Platysma Muscle

Summary Information: Platysma Muscle

Platysma Muscle: The platysmal muscle is a type of skeletal muscle and is involved in making facial expressions. It is located in neck and lower jaw and is attached to the clavicle in the lower neck and to the jaw bone, called the mandible. The cervical branch of the facial nerve stimulates the platysmal muscle to contract, which pulls the corners of the mouth down and can pull the skin of the neck up. Branches of the submental and suprascapular arteries supply blood to the platysmal muscle.
