The masseter muscle, located at the “angle of the jaw” or, the “angle of mandible” is the muscle we use for chewing. Through genetics or overactivity, sometimes, the masseter muscle can become enlarged, causing masseter muscle hypertrophy. The muscles increase in size, resulting in a wide and heavy jawline.
Dr. Umed’s anti-wrinkle injections soften this look, achieving a smoother, slightly oval lower jaw. The treatment lasts for 3 to 9 months. For optimum results, it is recommended to repeat the injection every 6 months.
