Amazing results can be achieved with the use of Botox and Dysport for platysmal neck bands.
What are Platysmal neck bands?
Usually, muscles lie deep to the skin, which is not the case for the platysmal. Instead, the platysmal run just below the skin in the neck area from the clavicle to the border of the mandible. Because of its association with the skin, changes in the muscle and skin tension can lead to platysmal being more visible.
If you lose weight, the platysmal can become more prominent or also more visible when getting older. The layer of fat covering the platysmal becomes thinner.
How to get rid of Platysmal neck Bands?
Restoration of a youthful neck is essential in facial rejuvenation.
Botox is an easy and efficient method to get rid of mild to moderate platysmal neck bands. Botox injections in the platysmal muscle release the tension caused when we activate this muscle when talking, smiling, eating. As a consequence, skin in the neck area looks softer and rejuvenate, and it stops the neck from looking scraggy both vertically and along with the horizontal rings.
Younger patients will require less Botox injection treatment and may have better results than some. Still, some excellent results can be achieved as well in older patients when combining this treatment with Threads or Dermal fillers (in this delicate area, I use only a blunt cannula to inject fillers to avoid bruising). It also helps to tighten ageing skin and can restore the original contour of the jawline more effectively.
Does treatment for platysmal neck bands painful?
The treatments that we offer for platysmal are virtually painless and only take around 20 minutes. After 3-4 weeks, you will start to enjoy a rejuvenating neck, the effects of this treatment usually lasting from between three and five months.
