Las Vegas Botox Injections for Neck Wrinkles
Loss of collagen and elastin due to age, exposure to the elements, as well a laxity of the platysma neck muscle can contribute to the formation of horizontal lines called necklace lines and vertical ridges called platysmal bands.
These lines and ridges may be treated with Botox Cosmetic injections which will keep the muscles that cause the neck wrinkles to form from contracting. While it may take a greater amount of Botox to treat neck wrinkles than for most other facial wrinkles, the results may last longer due to less muscle movement in the neck. If the patient is consistent with their Botox treatments, over time the etching of the lines may be diminished or eliminated.
In addition to Botox, some physicians may use dermal fillers such as Juvederm, Perlane, or Restylane, injected underneath each line. These fillers actually add volume and smooth away the lines and wrinkles on the neck.
