What is Calf Slimming?
Some of us are naturally prone to thicker calf muscles, sometimes due to genetics and other times as a result of physical exercise. Neuromodulators can slim down calf muscles. Botox is injected into the gastrocnemius muscle. The gastrocnemius muscle is the most superficial calf muscle that is responsible for bulkiness and definition of the calf. The Neuromodulator causes this muscle to relax, creating a leaner appearance in the leg. This procedure only affects a small proportion of the outer muscle fibers, meaning it does not restrict normal calf function, nor does it negatively affect you ability to walk or run.
What Causes Large Bulky Calves?
Some of the common reasons behind your bulky and swollen calves are:
- Muscle Hypertrophy (Enlarged Muscles)
- Water Retention
Calf Reduction by Injections
The primary goal of calf reduction is to create a harmonious and smooth contour of the legs. Otherwise, the lower legs can appear shorter and unappealing.
For some, bulky calves is an aesthetic concern, while for others, it is a medical one that impedes blood flow. Moreover, large calf muscles may compress arteries in the lower leg.
Calf reduction is a non-surgical procedure to slim the lower limbs. Unlike surgical muscle resection of the calf muscle, nerve ablation or liposuction, Xeomin can create visible and sustainable results.
Who Can Have Calf Reduction?
Injections for calf reduction are ideal for overall healthy men and women who wish for more slender and symmetrical calves. It is a good option for anyone who wants a non-surgical solution for their disproportionate calf muscles.
Calf Reduction is ideal for you if you:
- Are not happy with your calves size
- Maintain a healthy body weight
- Do not have excess amounts of loose skin, especially if you have undergone a dramatic weight loss
- Hold realistic expectations about the results
- Do not have any serious health issues
- Are not suffering from water retention issues
How Does Calf Reduction Work?
A detailed consultation takes place before the treatment. It involves examining your calf muscles, expectations, medical history, and possible outcomes of the procedure.
Very fine needles are used to inject Xeomin into the muscles. The Gastrocnemius muscle is responsible for bulky and thick calves. Xeomin, therefore, helps to reduce the size of these muscles and make them smoother.
It is important to note that your calf muscles will continue to function normally. Therefore, you can continue your regular activities after the treatment.
