LM Skincentre Hong Kong is offering Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) injections for calf slimming and leg contouring. This technique serves as a less invasive yet effective alternative to surgical methods like calf muscle removal, liposuction, or nerve ablation, delivering dramatic results for those desiring slimmer, sculpted lower legs.
What is Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) for Calf Slimming?
Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) injections target the gastrocnemius muscle, responsible for the calf’s mass and definition. By injecting Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) evenly across this muscle, we selectively weaken it, reducing its volume without restricting its activity or function. This process, typically taking up to an hour, may require at least two sessions for visible results, followed by maintenance treatments.
Clinical Assessment for Effective Treatment:
Our comprehensive clinical assessment includes a visual analysis, medical history review, lifestyle assessment, and goal setting. We help determine if Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) is a suitable treatment and guides our approach to achieve your desired results.
How should I prepare before treatment?
To ensure the best results, it is very important to prepare well for your treatment. Eat before treatment, avoid alcohol and anti-inflammatory drugs, and arrange your injection treatment outside of your menstrual period.
How much Botulinum Toxin (Botox/Xeomin) do I need?
Generally, the amount of Botulinum Toxin (Botox/Xeomin) needed for the calf muscles is significantly higher than for facial treatments, usually requiring at least 100 units per muscle. This dosage is very important for achieving the desired calf reduction and sculpting effect.
What should I be aware of with calf slimming injections?
After the treatment procedure, there will be only a little recovery time allowing you to continue most of your daily activities. We recommend avoiding intense exercise immediately after treatment and suggest keeping the treatment area dry for a short period. Following these instructions can ensure a smoother recovery and lasting effects.
What is the benefits of Calf Slimming with Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin)? Why Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) treatments is preferable than other invasive treatment?
There are several reasons for that:
- Minimal invasiveness with fewer risks compared to surgery.
- Little to no downtime and short treatment duration.
- Subtle, natural reshaping of the legs.
- Quick initial results, with maximum effects observed within 2 months.
What are the potential side effects with Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) for calf slimming?
Same as other injection treatment, bruising, swelling and pain are common side effects after Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) treatment. While Botulinum Toxin (Botox/ Xeomin) for calf slimming is generally safe, it’s important to note that patients with enlarged calves due to subcutaneous fat may not be ideal candidates.

Regular follow-ups are recommended to address any remaining bulky areas and maintain the contour.
