  • Date: May 24 2023

We often pay attention to improving aging signs on the face, while an aged neck may give-away ones true age. Neck is one of the first areas of the body to show signs of aging.

As we age, the skin and muscles of our neck lose their elasticity and tone, which can lead to the formation of wrinkles, drooping skin, and a double chin, all in all known as the turkey neck.

This often contrasts with an aged face treated with various aesthetic measures.

Botulinum toxin, is a safe neurotoxin that is used to treat a variety of medical conditions, including muscle spasms, excessive sweating, and wrinkles. It is often used to improve appearance of the neck.

These injections are typically performed in the clinic by a trained dermatologist. The injections are very precise, almost painless and only take a few minutes. Most patients experience minimal discomfort and can return to their normal activities immediately after the procedure.

The results are noticeable within a few days and can last up to 4-5 months. The effects are temporary, so treatments shall need to be repeated after 4-6 months to maintain the results.

It is important to note that this is not a cure for aging, but it can help to improve the appearance of the neck and make you look younger.

So, who is ideally suited for botulinum toxin for the neck? 

  • Those with a lax skin of the neck and banding of the neck muscles known as platysmal bands (after the platysma muscle in the neck)
  • Crepeyness of the neck skin

  • Those with neuromuscular disorders such as Myasthenia Gravis or Eaton Lambert syndrome.
