As we age, we may find ourselves wondering how to look more youthful. A botox Nefertiti neck lift in Kelowna can reverse signs of aging on your neck, jaw, and lower face. This treatment involves Botox injections into the jawline and neck area to lift and contour the jawline and reduce neck banding. Learn more about the Nefertiti neck lift Kelowna, including the procedure and benefits below.
What is a Nefertiti Neck Lift?
A Nefertiti neck lift is a nonsurgical neck treatment that uses Botox in Kelowna to relax the neck bands and define your jawline. This treatment creates a more feminine and thinner-looking neck. The Nefertiti lift targets the platysma muscle band that runs vertically from the jawline along the neck. Our Botox specialists at Cerulean Medical Institute will inject Botox into the neck or platysma muscle to diminish lines around the lower face, smooth dimples on the chin, reduce skin folds and jowls, minimize sagging in the lower face and create a more defined jawline.
What is Botox?
Kelowna Botox is an injectable treatment that uses purified botulinum toxin to relax overly contracted muscles, minimizing the formation of fine lines and neck wrinkles. When Botox is injected into the neck and jawline during a Nefertiti neck lift, it softens neck wrinkles, platysmal banding and jowling. This can cause the neck to appear smoother, slimmer, less tense and the jawline to be more contoured.
Why is the Procedure Called a Nefertiti Neck Lift?
The procedure name “Nefertiti neck lift” references the ancient Egyptian Queen Nefertiti because she was known for her thin, elongated neckline. Nefertiti is universally known as an icon of beauty because of her elegant and defined neck and jawline. The Nefertiti neck lift offers a beautiful and natural enhancement to your appearance.
Nefertiti Neck Lift Procedure
A Nefertiti neck lift begins with a consultation with Dr. Chetty, where you will discuss your cosmetic goals. Dr. Chetty will review your medical history and the procedure process. During your treatment, our Kelowna Botox specialists will use a small needle to precisely inject Botox into the muscle band along your lower face, jaw, and neck. Your Botox treatment will last 15-20 minutes.
Benefits of a Nefertiti Neck Lift
A Nefertiti neck lift can help with jawline definition and an improved appearance of prominent neck bands. This treatment is short, effective, and less invasive than surgical neck treatments. Individuals lacking definition in their jawline, jowling, prominent neck bands and wrinkles will benefit a Kelowna Botox Nefertiti neck lift.
How Long Does a Nefertiti Neck Lift Last?
A non-surgical neck lift is a temporary way to restore and enhance your appearance. The treatment lasts up to three to four months. To maintain your desired look, you can receive maintenance treatments every few months.
Nefertiti Neck Lift Recovery
This procedure involves minimal recovery. After your appointment, you can resume your normal daily activities without the need for any significant downtime.
When Will I Notice the Results?
Your results will begin developing five to seven days after your procedure. The full results can be seen 2 weeks after the procedure. Your results can last up to three to four months, depending on the dosage of Botox, your metabolism, and the strength of the muscle injected.
Am I a Good Candidate for a Nefertiti Neck Lift?
Many individuals can undergo the procedure with minimal risks and downtime. Individuals who are unhappy with their visible signs of aging, want a slimmer neckline, desire a more defined jawline, and are above 18 are ideal patients for the procedure. The treatment is an excellent option for adults experiencing downward-pulling neck bands and jowling.
You should avoid the treatment if you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have an infection, and are diagnosed with Myasthenia Gravis or Eaton-lambert syndrome.
Potential Side Effects
Minimal side effects can occur after receiving botulinum toxin injections. These include bruising or redness at the injection site. Side effects should subside within two to five days after the Botox neck lift treatment.
