Neck bands are a common sign of aging that can affect the appearance of your face and neck. In most cases, these neck lines are a natural part of the aging process, but they can also be caused by genetics and lifestyle factors such as poor posture or spending too much time in front of computers and devices.
These vertical muscle bands that run from the jawline down to the collarbone are also known as platysmal bands. These bands can become more pronounced as you age, and they can create a shriveled or withered look that is unpleasant. Fortunately, there are several different treatment options that can help minimize the appearance of neck bands.
One of the most effective ways to reduce the visibility of neck bands is by using a dermal filler. A dermal filler is an injection that contains a gel like substance that can plump the skin, making it more full and less wrinkly. This is a minimally invasive treatment, and it can be completed within a few weeks.
Another way to minimize the appearance of neck bands is by using Botox. Botox is an injectable made from a purified neurotoxin that helps relax muscles in the face and neck. When the muscles relax, the overlying skin appears smoother and less wrinkly.
