What are Neck Lines and Bands?
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 necklines, platysmal bands occur as we grow older and contract the muscles. They may be horizontal and/or vertical. As we age, jowls start to appear and the jaw line does not remain a smooth line anymore. The skin on our necks can also age and wrinkle due to sun exposure (our neck are usually the least covered part of our bodies).
Botox® (Botulinum Toxin) injections for Neck Lines and Bands
The problem 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. Botox® is a temporary solution and its effects are fully reversible. Although its full benefit may not be seen for a couple of weeks after a treatment, the effects of Botox® typically last for about three to four months. Botox® injections are quick and convenient to administer and Bellissima offers some of the most competitive Botox® prices.
Complications with this procedure are very rare but can include dysphonia (voice weakening), dysphagia (weakness in swallowing) and depression of the angles of mouth.
