A Botox Neck Lift? What's that you say? If you're confused, it might be because you've always associated Botox with getting rid of wrinkles.
And while the idea of using filler to provide a "lifting effect" is becoming more and more common, the idea of a Botox Neck Lift might be new to you.
How is Botox Used to Mimic the Effect of a Neck Lift?
For those individuals suffering from neck bands, double chin, or turkey jowls, neck lifts are often a great solution.
Necks are often the first sign of aging, and removing excess skin and fat deposits from the neck can make you look radically younger.
So how does Botox Cosmetic mimic this effect? Essentially, the muscles in your neck can overcontract, exacerbating the aged look of the area.
By injecting Botox into the neck bands at the front of the neck or the side bands on the lower side of the face, the muscles relax, and jowls are reduced.
The overall effect is a raising, or, "lifting" of the face.
Meanwhile, injections of Botox into the face can also contour the face in ways that reduce signs of aging.
The combo of turkey jowls in the neck with a drooping in the lower corners of the mouth can make you look tired and older than you are.
Overall, a synergistic effect is achieved by applying Botox to various facets of the face.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Botox Neck Lift?
Neck lifts can be a wonderful way to turn back the clock, but they are ultimately a form of surgery and not everyone is prepared to take that step.
A Botox Neck lift is a great introductory step to get many of the same results.
