With stress at an all time high, anxiety and frustration can cause jaw clenching and teeth grinding, creating a host of painful symptoms. Not only can teeth grind down and headaches cause a constant, dull ache, but the masseter jaw muscle builds, increasing the appearance of a wide lower face.
Botox injections in the masseter muscle relaxes the area's strength, creating a relaxing sensation. When the jaw is not as tense, the muscle smooths, creating a slimmer aesthetic.

"How do I prepare for this procedure?"
- Avoid certain medications including over the counter painkillers and other drugs that are known blood thinners. Blood thinners can lead to severe complications during surgery and recovery and are advised against during all surgeries
- Patients who smoke should plan to quit for several months before and after. Smoke inhibits the bloods oxygen supply, which can also cause severe problems during surgery and cause the recovery period to be prolonged.
