About Botox Neck Lift

The Botox Neck Lift Treatment involves injecting botulinum toxin into the neck to paralyze the neck muscles temporarily. It relaxes the muscles of the neck that pull down the jawline, thereby improving the jawline and the overall appearance of sagging jowls. The effect of Jaw Contouring Treatment usually lasts for 3-6 months which the procedure needs to be repeated to maintain the slimming effect.

Frequent Questions

1)     Is there any downtime?

All botulinum treatments have minimal to no downtime. You are usually able to resume daily activities immediately after the treatment. There may be some redness and swelling immediately after the injection. You may also experience some mild soreness and muscle weakness in the neck for a few days. However, this will usually subside within a short period of time.

2)     Does it affect my daily activities?

The botulinum is injected into a small proportion of the platysma bands of the neck and D.A.O muscle of the jawline. Therefore, it does not affect nor restrict day-to-day activities. 

About Botox

Botulinum Toxin A (more commonly known as Botox) is the protein complex derived from the bacteria Clostridium Botulinum. Currently, there are quite a few types of Botulinum Toxin in use by practitioners all over the world. At Yuchi Medical, our primary choices of Botulinum Toxin are Bocouture and Botox.

Botox blocks signals from the nerves to the muscles. It interferes with the nerve stimulation of the muscles causing excess facial expressions. This relaxes the muscles in the injected part, helping to smooth out your skin and prevent wrinkle formation.

When Botox is appropriately used by a suitable qualitied practitioner, it is safe and has few side effects.
