The Nefertiti Lift
This treatment name refers to the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, known for her beauty and particularly elongated smooth neck.
With aging, loss of subcutaneous fat and muscle tone around the neck/jawline results in sagging skin and gives the appearance of a “Turkey Neck”. When the platysma neck muscles are contracted, this creates vertical bands and loose skin which can become more prominent over time.
Toxin treatment can be injected along the visible neckbands and beneath the jawline. This results in softening the appearance of the platysmal bands and has a slight 'lifting-effect' on the jawline. This is often referred to as a subtle nonsurgical neck lift.
NB: This treatment is not suitable for those with excessive skin laxity or localised fat in the neck.
