What Are Neck Bands?
Neck Bands form as a result of excessive downward pull by your neck muscle, brought on with ageing. This muscle, called the platysma, is a very large muscle encasing your neck. Neck Bands are most often seen in older, very thin women with low body fat. In more prominent cases Neck Bands can look like vertical ropes connecting the jaw to the chest.
How Are Neck Bands Treated?
Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants can be used to relax Neck Bands and smooth out the ‘ropey’ appearance of your neck. Results are usually seen in a few days to a week and can last up to 3 or 4 months.
What Is A Nefertiti Lift?
A Nefertiti Lift involves addressing muscle pull along the jawline as well as the Neck Bands. By addressing the jawline and Neck Bands together using Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxants, Dr. Jodie can achieve significant lift throughout the lower face and neck. (Nefertiti was famous, amongst other things, for her flawless jawline and neck).
What Is Involved In Treatment Of Neck Bands With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne?
After Dr. Jodie has thoroughly assessed your face and neck to see if you are a good candidate for treatment of your Neck Bands, she will apply ice to numb your treatment area, so that you are comfortable throughout. Dr. Jodie will ask you to pose so your Neck Bands stand out and then inject Anti Wrinkle Muscle Relaxant along the length of each band from the jawline down your neck using a tiny needle. Usually, two to four bands will be treated in one session. To complete the Nefertiti Lift, she will also inject a small area of your jawline where your neck muscle overlaps and causes downward pull on your lower face. Following the procedure, you can get on with your daily life, as there is no significant recovery time, apart from an occasional small neck bruise, which is usually coverable with concealer.
Tailored Treatments Of Neck Bands With Dr. Jodie In Melbourne
Dr. Jodie will assess your face and neck carefully to ensure that you are an appropriate candidate for treatment of your Neck Bands with Anti Wrinkle injections. It is important to be certain that your Neck Bands are, in fact, the result of an overactive neck muscle prior to treatment. If your neck changes are due to saggy skin or fatty tissue, rather than muscle pull, Anti Wrinkle injections, at best, won’t help and, at worst, may worsen the appearance of banding and sag. This is why it is imperative that your clinician has experience and knowledge in proper assessment and selection of the most appropriate treatment. In Dr. Jodie’s hands, you can feel confident that she will choose and deliver the right treatment for you.
