Botox (allergan brand) for the reduction of arm muscles to make my arms look more feminine. Will this help? (photo)

Thank you for sending photos of your arms. Botox, to reduce the size of the deltoid muscles that round out the shoulders, will also lead to weakness of the muscles. The deltoid muscles are responsible for raising your arms by your side. You will probably need a significant dose of Botox to shrink the bulk of the muscles and it will need to be repeated every few months. Compromising function is not a wise trade-off, in my opinion.Your arms appear strong and well-proportioned, both of these features are not inconsistent with looking feminine. Bony shoulders and skinny upper arms appear weak and unhealthy, and not esthetic. The rounder shape that you have is definitely more attractive.
My personal opinion is to enjoy the shape and strength associated with youthful arms rather than try to change your naturally proportionate arms into weak-looking skinny arms.
