True to its namesake, Nefertiti Lift defines jawlines fit for a queen. As we age, the skin begins to lose its natural suppleness and plumpness, which causes muscles under the jaw to pull down the cheeks, losing jawline definition. Anti-wrinkle treatments such as Botox can be used to lift the neck and bring back the definition when applied along the lower jawline, decreasing the downward-pull of the cheek by muscles under the jaw. As the ‘downward-pulling’ muscles are relaxed, the ‘upward-pulling’ facial muscles hold the cheek up without resistance. When the lines of the jaw and neck are toned and defined, it gives the face an unparalleled quality of youthfulness and refinement.
How many treatments will I need?
Most people have one initial treatment and return for a further treatment (usually every few months) once the facial muscles have regained their strength.
When will I see improvements?
Everyone reacts differently. Some people can see improvements after a couple of days, while others may not see the full effect for a couple of weeks.
How long will it last?
The effect should last for between three and six months, after which your muscles will regain their strength. You can, of course, return for regular treatments.
Is the procedure painful?
Discomfort is usually minimal and brief. Prior to injection, your doctor may choose to numb (anesthetize) the treatment area with a cold pack or anesthetic cream to further minimize discomfort.
What is the recovery time following a treatment?
Following the treatment, you may experience some slight redness around the treatment area but most patients are in and out of the physician’s office with minimal or no downtime. Usually, you may return to your daily routine immediately.
What are the possible side effects and unwanted risks?
Most side effects are mild or moderate in nature, and their duration is short lasting (7 days or less). The most common side effects include, temporary skin reactions such as localized pain, tenderness, swelling, redness, or bleeding/bruising at the injection site.
