What should I expect after Botox masseter for one month? Face slimmer or Botox starts to wear off?

Botox for Masseter Muscle
It sounds as if you had the correct response and dosage with Botox. Sometimes, it takes more than one treatment to see the muscle shrink and can occur over a period of months. I would repeat the procedure in a few months. Best, Dr. Green

Shrinking of the jawline is secondary to atrophy of the masseter muscle. This process will occur over a 3 to 4 months time. I would wait until that time to judge the results.

Botox for the masseter
Thank you for your question kittyjung2002. Botox is a
purified protein that is used to treat wrinkles on the face. It can also be
injected into the masseter muscle in the lower face to slim the lower face and
provide more of a heart shape to the face, instead of a square face. The
masseter muscle is used for biting so patients may be sore when biting or
clenching the teeth after a treatment. Botox can also lead to atrophy of a
muscle (making it smaller). This can take multiple treatments so it is
important to be patient. Please contact your doctor for specific
recommendations. Good luck!
Botox for masseters and results
25-30 units per side is a good dose for the most masseter injection patients. Since you had good reduction in muscle activity after the injection, I suspect you may simply need to wait a little longer to see the results. Patients with bulky masseter muscles may require several treatments before they start to see significant reduction in the bulk of the muscle. I would wait a few more weeks and then return to your injector to discuss your results.

Treating masseter with Botox
Thank you for your question. Your Botox is probably not as strong as it was right after it was injected but on average should be effective for at least 3 months. It may take a couple of treatments to see the "slimming" effect of the masseter muscle. I would suggest to follow-up with your injector in another 2 months to re-inject and evaluate dosing and expectations from your treatment. While each person will experience different degrees of results, the results are usually subtle and will not completely change the shape of your face.
