Is Your Neck Giving Away Your Age? Consider Botox

Time and age do more than put wrinkles on your face. As you get older, you may also notice your neck looking saggy and wrinkled. It’s also common for women to develop vertical bands along the neck. These changes are subtle but can play a major role in your diminished confidence and overall youthful appearance.

If you want to rejuvenate your neck to look younger and healthier, consider using Botox.

Why Does the Neck Start to Age?

More than ever before, men and women are using non-surgical cosmetic enhancement methods to keep their faces looking smooth, young, and radiant. However, most people forget to care for their neck and chest with the same enthusiasm.

This can be a problem as aging continues because continual sun exposure, hormone fluctuations, and reduced production of collagen and elastin in the skin all culminate in wrinkled, sagging neck skin that only a turtleneck sweater can hide.

If your skin is unable to produce enough elastin and collagen, it can’t fight these signs of aging to return to its normal appearance. While there are plenty of preventative measures that can help keep collagen production churning longer than normal, eventually the skin needs an extra boost from an outside source in order to properly regenerate itself. This is where Botox becomes a valuable cosmetic treatment.

Botox For Platysmal Bands

Platysmal bands are two strips of muscles that run from the base of the neck up to the left and right sides of the jaw. Aging can cause these muscles to become enlarged and lose elasticity, leading them to become more prominent and visible.

Botox is an excellent solution for this problem because it can relax the platysmal band muscles to soften their appearance. While the neck may need more Botox than the face, the results can last longer since the neck muscles aren’t used as frequently as the facial muscles.
