Platysmal Neck Bands

4 Frequently Asked Questions About Platysmal Bands

What can be treated?

At our Nottingham clinic we can offer treatments that will help to reduce neck lines by reducing the Platysmal bands. This results in a smoother and more youthful neck as well as a more defined jawline. Botox can be used to weaken these muscles by blocking the action of selected muscles which reduces their power and cause a reduction in muscle size over time.

What happens during the Platysmal Bands treatment?

A small quantity of toxin is injected into the Platysmal muscles. Treatment takes only 5-10 minutes to perform.

What can be expected after treatment?

As with any procedure involving needles, there is a small chance of mild bruising or mild transient redness at the site of injection but in most cases these are not seen.

The Botox takes about a 1 week to begin to take effect, when you will first feel some softness of the Platysmal muscles. At 6 weeks the softened muscles will reduce in size and you will see a smoother neck.

How long do the effects last?
The effects of the Botox in weakening the muscle typically last about 3-6 months, but in some patients the effects can last longer. Many people find they only require a repeat treatment about once a year before the masseter volume begins to increase again.
