The appearance of the calves consists of the structure of several groups of shin muscles, of which two play the largest role: the most visible gastrocnemius muscle and the soleus muscle below. It is these muscles that are most visible with an extended calf.
However, we are not always satisfied with our genetic background. Strongly muscled calves can also be the result of practicing specific sports. We can model the calf muscles thanks to properly selected exercises. It is certainly easier to carve them if they are small, when we want to reduce muscle circumferences, it is much more difficult.
How to slim your calves
When the exercises alone do not bring satisfactory results, we can use a treatment using botulinum toxin. Slim calves in a month? This effect can be obtained after a treatment with the use of botulinum toxin, which is widely used both in aesthetic medicine and in the treatment of various diseases (bruxism, migraine, muscle contractures)
The purpose of the treatment is to relax the calf muscles and give them a gentle, slim shape. Botulinum toxin is injected into appropriate muscle points, the amount is selected individually depending on the effect we want to achieve. A properly performed treatment will relax and relax the calf muscles, modeling their shape.
The first effects are visible after a few days, 2-3 weeks, while the final effect is visible after about 6 weeks. The duration of the effect of the treatment is individual, usually 6-8 months.
Recommendations after the procedure
After the procedure, you can immediately return to your daily activities. Immediately after the injection, first of all, you should not warm up (sun, solarium). Do not lie down for 4 hours after the procedure and do not drink alcohol for 2 days. Also, do not press or rub the injection sites. Recommended follow-up visit 3-4 weeks after the procedure.
