Masseter Botoks

Masseter Botoks

Muscle is the wire tissue on the human skeletal system and in the structure of some organs, shaping the body, contracting (contraction) and relaxing (relaxation), allowing the bones to move, the organs to perform important functions and the organism to function regularly. There are more than 600 muscles in the human body, including 60 in the face.

There are four masticatory muscles on each side of the face that allow the chewing movement to be performed correctly.

Masseter Botoks

Among these muscles, the Masseter muscle is a four-cornered, strong chewing muscle located on the inside of the cheek on the outside of the lower jawbone (mandible) and upper jawbone (maxilla). Its function is to lift the lower jaw upwards and close the mouth.

The masseter muscle is very important for both health and facial appearance. If there is growth / thickening in the masseter muscle due to overuse and tension, problems such as teeth grinding (bruxism) and teeth clenching occur. It also causes the face to take on a wide and angular appearance. Aesthetic interventions performed in the facial area as a result of cosmetic concerns; It is applied to three separate parts of the face: upper face, mid-face and lower face. The intervention performed in the mid-face area is directly related to the masseter muscle.

The ideal chin form is different for men and women. While the square face shape that creates a perception of a strong character is admired by men, a thin and prominent jaw line that provides a naive, soft and vigorous appearance is more aesthetic for women.

Masseter Botox is injected into the masseter muscle to soften the sharp jaw appearance caused by the strengthening and thickening of the masseter muscle, to make the lower part of the face thin and beautiful, to provide a solution to teeth grinding and teeth clenching problems.

How Does Masseter (Chewing Muscle) Botox Work?

There is no preliminary preparation required for Masseter Botox. Botox application is not performed on pregnant and breastfeeding women. Patients with high blood pressure who use blood thinners, those with skin problems, allergies, those who have previously undergone surgical intervention in the facial area, those who constantly use certain medications should definitely inform the doctor before the application.

As a result of stimuli to the muscles, a chemical called acetylcholine is released from the nerve endings. Acetylcholine attaches to receptors on muscle cells and stimulates them. The receptors stimulated by acetylcholine allow the muscles to contract and move the bone or organ to which they are attached. Botox is a purified protein-containing toxin derived from Clostridium Botulinum bacteria in a laboratory environment that blocks nerve endings by preventing the release of acetylcholine by nerves, weakening muscles, inhibiting impulses and contraction.

In masseter botox application; Botox injected into the masseter muscles under the skin with the help of cannula or fine-tipped needles weakens the masseter muscle and allows it to relax. Since the injection area is numbed with anesthetic gels and creams, no pain is felt during and after the injection, only mild burning and pain may be felt, and these pains can be reduced by applying ice therapy (cold compress) to the injection areas. The masseter muscle, which thickens and grows due to overuse and tension, loosens and thins over time with the effect of Botox. The muscles that become thinner and smaller in size provide a thinner face, softening of the jaw line, a thin and beautiful facial line, as well as eliminating teeth grinding and teeth clenching problems.

Daily life can be resumed after Masseter Botox application. However, in the first few days, heavy activities that require extra effort and extremely hot environments such as saunas should be avoided. Attention should be paid to the lying position, do not lie face down and do not rub the botoxed areas.

In Botox applications; Although the risk of side effects is quite low, numbness, pain, inflammation, redness, bruising, swelling and bleeding, dry mouth, head and neck pain can rarely be seen in the injection area. In addition, complaints such as itching, weakness, dizziness and rash have been observed in patients with allergy problems.

Melisa Aktürk

In my first meeting with Mr. Elad, I trusted him immediately. He is both a warm-blooded, friendly doctor and explains everything in detail and honestly. I am in the 1st month of my surgery. I had a bruise-free, painless process. I also already love the shape of my nose :) If you want a natural nose that is compatible with your face, Mr. Elad is the right choice. His team and himself are very interested. They do not think that the surgery is over. I can recommend my doctor with peace of mind. I thank him and his team endlessly.
