Trapezius BOTOX®

Relax Overworked Trapezius Muscles for a Leaner, More Elongated-Looking Neck and Shoulders in Portland

Most of us already know about the ability BOTOX® has to minimize upper face wrinkles and other facial wrinkles, but treating the trapezius muscles on the back is also a possibility. In fact, “BOTOX® in traps” is one of the most increasingly searched-for topics related to this injectable, which has long been focused on the face. Trapezius BOTOX® in Portland—also known as “TrapTox” or “Barbie BOTOX®”—has lots of aesthetic benefits for patients, and some injectors also use it to provide pain relief. Our experienced and certified team of injectors at Aesthetic Medicine can help you find the best type of treatment for you.

BOTOX® in the Trapezius: How Does Trapezius BOTOX® Work?

The trapezius muscle extends over the back of the neck and shoulders area. BOTOX®, an injectable that contains botulinum toxin as its main ingredient, can be injected into the upper area of the trapezius muscles. Trapezius BOTOX® will block signals between the nerves and muscles so that the muscle won’t contract when you try to flex it. The muscle can eventually become smaller and slimmer as it atrophies, and the neck looks thinner and more “Barbie-like” due to the atrophied muscle as a result.

Trapezius BOTOX® not only provides a leaner, more elongated-looking neck and shoulders, but also provides some relief for pain, tension, and sti^ness in this area. It can even help to improve your posture.

BOTOX® for the Trapezius: What Are Some Injectable Uses Aside from Trapezius BOTOX®?

Trapezius BOTOX® is just one among many treatments that involve BOTOX® to enhance the appearance of the face and body. There are many other uses, such as:
  • A BOTOX® brow lift to raise the eyebrows slightly, providing brighter, more “open” eyes.
  • BOTOX® around the eyes to reduce wrinkles like crow’s feet.
  • BOTOX® under the eyes to soften fine wrinkles below the eyes.
  • DAO BOTOX® or BOTOX® for marionette lines to improve a downturned mouth.
  • Masseter BOTOX® to sculpt the lower face and jaw area.
Medical-related injectable treatments are not available from our practice, but some injectors provide underarm BOTOX® to improve excessive or abnormal sweating and BOTOX® for migraines to reduce the frequency of chronic headaches.

Trapezius Muscle BOTOX®: What Other Cosmetic Treatments Complement Trapezius BOTOX®?

Trapezius BOTOX® and other forms of BOTOX® are e^ective as aesthetic treatments, but there are also other approaches you can consider.

Dermal fillers (including the Juvederm® and Restylane® lines of hyaluronic acid fillers) and collagen stimulators like Sculptra® work di^erently from treatments like trapezius BOTOX®. Rather than relaxing muscles, fillers add volume and fullness to targeted areas. They can be used to reduce wrinkles that are caused by volume loss or to augment features such as the cheeks and lips.

How Botox® Cosmetic Works – The Science Behind The Treatment

BOTOX® Cosmetic has a one-of-a-kind formulation and only BOTOX® Cosmetic is FDA-approved to temporarily make moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet, and forehead lines look better in adults.

What Causes Facial Lines?

A combination of factors can cause facial lines. It’s not just about the cellular changes that may occur, or reduction of collagen, or damage caused by free radicals from the sun and the environment.

Repeated muscle contractions from frowning, squinting, or raising eyebrows cause skin to furrow and fold, gradually resulting in the formation of facial lines. BOTOX® Cosmetic works beneath the surface and temporarily reduces the underlying muscle activity that causes moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines in adults – to help them look visibly smoother. See real results with BOTOX® Cosmetic: the #1 selling product of its kind in the world. If you are looking for a Portland Botox specialist you can trust feel free to call or fill out the form above to schedule your Botox® consultation with the Aesthetic Medicine team.

When you frown or concentrate, the muscles between your brows contract, causing your skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make frown lines temporarily look better.


When you squint or smile, the muscles around your eyes contract, causing crow’s feet. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make crow’s feet temporarily look better.


When you raise your eyebrows, the muscles on your forehead contract, causing skin to furrow and fold. Your specialist will inject these muscles to help make forehead lines temporarily look better.

What Should I Expect?

Some patients receiving BOTOX Injections Portland report the injections feel like a pinch. You may begin to notice a visible smoothing of frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines within 24 to 48 hours, with results lasting up to 4 months for moderate to severe frown lines in adults.

BOTOX® Cosmetic is not a permanent treatment. If you discontinue treatment the moderate to severe frown lines, crow’s feet and forehead lines will gradually return.
