Welcome to ELLEMES Medical Spa of Atlanta, GA! At ELLEMES Medical Spa, we strive to provide our clients with the most advanced treatments in aesthetic medicine. One of our favorite treatments is Botox. Today we’re going to talk about how Botox can be used for platysma muscle bands. At ELLEMES, we believe that a well-informed patient is a happy patient. So let’s dive in and take a look at Botox and the platysma muscle.

What is Botox?

Botox is a popular injectable treatment used to reduce the appearance of wrinkles, fine lines, and skin imperfections. It works by temporarily paralyzing the underlying facial muscles, which relaxes the skin, reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines. Botox injections have been used safely and effectively for more than 20 years and are FDA approved.

What are Platysma Muscle Bands?

Platysma muscle bands are vertical bands on the neck caused by the contraction of the platysma muscle. This muscle is located on both sides of the neck and connects the jaw and shoulder. Over time, the platysma muscle can become overactive, resulting in visible bands on the neck. These bands are typically caused by stress and can affect both men and women.

Can Botox be Used for Platysma Muscle Bands?

Yes! Botox can be used to treat platysma muscle bands. Botox injections relax the platysma muscle, which in turn reduces the appearance of the bands on the neck. Many of our clients at ELLEMES Medical Spa have seen great results with Botox injections for their platysma muscle bands.

What to Expect During a Botox Treatment for Platysma Muscle Bands?

At ELLEMES Medical Spa, we use the most advanced techniques to ensure our clients have the best experience possible. During a Botox treatment for platysma muscle bands, our certified injector will start by cleaning the area to be treated with an alcohol-based cleanser. Next, a very fine needle will be used to inject the Botox into the targeted platysma muscle. The entire procedure only takes a few minutes and there is no downtime.

How Long Does Botox Last for Platysma Muscle Bands?

The effects of Botox will typically last for three to four months. However, results may vary depending on the individual. After the initial results wear off, you can come back for a touch-up treatment. At ELLEMES Medical Spa, we recommend our clients come in for a touch-up treatment every three to four months for optimal results.


At ELLEMES Medical Spa of Atlanta, GA, we believe Botox is one of the best treatments for platysma muscle bands. Botox injections relax the platysma muscle, which in turn reduces the appearance of the bands on the neck. The procedure is fast and easy, and the results will last up to four months. If you are looking for a safe and effective treatment for your platysma muscle bands, Botox may be right for you. Contact us today to schedule your consultation!
