Nefertiti Neck Lift

The Nefertiti Neck Lift at Dermal Health offers a non-surgical solution to achieve a more defined jawline and smoother neck. It’s an ideal treatment for patients seeking quicker-acting, long-lasting results without significant downtime.

The Nefertiti neck lift treatment uses botulinum type A injections to relax the platysma muscles in your neck, creating a lifting effect that enhances the jawline and smooths the neck.

What is a Nefertiti Neck Lift?

The Nefertiti Neck Lift is an aesthetic procedure that uses Botox®* or similar injections to relax the platysma muscles in your neck. These muscles can create a downward pull on the jawline, leading to sagging skin and prominent neckbands. The relaxing of these muscles lifts the jawline and smooths the neck, providing more of a contoured appearance. Another term for this is a non-surgical neck lift.

About the Platysma Muscles:

These are a pair of superficial muscles located on each side of the neck. These muscles extend from the upper chest to the lower face. They are responsible for the movement of the neck skin and the lower jaw. Over time, the platysma muscles can become tense and contracted, contributing to the appearance of neck bands and a sagging jawline. Some patients see these as signs of ageing.

Queen Nefertiti

In case you were wondering, the Nefertiti Neck Lift is named after the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti who was renowned for her sharp jawline and smooth neck. Her famous bust that led to her becoming an icon currently resides in the Neues Museum in Berlin. The features that this bust possess have long been associated with beauty and youthfulness, hence the fitting name for a treatment aimed at enhancing these areas.

Benefits of the Nefertiti Lift

  • Immediate Results Noticeable improvement right after treatment.
  • Non-surgical  Minimally invasive with little to no downtime.
  • Long-Lasting Effects can last several months with proper care.
  • Safe and Effective treatment Backed by years of clinical use and studies.

How Does the Nefertiti Neck Lift Work?

Botox® is carefully injected into specific points in the neck to relax the platysma muscles. This relaxation allows the muscles to lengthen, lifting the jawline and smoothing the neck’s appearance.

The facial muscles receive lesser resistance from the lower neck muscles to facilitate the smoothing effect. The procedure is quick, typically taking around 30 minutes. It involves minimal patient discomfort.

Additional Information About This Procedure

Procedure Specifics

Injection Points: Botox® is injected into specific points along the platysma muscle and sometimes the sternocleidomastoid muscle to achieve the lifting effect. This precise targeting helps to relax the muscles that pull down the jawline, allowing the muscles above to lift the skin and tissues.

Combination Treatments: This neck smoothing treatment can be combined with other treatments such as injections into the DAO (Depressor Anguli Oris) and masseter muscles. This can help lift the corners of the mouth and slim the jawline, providing a more comprehensive facial rejuvenation.

Pre- and Post-Treatment Care

Pre-Treatment: Patients are advised to avoid alcohol and blood-thinning medications for 24 hours before the treatment. It is also important to ensure that you are not pregnant or nursing before undergoing the procedure.

Post-Treatment: After the treatment, patients should avoid smoking, exercise, and massage to the treated area for 24-48 hours. Makeup should also be avoided for 24 hours for optimal results and to reduce the risk of infection complications.
