Botulinum toxin injections have been widely used in cosmetic treatments for the past few decades. Among various cosmetic treatments, botulinum toxin injections to slim the masseter muscle have gained popularity due to their quick and easy application and their positive impact on the overall face shape and attractiveness.
The masseter muscle is one of the chewing muscles located in the lower face, and its overactivity can lead to a square or round appearance of the lower face, which may be aesthetically unpleasing to some individuals.
Botulinum toxin injections are a non-surgical and minimally invasive method to reduce the masseter muscle’s size, resulting in a slimmer and more contoured lower face.
The botulinum toxin works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals that cause the masseter muscle to contract, reducing its activity and size.
The injections are typically administered into the masseter muscle by a trained medical professional, and the treatment usually takes about 10-15 minutes. The full effects of the injections can be seen after 6 weeks and can last up to six months, after which the treatment can be repeated.
Slimming the masseter muscle with botulinum toxin injections can have a significant impact on the overall face shape and attractiveness. A slimmer and more contoured lower face can make the jawline appear more defined, resulting in a more balanced and aesthetically pleasing facial shape.
