BTOX Trapezius Shoulder Slimming Treatment Singapore

What are the benefits of shoulder slimming?

An attractive feminine silhouette would consist of a slender neckline, slim shoulders and well defined collar bones.

On the other hand, hypertrophied or bulky shoulders may give a more masculine or manly appearance.

The main muscle that contributes to the bulky shoulder appearance is the trapezius muscle and this would be the muscle targeted with BTOX for shoulder slimming and contouring.

Benefits of BTOX Trapezius treatment in Singapore

1) Shoulder Slimming

When injecting BTOX into the portion of the trapezius muscle between the neck and shoulder, it helps to relax the muscle fibers in this specific portion, inducing a process called muscular disuse atrophy.

In simple terms, when a muscle is relaxed and rarely used, it shrinks in size over time.

This reduction in trapezius size would help to slim and contour the neck and shoulder line, giving a more feminine and attractive appearance which is the aim of the shoulder slimming treatment.
