So, your brand new boots have arrived and you can’t wait to try them on, but for some reason the zipper simply refuses to close! It’s important to indulge and treat yourself every once in a while, but there’s nothing more frustrating than ordering something online only for it not to fit after waiting so long for it to arrive. More and more women are discovering the slimming properties of anti-wrinkle injections, such as facial slimming and, more recently, calf slimming.
Some of us are simply more muscular around our calves, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing, but now a lot of women are looking toward expert treatment for the slimming of this area. Minimally-invasive body contouring is both intricate and gentle, allowing patients to sculpt a more sleek, feminine body. This offers a huge boost to confidence and self-esteem for patients struggling to live comfortably and happily with their natural body shape. Indulge a little further with highly advanced calf slimming, and hopefully you’ll never have to worry about fitting into a pair of boots again!
What does the procedure involve?
A highly precise dose of the botulinum toxin is carefully administered directly into the calf muscle in order to minimise muscle movement and initiate muscle atrophy. This is the process whereby the target muscle shrinks due to a lack of movement.
How long does calf slimming treatment take?
Your treatment will be over in a matter of minutes due to the simplicity of anti-wrinkle injections and the level of training and experience of your dermatologist, Dr Firas Al-Niaimi.
What can I expect from my treatment?
Almost instantly, your overactive calf muscle will settle, allowing it to shrink over time. You can soon expect slimmer, feminine legs, with results lasting up to 3-4 months. In order to maintain these results long-term, repeat treatments are necessary as and when required, with the results being known to last even longer with each new treatment session.
What is the recovery time?
This is a minimally-invasive procedure that is gentle, yet effective, and requires absolutely no downtime at all. This makes for a very convenient treatment that rarely hinders the day-to-day schedule of the patient.
How much does calf slimming cost?
Dr Firas Al-Niaimi charges £1000 for calf slimming with Botox. A consultation is required initially at a cost of £250, but this is redeemable against treatment, so if you decide to go ahead after the initial consultation, the balance to pay for your treatment would be £750.
Who is suitable for calf slimming?
Calf slimming is the perfect solution for patients looking for more sculpted, sleek legs that look both feminine and youthful, particularly patients with bulging, muscular calf muscles. In some cases, it might be that other concerns are at the root of the problem for larger calves, such as stubborn pockets of fat, in which case other treatment options would be better suited to you.
The best way to determine your suitability for this type of treatment is to schedule a consultation with leading London dermatologist, Dr Firas Al-Niaimi. He takes pride in an attentive approach to patient care, creating a personalised, bespoke treatment plan for each and every patient so as to offer the best possible results.
