Can Botox be used to tighten the neck?
Ever notice those horizontal wrinkles that line your neck? Those are the targets of neck Botox. "Botox in the neck is more useful for improving the jawline than the neck itself in most cases," says Lynne Worthington, Fountain of Youth Medical Spa in Farragut, TN.
Yes Botox can tighten the neck!
Botox is the treatment of smoothing out the lines on the neck by injecting Botox into the platysma muscle. Botox is injected into this muscle to weaken it. In doing so, Botox targets the muscle that causes the look of bands, resulting in a smoother and tighter-looking neck.During this procedure
Botox® injections are used to tighten and redefine the jawline and provide a lift to the neck area. Small doses of Botox® are injected into the lower jaw and down the side of the neck along the lateral neck muscles.Neck Botox is, simply put, an injection of Botox into the neck for the purposes of paralyzing the neck muscles, thereby reducing wrinkles and fine lines.1
Benefits of Neck Botox
• Reduces wrinkles
• Improves fine lines
• Targets sagging jowls2
Botox is the gold standard for wrinkle reduction but, since it targets the muscles, it actually does much more. "It relaxes the muscles of the neck that pull down the jawline, thereby improving the jawline," says Carroll. That means that neck Botox can effectively tighten the skin, adding subtle changes to the shape of the jaw and neck, slimming it down and reducing sagging skin.
