Masseter BOTOX® vs. Jawline Filler: How Do They Compare?


Explore Different Approaches for Enhancing the Lower Face in the New Jersey Area

A jawline that is well-defined is typically considered youthful and attractive, but aging, genetics, an overbite, and other factors can cause the jawbone structure to appear weak or recessed. On the other hand, overuse of the masseter muscles in the jaw can cause these muscles to become enlarged, resulting in a heavier or squarer appearance.If you are searching for ways to achieve a more sculpted jaw, jawline fillers and masseter BOTOX® in the New Jersey area are two of the most popular strategies for improving the definition or shape of the jaw area.


Curious about the similarities and differences between these two trending treatments? We can help you decide which approach is best suited for you.

Masseter Muscle BOTOX® Facts: How Does Masseter BOTOX® Compare to Jawline Fillers?

Masseter BOTOX® is a non-surgical botulinum toxin muscle relaxer treatment that can reduce pronounced bands on the neck (called platysmal bands) and help to prevent the muscles from pulling down the skin in unwanted ways. Masseter BOTOX® can also reduce the appearance of jaw muscles. The injectable has a jaw slimming effect that can give the lower face a more defined or contoured appearance, as well as a slimmer, more heart-shaped or oval look. BOTOX® for TMJ, BOTOX® for jaw clenching, BOTOX® for teeth grinding, and BOTOX® for jowls are other common lower face treatments possible with this injectable.

Dermal fillers work differently. These injectable gels add volume and allow for precise contouring. Many fillers have a hyaluronic acid base, but some types also stimulate collagen growth in the skin.

Masseter BOTOX® and fillers can often be combined. BOTOX® is usually better for subtle enhancements of the jawline, while fillers can provide more enhanced volume.
