Botox for Masseter (TMJ)

Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) disorders can cause significant pain in your life, both physical and mental, interfering with eating, talking, and other activities. Chronic pain can affect many aspects of your life. This doesn’t have to be the case anymore, thanks to Botox.

When injected into the masseter muscle as well as your forehead and temple muscles, Botox relaxes these areas by paralyzing the muscles, improving the symptoms of TMJ disorders.

What Does Botox for Masseter (TMJ) Feel Like?

Even if you may be used to the pain in this area, Botox injections are incredibly tolerable and rank low in discomfort levels. A topical anesthetic may be used to ensure optimal comfort during treatment.

When Will I See Botox for Masseter (TMJ) Results?

It takes at least 6-8 weeks for the full effects of Botox to occur and can last for up to 6 months.

I had a great experience with Dr. Kim!!! He did his best to make me feel comfortable during the procedure and explained the whole process to me beforehand. The entire staff were also so nice! You can tell they all get along and have a great work culture. Sally R.
I love this office . First and foremost Dr. Kim has the most kind, heart warming staff working with him. Secondly, I have had several consultations with Dr. Kim regarding procedures that I am considering. During the consults he really takes time to understand my needs and give honest advice along with visuals of what I would like to achieve. His work is so precise to what I aim to achieve and is totally on point 💯 to satisfaction. Dr. Kim and his staff are vextremly friendly, patient and professional. I am definitely becoming a regular here. Must try the Diamond glow facial and other skin rejuvenating procedure! Nikki P.
I really enjoyed my visit to Dr. Kim’s office. From the moment that I walked in, the staff was extremely welcoming and friendly. Dr. Kim is very educated and easy to talk to. He really took the time to listen and to try to make sure you knew what would be best for you. Another bonus is he brings his cute little dog to the office with him. I would100% recommend him and his staff. Pam K.
Visiting Dr.Kim’s office has been a wonderful experience thus far. His staff makes me feel happy and assured at every visit. Of course, the man of the hour has always been calm, humble and tends to humor me at every comment and answers every question that has came up in our visits. I believe I have made the right choice to receive Dr. Kim’s medical expertise as being under his hands, he has been gentle during the operation as well as produced excellent results. (Biggest plus, I have never felt rushed under his care lol you’re the bomb Dr. Kim!!!! Jennifer C.
After interviewing several physicians I decided to go with Dr. Kim. Professionalism is extremely important to me but so is the character of the physician, the attitude, and personality. He made me feel comfortable, he was confident but not arrogant. I trusted his expertise and I was not disappointed. Thank you Dr. Kim! Judy G.
I HIGHLY recommend Dr. Kim for Asian eyelid surgery (upper eyelid blepharoplasty)!!! My results turned out better than I could have ever imagined. Dr. Kim really took the time to listen to me and what I wanted. Together, we carefully planned out where the eyelid crease would be, and it is exactly where we had planned! I also had a quick and somehow painless recovery, which I’m sure much of that can be owed to his excellent surgical technique. I feel so much more beautiful and confident after this surgery. My only regret is that I didn’t do it sooner in life. Thank you, Dr. Kim, for quite literally changing my life, and thank you to his wonderful staff who made this such a pleasant and efficient experience! JA
