The signs of aging can be seen in more places than just the face. Even if you receive Botox, dermal fillers, or other treatments, you may notice that your neck is also beginning to have issues. The flat muscle on the front of your neck is called the platysmal muscle. Over time, its integrity becomes compromised, causing it to break apart and create rolls of tissue.
These rolls of tissue are visible as neck bands that can extend from the lower neck to underneath the chin. Although age-related changes may be inevitable, living with them doesn’t have to be. Consult with Dallas Dermatology Partners to determine if a nonsurgical neck lift with Dysport could be right for you.
What Is Dysport?
Dysport is a neuromodulator similar to Botox. It’s derived from a neurotoxic protein inhibiting muscle contractions in the treated area. When the muscles can’t contract in a specific area, they also can’t form wrinkles and lines.
This means that a Dysport neck lift can effectively soften and reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles while simultaneously addressing sagging skin. The result is a more youthful-looking neck.
Am I a Good Candidate for Dysport for Neck Bands?
Only a dermatologist can determine if a nonsurgical neck lift is appropriate for you. However, suitable candidates are generally dissatisfied with the appearance of neckbands. Be sure to inform our dermatologists of your complete medical history, including whether you are pregnant or have an allergy to cow’s milk protein.
What Happens During a Nonsurgical Neck Lift?
If our dermatologist determines that Dysport for neck bands is right for you, the procedure doesn’t take much time. In fact, many of our patients like to schedule a Dysport neck lift on their lunch breaks.
First, we’ll cleanse the treatment area. Then, we’ll inject Dysport into the platysmal bands. Patients often need four to six injections. A nonsurgical neck lift causes minimal discomfort. It doesn’t require anesthesia or downtime. However, try to avoid putting any pressure on the treated area for the next few days.
What Can I Expect From the Results?
The results will not be immediately apparent. You may start to see an improvement within a few days, and the full results will be visible within a week or two.
For best results, treating both the face and the neck is advisable. Treating only one, but not the other, can create an uneven look—such as a youthful-looking neck beneath a face with wrinkles. It’s important to note that the results are not permanent. We can provide touch-up treatments every three to four months to maintain your results.
