the woodlands botox Have you started noticing horizontal rings around your neck beginning to form? Or have these indented wrinkles, commonly referred to as necklace lines, become so deep and prominent that they are beginning to affect your confidence? If so, Botox is a noninvasive treatment that can help patients in The Woodlands regain a smoother, more youthful looking neck.

Trying to Outsmart Necklace Lines

Before some of our patients in The Woodlands are willing to acknowledge that Botox treatments are the real solution to their necklace lines, they will sometimes turn to clothing, makeup or jewelry to try to hide the unattractive wrinkles around their necks. Your closet may be full of turtlenecks, shirts, and blouses with high fitting collars or bulky scarves and thick choker-style necklaces – that are all uncomfortable and costly. Some people in The Woodlands have also tried every expensive wrinkle cream on the shelves to try to smooth away their necklace lines, and to their dismay, the wrinkling continues to get worse. The problem is that while they are trying to treat or hide their neck wrinkles on their own, the lines are still carving deeper into the skin. Beginning Botox treatment for your necklace lines as soon as possible is in your best interest.

How Necklace Lines Form

There are some ways that Botox patients in The Woodlands contribute to the formation of their ropey-looking neck wrinkles such as looking down at their phones repeatedly and for extended periods of time. Exposing your neck to too much sun, prolonged dehydration, and smoking are also extremely harmful the health of your skin, especially the skin around your neck because it is naturally thin and delicate. Botox patients in The Woodlands do not get a say so in their genetics though. Genetics play a significant role in how soon you will develop necklace lines and how prominent they will become. Eventually, all of us will develop necklace lines to some degree because as we age because our skin loses its elasticity and produces less collagen, and for women, there is a decrease in estrogen levels.

How Can Botox Help My Aging Neck?                                         

Botox is injected above and below the creases circling your neck in small amounts which relaxes the underlying muscles, making the skin on your neck look and feel smoother, firmer, and more youthful. Something that some of our patients in The Woodlands may not know about Botox is that although it may take more Botox to treat the wrinkling around your neck than facial wrinkles; the results will last longer than facial injections because there is usually less muscle movement in the neck area as opposed to the face. Botox is not a permanent wrinkle remover, but the results can be maintained for patients who are willing to return for repeat treatments as the Botox begins to subside over time, and best of all, if you are diligent – your necklace lines may be significantly diminished or be eliminated entirely.
