Queen Nefertiti, one of Egypt’s most famous queens, is an epitome of beauty and grace to this day. The queen owed her beauty to her well defined and sharp jawline. This inspired the cosmetologists from over the world to come up with an aesthetic technique called the Nefertiti Lift for redefining your jaw.
With all the changes in the body, nobody wants to leave their youthful phase. But against all such desires, the signs of aging hit the human body, and before you know it, your skin gets saggy and loses its structure. While people get a lot of work done on their face, they often ignore their necks and jaws. This mismatch gives an unnatural looking appearance, which gives away the secret of your facial work. Therefore, equal work on your jaw and neck gives a complete and more elegant looking appearance – making you look younger than you are.
Nefertiti Lift Treatment- What is it?
With the gradual accumulation of wrinkles and creases, along with the saggy and loose skin under the jaw, we tend to look older. Over time, the neck muscles, also known as the platysma, tend to pull down on the skin of our lower jaw and face. This gives an ageing appearance to our otherwise youthful body.
The skin around the neck is thin and delicate. Therefore, treating this area is a tricky task. If properly done, the procedure of Nefertiti Lift redefines the jaw and softens the neck lines. This gives a rejuvenating and younger-looking skin, without any kind of surgery involved. The Nefertiti Lift technique involves a series of Botulinum Toxin injections, more commonly called Botox, that are administered along the lower jaw line and the neck area muscles, with high precision. Botox is an inject-able muscle relaxer that is perfect for treating the sagging and wrinkly skin of the neck. It lengthens and relaxes the platysmal bands in the neck, thus providing an uplifting effect to the area, resulting in a tighter skin.

Possible side effects of Nefertiti Lift
Improper treatment or excessive use of botulinum toxin can cause a few side effects:
- Bruising or redness at the injection site
- Swelling of the treated area
- Difficulty swallowing
- Weakness in your neck
- Flu-like symptoms
These symptoms are temporary and disappear gradually over the recovery period.
Nefertiti Lift - Expected Cost and Time Range
Nefertiti Lift treatments cost in the range of $440 to $880 and the results typically last for a period of 3 to 6 months, depending on the patient’s age. However, this process can be repeated, and since it costs just a fraction of a surgical treatment, it is actually economically more feasible.
