NECK REJUVENATION TREATMENT BY DR. ZUCKERMAN IN NEW YORK CITY


The neck tends to show aging in three particular ways due to gravity, sun damage, and genetics. First, the platysmal muscles in the neck may sag and form vertical bands, also known informally as turkey neck. Dr. Zuckerman can address these bands by injecting Botox® Cosmetic in targeted areas. Not everyone will develop these bands as they age, and there seems to be a genetic component to their formation. However, Botox® injections will make a significant impact in “softening” their appearance. Second, horizontal lines and wrinkles in the neck may form over time. Dr. Zuckerman can also address these by injecting Botox® Cosmetic in a second pattern. Third, fat may accumulate under the chin softening the jawline. Dr. Zuckerman can address this issue by injecting a relatively new FDA-approved injectable Kybella®. On this page, we will discuss the first two antiaging treatments, and information regarding the treatment of submental, or under the chin, fat can be found on the Submental (Under the Chin) Fat Treatment page.

Neck Rejuvenation In Detail

Below Dr. Zuckerman outlines several key aspects of Neck Rejuvenation including procedure time, preparation, cost, and more.

Recommended Treatment Regimen

Most patients require three to four treatments per year to maintain a continual effect.

Longevity

Treatment takes one week to set in and can last three to four months.

Treatment Time

10 – 20 minutes per treatment

Pretreatment Guidelines

Dr. Zuckerman recommends patients take the following precautions before undergoing neck rejuvenation to minimize bruising: no NSAIDs such aspirin or ibuprofen within a couple days before a day after, don’t drink alcohol to excess a day before and a day before, refraining from lying flat or working out within 2 hours after injection.

Approximate Cost

$150 – $400





Neck Rejuvenation Recovery, Difficulty, & Risks

See below for an estimate of how long your treatment result may last, recovery time if any, cost range, and more.

Downtime / Recovery

This treatment involves little to no downtime, and patients often return to work immediately after treatment. There may be slight bleeding or redness at the injection sites, but these will resolve within a few hours.

Required Level of Skill

Medium: while Botox® injections are relatively commonplace, there are delicate structures in the neck to be avoided, and this usage is a somewhat advanced technique. Visit Dr. Zuckerman, a board-certified plastic surgeon and an expert injector, to ensure that your treatment gives you a great result.

Level of Discomfort

None to low: Dr. Zuckerman applies a topical anesthetic (numbing cream) before treatment to eliminate patient discomfort.

Associated Risks

Botox® Cosmetic injections to the neck are overwhelmingly safe in the hands of an experienced injector who is aware of the anatomical structures of the neck. As a board-certified plastic surgeon, Dr. Zuckerman is an expert in both surgical and non-surgical techniques in the area, so you can be sure you are in great hands for this treatment.
