What Is Calf Botox®?
Botox® is an injection that temporarily blocks nerve impulses to the targeted muscles. When it comes to the muscles of the lower legs, many women feel self-conscious about having bulky-looking calves or uneven calf sizes. As an alternative to surgery, Botox® can be used to relax certain muscles, which makes them appear slimmer and more streamlined. This procedure does not affect the calf function; patients can continue with their regular activities.
Benefits of Calf Botox®
Relaxing the calf muscles with Botox® can result in a slimmer, more feminine appearance. For women who have larger muscles in one calf than in the other, Botox® can make their legs look and feel more symmetrical. Since the effects of Botox® are temporary, Calf Botox® offers a chance to “test drive” the muscle shrinkage; if they like the results, they can repeat the Botox® injection or elect a more permanent procedure.
Other benefits include:
- Noninvasive procedure
- No scarring
- No downtime for recovery
- Less prominent calf muscles
How Is Calf Botox® Performed?
Although Botox® injections produce very little discomfort, you may opt to use a numbing topical cream if you like. Then, using a series of syringes, Dr. Huynh will inject Botox® evenly and precisely across the gastrocnemius, which is the main calf muscle that creates definition and bulkiness. The entire procedure can be completed in less than one hour.
Preparing for Calf Botox®
Since Calf Botox® is a non-invasive procedure, no special preparations are necessary.
Calf Botox® Recovery
After the injections, downtime is minimal. You may return to your normal activities immediately, even going out for a run. The results of your calf reduction will become visible gradually, leading to full results in about three months.

Is Calf Botox® Right for Me?
If you have overly defined calf muscles, bulky calves, uneven calves, or would simply like to have more svelte and sexy legs, then Calf Botox® may be right for you. This technique works especially well for patients who are considering more permanent means of calf reduction but would like to “sample” the results first.
