Oversized muscular calves are indeed a common problem. Large calves can be caused by exercises, sports, or wearing high heels on a frequent basis. Since botulinum toxin has been proved that it is a successful treatment for masseteric hypertrophy, now botulinum toxin A therapy becomes a simple therapeutic alternative to surgery without interrupting daily life to achieve the appropriate, reliable reduction in the muscle thickness, and significantly improve of the appearance of the calf contour.


It is an effective and safe way to deal with the problem of calf muscle hypertrophy. After having the botulinum toxin injection, you can get the reduction in the prominence and size of calf muscle without scar and down time. Eventually, the outcome of calf reduction can  give you a balanced, more feminine contour of the calves.


Calf reduction by botox injections can create noticeable and lasting effects for patients who desire a slimmer lower leg. During the treatment, you will be asked to flex calf muscles to help determine areas of injection, then our practitioners will use a series of syringes to carefully inject evenly across the gastrocnemius muscle. Normally, this procedure can often be performed in under an hour and the outcome of slim and contour the calf muscles can be achieved.



Basically, botulinum toxin works by preventing the release of the neurotransmitter from the nerve endings and stopping specific muscle fibres from contracting. The results can be seen almost within 2 weeks, as the fast-acting Botox injections allow certain parts of the calf muscles to settle, and shrink slightly over time. Usually, the results of slimmer would be the most obvious within 2 months after the injection.

After the treatment, you can immediately return to normal activities. Results of more contoured calves can last up to 4 to 6 months. In order to maintain results, we suggest you to have repeat treatments as and when they are required.


Is this treatment safe?

Botulinum toxin therapy is one of the most popular cosmetic treatments available. Various of clinical researchers have proven that botulinum toxin A has been a useful ingredient in the treatment of benign masseteric hypertrophy with correction of the squared facial appearance and the reduction of enlarged calf muscles.

What can I expect from my treatment?

The injections show immediate results within 2 weeks. Then, you can see the final results of slimmer and reduction within 2 months. However, the botulinum toxin injection provides only temporary result, so we recommend to have repeated treatment once every 6 months.

What is the recovery time?

Because this is a gentle and minimally-invasive procedure , there is no recovery or downtime at all. You will find this to be a convenient treatment that has fast results.
