Calf Botulinum Toxin works by paralyzing the nerves supplying the calf muscles and causing the gastrocnemius muscles to shrink, or atrophy.
It effect a tiny reduction in calf diameter by simple procedure.
After the initial treatments, most patients note a slight improvement that lasts 6-9 months.
Reduction in calf circumference may be hard to measure but the weakened muscle appears less prominent.
The advantage of Botulinum Toxin calf reduction is that it is minimally invasive.
