Botox for the masseter
Thank you for your question Catwhiskers. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expression. It can also be used to slim the lower face by placing it in the masseter muscle which is used for biting. The masseter is a larger muscle and requires higher dosing than other muscles on the face. It may take a few treatments to slim down the muscle. So patience is important. Please follow up with your doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
Botox and Masseter
Botox is a great injection for the masseter muscle. If you find that there is not enough change then definitely return to the office and have it evaluated and more injected. Best, Dr. Green
Masseter Botox injection results
Great question. I usually tell my patients that it takes up to 2 weeks for the muscle to relax but then 4-6 weeks for the muscle to decrease in bulk (which provides the slimming effect). If it is your first time getting the injection, you may not see the slimming until you have had a few treatments. I would wait for a few more weeks to see your results. Too early at this point.
