This new procedure creates a well toned, smooth neck and lifted jaw line, takes its name from Queen Nefertiti, whose elegant bone structure continues to be admired in modern times.
The Nefertiti neck lift is a new technique achieved by placing multiple injections along the lower jaw line as well as down the side of the neck along the platysma muscles. These muscles are responsible for pulling the jawline down.
By relaxing these muscles, the definition of the jaw line can be improved by rebalancing the underlying muscles to provide ‘lifting’ in the neck and jaw area. You will notice improved tightening and overall reduction of drooping neck skin and often reduced wrinkles on the neck in as few as three to five days.
Once the treatmenthas relaxed these muscles, the net effect is an upward pull from facial muscles, creating a younger looking jaw line, neck and face for a lasting result that won't "let you down". The treatment needs to be repeated several times per year as with most other injectable treatments.
When we are young, the elevator muscles are more active but as we get older the depressor muscles / platysma muscles become more active which pull the jawline down. If we keep these muscles relaxed with regular Botulinum injections, then the jowling effect of the jawline can be prevented over time.
For older women, injections along the jawline counteract the downward pull of the platysma neck bands and there is a noticeable lift of the jaw line. Once the treatment has kicked in, the patient can return for a skin tightening procedure such as Titan which permanently shrinks the skin along the jawline and neck and stimulates more collagen in the treated area.
The cost of the procedure depends on the amount to be injected. The average cost is from R1600 and takes 5 minutes to do. It is truly a no downtime, lunchtime procedure.
