In Asia, botulinum toxin treatment is commonly requested to reduce the calf hypertrophy, so that the legs look long and slim. The calf muscles have three heads arising from the two major muscle masses. Botulinum toxin can be injected into the medial and lateral portions of the calf muscles. Injections should be intramuscular and perpendicular. The mechanism of botulinum toxin treatment for calf hypertrophy is identical to that of benign masseter hypertrophy. Potential side effect included gait disturbance and fatigue when walking or running, but they rarely occur.
