Botox For Masseter

What Is Botox for Masseter?

The masseter muscle is one of the muscles that help you chew. It connects your cheekbones to your lower jawbones. This muscle is also responsible for the slight bulge on both sides of your jaw, making it look squared and chiseled.

Botox is a neurotoxin that paralyzes the muscles temporarily. When injected into the masseter muscles, it will block the nerve signals for a limited period, which causes muscle relaxation. This shrinks the muscle over time, giving your face a slimmer appearance.

Ideal Candidates for Botox for Masseter

Good candidates for Botox for masseter muscles have a wide, overly strong, or asymmetrical jawline due to strong masseter muscles. If you want to reduce night grinding or address TMJ, you may be an ideal candidate for jaw Botox injections at Geria Dermatology.

If you are in good health, a non-smoker, and have no known allergies to botulinum toxin injections, you may undergo this procedure. However, if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, or have known allergies to Botox injections, this treatment may not be recommended for you.

I had such a great experience at Geria Dermatology. Everything was so quick and easy, nearly no wait time. Dr. Geria is very thorough and professional. He addressed all of my concerns and was very patient. Highly recommend seeing him, especially for cosmetic procedures. I feel and look different already! So happy.

The Botox for Masseter Procedure

Before your Botox injections, your face will be cleansed to reduce the chance of infections. The injections will be prepared. In some cases, a topical anesthetic will be applied to the injection sites. Then, the botulinum toxin will be injected into the masseter muscles on both sides of the face. The whole procedure might take only 15 minutes.


There is almost no downtime or recovery needed after your jawline Botox injections. You can go back to your usual routine after getting your treatment. Common side effects of this procedure are minor temporary bruising, swelling, and pain in the treated areas.

You must avoid rubbing the target areas, placing pressure on the injection sites, and engaging in vigorous exercises. These activities could spread the Botox to other parts of your face.

Cost of Botox for Masseter

The total cost of Botox for masseter muscles depends on the number of injections needed to address your specific concerns. The overall price may also be affected by any required maintenance treatments.
