Neck bands, known medically as patysmal bands, are the result of bunching and/or thickening of the wide, thin muscle that envelops our neck responsible for grimacing. These bands create a “clothesline”-like effect on the neck, giving the appearance of a sagging neck or turkey neck. In younger or middle-aged patients, these bands can be treated with small injections of Dysport or BOTOX® Cosmetic, which relax the muscle and improve the neck contour. The treatment for neck wrinkles and bands is virtually painless and results last from 3-6 months.
