The Nefertiti Lift achieves a more defined looking jawline and tightens the skin on the neck. It uses advanced techniques injecting muscle relaxants into lower face and neck, creating a jaw lift and neck lift without surgery. The treatment was developed by Dr Phillip Levy in France to provide a lifting around the jaw area. It is useful for a percentage of women and men. However, your facial and neck muscle need to be assessed carefully to see if the treatment will be sufficient for you.
There are other treatments which can help achieve a non-surgical jaw and neck lift or treat lower face sagging. These can lessen the appearance of jowls, help lift chin, fill marionette lines but assessment of your suitability for each is vital. Sometimes surgery is the recommended approach. At SkinRevision our Doctors provide obligation free evaluation and offer an honest opinion on what will and will not help. Call us at 3350 5447 or email any queries.
How Does The Nefertiti Lift Work?
The Nefertiti lift works by relaxing muscles in the jaw, and neck jaw which contributes to a downward pull along the jawline. Once these muscles are relaxed the net effect is an upward pull from facial muscles, creating a neck and jaw lift.
The two main muscles that pull the face down around the jawline are the Platysma muscles of the neck and a smaller muscle called the Depressor Anguli Oris (D.A.O).
What Creates the Nefertiti Neck Lift?
The Platysma muscles come from the face, across the jawline and into the neck. When you clench and project your jaw forward, you see vertical bands running down your throat. These are called the platysmal bands, and these have a net effect of dragging the skin of the jaw and neck down.
The Nefertiti neck lift involves injecting these muscles with a muscle relaxant. Over the next week, these muscles relax and can no longer exert the downward pull, so other muscles which work as elevators can work unopposed, giving a lift to the neck, jawline, jowls and even face.
Nefertiti Lift For Jowls
The second muscle the Depressor Anguli Oris (D.A.O) attaches from the corners of the mouth to the jaw and is responsible for turning the corners of the mouth down. The D.A.O is commonly injected at the same time as the platysmal bands when a Nefertiti lift is performed. However, it is not strictly part of the Nefertiti lift described by Dr Levy. Relaxing this muscle in combination with the platysmal bands adds to the lifting effect, adding increased definition especially a lift for the jowl area.
Nefertiti Lift Cost
The cost of a Nefertiti lift is exceptionally variable, reliant on how much muscle strength and movement there is pulling the neck and face skin down.
