Platysma neck bands treatment is a cosmetic procedure that aims to improve the appearance of the neck area. The procedure involves the injection of a neuromodulator to target the platysma muscle, which is responsible for the vertical bands that can appear on the neck as we age. The goal is to soften and relax the muscle, resulting in a smoother and more youthful appearance of the neck.
The procedure is performed by a qualified medical professional and can take between 15 to 30 minutes to complete. The procedure is done with minimal discomfort. The results of the treatment can be seen within a few days and can last for several months.

All you need to know about Platysma neck bands treatment
The platysma muscle is already present in our necks. It looks like vertical neck bands, but it is not always visible until people reach a certain age.
With age, the muscles present on our face and neck start losing their elasticity and the outer skin starts to sag. The vertical bands become more apparent.
Like our face shows wrinkles and lines, our necks develop horizontal neck lines, neck fat and turkey neck on the neck skin. Most patients do not notice these signs until it is too late.
The platysma muscles can cause visible saggy jowls as well. Platysma neck bands treatment is essential to prevent these symptoms of ageing.
Your face and neck area will automatically show signs of ageing, wrinkles and loose skin. You can not prevent this, however, the intensity of your neck bands can depend on some factors.
One of the most important causes of neck bands is exposure to sunlight. We apply a paramount amount of sunscreen and use hats and scarves to protect our face from the harmful UV rays of the sun, but our neck skin often does not get the same treatment. Skin tends to become saggy and wrinkles faster from prolonged exposure to sunlight without proper protective measures.
Genetics, of course, comes into factor as well. A more prominent platysma band may have been passed down to you by your parents, which becomes more visible as you age.
Other factors include your age, your daily lifestyle and also your location.
You can not completely prevent all signs of ageing. But you can delay the appearance of neck bands up to some extent with proper skin care routines.
You can use retinol-based skin and neck tightening and other collagen-boosting creams.

Antiwrinkle injections like botox solutions use a toxin called onabotulinumtoxinA, which acts as a muscle relaxant. When pushed into the injection site, the solution will temporarily prevent the platysma muscles from moving in the treated neck area. The treatment relaxes your face and neck muscles to get the desired result.
