The face and neck are common areas for visible signs of aging. This includes thickening of the vertical neck bands (platysma), a turkey gobbler look, and a turned-down mouth. With a Botox® neck lift, the neck bands can be softened and the jawline more defined to improve signs of aging without the use of a surgical procedure.
Botox® is a purified medication that relaxes the facial muscles. Although it is called a lift, Botox® does not actually pull up sagging skin around the neck. The formula works by temporarily blocking nerve signals from the muscle. With the muscles relaxed, muscle lines are softened. Botox® can also be placed in the corners of the mouth to improve a downward curve, and around the jawline to give it more definition. A skilled plastic surgeon can deliver the right amount of Botox® to the correct muscles to achieve the most effective results.
Candidates for a Botox® neck lift are those in the Lansing area who are unhappy with prominent neck bands and mild sagging in the lower face and neck making them look older. Those who want to refresh their appearance and improve these signs of aging without surgery can benefit from a Botox® neck lift. However, if significant sagging skin and excess tissue are present, patients might benefit more from a traditional neck lift or other treatment options. Dr. Colony can meet with you to determine if your signs of aging can be improved with a Botox® neck lift.
There is no downtown required after a Botox® neck lift, however, you might experience some mild bruising or discomfort at the injection sites. These should clear up fairly quickly.
In just a few days, patients treated with a Botox® neck lift can notice a more defined jawline with neck bands softened. These results can last for about four months. After this time, patients can decide to have a second treatment to maintain their rejuvenated appearance.
Recently had filler and botox done by Dr. Colony and I can’t say enough about how good it looks. I’ve gone a few other places in town and feel like he is by far the best!
I am beyond thrilled with my choice of a plastic surgeon. Dr. Colony is not only incredibly smart and he's got the bedside manner going for him which is quite hard to find in surgeons. I have not only recommended Colony to many friends, but I've actually realized a couple of friends had gone to him before without me realizing.
Dr. Colony did AMAZING work!!!! I could NOT be happier with my results. I am 6wks post op breast augmentation and I am completely 150% satisfied. I spent 2hrs asking questions in my consultation. He answered every single one of them. The procedure went perfectly and great CRNA and staffing. Great pre/post-op packet given before surgery. Am sooooo pleased with my results!! Couldn't be happier!! Would recommend to everyone, tell everyone about Dr. Colony!!
