BOTOX® Cosmetic is a great treatment for all wrinkles and other cosmetic problems caused by overactive muscles. It can be used to improve the appearance of banding in the neck (sometimes described as “turkey neck”) caused by the platysma muscle.
There are two main cautions to keep in mind about BOTOX® Cosmetic treatment in the neck.
First, banding in the neck can have many possible causes and BOTOX® Cosmetic is not always the right treatment. It’s important to talk to a doctor about the causes of neck banding and make sure BOTOX® Cosmetic is the right treatment for you.
Second, because the platysma muscle is thin and spreading of BOTOX® Cosmetic to the muscles of the throat is potentially serious, it’s important to work with an experienced injector who can make sure you get the right dose of BOTOX® Cosmetic injected directly into the muscle.
