The natural aging process can wreak havoc on the surface of the skin, resulting in the appearance of fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. These tell-tale signs of aging can appear anywhere on the body but are, perhaps, most apparent on the face and neck.
Bands can develop on the neck as a result of tech neck, which is when wrinkles appear in horizontal lines when you look down at your phone or computer with great frequency. Vertical muscles in the neck, called platysma muscles, can pull at the skin on the neck, leading to loose, sagging skin and the appearance of jowls. The muscles found in the neck have a tendency to pull downwards, which causes sagging along the jawline and contributes to the prevalence of jowls. As such, Botox in the neck can help to improve the jawline for a tighter, more contoured look. A neck lift will also help with “turkey neck,” which is when the neck skin starts to sag, leading to loose skin that is unflatteringly compared to the neck flap of a turkey.
For patients looking to reverse these signs of the natural aging process, a Botox neck lift is a great solution.
Botox as a treatment option is often associated with erasing fine lines and wrinkles on the face, such as crow’s feet, and forehead lines. However, Botox injections are an extremely effective treatment for removing the fine lines and wrinkles on the neck. A Botox neck lift can help to eliminate dynamic wrinkles, tighten the skin, and improve the contour of the jaw and reduce the appearance of jowls.
