Neck Band Improvement Santa Barbara – Platysma Neck Bands

The neck reflects aging and reveals your age, even though you may look significantly younger. Platysma neck bands become looser, and this leads to a much larger issue to deal with, as the far as the neck is concerned. Horizontal necklines and other problems with the neck skin affect you, which should not be the case. This is why aesthetic medicine has come a long way and can now offer great results through the use of Botox neck contour correction. This is a well-established product with increasing popularity and versatility in its usage, guaranteeing maximum effectiveness and thorough neckband improvement.

As the aging process occurs, the neck bands become looser and horizontal lines begin to form often causing an inaccurate reflection of our actual age.  Using Botox, we can relax the neck bands and the neck muscles to help decrease the visibility of the neck bands and wrinkles.  In doing so, our youthfulness can be restored.

There are other treatments for the neck region which can be used in correlation with Botox injections such as Kybella and skin tightening.  Find out more about how all of these treatments can help with neckband improvement by contacting Dr. Sheffield and SB Aesthetics at the Santa Barbara office today.

How Effective is Botox for this Treatment?

Botox is injected on the neck, in order to relax and loosen up the platysma bands. As soon as these muscles relax, the hyperactive bands stop functioning so much and the result is softer smoother looking skin. The concept is simple and yet greatly effective. You inject a product that weakens the muscles or even paralyzes them to an extent. This leads to a much better control over the intensity of these muscles, which are responsible for the prominent saggy or turkey neck.

Why Trust Dr. Sheffield for Botox Injections?

It is true that you should only trust certified and experienced professionals when it comes to your health and well being. Botox injections are not dangerous, but they need to be administered by somebody with extensive knowledge and training in the field of aesthetic medicine. Botox in neck can be challenging, and this is the main reason why you ought to leave the procedure to the professionals. Aesthetic medicine has made great leaps forward, and this is reflected on the quality of work provided.

How Long Do the Results Last?

Typically, you will be able to enjoy the results of Botox for neck wrinkles for a few months, stretching from three to six months in particular. The average period of time in which the results are mostly visible goes up to four months. The process only takes half an hour to complete, so this is a treatment that can be repeated for as many times as you want. There are no side effects associated with the use of Botox for neck treatment. Botox injections are harmless, and they only act towards relaxing the area where the dynamic bands of the neck are found. As soon as the results begin to fade away or wear off, it is advisable that you reassess the situation and contact Dr. Sheffield for a follow-up. Botulinum toxin (or else Botox) performs miracles on the area of the neck, but these miracles do not last forever, unfortunately.

What Is the Estimated Recovery Time after Botox Injections?

Immediately after treatment, you will be able to leave the clinic and get on with your life as it is. The process is painless, and therefore you should not worry about aching just after the injections. Most people find it better to go home and rest. It is up to you to decide, but you need to know that there is no set recovery time after the Botox injections. Unlike many other procedures, both surgical and non-surgical, you should experience no significant side effects and hence your lifestyle is in no manner affected by the Botox injection.

Is It a Safe Procedure?

Botox is one of the safest injectables out there that you can use for restoration of your neck’s skin quality and elasticity. Neck rejuvenation does not happen overnight, and the state of your skin cannot be reversed on its own. It requires the contribution of a powerful ally. In this case, the ally is Botox – a toxin that is purified and leads to the weakening of your platysma bands. This weakening process is absolutely safe and does not apply any risk throughout the injections. You can repeat the process whenever you want so as to prolong the results you enjoy.

How Much Does It Cost?

Botox cosmetic procedures are not expensive, especially when compared to other treatments that do not offer the same results as this innovative therapy. Depending on the units of botulinum toxin that will be used and the type of skin where they are applied, the severity of the damage and the restoration needed, the cost may fluctuate a great deal. You need to keep in mind that you will require similar procedures of Botox for jowls and neck bands at regular intervals, typically twice a year. So you ought to calculate the cost based on the frequency of follow-ups and extensive procedures required.

Can I Get Other Cosmetic Procedures at the Same Time?

Although there is no restriction as to which procedures you can do along with Botox neck band correction, it is advisable that you prioritize first. You ought to discuss with Dr. Sheffield, in order to highlight the needs of your skin. After that, the right procedure will follow as per his suggestions. Depending on the gravity of the situation, you might need to combine Botox injections with another type of dermal fillers. Facial and neck sculpturing generally requires complex procedures, therefore, there is the possibility of running two different processes at the same time. If there is no imminent necessity, though, you had better take it one step at a time. In this way, you will be able to identify the improvement and see for yourself how powerful Botox can be on your skin.
