Botox | Dysport: TrapTox
Neurotoxins such as Botox and Dysport can be injected into the trapezius muscles to help relieve pain caused by overworked, stressed or tight muscles. This tension can be caused by prolonged downward looking at computers, phones, or other work. When injected with neurotoxin, the trapezius muscle will relax leading to pain relief, and a slimmer appearance of the trapezius muscles. Relaxed trap muscles improve posture by creating elongation of the neck leading to a sleeker upper body look.
How does the procedure work: During treatment, a series of injections are precisely administered into the trapezius muscle.
Who is a good candidate: Trap tox is an excellent option for women and men who want to address stiff shoulder muscles and want shoulder relief. Overtime, this treatment can cosmetically soften shoulders creating a look of a longer neck and better posture. Results vary.
Recovery: No downtime required. Minimal bruising and swelling may occur resolving in a week or less.
Results Last: 3 to 5 months
