Platysmal bands are two vertical bands of muscle situated on both sides of our neck. Commonly referred to as "turkey neck" the platysmal bands are the result of platysma contractions. They can also be a result of clenching teeth or stress, or even high-intensity workouts. Repetitive high-intensity movement and increased muscle activity cause the platysma muscles to come forward and become more visible.

Botox is a neurotoxin that can be used to relax the platysma muscles and reduce the appearance of platysmal bands. Botox injections are performed at a Next Health storefront and are relatively quick and easy. The results of treatment typically last for 3-6 months, and the procedure can be repeated as needed.
