Our masseter muscle is located either side of our jaw. If overused from teeth grinding or chewing, our masseter muscle can become enlarged and you might experience headaches. Anti-wrinkle injections such as botox relax the masseter muscle and reduce the size of the muscle making the face slimmer and treating any pain that’s caused from grinding or headaches.
A local anaesthetic is first applied to the injection sites on your face. Once you are ready, small quantities of the Anti-wrinkle treatment are injected into the Masseter Muscle either side of your jaw.
Anti wrinkle is suitable for most people; however, this treatment should be avoided by anyone with muscle problems or nerve damage, or anyone who is pregnant or breastfeeding.

The masseter is one of the muscles on either side of your face that helps you chew, and connects your cheekbone to your lower jawbone. Botox or other anti-wrinkle injections that are injected into the masseter, are a safe and effective aesthetic treatment that relaxes the over active masseter muscle for facial slimming and to prevent tooth grinding. Anti-wrinkle injections such as botox or other brands are administered by our highly qualified aesthetic doctors after a complimentary consultation to ensure you are seeking the treatments best suited for you.
The common side effects that occur with thread-lifting and anti-wrinkle injections are generally connected with the injections sites and usually resolve themselves within two days. They include:
These generally resolve within 2 – 7 days.
Masseter treatment should last around 3-4 months. You can expect to see full results in about 1 to 2 weeks. It’s worth noting that the effects of anti-wrinkle injections are temporary. They usually last 3 to 4 months. If you’d like to maintain the results, you’ll have to repeat the procedure. A plan for regular follow-up treatments will be put together for you.
Masseter Botox, also known as jawline Botox or masseter reduction, is a cosmetic procedure that involves injecting Botox into the masseter muscles to achieve a slimming effect on the face. The masseter muscles are the main muscles responsible for chewing, and when they are overdeveloped it can result in a wider or more square-shaped face.
Using a fine needle our doctor will carefully inject small amounts of anti-wrinkle treatment into the masseter muscles causing the muscles to relax and reduce in size over time. This can lead to a slimmer and more contoured appearance of the jawline and lower face.
When Anti-wrinkle injections, such as Botox, are injected into the masseter muscles they can provide relief for some people who suffer from migraines by reducing the frequency and severity of the migrane.
Migraines can be triggered or made worse by muscle tension and tightness. The masseter muscles, which are involved in jaw movement, can contribute to this tension. By injecting Botox into the masseter muscles, the muscle activity is temporarily reduced, leading to muscle relaxation. This can help in preventing migranes or stopping them from getting worse.
Botox for bruxism refers to the use of Botox injections as a treatment for teeth grinding or clenching, which is medically known as bruxism. Bruxism can lead to various symptoms, including jaw pain, headaches, tooth damage, and other dental issues.
