Botox usually starts to have an effect in 3-5 days and has its full activity at 2 weeks. If you only had the treatment two days ago, you can't expect to have the full effect yet. You can expect some asymmetry between the sides as the botox begins to act. Give it a little time.
Botox results after masseter injection
It can take up to 14 days to see the full results of the Botox injection. I suspect at 2 days after your injection, it is still too soon for you to see the complete result. I would judge your results once the Botox has completely kicked in.
Botox takes up to 10 days for full effect. I would wait the full time to decide if there is an issue. At that time, if there is asymmetry, go back to your injector. It shouldn't completely eradicate the movement of the muscle because it is necessary for chewing, it should just weaken the muscle.
