Treating The Masseter Muscle With Botulinum Toxin

In this video Medical Director of Cosmetic Courses, Mr Adrian Richards looks at treating the Masseter Muscle with Botulinum Toxin and its benefits.

The Masseter Muscle is the muscle at the back of the jaw which helps you chew food and can be seen when you clench your teeth. Sometimes this muscle can be quite large and be quite prominent on facial features giving a wider facial appearance. By using Botulinum Toxin injections, the appearance of the muscle can decrease and “slim” down the jaw area.

Some individuals can also suffer with teeth grinding and jaw clenching, by using Botulinum Toxins in this area it will relax the muscles and decrease overactive grinding and clenching in the area.
