TrapTox at Park Avenue Dermatology

The toll of everyday stress, posture, and chronic tension can significantly affect your neck and shoulder area, leading to discomfort and dissatisfaction with your appearance. At Park Avenue Dermatology we perform a treatment referred to as “TrapTox,” a specialized Botox®/Dysport/toxin treatment, to target these musculoskeletal issues directly.

TrapTox offers a novel approach to not only improve the aesthetics of the neck and shoulders but also to provide relief from the pain associated with chronic stress and tension in these areas. By carefully injecting Botox® into the trapezius muscles, we can achieve a more refined neck contour and reduced shoulder bulk, enhancing your natural silhouette while simultaneously easing discomfort.

What Is TrapTox?

TrapTox utilizes Botox® injections to relax the trapezius muscles, which extend from the back of the neck to the shoulders. This innovative treatment serves a dual purpose: aesthetically, it creates a more elongated neck and slimmer shoulder line; functionally, it provides temporary relief from chronic neck and shoulder pain.

The NYC TapTox Procedure: What to Expect

Each TrapTox treatment is designed to be minimally invasive and is generally well-tolerated by most patients. Before beginning, the targeted area on your neck and shoulders will be thoroughly cleansed to maintain sterility, and then, our expert dermatologists will carefully mark the specific sites where the Botox® injections will be administered. This meticulous planning is crucial for achieving the desired aesthetic and therapeutic effects. Every injection precisely targets the trapezius muscles to provide relief from tension and improve the overall contour of your neck and shoulders.

The actual injection process is both quick and efficient, typically concluding within 20-30 minutes. Utilizing a fine needle, our skilled injectors deliver Botox® into the predetermined points along the trapezius muscles. Patients often describe the sensation as a minor pinch, indicative of the procedure’s minimal discomfort. Our team’s expertise in Botox® application ensures that the entire process is conducted with the utmost care, aiming for an experience that is as comfortable as possible. 

Following the injections, you can immediately return to your daily activities.

When Will I See the Results of TrapTox?

The results of TrapTox, much like those from other Botox® treatments, typically become noticeable within a few days to two weeks after the procedure. Most patients start to see the aesthetic improvements and feel relief from tension in the neck and shoulders within 7 to 14 days. However, the onset of visible results can vary depending on the individual’s response to the treatment, the specific areas treated, and the amount of Botox® used.

The peak effects of TrapTox are usually observed around two weeks post-treatment, with the aesthetic enhancements and pain relief potentially lasting several months. The duration of the results can vary from person to person, with many experiencing sustained benefits for 3 to 4 months. To maintain the effects, follow-up treatments may be recommended as part of a regular maintenance schedule.
