Facial Reduction Aesthetics: Masseter Botox

What is Masseter Botox?
There are two basic muscles that help us to close our lower jaw, also called the mandible. One of them is the temporal muscle in the temple area, which is under our palms when we take our head between our hands, and the other is the masseter muscle, which is connected to the corner of our chin. Both muscles, especially the strong masseter muscle, have a strong effect on the jaw joint. Sometimes as an anatomical feature (our familial feature), sometimes as a result of excessive use of chewing gum, this muscle becomes stronger. So, which muscle you use more while the body is working, doesn't it develop? Sometimes, this muscle can become over-strengthened and increase in volume in relation to stress, accompanying night clenching and grinding of teeth. The strengthening of the masseter causes the cartilage in the jaw joint to be under pressure. This cartilage is similar to the meniscus in our knee and is eroded by exposure to pressure and causes jaw joint pain. If the strengthening of the masseter muscle begins at an early age, it can even increase the width of the jawbone (mandible) by pulling even the corner of the jaw to which it is attached. The transverse enlargement of the mandible means the enlargement of the lower part of our face.

To sum up, the masseter muscle is functionally related to the jaw joint, and visually, it is associated with our lower face segment appearing wider. So is it possible to stop this muscle? Is it possible to reverse these negative effects?

Botox, which was discovered in the eighties, was used much later for the treatment of spastic paralysis cases. Therefore, it is a molecule that we are familiar with in muscle strength control. Botox, which we will apply to the masseter muscle, causes softening in the muscles within a week. This promises you a peaceful and comfortable sleep. In the sixth week of the application, there is a visible thinning in the volume of this muscle. This thinning manifests itself directly as a reduction in the lower half of our face. The duration of activity is on the average of 3-5 months, as in classical botox information. Of course, when the effect wears off, the feeling of tension comes first, and it can take up to four to six weeks for the muscle to gain volume.
The masseter muscle and the mandible (jaw bone) that the muscle expands by pulling out can also be weakened surgically. However, it is also advantageous to test and test the expected results before surgery with a safe and reversible method such as botox.

Antalya masseter botox, chin botox, or face thinning botox can be performed in as little as five minutes and you can return to your daily life immediately. It is often appropriate to control the patients on the 10th day and the sixth week.
