Since the launch of the Barbie film, a new cosmetic trend has emerged: Barbie Botox. On TikTok alone, #barbiebotox has collected over 10.4 million views. Users have shared before and after shots of the Botox® treatment, including how it defines and sculpts the upper body frame.
Is this trend for life in plastic truly fantastic? In this blog, we’ll discover what Barbie Botox is, its benefits and how effective the results are here.
What is Barbie Botox?
Although Barbie Botox is a new phenomenon to many, this botox treatment, known as Traptox, has existed in the cosmetic world for a long time. It is prevalent in China, Japan and Korea and has been used by celebrities such as Kim Kardashian.
Traptox involves injecting botox into the trapezius muscles, stretching from the base of your neck, shoulders and down to your middle back. These injections work as a neuromodulator, which causes the muscles to shrink from reduced stimulation. As a result, Traptox patients achieve a slimmer neckline, sculpted shoulders and a petite upper body frame.
What are the benefits of Traptox?
1. Creates a slimmer, sculpted appearance
Botox effectively minimises signs of ageing, such as wrinkles and fine lines and treats medical conditions such as hyperhidrosis. It is also known to tighten loose, sagging skin and has a similar effect on a person’s traps.
As Traptox reduces muscle stimulation, the traps will shrink over time, resulting in the appearance of a longer, more defined neck. These results help you achieve the neck of the famous Barbie doll. Many patients who receive Barbie Botox see results lasting up to six months before top-up treatment is needed.
2. Reduces muscle tension and pain
Besides having a Barbie-like neck appearance, Traptox can also effectively relieve muscle tension, knots and pain. Poor posture, inactivity and exercise contribute to trap pressure, and as many of us work in sedentary jobs, this is a common pain shared by all.
Injecting directly into the trapezius muscles will relieve tension in the specific points causing pain. With pain-free traps, you’ll also benefit from reduced headaches and migraines, which link to pressure in this region.
3. Trusted by Professionals
Botox is an FDA-approved, safe and effective cosmetic treatment. Since its approval in 2002, botox has become a reputable anti-wrinkle treatment practitioners use worldwide. And since Traptox is a form of botox, patients can rest assured this procedure is safe.
Side effects can occur, such as bruising, swelling or redness at the injection site. This is common for many injectable treatments. At Omniya Clinic, our practitioners will guide you with rigorous aftercare instructions to ensure you achieve the best results without risk.
