MASSETER BOTOX, HALE CHESHIRE

If you suffer from tension in your jaw or feel you have a bulky appearance to your jawline, masseter botox could be the treatment for you. 
To see if you're suitable for this treatment book a free consultation with Dr Emma in her Cheshire based clinic via the link below

The masseter muscles are located on the side of the jaw and are one of the four muscles used to assist in chewing. In some people, we can overwork these muscles by continually clenching or grinding our teeth.

As a result the muscle can grow strong and bulky, creating a more masculine appearance to the face. 

By relaxing this muscle with Botox we can reduce some of the tension associated with the overuse of the muscle and consequently decrease the muscle size.    

The aesthetic effect of this is a slimmer more contoured jawline which lasts around 6 months.   

YOUR CONSULTATION

Before any botox treatment with Dr Emma a full consultation will take place in her Cheshire based clinic. During this session we can discuss the treatment options and any questions you may have, alongside your aesthetic goals so each treatment can be tailored specifically to you. There is no pressure to go ahead with botox treatment after the consultation, the main objective is to give you all the information you need to make an informed decision.
