Botox is worth trying after having seeing a friend who now looks a good three years younger.
- Botox treatment named “masseter muscle injection” is used to slim down the face and the jaw area.
- The masseter muscle is used for chewing and grinding and takes a beating due to the stresses of daily life.
- A small amount of Botox is injected into the masseter muscle along the jaw line to relax the muscle until it appears smaller.
Of course, Botox is not a permanent solution. Though it can take effect in as little as a week, the muscle vacation only lasts for up to five months.

Mike Dilkes ENT is based in Central, North, East and South London. Most of our consultations and treatments are carried out either at The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth or The London Independent Hospital. The Hospital of St John and St Elizabeth is one of London's biggest and most prestigious private hospitals.
It is in St Johns's Wood, a leafy area of the west end, just north of Harley Street and Regent's Park. The London Independent Hospital is in Stepney Green, hidden away just behind Mile End Road, just to the East of the City of London. Formally The London Jewish Hospital, it is a purpose built modern building with full facilities, beautifully appointed rooms, state of the art laser systems and, in case anything goes wrong (it really shouldn't), a fully covered Consultant 24 hour ward and Intensive Care presence - the only private hospital in London to have this.
