Botox Neck

The turkey neck or the wrinkle of the neck is one of the most difficult treatment procedure to do and to achieve. However, with the Botox neck injection, this problem can be overcome by our doctors and our clinic. This procedure is not as common as other procedures. For other resources: DrDavidLing.com

The turkey neck wrinkle is due to the laxity of the sternocleidomastoid muscle and the sliding down of the platysma muscle and its overlying skin.

The sternocleidomastoid muscle are those 2 muscle as seen from the view of the neck, 2 bands starting from the middle of the lower end of the neck, running upward and backward to the lower end of the earlobe, as clearly shown in the photos below. The platysma is a thin sheet of muscle that wraps over the entire of the neck, just below the skin, superficially located.

The face might be treated in a various way so as to mask the aging effects. However, the aging neck is much more difficult to mask. More often than not, the neck can reveals the truth about one’s age. This is because it is not as easy to treat the neck wrinkle as compared to the face.

Using Botox treatment is one of the simplest way and least invasive method to tackle the ageing neck problem. Of course, there is a more aggressive way to treat the neck wrinkle. That is by way of the surgery. Here, the extra skin is lifted and nipped off with the cut edges pulled and approximated and stitched together. The problem faced is the scar which can be seen.
