Botox for Neck Bands

Because neck bands are caused in part by overactive platysma muscles, you can reduce neck bands by injecting the platysma with the muscle relaxing toxin, Botox.

Between 25 and 50 units of Botox are used to treat neck bands. This means that neck band treatment with Botox can cost $500 to $1,000 or more. (assuming a price per unit of 20 dollars).

Botox injections relax the platysma muscle for three to six months. However, the platysma is an extremely delicate muscle, so it should be handled with great care. Improper placement of Botox injections can result in a swallowing disorder known as dysphagia, or voice impairment, also called dysphonia.
