The Egyptian queen Nefertiti is universally recognized as an icon of beauty, due in part to her elegant and defined jawline. It’s appropriate that the aesthetic technique named after her — the Nefertiti Lift — uses BOTOX® Cosmetic to improve jaw definition.
If you are unsatisfied with the appearance of your jaw and want to learn more about this BOTOX® technique, please call us at 786-618-5039. At Miami Skin & Vein, we skillfully provide effective treatments to those who live in the Miami, Coral Gables, Miami Beach, and Fort Lauderdale areas of Florida.
Benefits of the Nefertiti Lift
The vertical muscles that run from the base of your neck to your jaw, known as the platysma bands, continuously pull down on your lower face. Eventually, this leads to drooping skin and a loss of jawline definition. A Nefertiti Lift can prevent these muscles from pulling down, and return a contoured appearance to your jawline.
The benefits of the Nefertiti Lift include:
- Improved jawline definition
- Improved appearance of prominent neck bands
- Short treatment time
- An effective alternative to surgical procedures
Am I a Candidate?
This treatment is ideal for patients whose downward-pulling neck bands are disrupting the contour of their lower face. You are likely a great candidate if you are looking for a minimally invasive procedure that can restore definition to your jawline.
Ideal candidates for the Nefertiti Lift are:
- At least 18 years old
- Not pregnant or nursing at the time of treatment
- Free of any known allergies to BOTOX®
During your consultation, Dr. Shaun Patel will discuss your goals, cosmetic concerns, and relevant medical history to establish your candidacy.
The Nefertiti Lift Treatment
The Nefertiti Lift is a nonsurgical treatment that uses BOTOX®. Dr. Patel will administer BOTOX® along your jawline and platysma bands. This causes the muscles that constantly pull the face downwards to relax.
When your neck bands are no longer pulling your features down, the muscles on the upper face can properly lift the skin. The result is a defined jawline that the Egyptian queen herself would envy.
The entire process takes only a few minutes. There is no downtime, and you can expect to carry on with your day as usual.
Maintaining Your Lift Results
Dr. Patel may give you some simple instructions to ensure the effectiveness of the injections. For several hours after the procedure, you may be advised to avoid rubbing your chin and neck, performing any strenuous activities, and laying down.
The results last differently from person to person, and Dr. Patel may be able to give you an individualized estimate of what to expect. Follow up injections at Miami Skin and Vein can allow you to maintain a defined appearance. Dr. Patel can work with you and your goals to establish an ongoing treatment plan.
