Platysmal Bands at Skin Medical

Understanding and Treating Platysmal Bands

What are Platysmal Bands?

Platysmal bands are vertical lines that run from the chin to the collarbone, becoming more noticeable as we age due to the loss of skin elasticity and muscle tone. These bands can lead to a ‘turkey neck’ appearance.

There are a number of different treatment options when accessing Platysmal bands. These include but are not limited to the following. In order to understand what is right for you, speak to the team at Skin Medical.


Botox Injections & Ultherapy

Botox (Botulinum Toxin) works by relaxing the platysma muscle, softening the bands, and smoothing the neck’s appearance. This quick procedure involves minimal discomfort, with results lasting 3-6 months. Regular maintenance treatments are needed to sustain the effect.

Ultherapy (Ultrasound Therapy) uses ultrasound energy to penetrate deep into the skin, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. This non-invasive treatment offers gradual, natural-looking results with minimal downtime. Multiple sessions may be necessary for optimal results.


Radiofrequency (RF) & Laser Treatments

RF energy heats the skin’s deeper layers, stimulating collagen production and tightening the skin. This non-invasive method improves skin texture and firmness with minimal downtime, although several sessions are often required.

Laser therapy targets the skin to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter and smoother skin. This non-invasive treatment may need multiple sessions, and results can vary depending on the specific laser used.

Microneedling with Radiofrequency & Topical Treatments and Skincare

This treatment combines microneedling with RF energy to promote collagen production and tighten the skin. It is minimally invasive, improves skin texture and firmness, and allows for a relatively quick recovery. Multiple sessions may be required, and some discomfort can occur during the procedure.

Using skincare products with retinoids, peptides, and other active ingredients can improve skin texture and elasticity over time. Consistent use as part of a daily routine can help maintain skin health.
