Is chin reduction possible with Botox?
Yeah. The 'masseter muscle' on the outside of the jawbone on both sides is very strong and in some individuals a particularly large muscle. The reduction of the volume of this muscle reduces the width of the jaw when viewed from the front and provides chin reduction.
What is Masseter Botox? (Not Massater Botox)
Masseter botox is the procedure that reduces the volume of the masseter muscle by botox injection into the masseter muscle. Masseter is commonly applied in patients with a wider / square lower face due to the bulkiness of the muscle to approach a more letter-shaped face.
How does Masseter benefit from being botox?
Botox freezes the movement of the muscle (temporarily). So it prevents it from contracting. Just as someone who goes to the gym and works their muscles a lot, their muscles grow by gaining volume. When used too much, the masseter muscle can grow excessively and create a square-like angular jaw. for example bruxism (teeth grinding, clenching) This can be seen in patients with Botox when the contraction of this muscle stops,
How long will the effect be seen in those with masseter botox?
It takes about 7-14 days for the effect of botox to begin and reach its maximum duration. With the onset of the botox effect, the person cannot tighten the masseter muscle compared to before the treatment. However, the fact that the muscle does not contract does not immediately shrink and the shrinkage in the chin does not mean that the V-face appearance is formed immediately.
Just as a bodybuilder stops lifting weights, it takes time for their muscles to 'wane'. After masseter botox, the chin will shrink in months as a result of the shrinkage of this muscle. A better appearance in the 2nd month compared to the 1st month after gradual botox; Compared to the 2nd month, a better appearance will be obtained in the 3rd month and the shrinkage will continue unless the muscle is used.
How long does the effect last for those with masseter botox?
It varies from person to person. The effect is expected to last between 4 and 6 months. Roughly speaking, it will have to be done 3 times a year in the beginning. However, after repeated botox applications, as the muscle mass and activity decrease, the duration of action decreases and it is possible that the masseter muscle botox application twice a year is sufficient. Again, results and needs may differ from person to person.
