Botox is a very versatile injectable, most commonly used for cosmetic treatments such as reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles in the skin. It is also very effective at treating many different medical conditions, including hyperhidrosis (excessive sweating) and overuse of specific muscles such as the TMJ. When injected into the masseter muscles, Botox offers beautiful face-slimming results and provides definition to the jaw, but it is also incredibly effective at relieving symptoms associated with the overuse of the muscle by temporarily forcing the muscle to rest.
It can be expected that the Botox you receive in the masseter muscles will last for around 4 to 6 months. Many patients will opt for touch-ups at the 6-month mark. Within only one or two weeks following the treatment, you should be able to start to notice a visible reduction in the size of the masseter muscles and an improvement to the appearance of your jawline, as well as symptom relief from grinding and TMJ. To ensure that the treatment heals properly and the results last as long as possible, it is important to closely follow the directives provided by the specialist during the appointment.
Botox treatments for the masseter muscles are actually multi-faceted, providing both cosmetic benefits as well as temporary treatment and symptom relief for temporomandibular joint disorder (TMJ) and grinding teeth. The cosmetic benefits of masseter Botox include a reduction in the size of the masseter muscles, creating the appearance of facial symmetry, and providing a squared jaw. For those who have the habit of grinding their teeth or clenching their jaw, Botox in the masseter muscles can be incredibly beneficial at treating the habit over time and reducing the symptoms in the meantime, which include tooth pain or sensitivity, damage to the teeth, minor headaches, pain in the face, jaw, or neck, and ear pain. Those who are suffering from TMJ can experience relief from their jaw, face, and ear pain, frequent headaches, jaw locking, damage done to the temporomandibular joint, and a lack of range of motion within the joint.
The average cost for masseter Botox treatments can vary greatly depending on how many units of Botox you require to attain your desired results and the cost per unit of Botox where you go for the treatment. If you are receiving Botox on both sides of the face, it will likely cost somewhere between $400 and $600. If you are receiving the Botox to slim the appearance of the masseter muscles, you will likely require around 20 to 30 units of Botox, with the average cost of Botox being around $15 per unit. Botox treatment for TMJ or tooth grinding can end up costing a bit more depending on the severity of the condition as more units of Botox will be required for treatment. At $25 a unit, Botox treatments can start to add up, which is why many MedSpas will offer promotions. Here at Glo Med Spa, we are happy to offer our Botox treatments at $12 per unit.
Visible results from masseter Botox will often take a bit longer than the average Botox treatment due to the size of the masseter muscles. Jaw slimming from Botox can start to be visible anywhere from 2 to 4 weeks following the treatment. The neurotoxin usually takes about one week to start working, so results will become more and more visible once the neurotoxin has had some time to do its job. The masseter muscle will continue to slim for several weeks until it reaches the final result, which will sustain for several months until another treatment is required to maintain those desired results. The amount of difference you wish to see from the original appearance of the face can be determined by the amount of Botox that is injected into the muscles, and it may take a little bit more time to fully reach those final results than for those who opt for more subtle changes.
Masseter Botox is a safe and efficient treatment to provide Botox injections into the masseter muscle to lower its size and cure other jaw-related issues.
