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.
