The Nefertiti Neck Lift: A Nonsurgical Approach with Neurotoxins to Tighten the Neck and Jawline

In the realm of medical aesthetics, advancements are continually pushing the boundaries of what's possible non-surgically, offering innovative solutions to address age-related concerns with less risk and downtime. Among these breakthroughs stands the Nefertiti Neck Lift, which utilizes neurotoxins on the platysma muscles of the neck to tighten the appearance of the neck and jawline.

Named after the ancient Egyptian queen known for her graceful and elongated neck, the Nefertiti Neck Lift represents a modern approach to achieving a defined and youthful neck contour. Unlike traditional surgical interventions, this procedure is quick and minimally invasive, simply using small insulin needles to administer neurotoxins such as Jeuveau, Botox, Xeomin, or Dysport into the platysmal muscles of the neck.

How does it work? 

The neurotoxins are strategically administered into the platysmal muscle, which is a thin, sheet-like muscle located in the neck. The platysma is responsible for various movements of the neck and lower face, including pulling the jaw downward and creating vertical bands in the neck as it contracts. By selectively relaxing the platysmal muscle, the neurotoxin effectively reduces its activity, allowing the opposing muscles to exert greater control over neck positioning. This tightens the appearance of the neck by strategically targeting the underlying muscles responsible for the appearance of neck bands and sagging skin, temporarily relaxing these muscles and allowing the surrounding tissues to lift and tighten naturally. The result? A more refined jawline, and improved definition that lasts about three to four months on average.

With the Nefertiti Neck Lift, the goal is to rebalance the dynamic interplay between the platysmal muscle and its surrounding muscles, such as the sternocleidomastoid and jaw muscles. By weakening the platysmal muscle's downward pull on the jawline, the neurotoxin promotes a lifting effect on the neck and jawline area. This creates a more defined and youthful contour without the need for invasive surgery.

What to expect and downtime: 

One of the key advantages of the Nefertiti Neck Lift lies in its minimally invasive nature. This non-surgical alternative offers a swift and virtually painless experience. Patients can typically resume their daily activities immediately following the procedure, making it an ideal option for those with busy lifestyles. As with any cosmetic procedure, proper aftercare is essential to maximizing results and minimizing potential side effects. Patients may be advised to avoid strenuous activities and excessive neck movements immediately following treatment, as well as refrain from exercise for 8 hours post-injections. Additionally, follow-up appointments are typically scheduled at the two-week mark to assess results and make any necessary adjustments for optimal results.

Average Cost and Duration:

Prior to treatment, we recommend a consultation with one of our PRISM providers to assess your treatment goals, and medical history, and determine if you are a good candidate for this procedure. In this consultation, we can determine how many units would be needed to achieve optimal results. How many units are needed depends on how many platysmal bands pull on your neck and how strong these bands are. On average, we use about 30-60 units of tox to achieve optimal results, but this varies from patient to patient. Again, the best way to determine cost and if you are a good candidate would be to schedule a consultation with one of our providers.

In conclusion, the Nefertiti Neck Lift offers a safe, effective, and minimally invasive solution for neck rejuvenation. With its ability to redefine the contours of the neck and jawline without the need for surgery, this procedure has captured the attention of patients seeking natural-looking enhancements with minimal downtime. To discover if the Nefertiti Neck Lift is right for you, book a consult with one of our medical professionals at PRISM Aesthetics who can guide you on your journey to a more youthful and confident appearance.
