VIP Nefertiti Neck Lift

Nefertiti Neck Lift is named after the Egyptian Queen, Nefertiti, known for her infamous limestone bust, showcasing her elongated neck, high cheekbones, and flawless features.

What is Nefertiti Neck Lift?

Nefertiti Neck Lift is a non-surgical neck lift using Botox Cosmetic. Botox relaxes the neck muscle bands (Platysma) to release and allow the upper facial muscles to pull upwards without resistance, thus making the jawline appear tighter and sharper. It can help reverse the signs of aging by defining your face, jaw, and neck.

How does it work?

Nefertiti Neck Lift is performed by injecting Botox into the platysma muscle along the jawline and upper neck. Results take effect within a few days up to two weeks post-treatment and typically last 3-4 months (usual Botox injections duration). Follow-up Botox injections are required every 3-4 months to maintain these results. There is no downtime to this procedure. Only avoid exercising for 24 hours after your treatment, and avoid massaging the treatment area.  

Can Nefertiti Neck Lift be combined with other treatments?

Nefertiti Neck Lift can be combined with other treatments like Chin Augmentation, Jawline Enhancement, and Kybella (submental fat-double chin).

Am I a good candidate?

Nefertiti Neck Lift is not for every patient. Best candidates with minimal skin laxity in their neck and jawline and lack significant neck fullness will have the most effective results. For other candidates, combination treatments may be required to achieve the Nefertiti look.

Please contact our office for a complimentary consultation to see if this is the best treatment for you.

What are Neck Bands, and why do some people have them more prominent than others?

Neck bands are caused by platysma muscle contractions, the most superficial muscle layer in the face and neck. While neck bands can occur for a variety of reasons, they generally become more apparent as a natural part of aging; genetics and lifestyle can play a role as well. Genetics has a saying in the appearance of neck bands, as they become visible sooner in people with thin skin. Other lifestyle factors, like dramatic weight loss, may accelerate the appearance of platysmal bands as the body suddenly loses its fat deposits, including the ones that kept the vertical neck bands hidden. 

Can Botox be used for neck bands and to tighten the neck?

YES! Botox injections can be used to relax over-prominent neck bands to obtain a smoother, more youthful neck appearance. Botox injections relax the platysma muscle, reducing the appearance of vertical bands and contributing to skin tightening.

How many units of Botox are needed for neck bands?

The amount can vary depending on the patient’s anatomy. In general, 40-100 total units of botulinum toxin are used for effective treatment.

How long does Botox in neck bands last?

When injected into the vertical bands of the neck, Botox can relax the dynamic muscles, making them less prominent and resulting in a smoother, younger-looking neck. The results can generally last 3-4 months. The procedure, as with any Botox treatment, can be repeated when the results wear off.
