Botox in the Ankles and Calves

Botox is used to remove wrinkles by temporarily paralyzing facial muscles. It is not suggested to be used in the ankles or calves. I am unsure what results you are looking for. I advise you to consult with a doctor who is familiar with Botox.

I do not think your feet or legs will hurt but I am really unsure why you would consider getting Botox to your ankles or calves. What are you trying to achieve with the Botox?

Thank you for your question jwalls1. Botox is a purified protein used to address wrinkles associated with facial expressions. It is not indicated to be used in the ankles or calves. I am not sure I understand why one would want it in that area. Please consult with a doctor for specific recommendations. Good luck!
