Botox for Neck Bands Treatment
The neck changes as much as the face due to aging. One of the noticeable changes that can make the neck look older are pronounced neck bands. Vertical cords or bands of muscles can line the neck, resulting in a much more aged appearance. If you want to rejuvenate your neck and smooth away these cords without surgery, Avance Plastic Surgery Institute offers Botox for neck band treatment at our clinic in Reno/Tahoe, NV.
Your neck is continuously in use, bending, turning and supporting your head. The platysma muscles are the vertical bands that are vital for neck support and movement, but due to decades of use, they can become larger over time. A youthful neck, especially for women, is smooth and svelte, without pronounced neck bands. With age, these neck cords can pop out, announcing your age, even when your face and skin still look youthful.
Smoothing Vertical Neck Cords
You do not necessarily need a neck lift or plastic surgery to rejuvenate the neck. If you have pronounced vertical neck cords, Botox injections are a non-surgical, non-invasive option to create a more youthful neck. Botox injections targeting the platysma muscle in the neck can allow them to relax, smoothing the neckline. Results can appear after a week. They should last for 3-4 months or longer before the treatment needs to be repeated.
If you have noticed your neck bands are more pronounced with age, there are cosmetic solutions available.
