How Does The Procedure Work?

Botulinum toxin (Botox) acts as a neuromuscular inhibitor and is carefully administered to specific areas of the calves. To be more exact, the calf comprises two primary muscles, known as the gastrocnemius muscle, each consisting of a medial and lateral head. Our skilled physicians meticulously identify and mark the precise locations for injection.

Then, the Botox is injected with precision and efficiency. In the subsequent weeks, Botox begins to relax the superficial layer of the muscle while preserving the underlying muscle activity essential for everyday movement.

The relaxed portion of the muscle is no longer actively engaged. Therefore, the body gradually reduces the size of the relaxed muscle portion over months through natural atrophy, resulting in a more refined calf contour.
