By injecting this product in the right spots, you can improve the neck bands and horizontal creases in the neck. Let’s find out how BOTOX® can reduce your neck and shoulder pain while also improving your posture. 

Understanding Botox 

Before we get into neck and jawline contouring, let’s start with the basics. Botox, short for botulinum toxin, is a purified protein, injected into precise areas to smooth facial creases and lines. Botox injections have revolutionized the field of cosmetic dermatology by offering a safe and non-invasive solution to combat the signs of aging. This FDA-approved treatment targets dynamic wrinkles caused by repeated muscle contractions, such as crow’s feet, forehead lines, frown lines, gummy smile, chin dimpling, as well as many other areas!

Benefits of Botox

This non-invasive procedure offers incredible benefits for those seeking a rejuvenated and more defined profile. Botox can be used for many different things including smoothing wrinkles on the face and neck, relaxing the masseter muscle in your jaw to avoid teeth grinding and to create a slimmer jawline and cheeks,, relieving migraines, reducing the appearance of your platysmal bands and horizontal neck creases. 

How Botox Works for the Neck and Jawline Contouring

Botox when administered by an experienced injector, can be used to redefine the neck and jawline contours by addressing muscle-related concerns: 

  • Platysmal bands which are the vertical bands on the neck that become more prominent as we age. Botox is injected strategically to relax and soften these bands, resulting in a smoother, more youthful appearance. 
  • Jawline Definition: By injection Botox into the masseter muscle, which is one of the muscles that helps you chew and is located by the angle of your jaw. In some cases, patients clench their jaw in their sleep which causes headaches and results in a masculine square face. Injecting Botox into this muscle helps relax the muscle and alleviate the pain and cosmetically slims the face due to thinning of that muscle. 

You may notice some improvement in your symptoms within a few days after the treatment. However, it may take up to two weeks for you to enjoy its full effects.
