A youthful appearance depends on more than just a smooth, line-free face. The neck is equally important to create a vibrant, refreshed appearance. Even though there are some amazing, permanent results available today, significantly improving the signs of early aging in the neck, the invasive surgical techniques and lengthy recovery time (not to mention pain) might leave you wondering, “Why must getting a beautiful neck have to be so cut throat?” Well, it doesn’t have to be.
Necklace Lines refer to those horizontal lines, running across the middle of the neck. Genetics, weight changes, and the normal aging process are all responsible for the development of Necklace Lines. These deep lines can start to appear as the skin ages, but sometimes they will begin to show more at a relative young age.
Necklace Lines are easily treated with quick injections of Hyaluronic Acid fillers, such as the dermal fillers Juvederm and Restylane. Sometimes a combination of Botox Cosmetic and dermal filler is used to fill the creases, creating a softer appearance to the dimpled skin for up to six months are longer.
Platysma Bands are visible as the platypmal (neck) muscle loses elasticity and becomes lax. This change causes vertical ridge or “bands” to be noticeable, especially when the muscle contracts. Overly expressive women often find these lines to be exaggerated. Those who are especially expressive may note more prominent neckbands.
Luckily, neckbands respond exceptionally well to Botox Cosmetic. Helping the neckbands relax, the neurotoxins in Botox Cosmetic can restore a slender, attractive neck for a full three months. A treatment takes less than 15 minutes in the office, allowing patients to get right back to their routine activities.
Don’t fool yourself; tackling only those pesky facial wrinkles will not bring about a younger appearance. Women should begin their rejuvenation journey by making a full inventory of their skin’s needs.
