Masseter Botulinum toxin Post-treatment advice include:

  • Stay upright for four hours.
  • Do not massage your face.

After four hours you can sleep on your side as it takes some time to settle. If you slept straightaway the Botulinum toxin can migrate to other muscle and have an unwanted effect on them.

Your questions answered


When we chew, we use muscles of mastication and one of those muscles is called the masseter muscles. These muscles are located running down the cheek to the jaw. Botulinum toxin is injected into the masseter muscles.

Once injected into the masseter muscles, Botulinum toxin works by temporarily relaxing the muscles, reducing nerve signals from reaching the muscles that play a pivotal role in clenching and grinding. This will help to alleviate and prevent involuntary movements of bruxism.

Botulinum toxin is also used in this area for masseter reductions. All that clenching and grinding of teeth can make our masseter muscles get bigger which can make our faces look wider. Many patients want to reduce their masseters, and this can also work to slim the face by relaxing these jaw muscles. There is even the added benefit of possibly having pronounced cheekbones from this treatment.

Apart from the obvious benefits of decreasing pain from teeth grinding and jaw clenching, it can:

  • Relieve jaw tension
  • Balance the face
  • Slim the appearance of a wide jaw
  • Eliminate headaches that originate from the jaw area
