We use jawline Botox injections to relax the masseter muscles to slim the jaw. This treatment also helps reduce teeth grinding.

Non Surgical Jaw Reduction

At City Skin Clinic we perform masseter Botox® injections to reduce jaw size and teeth grinding (Bruxism). Botox jaw slimming injections treatment is carried out by our highly experienced aesthetic doctors in our clinic in London.

Masseter Botox for Jaw Slimming

The masseters are muscle around the jawline and if overactive, can create a wide jaw. As a result this gives the appearance of a square shaped lower face. Our non surgical jaw reduction procedure uses masseter Botox injections to provide a quick, painless alternative to splints and surgery. The overall result is a slimmer lower face. For this reason, Botox jaw slimming is often referred to as the “Botox V shape treatment”.

Botox for Bruxism

In addition to given a square appearing jawline, overactivity of the masseters can cause teeth grinding. Botox masseter injections relaxes these muscles. As such, we often use this procedure to help patients suffering from teeth grinding. the corner part of the muscle, hence improve teeth grinding.

Frequently asked questions

Botox injections weaken the masseter muscles over the time. This leads to a reduction in the overall size of these muscles. We focus the treatment in specific points in the muscles to produce maximal effect. The Botox injections will inhibit the movement of the masster muscles which cause a square jaw. This allows the jawline to appear slimmer and more v shaped.

You will have a consultation with one of our aesthetic doctors. During this time, they will record your medical history, discuss with you your problem areas and outline the treatment options that would be suitable for you. Afterwards, your doctor will consider your whole face and develop a personalised treatment plan which will include any suitable treatments for you and the cost of the treatments. If your personalised treatment plan includes anti-wrinkle injections and you are happy to proceed with the treatment, we will take your consent for the procedure. Additionally, you will also have a photograph taken of the area you want treating. You can either have the treatment on the same day as the consultation or book another appointment.

If you decide to have the treatment and our doctor deems that it is appropriate based on a full consultation, then the doctor will administer Botox injections with a very fine needle into 5 points on each side that will allow the masseter muscles to shrink. These injections are not painful and there is no down time after the treatment.

After your treatment you will be given a leaflet with a full explanation of what has been done, what to do for the first few days and any side-effects to look out for. Additionally we also offer a free follow-up consultation within a month of treatment and provide a free top-up if necessary. The effects usually last 3-4 months and then further treatment will be required if you wish to maintain the effect.

The most important criteria to decide if you are a good candidate for masseter Botox injections is the thickness and activity of your masseter muscles. One of the ways we do this is to get you to bite down hard whilst we feel the outline of the muscle. If the muscle appears to be hard and enlarged when you clench your teeth, then you may be a good candidate for this treatment.

Our anti-wrinkle injections are made from a drug made called Botulinum Toxin. This treatment has been FDA approved and used safely for both medical and cosmetic purposes for more than 20 years. Like any treatment, side effects can occur. In the case of Botulinum toxin anti-wrinkle injectables there is a risk of mild bruising or approximately 1-3% chance of experiencing a 'droopy eyelid' although both can be corrected or will fade in time. We reduce the risk of complications as all our treatments are delivered by a trained and experienced aesthetic doctor in a safe environment.

Most patients do not have this problem. However, you may experience a little bit of tiring after chewing. This feeling usually goes away after a week.

We only use Botox for all our Botulinum toxin injections.

In general it takes about 4 weeks before you see the full effect and results will typically last 3-4 months although this can be longer in some people.
