BOTOX® On Masseter Muscles: What Is Jawline or Masseter BOTOX®?

Just like any other muscle, overuse of the jaw muscle can cause it to become bulky and widen.

BOTOX® is a minimally invasive injectable treatment that contains a purified form of botulinum toxin. For masseter BOTOX®, the medication is injected into the masseter or jaw muscle where it relaxes or limits the activity of the muscle responsible for excessive jaw clenching. By doing so, masseter BOTOX® provides aesthetic benefits such as slimming the jaw and improving the shape of the lower face.

Patients who feel like heavy or bulky jaw muscles give their face an unwanted masculine or squarer look can benefit from BOTOX® for jaw clenching to shrink and flatten the muscle. By making the jaw area narrower and sculpting a more tapered jawline, BOTOX® jaw reduction or jawline BOTOX® for masseter reduction can give your face a more feminine shape as well, if that’s your goal.

Masseter BOTOX® and TMJ: How Does BOTOX® for TMJ Work?

How do BOTOX® injections for TMJ work? The temporomandibular joints (TMJs) connect the lower jawbone to the skull. TMJ dysfunction or disorders can cause pain and tenderness in the jaw area. BOTOX® for jaw clenching and jaw BOTOX® for teeth grinding treatments involve injecting BOTOX® in the jaw for TMJ to help reduce the subconscious contractions of the jaw muscle and provide relief for the discomfort.

Will Masseter BOTOX® Give You Jowls or Sagging?

“Jowls” is a term used for the sagging, loose skin below the chin and jawline that many individuals develop due to aging. Some patients have expressed concerns about the potential long-term side effects of masseter BOTOX®, such as whether it can cause jowling on the lower face. It’s unlikely that BOTOX® on the masseter would cause jowls, as your skin is able to contract and conform to the changes caused by the injectable.

Masseter BOTOX®: What Else Can BOTOX® Do?

Masseter muscle BOTOX® is one of many benefits of this versatile injectable treatment. The following are some of the most popular cosmetic procedures, aside from masseter BOTOX®:

  • A BOTOX® brow lift provides younger looking and brighter eyes by lifting sagging brows.
  • BOTOX® around the eyes reduces glabellar lines or frown lines and crow’s feet.
  • BOTOX® under the eyes softens small wrinkles and protruding muscles.
  • DAO BOTOX® or BOTOX® for marionette lines helps to lift downturned mouth corners.
  • Trapezius BOTOX® provides a more elongated neck and slimmer shoulders.

Though they are not available from our practice, underarm BOTOX® is offered by some injectors to reduce excessive sweating associated with hyperhidrosis and BOTOX® for migraines provides relief for those suffering from chronic migraine headaches.

Which Other Cosmetic Treatments Complement Masseter BOTOX®?

Masseter BOTOX® is a great way to improve the shape and definition of the jawline, but there are also other aesthetic treatments that can enhance the lower face. Dermal fillers are a popular option for enhancing the jawline, but they work differently from masseter BOTOX®. Juvederm® and Restylane® are gel-like fillers that contain hyaluronic acid, while Sculptra® stimulates natural collagen production in the skin. All of these fillers are commonly used for chin and jawline augmentation and can create volume to reduce the appearance of bone loss, balance an asymmetrical jaw, strengthen the jaw, or give it a sharper appearance.

How Botox® Cosmetic Works – The Science Behind The Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a one-of-a-kind formulation and only BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

What Causes Facial Lines?

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. See real results with BOTOX® Cosmetic: the #1 selling product of its kind in the world.

When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.


When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.


When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.

What Should I Expect?

Some patients receiving BOTOX Injections Portland report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
