Thank you for your question. Consult a board certified plastic surgeon regarding dermal fillers. There are various techniques that can be used for what your describing with fillers. Botox can assist with lifting the corners of your mouth.
If the chin is the area that bothers you it looks like your photo that you would benefit from filler such as Juvederm placed into the chin. Botox will not lift your chin but can be used in the neck to tighten the bands or wrinkles there. A filler will more likely give you the added volume and lift that you are looking for.
Botox would not be effective for the "saggy" skin under your chin. Botox is helpful for lines that develop from muscle contraction not loose, saggy skin. The skin under your chin may be treated with radiofrequency devices, certain lasers, and the Ultherapy ultrasound device. If there is significant laxity of the skin, surgery may be required. Please consult a board certified dermatologist or plastic surgeon for consultation. Best wishes.
Botox can be very effective for the isolated bands caused by the platysma muscle, but it will not reduce the fatty tissue or lift the lax skin.
I have been using a minimal invasive RadioFrequency temperature controlled method called ThemiTight that has given some very nice volume reduction and lift/tightening to the skin without big incisions.
Botox will not lift the neck. I do use it on the neck for platysma bands that can be bothersome in a patient that otherwise is not a candidate for does not want to have a necklift.
I do not believe so. Bt ONLY IN PERSON consultations allow to fully understand what you are looking for....
Botox is a
neurotoxin.That means that it will stop
muscle function.If your problem is from
hyperfunction of a muscle, such as the lines between the eyebrows or lateral to
the eyes, then Botox is quite useful.In
the neck, the only thing that Botox can reduce is hyperfunction of the platysma
muscle, or, perhaps, some other abnormal muscle function.What you describe is not something that Botox
could address.The most common thing
that gives you the problem seen in your pictures is excess fat.This is easily treatable with liposuction,
unless this fat is beneath the muscles.If
this is the case, then open surgical resection is the only option.Occasionally, this can be due to a prominent
muscle which is normal or descended salivary glands.Although these can be treated, it is more
difficult.You need to see someone
experienced in dealing with the neck with both surgical means and liposuction.
Hello Wendi. Botox can sometimes be a good treatment for people who have thick neck bands from enlargement of the neck muscles, however that is not the case with you and I don't recommend Botox treatment to lift your sagging chin. If you are not opposed to surgery, then that would be the best option for you. However, if you would like a less invasive, non-surgical option then you should consider Ultherapy. Ultherapy is the only FDA approved non-surgical treatment to lift, tighten, and tone the skin of the face, neck, and chest. Hope this helps.
Botox has been used to reduce the effects of platysmal banding but is most often used to reduce wrinkles in the upper third of the face. Laser lipo might help but, surgery is generally the best treatment
Hi Wendi. Botox is used in the area around the eyes and forehead. It is a product that relaxes muscle movement to smooth out wrinkles. It does not work at removing fat or lifting loose skin in the neck.
You would either need a surgical neck lift or possibly a skin tightening treatment (Thermage, Titan, Ulthera). We prefer surgery as the effects of the skin tightening procedures typically reverse themselves after about 6 months. So, unless you want to do skin tightening every 6 months, your best bet is a lower face and neck lift. Good luck.
