Treatment options: Platysmal bands can be treated with Botox or Dysport. The needle is inserted directly into the muscle at four centimeter intervals, delivering a sum of 25 to 30 units of the injectable to the muscle. The relaxed neck muscles are no longer able to create unwanted neck bands (until the Dysport or Botox wears off, that is.)
The plastyma is a delicate feature, though, and complications like dyspaghia (difficulty swallowing) and dyspohonia (voice impairment) can occur.
Surgical treatments: For a price ranging bewteen $5,000 and $8,000, you can opt for cervicoplasty or platysmaplasty, more invasive means to reduce neck bands.
Cervicoplasty removes excess skin from the neck and pulls the remaining skin tighter. Platysmaplasty eliminates neck bands by removing or tightening a portion of the platysma, extracting a portion of the muscle and realigning what's left. Both of these surgeries are completed through an incision made under the chin, behind the ears, or both.
