Treatment for Masseter

 
Hi and thank you for your question! We commonly use Botox (or Dysport/Xeomin) injection to reduce the size of masseter muscle for jaw slimming. In your case, it is possible to reduce the size on the side that is bulkier with careful injection of Botox/Dysport/Xeomin. Although the treatment results are temporary, as we use the muscle less, the bulk will go down and you might not need as much Botox for maintenance of the results in future. I hope it helps and good luck!
