The masseter muscles are the muscles at the sides of the jaw, just behind the cheeks, which control our chewing. As the strongest muscles in the human body – and some of the most frequently used – they can easily become a point of pain and dysfunction, leading to bruxism, also known as teeth grinding, jaw tension, headaches, and temporomandibular joint syndrome (TMJ). Patients experiencing these issues often find little to no relief from their pain via the usual medications such as paracetamol or ibuprofen, and bruxism can lead to tooth wear and other issues in the mouth. Thankfully, we can now treat and address the issue through wrinkle correction treatment.
With wrinkle correction treatment, we can block the signals that cause the muscles to contract, reducing the strength of muscle contractions. It helps to keep the masseter muscles relaxed for up to five months after the treatment, which in turn can help reduce the amount the muscles contract in the long term.
Wrinkle correction is injected into the jaw muscles by our skilled facial aesthetician.
You’ll feel a very small pinch which lasts no longer than a split second; our aesthetician is highly skilled in minimising pain and ensuring you are comfortable throughout the treatment.
No, you’ll be able to leave the clinic and return to your day as normal.
Results usually last for three to five months.Back to Facial Aesthetics
