When overused, the masseter muscle can cause a square-looking jaw, but by injecting muscle relaxing injections, nerve signals are blocked and no longer allow the muscle to contract as tightly. Therefore, reducing its size and resulting in a softer angle at the jaw, a less square jaw and a more youthful oval face.
An effective treatment for reducing a prominent or asymmetric jaw line, the procedure has no downtime and patients generally notice softening of the masseter muscle after 1 week and softening of the jaw line at around 6-8 weeks.
At River Aesthetics we always aim for a soft, natural look which allows us to achieve a significant line improvement whilst still maintaining normal facial expression and helping restore a youthful appearance. As well as contouring the jawline, muscle relaxing injections can also be used to reduce a gummy smile, treat excessive sweating, alleviate teeth grinding and eradicate fine lines & wrinkles.

Muscle relaxing injections, also known as Botulinum Toxin Type A, is a naturally purified protein that blocks nerve signals at the injection point. The injected muscle will no longer be able to contract as tightly, causing them to temporarily relax and soften.
