Many people are naturally predisposed to having thicker calf muscles, either because of genetics or as a result of physical activity. A neuromodulator, such as Botox, can thin down the calf muscles. Botox injections are administered to the gastrocnemius muscle. The gastrocnemius is the most superficial muscle of the calf. It is responsible for definition and bulkiness. Using Botox on this muscle causes it to relax, giving the leg a leaner appearance. Using this procedure, only a small portion of the muscle fibers are affected, so normal calf function is not impaired, nor are you negatively affected when walking or running.
It is possible to return to your normal routine right away – you may even go for a run if you wish. Results will become apparent gradually over time, and a total result will be visible after three months. Further injections may be required to maintain long-lasting results.
A botox calf reduction non-surgical procedure is available to slim the lower limbs.
Botox injections cause the muscles in the calves to relax, resulting in a leaner appearance.
A physical examination is necessary to determine if you are a good candidate for Botox calf treatments.
The effect of Botox can generally last 4 to 6 months. The result is not permanent but the effect will last longer with repeated treatments.
