Neck Bands

The platysmal muscle of the front of the neck, constantly pulls downwards and can lead to development of jowls or horizontal “necklace lines”. This can also give rise to prominent cords appearing vertically down the neck from the jaw and chin.

In selected patients, administration of BTX-A to these bands can give the visual effect of a mini-lift avoiding the need for surgery. This is combined with treatment to the underside of the jaw, thus improving the definition of the jawline. This procedure is often referred to as the “Nefertiti Lift”. Egyptian artefacts show Queen Nerfertiti as having a perfect jawline and the term was thus coined in her name.

It may be beneficial to combine this with some volumising filler along the jawline, to help restore lost volume and thus support to the skin.

Botulinum Toxin-A (e.g. Botox or Bocouture) remains the number one anti-ageing treatment at Perfect Skin Solutions. We primarily use botox for PREVENTION & TREATMENT of lines & wrinkles. We always aim to give you a natural result; we do not support the frozen look.

Our doctors have many years’ experience in using botox to treat Platsymal bands as well as other concerns like armpit sweating, teeth grinding/TMJ pain and migraines.

In our experience, “Botox” is still very misunderstood, even amongst patients who have been having it for some years. We often hear in consultation that “no-one has ever told me that when I have had Botox before!” Let us introduce you to a truly expert approach to this popular treatment.

Neck Bands

FAQ

It works by injecting botox into the area and blocking the nerve impulses to the muscles in the neck. The muscles then relax and can’t contract also causing the lines to relax. They then begin to soften giving you a younger-looking complexion.

During the treatment, multiple botox injections are made along each platysmal band in the neck. This treatment is quick and easy and great for someone who wants an enhancement without the downtime. You will be treated with genuine Botox or Bocouture which is why you can expect the best results that last longer. There is no requirement for numbing creams or anaesthetic. After every appointment, we like to see our patients after for a three-week review.

If your platysmal bands are prominent, especially when you are speaking, you may be a good candidate for this treatment.  We can also combine the Platysmal band treatment with our Morpheus 8 RF protocol to tighten loose skin and reduce fat pockets under the chin.

Within a few days, you will notice the visible effects of the botox and start to notice a smoother, younger looking neck. A review will be made for three weeks after your treatment so we can assess your results and make any necessary adjustments.

As with other areas of Botox use such as frown lines, forehead wrinkles and crow’s feet, Botox need to be repeated roughly every 3 – 4 months (some patients notice their results last longer and only need to have the repeat treatment twice a year). When the involved muscles are sufficiently weak that the patient can be placed on a maintenance program of Botox with fewer injections. This simple approach to correct platysma bands is often all the patient needs and helps avoid an operation in this area.

Common side effects following neck platysma band treatments include redness, swelling, bruising and tenderness lasting several days. Visible effects can be covered with our medical foundation. During your consultation, our doctor will go through a full consent form informing you of any other possible risks or complications.

There is no requirement for numbing creams or anaesthetic with this treatment. We use very fine needles and the treatment is very quick. If needed, we can use an ice roller and a vibrational tool to distract your nerves, to help you feel more at ease.
