Neck Cords

Treatments to soften neck bands


Neck Cords

Neck cords or also referred to as neck bands, are the vertical neck muscles, known as platysma, which are mainly prominent when clenching the teeth, clenching neck muscles, and pulling the jowls downwards. They have a stringy or rope-like appearance. As we age, the muscle loosens allowing the front edge of the muscle on either side to start hanging down creating neck bands.

When they become visible even when not clenching, some people feel it makes them appear older. In the past, the only solution to softening and retracting these muscles was through surgery.

Now we have a simple, quick, safe and painless way with neuromodulators. Injecting into these neck bands can relax the bands enough that they will relax and lie down, rather than protrude outward.

Most common causes neck bands include:

  • Genetics
  • Sun exposure
  • Years of improper skincare routine
  • Weight loss
  • Clenching your teeth, stress, and anxiety 


How to Get Rid of Neck Bands?

For some people, Platysma bands (neck cords) can be a source of anxiety. Good news, you have non-surgical options to treat neck bands with minimal downtime that can relax neck muscles. For example, a neck lift with Platysmaplasty tightens neck muscles through an incision under the chin.


Treatments for Neck Cords

At Anti-Aging Medical & Laser Clinic, we offer non-surgical treatments to soften neck cords. We can also combine treatments for longer lasting results.


Neuromodulators are injected directly into the neck cords muscle which relax the area and soften the neck bands, lines, and wrinkles.
