The Nefertiti Lift – Cosmetic Secret Unlocked

Posted on November 3, 2022


The Nefertiti lift involves botulinum toxin, one of the most common cosmetic substances.

Named after the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, the Nefertiti lift uses Botox, which has an uplifting effect on the treated area. It helps tighten, reduce folds, and rejuvenate the muscles in your lower face, neck, and jawline.

In this article, I will talk about the treatment and its benefits.

What Is a Nefertiti Lift

A Nefertiti Lift is a type of non-surgical neck lift involving Botox (botulinum toxin). The procedure aims to relax the neck muscles and create a longer, thinner-looking neck.

Botox in London has been used in both aesthetic and medicinal therapies for many years. It is by far the most common injectable treatments in London and the world.

With a growing emphasis on treating the lower face muscle, botulinum toxin type A is increasingly utilised for rejuvenating the upper face, glabellar, and periocular areas.

Does a Nefertiti Lift Help With Jowls?

The Nefertiti lift helps relax the underlying muscles and gives a jawline lift effect

Yes. The Nefertiti lift is yet another inventive use of Botox injections to help you overcome jowls, which can prematurely age you.

The platysma muscle band in our neck shortens and tugs on the jawline as we become older. This compromises the youthful angle of our neck and might also give us a "jowly" look. That's when Nefertiti comes into place.

It works by relaxing the muscles and extending them, causing the jowls to 'draw in.' That may seem horrible, but it's not. In fact, you can hardly feel it.

How Many Units of Botulinum Toxin Injections Do You Need for a Nefertiti Lift?

About 15 to 30 units of Botox on each side is used, especially for loose jowls patients and saggy neck area patients, to soften and shrink the real width of their jaw.

These muscles, which are built up via eating, talking, and nocturnal grinding, are particularly powerful in certain people. Relaxing them just enough to narrow your face can give you a softer, more feminine appearance.

A defined jawline, smooth neck, and thin neck (looking like you have lost weight) are some of the effects of Botox, resulting in a more natural facelift.

How Long Does It Take for Nefertiti Neck Lift to Work?

The Nefertiti neck lift shows the upward pull results in a few weeks.

The complete effects of the treatment should be seen two to three weeks after treatment, with the jawline lift for a more pronounced definition.

Does Nefertiti Lift Last Long?

Keep in mind that it is just a temporary therapy that wears off over time. The Nefertiti neck lift should last for up to six months, depending on the patient.

However, the therapy can be repeated to keep the impact going. Postponing the generalised sagging of the skin keeps the skin firmer for longer.

Non-surgical Neck Lift for Male Patients

Male and female patients are no different. The Nefertiti works on any gender. Male patients undergo these types of treatments to enhance their features, tighten their facial muscles, have a more defined jawline, and lessen lines on their necks.

Operations like these work for male and female patients who want a more defined lower face area, neck, and lower jawline.

Non-surgical Neck and Jaw Area Lift

If you wish to reverse the ageing effects on your lower face, neck, and lower jawline, a Nefertiti lift helps.

A number of injections are used during this cosmetic surgery, which may be carried out in a doctor's office.

It is a process that takes a few months and may enable you to postpone or forego a facelift or other more invasive cosmetic surgery.

Is a Nefertiti Lift Effective?

One research looked at multiple previous studies on the Nefertiti lift and discovered that it is a highly successful therapy. According to one of the publications discussed in the study, 88.4 percent of participants saw an improvement in the look of their necks following the surgery.

Who’s a Good Candidate for a Nefertiti Lift?

The Nefertiti lift procedure is most successful in individuals who do not have major neck fullness (double chin) and have limited skin laxity in their neck and jawline; large fat deposits and sagging skin around the neck and jaw will likely disguise your results.

Breastfeeding and pregnant individuals cannot undergo this treatment. Individuals with certain health conditions, a family history of illness that requires surgery, and those who are taking certain medications are also not good candidates.

What’s the Procedure Like?

A Nefertiti lift treatment is a non-invasive procedure

It involves injecting tiny doses of botox type A into the muscles of your neck, especially those that run vertically from the bottom of your face to your collarbone, causing a downward pull on your jawline.

What’s the Recovery Like?

The operation has little recovery time and no downtime, and you may be able to return to work right after. Exercise should be avoided for at least a couple of hours following the injections. However, you should be able to resume all of your routine activities after 24 hours.

Potential Side Effects

The procedure has potential side effects, though always minimal
  1. Bruising or Redness on the Injected Area

The most frequent side effect of this treatment is bruising from multiple injections of Botox, in different areas of your face.

  1. Redness

This normally fades rapidly and is easily concealed with makeup. You can also get a minor headache after your therapy.

  1. Dry Mouth

Botox treatment has been shown to reduce saliva production after being injected into specific face locations, which can contribute to dry mouth.

Patients complain of a sore throat and a sickly taste in their mouths. This adverse effect has only been reported by a handful of patients and is expected to last only a few days.

Nefertiti Lift Cost

A Nefertiti lift is a cosmetic procedure that is performed at the patient's discretion

This means that your insurance will not cover it. In addition, the cost varies depending on your location and may be influenced by your doctor's experience.

A Nefertiti lift costs north of £800 because the number of units required to treat the area is around twice that of regular facial treatment.
