To achieve skin tightening and less protrusion in this area, a treatment of Muscles Relaxant Injections (also know as Anti-Wrinkle Injections) to minimise the muscle size and the amount of wrinkling is used. It is important to note that a saggy jowl can also be caused by loose skin and droopy fat pads in the face.
These platysmal bands are treated using Muscle Relaxant Injections. Can be combined with treating the jawline to improve saggy jowls, known as Nefertiti Lift. Minimal discomfort and no downtime.
Results start to show at approximately 3 – 5 days post-treatment, with full effects evident at around 2 weeks (although this can vary from patient to patient).
*Results may vary from patient to patient. **All photos are of patients from Cosmos Clinic, and all ‘after’ images are taken 6 weeks post operation.
Achieve optimal neck rejuvenation with a walk in, walk out procedure
The procedure is very simple, and there is minimal discomfort and no downtime. A series of tiny injections, are made in the necks muscles to achieve optimal neck rejuvenation. The injections contain a Muscle Relaxant that is effective in treating this problem area. Treating these vertical bands can also be combined with treating the jaw line (a procedure known as the Nefertiti Lift). This will improve the appearance of the jowls and remove any unsightly neck bands. For this treatment, we can use Dermal Fillers (made up on hyaluronic acid) to mimic a surgical jowl lift.
Muscle Relaxant Injections is a walk in, walk out procedure. You will be able to return to your normal activities straight away. It is important to mention that post the treatment, you will be left with a few common side effects. You will have tiny marks, like mosquito bites, which will last for a few minutes. Post the treatment, there is very little swelling and almost no bruising. The ice used before the treatment will also assist in constricting the blood vessels to further minimise bruising.

The skin along my jawline is quite loose. Is a Nefertiti Lift still suitable?
If the skin along your jawline and neck is too loose for muscle relaxant injections, then other options include: Vaser Face Lift, Laser Neck Lift , iGuide Neck Lift or Silhouette Soft Lift. These options can be discussed during your consultation with one of our doctors.
