The Nefertiti Lift
Jawline with Botox® Cosmetic Treatment
The ‘Nefertiti Lift’ is what we refer to when injecting Botox® Cosmetic along the jawline. We all know that Botox® Cosmetic treats dynamic wrinkles and smooths fine lines on the forehead, the frown area, and around the eyes. Over the last decades, though, the use of Botox® Cosmetic in aesthetic enhancement has evolved and its applications have dramatically increased. The ‘Nefertiti Lift’ is one of it’s newest applications.
The Nefertiti Lift is a non-surgical way to redefine the jawline and consequently rejuvenate the lower face. It’s named for Nefertiti, the Egyptian queen who was renowned for having the ideal jaw line.
How It Works
This treatment involves injecting small amounts of Botox® Cosmetic in the platysma muscles which run on either side of your neck. These muscles are visible when you pull your chin forwards and down. As we age, the platysma muscles become stronger and over time pull down on the cheeks and jowls. This results in a loss of sharpness in the lower jaw’s contouring as well as an accentuated downward turn of the corners of the mouth.
When we inject small amount of Botox® Cosmetic in these muscles, it relaxes them just enough so they no longer pull down, creating a much more defined jaw line. This provides the visual effect of a mini-face lift. Patient satisfaction is extremely high and because the amount of Botox® Cosmetic used is so small, the incidence of adverse effects is extremely low and the cost of this procedure is very reasonable, ranging from $300 to $500 per treatment.
The Nefertiti Lift is completely non-invasive, highly effective, and therefore an acceptable alternative to the right patients seeking a non-surgical option to a lower face lift.
