The Nefertiti neck lift is a popular non-surgical procedure that redefines the neck and the lines of the jaw to bring out a youthful, elegant appearance without surgery. Having a well-defined jawline with a swan-like neck has been a symbol of beauty since the ancient Egyptian times. Taken its name from Nefertiti, queen of Egypt, who was popular for her sophisticated bone structure, the Nefertiti neck lift creates a well-contoured, lifted and smooth neck and jaw line.
How is the Nefertiti Neck Lift Done?
Nefertiti neck lift is done through the application of dermal fillers and Wrinkle reduction treatment to tighten the loose skin and ‘turkey neck’ appearance around the jaw line and neck. It also remove jowling by filling up the lost volume on the area.
Aging around the neck and jaw line are the primary reasons why some women appear older than their actual age and through this procedure, we can effectively tighten the skin, replace the volume lost in the area and give the appearance of a non-surgical face lift.
By administering Wrinkle reduction treatment around the neck and jawline into the thin muscle called Platysma, the muscle will be relaxed. In this way, the muscles on the upper part of the face become stronger, causing an upward pulling action. This creates a non-surgical lift. This procedure is quick and only takes 4 to 5 minutes.
In addition, the skin around the jawline sags and droops, because of the loss of natural facial volume due to age and gravity. When the fat pads around the jawline disappears, the skin flattens like a deflating balloon. Together with gravity, the skin sags and hangs down, creating that ‘jowling look’. By administering hyaluronic acid dermal fillers like Perlane and Restylane, we ‘inflate’ back the balloon and through the help of Wrinkle reduction treatment , it can rejuvenate that area beautifully.
How often does the treatment be done?
When the Wrinkle reduction treatment has relaxed the platysma muscles, the effect is an upward pull from the facial muscles, which creates a natural looking, youthful jaw line, face and neck. The treatment has to be repeated a number of times a year, together with other injectable treatment.
How does the Nefertiti Neck Lift prevent aging?
When we’re still young, our elevator muscles are still active, but as we get older, the platysma muscles or depressor muscles are become more active, causing a pulling down effect of the jawline. Keeping these relaxed muscles with regular administration of Wrinkle reduction treatment can prevent the jowling effect of the neck and the jawline.
The neck itself also loose volume and sag, taking on the look of a ‘turkey neck’. Older women also develop wrinkles on the neck, which is called the necklace lines. Through regular Wrinkle reduction treatment to the platysma muscles in the neck, the neck tightens and these necklace lines disappear.
