If you’re in your 20s and you think it's too early for Botox, think again. Contrary to popular belief, the procedure isn’t just for “older people.” Rocio Zobel, one of the youngest (and most stylish) members of the Zobel de Ayala clan, just got a Masseter Botox—and she's only 21 years old!

Now, many of you are probably thinking, “That’s way too young to get Botox!” But experts such as Dra. Vicki Belo begs to disagree. In fact, the celebrity doctor claims that getting Botox as early as your 20s can help prevent many of the signs of aging—such as fine lines and wrinkles that we get from stress, genetics, and environmental factors—from happening earlier than they should.
That said, Botox isn’t just for getting rid of wrinkles and fine lines either. It can even help you slim your face, and that’s exactly why Rocio decided to get one in the first place. The procedure she went through is known as Masseter Botox, also popularly known as "jawtox"–as they call it on Tiktok.
Dra. Vicki explains that individuals who suffer from teeth grinding (bruxism), like Rocio, often have enlarged masseter muscles. Another factor contributing to their bulkiness is excessive chewing gum consumption. These enlarged muscles can give the jaw a wider, more square-shaped appearance. By injecting Botox into the masseter muscles, relaxation is induced, resulting in a narrower and diamond-shaped jawline.
How much does it cost to get botox?
Botox treatments at Belo start at P525 per unit. The specific number of units required will be determined during consultation. What's more, the procedure typically takes only 30 minutes, with minimal to no downtime, making it convenient enough to fit into your lunch break.
