BOTOX® Calf Reduction
For patients looking for a milder form of calf reduction, BOTOX® Cosmetic may be the perfect option. This totally noninvasive procedure administers multiple treatments of BOTOX to the calf, reducing muscle activity and causing it to shrink. The effects of BOTOX are temporary, giving patients the opportunity to “sample” the shrinkage it provides. If they like what they see, they can opt for a more permanent procedure.
BOTOX® Calf Reduction Overview
BOTOX® Cosmetic is a prescription medication that is injected directly into muscles. Its purpose is to restrict muscle activity. It is most commonly used in the forehead, where it restricts the use of muscles that cause so-called worry lines. With these muscles now inactive, patients experience much smoother skin on their forehead.
BOTOX® calf reduction works much the same way, just on a larger scale. By using BOTOX®, our doctors can selectively deactivate muscles in the calves. Once these muscles are inactive, they will gradually become smoother with less definition. Patients should understand that this procedure does not restrict calf function, and all regular activities can be maintained.
At the Calf Reduction Center, the first step of every calf reduction is a private consultation. During this time, your doctor will gain an understanding of your goals and exactly what you would like to handle. Once he has this understanding, your doctor will be able to properly recommend whether BOTOX calf reduction is right for you. We are careful to only deliver services that patients actually need, and your initial consultation will help to establish this. To schedule a consultation, please call us today.
BOTOX® Calf Reduction Procedure
While BOTOX generally produces very little discomfort, patients have the option of a numbing topical cream throughout the procedure. Patient comfort is very important to us and we will make sure that you have everything you need to make it a smooth and pain free procedure.
For patients who have already had BOTOX in their forehead, BOTOX calf reduction is very similar. Using a series of syringes, our doctors carefully inject BOTOX evenly across the gastrocnemius muscle, which is the main muscle in the calf responsible for bulkiness and definition. Using his precise approach to injecting BOTOX, this procedure can often be performed in under an hour.
Advantages of Calf Reduction
Because there are several methods of calf reduction, it is helpful for patients to understand the advantages of each. No two cases of calf reduction are the same. In some cases our experts doctors may even chooses to combine two methods of calf reduction. Everything will be established during your initial consultation. In the meantime, we’ve included some advantages of BOTOX calf reduction for your consideration:
- Leaves no scar
- No recovery time
- Reduces prominence of the calf muscle
- Noninvasive procedure
