The Nefertiti Lift borrows its name from an Egyptian queen famously known for her beauty — her perfect jawline, her taught neck, and her ideal facial proportions. The “3-minute neck lift” named in her honor gives our patients that tight and chiseled yet finely feminine jawline and a smooth, more youthful neck. This minimally-invasive and nonsurgical procedure employs a series of tiny injections of Botox, Juvederm or Dysport into the group of muscles that cause the not-so-subtle yet stubborn signs of aging along the jawline and upper neck.
The procedure itself takes no more than about 15 minutes, during which time a qualified doctor or aesthetician will place a series of 6 or 8 well-targeted injections into either side of the jawline. When the procedure is done and the injectable has had 5 to 7 days to take hold, the result will present much like a mini neck lift has been done, and will positively enhance the upper neck and jawline while contouring the chin and the corners of the mouth.
The Nefertiti Lift is best suited for persons between ages 35 and 55 who seek an improved definition of their jawline and upper neck and who do not have too much excess fat in this area. The Nefertiti Lift aims to tackle the “turkey neck” or “chicken feet” beneath the jawline, caused in large part by the platysma muscles pulling the neck along a downward vector. These muscles can form thick visible lines, end up looking like tight strings in the neck, and loose skin can build up over them as we age. Step in front of a mirror and express these muscles by dramatically vocalizing the letter “E.” If you see that it forms bands of stringy muscle, you’re very likely a candidate for a Nefertiti Lift.
Because the Nefertiti Lift is minimally invasive and nonsurgical, it requires little to no at-home recovery time. Following the procedure, you can return to home or work and resume your normal activities. You will be advised to refrain from exercising for the day and to refrain from massaging or disturbing the injection sights for 24 to 48 hours. On the same day or the day following, one can return to their normal daily routine. Complications are rare but uncommon side effects are minor bruising and swelling.
