Masseter Reduction / V‑Line Slimming

The masseter is one of four muscles that assists with chewing. It is a rectangular shaped muscle located on the side of the face and attaches to both the cheekbone and jaw. Injecting a neuromodulator into this muscle causes temporary weakness, causing it to become smaller. Injecting a neuromodulator to the masseters can help you achieve a slimming effect and alleviate jaw pain from teeth grinding or clenching. Our patients tell us their sleep quality has improved significantly after their injections!

In addition to helping alleviate jaw tension, masseter reduction has become an increasingly popular treatment to achieve a slimmer, “V-line” face. Especially popular in Asian plastic surgery, “V-line” lower face shape is associated with a more feminine and softer aesthetic look. Enlarged masseters can contribute to a more square or rounded jawline which can appear more masculine. Masseter reduction can result in a balancing face shape, contouring of the lower jaw, and reduce any jaw clenching and pain- all with no surgery. Come and get a consultation to see if you are a good candidate for this procedure!

How long will it take to see results?

Most patients will notice relief in their jaw tension about 2 weeks after the appointment. For a full slimming effect, patients will need to wait a full 8 weeks for the maximum effect. Keep in mind that everyone responds very differently to the procedure, with some responding faster or slower than others, and proper candidacy is needed to ensure good results.

How long do results last?

This depends on the units used, size of muscle, the purpose of the treatment, and the individuals’ metabolism. For teeth grinders - this treatment may last 3-4 months. For jaw slimming - this treatment may last up to 6 months. The results will vary per individual.

Who is a good candidate?

If you grind your teeth, wake up with jaw pain, and/or are noticing your masseters getting larger overtime from constant grinding, you may be the right candidate. We always recommend getting evaluated from our aesthetic providers to assess your anatomy and determine realistic expectations with the treatment.

I had such an AWESOME experience at Halo Beverly Hills.

PA Haley Trinh is professional and talented with a knowledge of her specialty that surpassed my expectations. I'm a real wimp when it comes to this stuff so PA Haley numbed my skin pretty well and took time to explain the procedures and reassured me throughout. She Picosured my neck and face and followed that with Potenza. The Potenza was still a bit uncomfortable but she helped me get through it. Afterwards, I got injected with some Dysport. I'm 3 weeks out from my procedures and the heavy lines all over my face and neck have really improved.

This place is gorgeous with sweet views of LA & was relaxing from the moment I walked through the front door. I'd give 6 stars if yelp allowed more than 5. Thank you !

I have been wanting to get Botox and I came across Nurse Angella.

She is really amazing! I was super nervous especially this being my first time getting any treatments done. She made the whole process very comfortable. I highly highly recommend scheduling an appointment here. I will definitely be coming back for my touch up~

This place is absolutely amazing!

I found Nurse Angella on instagram and switched from my previous clinic that was expensive and stuffy - but this office has the most kind, friendly staff and nurse angella is patient, explains everything and helps you find a treatment plan for your budget. My botox results are 10/10 and i felt like she actually did the proper prep work to figure out where to inject that my other plastic surgeon doctor didn't! Love this place and will continue coming here!
