typical Masseter Botox session last in London

Getting an impressive, well-defined jawline is one of the biggest cosmetic goals for many men and women. This is especially true in the age of Instagram and TikTok where celebrities and influencers have well-defined jawlines and a balanced facial structure.

Thankfully, thanks to the wonders of cosmetic Masseter Botox London, it’s possible to achieve the perfect, slimming and chiselled jawline you have always dreamed of without surgery. The procedure involves injecting the masseter muscle with a fine needle to relax the muscle and reduce jaw pain, wrinkles and bruxism. This is an elective treatment so not covered by insurance, but Injectual offers convenient payment options like Clearpay and Klarna.

Masseter Botox is a relatively quick and easy procedure that typically lasts no more than 30 minutes. The practitioner will clean the area and apply a numbing cream to ensure you don’t feel any pain during the injection. Then they’ll identify the areas to be injected by pinpointing the trigger points with a pen or using a mirror to look inside your mouth. After the area is sterilised with chlorhexidine antiseptic spray, a small amount of fast acting local anaesthetic will be injected into the muscles.

The injections work by bind to the motor nerve endings in the muscle fibres and block the signals from being sent out. This causes the muscle to relax, reducing the pain and preventing dynamic wrinkles from forming. The results of masseter botox usually take a few days to a week to show. The effects are also temporary so regular treatments will be needed to maintain the benefits.

Another benefit of masseter botox is that it can help alleviate the symptoms of bruxism (grinding of the teeth). The clenching of the jaw causes the muscle to become overly developed which in turn leads to headaches, jaw tenderness, and even worn down or cracked teeth. Botox can help to reduce the grinding and prevent the need for mouth guards at night.

As well as treating a painful jaw, masseter botox can also be used to treat the chin crease or mental crease (also known as the ‘bunny lines’) that appear when you smile, laugh or express emotions. The injections relax the muscle to reduce the appearance of these fine lines. Typically, the results will last three to four months before they need to be repeated. It is important to find a qualified practitioner to perform the treatment as masseter Botox is a very sensitive area of the face and should be performed by an experienced practitioner. It is also important to avoid rubbing or massaging the injected area for 24 hours as this can spread the Botox and lessen the duration of its impact. This is why it’s best to visit a specialist clinic such as Injectual.
