Hush LA is excited to introduce you to the “Traptox” treatment for trapezius muscle! Over the past several months, this new trend has received a ton of online attention as a consequence of numerous TikTok users from all over the world giving it a try and posting their results on the video streaming platform.

What is Traptox?

Traptox, aka “BarbieBotox” is a procedure that involves injecting a neurotoxin (Botox) into the trapezius muscle. This muscle expands outward toward the shoulders and reaches from the back of the head to just above the lower back. We all know that Botox is usually injected into the face in order to address fine lines and wrinkles and rejuvenate the skin’s appearance. Now we can inject the same botulinum toxin into the trapezius muscles, or the ‘traps’ for various purposes.

What is the trapezius muscle?

The trapezius muscle is a large superficial back muscle that resembles a trapezoid. It extends from the external protuberance of the occipital bone to the lower thoracic vertebrae and laterally to the spine of the scapula. The trapezius has upper, middle, and lower groups of fibers.

The trapezius (traps muscle) helps you move your head, neck, arms, shoulders and torso. This muscle is responsible for posture and movement. It allows you to tilt your head up and down and turn your head all around. It also helps you stand up straight, twist your torso, and shrug your shoulders or pull them back. The trapezius controls your scapula (shoulder blade) when you lift your arm or throw a ball.

The best way to decide if Traptox is the right treatment for you is to meet with our professionals. They will discuss your concerns and goals with you and help you make the right decision.

Traptox for the trapezius muscle FAQs

A new application of Botox called Trapezius Botox has emerged to address muscular tension in the trapezius muscle. When injected, the muscles in the shoulders can relax, giving you not only a relaxed look but also providing much-needed relief. Traptox for the trapezius muscle works by relaxing the trapezius muscle. When this muscle is relaxed, it becomes smaller and thinner, giving off a more feminine appearance. People will sometimes refer to this as the hunchback look. You won’t have an ugly bulge in your neck with the help of Traptox.

On top of cosmetic effects, this treatment is also ideal for patients suffering from migraines or neck and shoulder pain, as Botox helps relax tension and even improve mobility. We, at Hush LA, recommend speaking to our specialists about this treatment, and its benefits, aesthetic outcomes, and risks before deciding to undergo this procedure.
