Shoulder Botox: Time to Take Effect?

Have you ever wondered why sometimes you found some skinny women masculine?  They are lean but looking big and broad. It is because they have muscular trapezius/shoulder muscles. Oversized trapezius muscles will make the necks look short and thick, and affect the shoulder-to-neck proportion. Shoulder botox injection is proven to help restore a feminine shoulder by losing the strong trapezius muscles.
A trapezius muscle is a triangular, paired muscle located on the upper back and neck. When you view the paired muscles together, it forms a trapezium where its name is from. The muscles connect neck and shoulder muscles, and it plays an important part on the shoulder movement and the shoulder contour. The Botulinum Toxin A contained in the shoulder botox injection solution will temporarily block the signal connection between nerves and muscles. Without the signal connection, the trapezius muscles will relax and hence your shoulder will lose its bulk. Viewing from the front, you are expected to see smaller shoulder muscles with sharper collarbones. While viewing from the back, the back will look thinner with a sharper silhouette, and more feminine. Do not expect an instant effect from a shoulder botox injection as the absorption and reaction takes time. Generally, you can see effects one week after an injection, and maximum results after one month.
A single dose of shoulder botox injection can normally last for 6 to 8 months, and it varies depending on your physical activity level, metabolism, etc. Botulinum Toxin is a neurotoxic protein that inhibits the contraction of muscle, it will stay in our body for 8 to 10 months. It means the effect from the botox injection is temporary, and hence relatively safe. Therefore, after a single dose of injection and if you have not changed your sitting posture and have kept using the trapezius muscle, the shoulder muscles will grow back and get bigger without regular botox injection. Like leg slimming and face slimming injection, a regular shoulder injection can maintain a constant slimming effect of the shoulder. However, a high dosage injection is not recommended as it may affect the restoration of muscles. Shoulder botox injection is only suitable for people with thick shoulders that are caused by strong trapezius muscle. You can self-test if you are suitable for the treatment by a preliminary check. Stand up straight with your hands on your hips and then stretch your shoulder back. Touch and feel the shoulder-neck area on one side either by the hand from the other side or ask a friend to help. If a hard muscle is felt, it means the trapezius muscle is strong and can be treated by the botox injection. However, if the shoulder is accumulated by fat and soft with no sign of strong muscle, it is suggested to treat the thick shoulder by lipodisslove injection or CoolSculpting.
You can kill two birds with one stone from receiving shoulder botox injection. The injection can restore your shoulder to a feminine shoulder and relieve your shoulder pain/fatigue at the same time. Trapezius muscle is a superficial muscle and can be reached easily through massaging to relax the muscle. Botox injection can also relax the muscles by blocking the signal connection. The application of botox on shoulder slimming achieves a dual (beauty and health) achievement that is a new concept and wonderful news for customers. Shoulder botox injection, face botox injection or leg botox injection, no matter which treatment you are going to get, it is important to visit a qualified doctor in a certified clinic to ensure a safe treatment. You may encounter shoulder weakness after the injection, but it will go away within 2 to 3 days, nothing to worry about. Also, some people are amazed that their shoulder tiredness has eased from the injection!
