Botox is widely known for its use in facial treatments, but did you know that it can also be used to give you a slimmer, tighter looking neck? Neck Botox can improve skin laxity, and fight the signs of ageing in your neck. This treatment is sometimes called a Botox neck lift.

The platysma muscles, which are responsible for creating prominent vertical bands and horizontal neck lines, are targeted during this treatment. As we get older these muscles weaken, which can give the appearance of a double chin, loose jowls or sagging skin. By relaxing these muscles, you can smooth fine lines and prevent further skin sagging for a more youthful appearance.

Botox strategically placed along the jawline, lower face and neck is also known as the ‘Nefertiti Neck Lift’.  This can help redefine the jaw, slim the neck and smooth fine lines and wrinkles on the neck. 

At Bloom Health and Wellness Studio, we are experts in this kind of treatment. We work with great care to ensure that you get the best results from your Botox treatment, whether we are treating your neck, or other areas of your face or body.

What Does a Neck Botox Treat?

Botox treats both vertical and horizontal wrinkles and lines on your neck. Sometimes, you will hear people referring to this as “turkey neck” or “tech neck”. “Tech neck,” refers to the wrinkles and lines formed from prolonged bending of the neck while looking at screens while “turkey neck” is characterized by sagging and loose skin, often a result of aging and reduced skin elasticity.

Neck Botox is known for the following results: 

  • Reduction of wrinkles and fine lines
  • Smoothing of horizontal neck lines
  • Improvement of skin texture and firmness
  • Reduction of sagging skin (turkey neck)
  • Minimization of vertical platysmal bands
  • Relief from chronic neck tension and pain
  • Enhanced jawline definition
  • Reduction of excessive neck sweating (hyperhidrosis)
  • Improvement in overall neck and facial appearance

Beyond aesthetics, Neck Botox can always help to alleviate chronic neck tension and pain by relaxing overactive muscles, as well as help with excessive neck sweating (hyperhidrosis).

What to Expect From a Neck Botox Session

A neck Botox session is similar to most other types of Botox. It’s quick, relatively painless and can produce great results. Knowing what to expect from the procedure can help you get the most out of your neck Botox session.

Consultation and Assessment

A neck Botox session begins with a consultation with a qualified medical professional. During this consultation, the practitioner will assess your neck skin, discuss your aesthetic goals, and determine if a neck Botox treatment is the appropriate treatment for you. This initial evaluation is crucial to ensure that the treatment is tailored to your specific needs and to discuss any potential risks or side effects.

The Procedure

On the day of the treatment, your neck area will be cleaned and prepped. The practitioner may apply a topical anesthetic to minimise any discomfort from the injections. Botox is then injected into the targeted muscles using a fine needle. The number of injections and the precise locations will vary based on your anatomy and the severity of the neck wrinkles or bands being treated. The procedure itself is relatively quick, typically taking about 15 to 30 minutes.

Post-Treatment Experience

Some people may experience mild discomfort during the injections, which are similar to a pinprick sensation. After the procedure, you may have slight redness, swelling, or bruising at the injection sites, but these side effects usually subside within a few days. Most people can resume their normal activities immediately after the treatment, although it is advisable to avoid strenuous exercise, alcohol consumption, and lying down for at least 24 hours to ensure optimal results.

When Can You See Results?

You can expect to see an improvement in the appearance of your neck within three to five days, with the full effects becoming apparent after about two weeks. The treated neck muscles will gradually relax, leading to a smoother, more youthful neck. The duration of the results can vary, but most people enjoy the benefits of neck Botox for three to six months. To maintain the results, repeat treatments are recommended.

Is Neck Botox Right for You?

Determining if neck Botox is right for you involves considering factors like your age, skin condition, aesthetic goals, and overall health. It is ideal for those noticing early signs of aging, such as horizontal, lines and wrinkles, vertical bands, or mild sagging neck skin, and for those experiencing tech neck from prolonged device use. However, it is important to have realistic expectations, as neck Botox requires ongoing treatments to maintain its effects.

Certain medical conditions, such as neuromuscular disorders, may not be compatible with Botox use, and women who are pregnant or breastfeeding should avoid the treatment. It is essential to disclose your full medical history and any medications to your practitioner to ensure that neck Botox injections are safe and suitable for you.

Is Neck Botox Safe?

Yes, neck Botox is generally considered safe when performed by a qualified and experienced medical professional. Botox has a long track record of use in both cosmetic and medical applications, with millions of treatments performed worldwide. However, like any medical procedure, it carries some risks and potential side effects. Common side effects include redness, swelling, bruising, and discomfort at the injection site or sites. These are typically mild and resolve on their own within a few days.

Neck Botox Aftercare

Proper aftercare is essential to maximize the benefits of neck Botox and minimize the risk of complications. Immediately after the treatment, it is advisable to avoid touching or massaging the treated areas to prevent the Botox from spreading to unintended muscles. You should also refrain from lying down, bending over for a short time following the treatment or engaging in strenuous physical activities for at least 24 hours post-treatment.

Avoiding excessive sun exposure, heat, and alcohol consumption for the first few days can help reduce the risk of swelling and bruising. Applying a cold compress to the treated areas can provide relief if any discomfort or swelling occurs. It is also important to follow any specific aftercare instructions provided by your practitioner, as these may vary based on your individual treatment plan.

Maintenance and Follow-Up

Regular follow-up appointments are recommended to monitor the results and determine when additional treatments may be needed. You should also communicate any concerns or unusual symptoms to your practitioner promptly. With proper aftercare and maintenance, neck Botox can provide a smooth, youthful appearance to an ageing neck, helping you to look and feel your best.
