Botox injected into the masseter muscle reduces the bulk of the muscle, this makes the face look slimmer and more attractive.
How long does the procedure take?
The procedure takes only a few minutes. The doctor usually uses an ice pack or skin numbing cream to increase your comfort.
When can I see the results? How long do the results last?
Botox of the masseter usually takes 6 weeks to show. The results last 6 months to 8 months.
