The ever-evolving world of cosmetic treatments has introduced a captivating sensation on social media, particularly TikTok, known as "Barbie Botox." Also referred to as Trap Tox, this trendy procedure targets the trapezius muscles in the upper back to address excessive muscle growth. With the new Barbie movie in theaters, "Barbie Botox" has once again become a hot topic in aesthetics. Social media platforms are abuzz with discussions about this intriguing new treatment.

Dr. Grover has years of experience in performing BOTOX treatments, enabling his patients to achieve the aesthetic of their dreams.

What is Barbie BOTOX?

"Barbie Botox" involves the use of neurotoxins like Botox Cosmetic, Dysport, Jeauveau, Xeomin, or DAXXIFY off-label to relax the overactive and contracted spasms in the upper trapezius muscle. The name "Barbie Botox" stems from the effect where the shoulders relax and the neck elongates, creating a slimmer upper body appearance. However, it is important to note that the term "Barbie" might be misleading since the primary purpose of the treatment is to address an underlying spastic trapezius muscle. This muscle tightness is commonly caused by activities like computer work or tasks that involve prolonged neck and shoulder tension.

The ideal approach to address these concerns is through activities such as exercise, stretching, and posture improvement. However, if these methods do not yield the desired results, FDA-approved neuromodulator treatments for spasticity are often considered. Dr. Grover recommends "Barbie Botox" for patients seeking greater relaxation of the shoulders and neck without experiencing pain, as it effectively softens the trapezius contraction.

Achieving the “Barbie look”

The procedure includes injecting the muscle, causing temporary weakness and reduced contraction. As a result, the muscle elongates and relaxes, creating a deeper angle between the neck and shoulder, resulting in a slimmer and longer neck, and providing a more delicate and feminine appearance. Dr. Grover likens this effect to Barbie dolls, which boast a 90-degree angle between the neck and shoulder.

How long do the results last?

The effects of "Barbie Botox" are temporary, lasting approximately three to four months, and require regular maintenance to maintain the desired outcome. Consistent injections can lead to muscle atrophy due to reduced use, potentially reducing the amount of neuromodulator needed for subsequent treatments.

Dr. Grover emphasizes the procedure's reversibility, allowing the muscle to regain its original bulk with regular use if desired. It is crucial for individuals considering "Barbie Botox" to consult with a board-certified aesthetic doctor to discuss their specific goals and potential risks associated with the procedure. While it offers an innovative solution for a more refined appearance, ensuring your expert injector's qualifications and suitability for the treatment is essential.

What is the takeaway?

Barbie BOTOX can help patients achieve a slimmer looking neckline. This aesthetic is popularly associated with Barbie dolls, which are known for having a markedly feminine look. Patients who are looking to achieve this timeless aesthetic may benefit from Barbie BOTOX.
