Neck Botox Is Becoming More Popular

Botox helps smooth out unwanted wrinkles and lines on your face.

Now it is also being used to treat those pesky wrinkles on the neck.

42-year-old Claudia Fulop is a patient care coordinator for a dermatologist.

One of the perks of job is access to skin care procedures.

So she is going to wipe away lines on her neck with botox.

Dr. Jeffrey Dover, Dermatologist said, "The way it works is it relaxes the muscle so instead of it doing this all the time it rewraps the muscle so that it hangs like a curtain that's being pulled straight as opposed to a curtain that's all bunched up."

A few injections and in a matter of minutes, the procedure is done.

The best candidates for neck botox are women between 40 and 70.

Side effects are rare, but include bruising and trouble swallowing, which both are temporary.

The botox is not cheap, it will run you about $900 and last for 3 to 4 months.
