Botox Neck Lift

Request A Consultation

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® Neck Lift in East Lansing

Botox® is a purified medication that relaxes the facial muscles. Although it is called a lift, Botox treatment does not actually pull up sagging skin around the neck. The formula works by temporarily blocking nerve signals from the neck muscles. 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.

Botox® Neck Lift Candidate

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.

Botox® Neck Lift Results and Recovery in East Lansing

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 Botox injections for a nonsurgical 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.

Patient Testimonials

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!!

How long does a Botox neck lift last?

Any Botox treatment will typically last for 3-4 months. Different factors can impact the length of your results, such as your metabolism, how many units were injected, how often you get treatment, and more.

How many units of Botox does it take to tighten the neck?

This can depend on your specific concerns and cosmetic goals. Generally, neck Botox will require more units because of the size and strength of the neck muscles versus treatment between the brows, for example.

Does neck Botox tighten the jawline?

Botox cannot tighten skin – rather, it can reduce the appearance of neck bands, producing a more youthful look. Dr. Colony can discuss ways to tighten neck skin that could be added to your Botox treatment package.

Can Botox fix neck fat?

Botox cannot reduce neck fat. However, treatment options like Kybella can help reduce a double chin in combination with a Botox neck lift.

Where does Botox go in the neck?

Neck Botox is often injected into the platysmal bands, the muscles responsible for causing vertical neck bands as we age.
