Swan neck from Botox - plus shoulder relief!
If you are bothered by the appearance of bulky shoulders, or have tension in the shoulders, this treatment is worth a closer look!
The trapezius muscle begins at the base of your head and extends down your neck, to the middle of your back and all the way to your shoulders. An overworked trapezius muscle not only houses stress, but creates the visual effect of bulkier shoulders and additionally, a wider, shorter neck.
Poor posture, spine misalignment, certain exercises and even sleeping positions can contribute to the strain within this sizable muscle. Botulinum toxin (Such as Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport) can strategically be injected to treat an enlarged trapezius to both slim and relax the muscle. The treatment is quick, lasting just a few moments after your provider has assessed the area for trigger points.
Therapeutically, this results in alleviated pain and tension.
Cosmetically, a slimmer silhouette of the contours of the neck and shoulders take form. It takes approximately 4-6 weeks for the slimming effect to take place and results last about 4-6 months.
We would love to schedule an in person assessment with you to determine if you are a suitable candidate for this wonderful treatment!
