As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and it can start to appear sagged. This in particular happens to the skin around the neck, creating what is often called ‘a turkey neck’. We offer different treatments that address the loosening skin and visible platysma bands.
When our necks tighten with age, the platysma bands become more noticeable. These are the cords that appear when you tighten your neck on purpose. If they are visible even when relaxed, you may want to have treatment to make them appear youthful and smooth.
We inject a muscle relaxant to the bands which relaxes the muscles, causing them to become far less visible. The treatment is temporary so you may choose to repeat the procedure to keep the effect.
The Nefertiti Lift is a fairly new technique which uses Botulinum Toxin to redefine and reshape the jawline. If applied correctly, it will also soften marionette lines on the neck, which counteract the effects of ageing and loss of elasticity.
The treatment consists of injections along the lower jawline and the platysma muscles in the neck area, which provide an uplifting effect to the neck and jaw area. By relaxing the neck muscles and facial muscles, it creates an upward pull, reducing the sagginess of the areas.
This lift targets the area around the jaw-line and helps contour the upper neck. The Nefertiti lift reduces the appearance of ‘jowls’, tightening them with Botulinum Toxin injections.
