Necklace lines – are the horizontal lines that appear across the neck region. These deep lines can appear later in life, or they can start to manifest at a relatively young age, depending on genetics and lifestyle. These lines can make clients feel self-conscious, as it looks like necklace lines have been embedded into the delicate skin of the neck.
Neck bands, on the other hand, are vertical bands that are made when the muscles are tightened under the neck skin. If you’re particularly expressive with your neck (for example, you grimace a lot, clench your teeth or you hold tension in your neck), you might notice that you have prominent neck bands. Genetics and body size can also make neck bands more visible.
No matter how much neck cream you apply to these lines, it might feel like they never go away. Necklace lines and neckbands can make you look older before your time, so it’s important to treat these lines if you want to create or enhance a more youthful appearance.
At Dr. Sean Doherty’s practice in Concord, MA (also serving the greater metro Boston area), he has years of experience in effectively minimizing the appearance of neck bands and necklace lines. In order to treat neck bands and necklace lines, consider undergoing the following procedures:
- Necklace lines can be treated with tiny injections of Hyaluronic acid, which is available in fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane. These injections help soften the appearance of necklace lines, making your neck smoother and younger-looking.
- Necklace lines can also be treated with Lux IR, a infra red skin-tightening treatment that helps stimulate the production of collagen within the skin. This helps slowly minimize the appearance of necklace lines over time, as well as tighten and firm the neck skin.
- Neck bands require very small injections of Botox and Dysport, which are neurotoxins that help the bands relax. This treatment is known as the Nefertiti neck lift, as it helps smooth out the neck bands and creates a slender and attractive appearance.
It’s best to have these treatments administered by an expert injector like Dr. Doherty, as he has years of experience in delivering these delicate treatments. Dr. Doherty usually sees the patient two to three weeks after the initial injection to see if additional treatment is needed. It’s the ultimate answer to neck rejuvenation without requiring invasive surgery (specifically, a neck lift).
