Who opt for Botox Calf reduction treatment?

Women desire to have beautiful, slim and shaped calves which go with their smart and trim physical appearance & skirts. Bulky and muscular calves may not appeal to certain women. Therefore, many women wish to improve the appearance of their calves. There are different reasons for muscular calves. Some have genetically inherited muscular calves such as most of the Asians while others have developed them as a result of exercising (jumping related activities, basketball, weight training etc).

Botox Calf reduction offers a subtle form of calf reduction. It is a completely non-surgical cosmetic procedure in which botox is injected at multiple places at the lower limb area which results in the inactivity of calf muscles that gradually shrinks in size, giving a smart and reduced appearance.

A general review muscular calf reduction with Botox

Just as Botox is injected at certain specific areas on face to improve the facial profile of patients with aging skin, similarly, botox is evenly injected across the gastrocnemius muscle in the lower limbs. This is the major calf muscle which is responsible for the muscular appearance and bulkiness in the calf area. The injected Botox cause the specific calf muscles to become inactive and gradually they shrink in size, giving your calves smoother, slimmer and attractive contours.

Though very little discomfort is involved in the entire procedure but if the patients have some problem or issue with bearing the pain, numbing topical cream can be used during the treatment.

Patients should note that this calf reduction treatment does not cause any kind of restriction or inactivity in the functioning of calves. You can continue your day to day activities, normally.
