Using the Jawzrsize may lead to some enlargement, or hypertrophy, of the masseter muscles, which are large chewing muscles at the side of the face.

Can masseter shrink?

In 2020, patients can have their masseters reduced using a simple relaxer injection procedure. The relaxer shrinks the masseter muscle over time by reducing the muscle’s movement, and therefore its exertion. This reduced exertion allows the muscle to shrink and obtain a less prominent size and shape.

Stress and anxiety are common causes of muscle tension. A person may clench their jaw or grind their teeth without noticing it, when stressed, and over time this can cause the muscles to tighten up. Stress or anxiety can also cause a person to clench their fists or lead to tension in the shoulder and neck muscles.
