Botox for the Neck Skin FAQs

Can Botox Tighten Neck Skin?

Yes, Botox for the neck can help reduce the appearance of sagging skin. However, it is more suitable for patients with early sagging. Dr. Rokhsar offers other skin tightening alternatives like Thermage so that each patient’s aesthetic goals can be addressed. He is happy to help you choose the best alternative.

Can Botox Help Turkey Neck?

All patients are different, but Botox may be a good alternative for patients with certain degrees of “turkey neck.” Dr. Rokhsar examines each patient to find the best alternative, so book a consultation to learn more.

How Much is Botox for the Neck?

The cost of Botox for the neck varies depending on the location and the specialist’s expertise. Book an appointment with a board-certified dermatologist in your area to get an accurate estimate of the procedure.

How Long Does Neck Botox Last?

In most cases, the effects of Botox can last from four to six months, after which you can book an appointment for another session.

Is Botox in the Neck Dangerous?

Botox is a non-surgical, minimally-invasive procedure. However, like all cosmetic procedures, there are some risks and potential side-effects. These include the potential for infection, mild discomfort, and nausea.

How many units of Botox for turkey neck?

Botox can be an effective treatment for a “turkey neck,” which is characterized by the laxity of the skin and subcutaneous tissues. However, the number of Botox units needed can vary depending on the individual’s unique anatomy and the severity of the condition. The condition in the neck treatable with Botox is called platysma banding. Platysmal banding is the bunching up of the platysma muscle in the front portion of the neck which gives a wrinkled appearance. Botox relaxes the platysma muscle band making the area look less wrinkled.

In general, the average range of Botox units for neck bands is between 25 to 50 units. However, during a consultation, Dr. Rokhsar will determine the appropriate number of Botox units needed based on the patient’s muscle strength and the length and caliber of the neck band. The use of Botox can relax the muscles in the neck, which can improve the appearance of the turkey neck by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin.

Botox is not a substitute for surgery in cases where there is significant skin and fat excess. In those cases, facelifts and neck lifts remain the gold standard for definitive and instant results. Liposuction can also be an effective way to address a double chin. Dr. Rokhsar also uses the Thermitight skin tightening procedure which can cause dramatic skin tightening in this area without cutting or surgery. It’s best to consult with a board-certified dermatologist or cosmetic surgeon to determine the best treatment plan for individual needs.

How many units of Botox for a neck lift?

The amount of Botox units required for a neck lift varies depending on several factors such as the length and caliber of the neck band, muscle strength, and the desired results. Generally, neck Botox injections range from 20-50 units, depending on the individual’s unique needs.

How many units of Botox for neck lines?

The number of units of Botox required for neck wrinkles or bands may vary depending on several factors, such as the size of the treatment area, the severity of wrinkles, and muscle strength. Neck Botox usually requires 20-50 units of Botox to relax the neck muscles and prevent them from contracting to pull the skin down. This procedure is also referred to as the Nefertiti neck lift or Botox neck lift because it tightens and rejuvenates the neck skin.

Some of the common areas where Botox is injected and the recommended units of Botox for each area include:

  • Frown or Glabellar Lines: 20-50 units;
  • Crow’s feet: 12-24 units per side;
  • Forehead lines: 10-30 units;
  • Bunny lines: 12-40 units;
  • Upper lip lines: 4-10 units.

For vertical neck bands, Dr. Cameron Rokhsar recommends using Botox to soften their appearance by relaxing the muscles. The number of units needed may range from 20 to 50 units, depending on the length, size, and strength of the neck band.
