The muscles and bands in the neck change as you get older. It is common for the vertical neck bands to become more pronounced, which could indicate advancing age. Softening the neck bands can create a more svelte, youthful neck. At RIVKIN Aesthetics, we offer Botox® injections for neck bands treatment at our clinic in Los Angeles on Wilshire Boulevard.
The platysma bands are muscles that run vertically from the clavicle to the chin. Aging, weight loss and other factors can enhance these cords, allowing them to stick out from the neck. Platysma cords bunch up on the neck and can make the neck look older or more masculine. Necks bands can also increase the appearance of a double chin or turkey wattle. Relaxing these muscles slim the neck for a more youthful appearance, which may be accomplished with Botox injections.
Non-Surgical Neck Smoothing
Neck muscles can bunch together to look like ropes connecting your collarbone and chin. Botox injections can rejuvenate an aging neck by relaxing the platysma bands. Botox is a neuromodulator that blocks nerve signals to the neck muscles that reduce contractions to shrink the vertical cords. Not only do the pronounced neck bands soften, as the muscles relax, but Botox can also gently lift the jawline for a tighter, more youthful appearance. Botox injections can offer a non-surgical option to smooth the neck and improve the chin and jaw.
Botox injections can be performed in a quick visit at our LA clinic with no downtime or recovery needed. The results of the injections begin to show in a few days after your treatment, and you can expect to enjoy a smoother neck for 3-4 months. Botox for neck bands is safe, with the most common side effects being slight bruising or swelling at the injection sites.
If you have noticed pronounced platysma bands on your neck, Botox treatment is a non-surgical option to smooth your neck for a more youthful appearance.
