Botox® for Neck Bands

Aging causes a variety of changes in your appearance. Among those are wrinkles on the neck. Neck bands, or cords, caused by aging can be a source of displeasure, particularly for those whose neck is a prominent feature in their appearance. Keeping your neck looking young as long as possible is a goal many people pursue. Botox® injections can help with the pursuit of a youthful neck.

Botox is a minimally invasive option for rejuvenating the appearance of the neck. Aging causes particular neck muscles, called the platysma muscle bands, to become more prominent. As this happens, wrinkles and lines appear, adding unwanted years. Botox injections relax these overactive dynamic muscles by blocking signals from the nerves to the brain. This allows the skin overlying the targeted areas to appear tighter and younger looking.

The Aging Neck

The platysma muscle bands are a pair of vertical neck muscles. They are located at the front and sides of the neck. Throughout your life these muscles are very active. Because of this hyperactivity, they usually increase in size as you get older. At the same time, your skin is going through changes also. The proteins that give skin its full, youthful look, collagen and elastin, are degrading. The skin is losing some elasticity, and it is not as well supported as it was in youth. Volume in the skin is also lost as the breakdown of collagen and elastin progresses. These changes cause the neck bands to be more prominent and the overlying skin to look aged.

Botox treatment stops the transmission of some neural signals in the muscle. This causes the muscle to relax more, so they become less prominent. The results create the appearance of a smoother, younger neck. The treatment lasts for about four months before another treatment is needed.

I've been to Michele for a numbers of years for various procedures and she's fantastic, a true artist. Michele never pushes procedures, always takes her time and the final results are superb. I'm in the entertainment industry and need to look my best. I'm thrilled that she's now moved offices and I was able to track her down, I wouldn't trust my face to anyone else. My advice, put yourself in her hands and trust and you'll be amazed at the results: not only is her work exceptional but very natural.

I have gone to Michele for more than 10 years, following her to her new location. It's so long ago but I think I heard of her expertise in a magazine article or blog. I trust Michele completely and have done botox and filler on many occasions during this time, The results are always perfect, so natural.

As someone who was very hesitant to try Botox, as I am a performer/dancer and expression is a huge part of my career, I could not be happier with the treatments I have received from Michele! I have gotten so many "You look so young!" and "You skin looks incredible!". Michele took her time to explain to me the benefits of different treatments and was very responsive to my concerns. I have recommended friends to her who are so grateful to me! As a person who came to aesthetic medicine through an incredible journey of her own, Michele is unparalleled in her compassion, skill and knowledge. Go see her! You will be in the BEST hands!

Melodie D.

Michele Rivard is the best I have had for my injections of botox and fillers. She is meticulous, exact and knows what needs to be done to make my face be the best it can be. I highly recommend her for whatever you want done and you will be happy with the results.

Meredith G.

Saw Dr. Khosh for a fractured nose. He reset my nose beautifully (and with little discomfort to me) and then discussed some of my sinus issues with me upon my follow up visit. Never felt like he was rushing me out and felt very confident in his abilities. I would highly recommend to anyone needing plastic or reconstructive options!

Jackie C.

Great front office, really good experience after what was a terrible accident. I was made to feel comfortable. Dr. Khosh is very good at what he does. I'm still healing but I'm confident of the results

Kaitlin M.

Dr. Khosh takes exceptional care of his patients. He has operated on me twice, each time making me feel extremely comfortable and satisfied with the results. His staff is also very kind and knowledgeable.

Leah G.

Upon hearing of the overwhelmingly positive experience a friend of mine had in choosing Dr. Khosh as her surgeon, I decided to make an appointment for my own septoplasty/rhinoplasty/turbinate reduction. Although I was slightly skeptical as the praise I had heard seemed a bit hyperbolic, all uncertainty dissipated after meeting the Doctor and his staff. My pre- and post-operative experience was excellent in terms of concerns adequately addressed prior to the surgery and mitigation of any bruising in the convalescent period. Despite my apparent predisposition to rather slower healing, a year after the surgery, my nose looks really pretty and my breathing entirely unobstructed! I highly recommend Dr. Khosh!
