Neck platysma band injections Melbourne

With age, people in Melbourne often develop vertical neck platysma bands that extend from your jawline down the neck. Caused by overactivity of the platysma muscle, vertical neck bands give your neck a saggy appearance, and take away your youthful neck contour and jawline definition.

Vertical neck bands can be improved by treating the platysma with muscle-relaxing injections. This results in a more youthful neck and jawline contour, and an improvement in sagging neck skin.


Treatment takes 5 mins. No downtime.

Minimal discomfort. Numbing available.

Result within 1-2 weeks.

To maintain look, revisit every 3-4 months.

How it works

Noticing sagging bands of skin running down your neck? Ageing affects the neck, leading to sagging skin, and a loss of your sharp neck silhouette and jawline definition.

One of the key causes of an aged-looking neck is the platysma muscle. This muscle becomes more active over time, contributing to the formation of vertical neck bands.

Neck bands can be treated in Melbourne by relaxing the platysma muscle with muscle relaxing injections. Treating neck bands can restore more youthful contours to your neck, and improve sagging around the jawline and under chin.

Neck platysma band injections work by relaxing the platysma muscle, reducing its strength. The reduces the prominence of neck bands, giving a more lifted and contoured look.

The medical professionals at Cosmetic Connection Melbourne are specifically trained in treating vertical neck bands with cosmetic injectables. During your comprehensive consultation they will design a bespoke treatment plan aligned with your goals and expectations.

Combining neck band injections with wrinkle filler to soften horizontal neck wrinkles and to restore structure to the chin and jawline, and with collagen stimulating injections to improve the quality of the neck skin, can be used for a more comprehensive result.

    Vertical neck bands are caused by overactivity of the platysma muscle.

    The platysma is a thin sheet muscle that runs from jawline to collarbone, and is found just beneath the skin.

    As we age the platysma muscle becomes hyerpractive. This manifests as vertical neck bands, giving your neck a saggy, aged appearance.

    Having a non-surgical treatment for vertical platysma neck bands is a simple process.

    Your neck skin will first be cleaned, marked and numbed.

    Ultra-fine needles will then be used to precisely inject muscle-relaxing product into the platysma muscle responsible for the neck bands.

    Treating the vertical platysma neck bands with injections usually takes around 5 minutes to complete.

    You will see the final result from vertical platysma neck band injections 14 days after your treatment.

    Injections for vertical platysma neck bands last 3-4 months on average.

    The longevity of the result depends on the size and strength of the muscle, and the amount of muscle-relaxing product injected.

    There are a few steps to take before your vertical platysma neck band injections in Melbourne to optimise your result, and lower the risk of side effects. They include:

    • Cease all anti-inflammatories, aspirin, herbal supplements, fish oil, krill oil, glucosamine and vitamin E 1 week before your treatment (unless you have been advised to take these by a medical practitioner)
    • Avoid excessive alcohol for 24 hours before your treatment
    • Attend your appointment without makeup
    • Closely shave your neck the day before where applicable

    After having vertical platysma neck band injections in Melbourne you may notice mild redness and lumps under the skin at the injected area. These will resolve within the hour.

    The effect will start to kick in after 3-5 days, and increase in strength with the final result being seen 14 days after the treatment.
