Treatment for Neck Lines
The skin, muscles and fatty tissue in the neck area are impacted by the effects of aging. As the skin loses elasticity and muscles sag, the human neck can begin to resemble the neck of a turkey. Vertical neck bands and horizontal lines are among the first aging changes that can affect the neck. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer non-surgical treatment for neck lines and bands at our clinic in Irving, TX.
The creases in the neck skin occur when you bend your head forward. When you are younger, the skin has wonderful elasticity and stays smooth and unlined. As the skin ages, these creases begin to stay etched on your neck. The horizontal lines make the neck appear older, which is why many people prefer to have treatment to get rid of neck lines.
Cosmetic injections are an effective non-surgical treatment for neck lines. Both Botox® and dermal fillers can be beneficial for rejuvenating the neck without surgery. Botox relaxes muscles that can create both lines and bands on the neck. Dermal filler injections can plump under the skin to smooth away neck lines for a more youthful appearance.
Neck Band Treatment
The neck bands or cords are the vertical muscles that are visible on the neck. As you get older, the platysma muscles can begin to appear more pronounced. While this can be corrected with a deep plane neck lift, which Dr. Stefan Shuaib offers at Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, in the early stages, Botox injections can be effective for treatment of pronounced neck cords. The relaxation effects of Botox can minimize neck bands for 3-4 months before treatment needs to be repeated.
The neck area can give away your age if it is not treated with the same anti-aging care as the face. When neck lines and cords begin to appear, there are quick and simple cosmetic treatments that can rejuvenate the neck. Cosmetic injections only take 15-20 minutes to perform, and there is no downtime required after your procedure.
