Nefertiti Neck Lift Treatment

Reverse the signs of aging with a Non Surgical Neck Lift Procedure

Neck and Chin

A Nefertiti Lift is a non-invasive procedure wherein tiny amounts of botulinum toxin type A are injected into the muscles in your neck, specifically the ones that run vertically from the bottom of the face to your collarbone, creating a downward pull on your jawline.

 

Named after Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, one of the most famous women of the ancient world and an icon of feminine beauty, known for her elongated, thin neck. ‘Nefertiti’ means ‘a beautiful woman has arrived’ and, true to its name, this mini-lift counteracts lost elasticity and the effects of gravity to redefine the age-vulnerable neck and jawline

 

This treatment specifically targets the neck and jawline area using Botulinum Toxin for a rejuvenating and uplifting effect. 

 

The neck and jawline are often neglected in favour of facial work. However, if the neck or jawline are saggy and loose, then this can ‘give away’ the fact that treatment has been had elsewhere.

 

The neck area can be particularly tricky to treat effectively as the skin is quite delicate and thin. However, this treatment can deliver remarkable results.

 

The Nefertiti Lift is designed to redefine the jaw and also soften neck lines for a rejuvenating effect that presents smoother skin without the need for surgery.

WHO IS THIS TREATMENT FOR?

The Nefertiti Lift can be achieved with different treatment options and is used to target different issues of the lower part of the face, including:

  • lessen lines and wrinkles

  • smooth dimpled skin on the chin

  • erase or reduce folds or sagging

  • even out the symmetry of the lower face, jaw, and neck

  • remove lines on the neck

  • create a more pronounced definition of the jaw

Benefits of the Nefertiti Lift:

  • Improved jawline definition

  • Improved appearance of prominent neck bands

  • Short treatment time

  • An effective alternative to surgical procedures

HOW DOES THE CONSULTATION WORK WITH HAMPSTEAD AESTHETICS?

Before your treatment you will have a consultation with Dr Chike Emeagi to discuss your concerned areas, ideal results, side effects and to disclose any medications or medical history. 

 

After the initial consultation, Dr Chike Emeagi will be able to advise on the best treatment options for your individual case.

 

48 hours before the treatment you should avoid drinking any alcohol. On the day of the procedure, a thin, sterilized needle is used to inject the botulinum toxin into the muscle band along your lower face, jaw, and neck about a half inch apart. The toxin will then diffuse down gradually into the muscle.

 

This type of procedure will typically require multiple injections, but it only lasts around 15 minutes. If you are concerned about pain or discomfort, a topical anaesthetic or ice can numb the treatment area.

  • What are Anti-Wrinkle treatments?
    Botulinum toxin A often referred to as anti-wrinkle or muscle relaxant injections is a prescription only treatment. It works by temporarily blocking the nerve signals to the muscles. The muscle becomes relaxed, in turn reducing the appearance of the lines and wrinkles.
  • What do muscle relaxant injections consist of?
    Muscle relaxants consist of a purified version of a protein and toxin produced by a bacteria found in meat. When injected into targeted muscles, these products work by temporarily blocking nerve signals to the muscle. This controlled weakening reduces muscle movement, causing the wrinkles over the muscles to become smoother.
  • When will I see my results?
    Initial results start at day 4-5 post injection but the full optimum result typically is seen at 2 weeks. At 2 weeks we offer a review appointment.
  • How long will my results last?
    This depends on the area treated, and the individual client. Muscle relaxants usually last 3-4months, but in some cases can last as little as 8 weeks or can last up to 6 months Over time, you will notice the results of the treatment begin to fade, gradually returning your appearance to its pre-treatment state.
  • What is the difference between Muscle relaxant injections and Dermal Filler?
    Muscle relaxants are used to treat wrinkles and lines caused by repeated muscle movement, such as smile lines and forehead creases. They work by temporarily weakening the underlying muscles. Dermal fillers are used to plump up the skin by adding volume. They may be used to fill in wrinkles caused by sagging skin, to restore volume lost to the ageing process, or to enhance areas of the face such as the lips and cheeks.
  • Which areas can be treated?
    Muscle relaxants have been used successfully to treat most areas of the face, smoothing wrinkles caused by facial muscles. Common treatment areas include forehead wrinkles, frown lines, crow’s feet and horizontal lines on the forehead.
  • What is the ideal time to start?
    Many clients begin receiving injections of muscle relaxants as soon as they start seeing signs of wrinkles. Others wait until their wrinkles are more substantial before seeking treatment. There is no reason to delay seeking cosmetic injections. Many clients undergo decades of repeated treatments with no ill effects. While most clients begin seeking treatment in their early 30s or 40s, it can be performed safely on clients who are both younger and older. Some patients in their 20’s have injectable treatments to prevent wrinkles and lines from forming.
  • Is this Treatment available for men and women?
    Yes, muscle relaxant treatment works well on both men and women.
  • Are there any age restrictions?
    We do not treat anyone under the age of 18 years.
  • Can I have the treatment while pregnant?
    No, for safety reasons you cannot have this treatment if you are pregnant or breastfeeding.
  • Does this treatment hurt?
    The discomfort during this treatment is minimal. We use a very thin needle and the injection process is over in a matter of minutes. For very anxious clients a topical numbing cream can be applied if desired.
  • How long will the injecting take?
    The injection process itself is over in just a few moments. You can expect to spend half an hour or less in the clinic.
  • Can I still make facial expressions?
    One of the worries many clients express is that the injections will make it difficult for them to move their faces. While muscle relaxants do relax the muscle activity causing wrinkles, when used correctly they will not affect your ability to frown, look surprised, and make other facial movements. When overdone, muscle relaxants can have a tendency to cause a frozen appearance. This is why it is important to choose carefully when considering aesthetic treatments.
  • Will people know I have had the treatment?
    We aim to create a natural-looking enhancement to your appearance. Often, people who know you well will remark that you look healthier, well rested, or refreshed.
  • Do results vary from person to person?
    Yes, individual results can vary. The experienced practitioners at the Clinic can provide optimum results for each client through careful evaluation of their individual concerns and aesthetic goals. This enables us to provide a personalised treatment and use the right amount of product to achieve the results you desire. Choosing an established clinic with highly qualified experienced practitioners is key to achieving the best results possible.
  • Are the results permanent?
    No, the result is temporary. The results last between 3-4 months depending the facial area treated, and your body’s ability to absorb the injected toxin. It can wear off after as little as 8 weeks in some clients and it can last up to 6 months in others. Many patients undergo regular touch-up injections in order to maintain their rejuvenated appearance. If you opt not to have further treatment, the treated area will gradually return to its pre-treatment appearance.
  • Will it last longer if I have more product injected?
    With muscle relaxants it is better not to overdo it. In fact, over usage can increase side effects and lead to an unnatural looking appearance. Because most clients are unaware of how much product should be used to achieve their desired aesthetic result, it is the practitioner’s responsibility to recommend an amount of product that will create subtle yet noticeable results. You can trust the experienced practitioner at the Clinic to achieve optimal results by using the right amount of product to achieve your desired result.
  • What happens when the results wear off?
    The results of muscle relaxant injections generally last 3-4months, depending on the area treated. As its effects wear off, the skin will return to its natural, pre-treatment state. If you decide against further injections, your skin will be left in the same condition it was before treatment; it will not be any more wrinkled than it was before treatment.
  • How often will I need treatment?
    Many clients return for further treatment when they see the results of the initial treatment wearing off. For some clients top ups are sometimes necessary, as everyone is different, but are always free with us as we aim to provide sufficient levels in the first place.
  • How often can I have the treatment?
    You need to leave at least 12 weeks between one full treatment to the next. If you are exposed to the toxin too frequently your body can create antibodies to fight against the treatment resulting in anti wrinkle injections resistance where it no longer works.
  • Is the treatment reversible?
    Anti-wrinkle injections will naturally wear off over time, approximately 3-4 months.
  • Will the treatment prevent new wrinkles forming?
    In addition to smoothing existing wrinkles, muscle relaxant injections have some ability to prevent new wrinkles from forming. They can reduce the repetitive muscle movements that lead to wrinkle formation.
  • What can I expect afterwards?
    Immediately afterwards, minor side effects such as redness, swelling, and bruising are common. The treated area may also feel tender. These effects usually last 2-3 days and do not prevent clients from returning to work and other normal activities immediately after leaving the clinic. Muscle relaxants take 4 10 days for the effects to show, and often continue to improve for up to 30 days following treatment.
  • Can I have a Top up?
    Our bodies response to muscle relaxants can vary. Some of us may need more than others to achieve the desired effect. Here at the Clinic we offer a free top up service. This is offered between 2-4 weeks following your treatment Should you feel you require it. Unfortunately a top up after 4 weeks would not be appropriate.
  • Are muscle relaxants right for me?
    Muscle relaxants may be right for you if you have facial wrinkles such as smile lines or horizontal forehead creases caused by overactive muscles. This treatment does not work on wrinkles caused by loss of skin elasticity or volume.
