Is Botox effective for treating enlarged masseter muscles?

I suffer from masseter muscle hypertrophy, and I'd really like to get rid of this issue. My jawline look very masculine and, from what I understand, Botox relaxes muscles and can slim down wide faces. Will I see noticeable results from getting Botox injections into my jaw?

Yes, injecting botox into the masseter will relax the muscle and relieve symptoms of TMJ pain and teeth grinding.  It will also slim the face.

Yes! Botox can work very well for slimming the masseter muscle, and therefore the cheek. Be aware that this does take a fair amount of Botox, but the effects can last 6-9 months. I wish you success!
