Neck Lines & Bands

Neck Lines and Bands (Neck Rejuvenation)

Neck lines and bands are sometimes also known as 'Nefertiti Neck' or 'Turkey Neck'. Often some people give their age away, not by the skin on the face, but by the skin on the hands and neck.

With neck lines, platysmal bands occur as we grow older and contract the muscles. They may be both horizontal and/or vertical. As we age, jowls start to appear and the jaw line doesn't remain a smooth line any more. The skin on our necks can also age and wrinkle due to sun exposure (our necks are usually the least covered parts).

The aging neck is increasingly recognised for its aesthetic importance. Cosmetic physicians can offer a number of surgical and non surgical options for neck rejuvenation. Botox injections have revolutionised cosmetic surgery.


The benefits of BOTOX® injections for the treatment of Neck Lines and Bands

The problems outlined above with neck lines and bands can be corrected using Botulinum Toxin, which is injected into various points in the jaw line and neck. BOTOX® effectively softens these lines and can help reduce some of the pull on the lower face by creating a slight lift.

BOTOX® injections offer a safe, approved and non-surgical solution to the treatment of neck lines and bands.

There are four categories of neck aging. Patients with categories II and III are most satisfied with BOTOX® neck rejuvenation. Category IV patients are usually surgical candidates.

The whole procedure takes less than 30 minutes, is relatively painless and effects are usually visble within 7-10 days.
