Masseter Botox. When Is It Appropriate and What Should You Consider?
As you may know, Botox is a muscle relaxing injection therapy using a neurotoxin (botulinum toxin) to paralyze muscles and make wrinkles and fine lines look smoother and less noticeable. Millions of people employ this proven treatment as an anti-aging tool with excellent results. But, while most people think of Botox as a treatment for facial aging, there are many other uses for the injection, including for your masseter muscles – the ones that regulate your jaw’s chewing motion.
Body sculpting, including Coolsculpting and Emsculpt, has, for good reason, dramatically increased in popularity over the past decade. For patients needing fat sculpting, or in the case of Emsculpt, muscle contouring, non-invasive treatments have become far more effective and desirable over the years. Compared to the prior option of surgical fat removal in the form of liposuction, the results for certain parts of the body and recovery time are very favorable. Further, patients can target their last small areas of fat accumulation that previously could not be treated using liposuction. Improvements in technology have made these in-office procedures more accurate, more effective, and less costly.
Of course, as with any cosmetic procedure, there is the question of cost, and in this blog, we will discuss the treatment options that can affect that.
