CALF SLIMMING/CALF REDUCTION
Sculpt Your Calves with Calf Slimming Treatment
Calf reduction is typically done as a way to feminise the legs, creating a smooth contour from the knees to the ankle. When calves lack a defined curve, the lower legs can appear shorter, more masculine. Botox injections, while less invasive than surgical muscle reduction of the calf muscle, can still create noticeable and lasting effects for patients who desire a slimmer lower leg. Using a series of syringes, 50-100 units of Botox is carefully injected evenly across the gastrocnemius muscle on each side. The gastrocnemius muscle is the most superficial calf muscle that is responsible for bulkiness and definition of the calf. This procedure can often be performed in under an hour but typically requires at least 2 treatment sessions to see noticeable results. Maintenance treatments are also necessary to see continued effects. The goal of a calf reduction by Botox injection is to slim and contour the calf muscles.
HOW CALF MUSCLE REDUCTION/SLIMMING IS DONE?
Botox is injected into your calf muscles, thus weakening the muscles and shrinking them. There are two muscles in your calf: the soleus and the gastrocnemius. Botox is usually injected into the gastrocnemius muscle as it is more superficial.As the calf is a much bigger muscle a larger amount of Botox would be required. Depending on the assessment of each individual, in general, about 50 to 100 units of Botox is required for each calf.
HOW DO I KNOW IF I AM THE RIGHT CANDIDATE FOR CALF MUSCLE REDUCTION?
We will need to assess you through a physical examination. Calves should be examined in both the neutral and the tiptoed position to determine if the bulky calves are due to enlarged muscle. If it is, then Botox will be a suitable treatment.
The effect of Botox can generally last 4 to 6 months. You can expect to see a reduction in calf size after 2 to 4 weeks, but a follow-up session may be required to achieve the optimum calf reduction. The result is not permanent but the effect will last longer with repeated treatments.
