Masseter Muscle Contouring

Masseter Muscle Contouring

The masseter muscle is the large muscle that runs along the jawline and helps form the shape of our jawline. Over time, this muscle can become enlarged in areas and distort the face’s silhouette. This can alter a person’s appearance and add unwanted years to a person’s face. These changes can result from a number of factors including jaw clenching or just normal use.

Treatments for masseter muscle contouring include:

  • Botox/Dysport Injections

At Angel Gloss, we strategically inject Botox into the masseter muscle to disrupt the nerve signals. Over time, this will atrophy the muscle and decrease its size. The result is a slimmer, more clearly defined jawline and smoother, more sculpted facial profile. In addition to increasing the definition of the jawline, Botox injections in this area can also correct facial sagging.

Botox injections in the masseter muscle are quick and easy, and most individuals report little to no discomfort and are immediately able to resume their normal activities after the 20-minute procedure. Our specialists work with patients to perform a thorough review of patient’s medical history and needs, and the expected results of treatment.
