This treatment is a great option to reduce sagging neck skin, restore jawline definition, and rejuvenate your neck contours.

What the treatment can do

Prominent neck bands giving your neck a heavy, saggy look? With age, the platysma muscle of your neck becomes stronger. This causes vertical bands to develop, giving a saggy look, and taking away the definition of your jawline and neck silhouette. For those bothered by their vertical bands, we have a no downtime solution.

Neck platysma band injections are a safe and effective treatment that improves vertical bands. It works by relaxing the platysma muscle, softening the bands to reduce sagging. The treatment restores your jawline and neck contours, and works well with jaw fillers and collagen stimulators.

Our team know how to treat neck bands safely and with precision. Get in touch for an assessment, and let us design you a personalised treatment to improve your neck bands. We know how to achieve natural, yet noticeable results.
