Necklines or platysmal bands are vertical bands in the neck that can be seen at rest and is a particular area of concern as the sagging of the skin is a dead giveaway of old age.
Platysmal bands are prominent in patients who have thin skin or without an abundant layer of fat on their neck. The deeper they are the harder it is to conceal them with makeup and not everyone is comfortable with surgery. That is why we bring our members the option of Neuromodulators Botox to rejuvenate the neck and leave a youthful impact.
Botox is a treatment where we inject Neuromodulators into the skin. The neuromodulators temporarily reduce the constant movement of Neck muscles which causes wrinkles. The treatment delivers predictable and suitable results within a few days.
The neuromodulators temporarily relax the muscles from their constant movement; reducing the appearance of wrinkles around the neck leaving skin with a youthful look. The injection is placed deeply into the platysma muscle and only 15 BU (Botox Units) are injected per band.
Neuromodulators are injected with ultra-fine needles targeting the wrinkled area. Botox works by blocking the nerve signals temporarily to stop the facial muscles from contracting.
When injected properly, the results can be seen right after the first treatment however botox takes approximately 2-4 days and the effects of it last up to at least 3 months.
Botox is not painful however the pain and discomfort depends on the patient’s pain threshold for needles and if necessary, the patient can be given a numbing agent to reduce any discomfort experienced.
During the treatment you might feel a little discomfort from the pricking of needles. The treatment does not require any anesthesia. Most people can even get the treatment done during their lunch breaks and are able to go right back to work after their appointment.
We have experienced licensed nurse injectors who are qualified to perform Botox injectables.
