A well defined jawline has been a sign of beauty since the time of the Egyptians. This new procedure which creates a well toned, smooth, and lifted jawline as named for Queen Nefertiti, whose bone structure continues to be admired in modern times.
As we age, the effects of gravity, genetics, and the environment, cause our skin to slacken as we lose elasticity. Our bone structure becomes less visible as the taut contours of youth give way. The Nefertiti Lift redefines the elegant lines of the jaw and neck for a youthful, tighter, more contoured appearance.
One such usage is the injection of Muscle Relaxing Injections to improve the look of the jaw line, by playing on the opposing muscular forces on the muscles that drape the lower jaw. This is known as the Nefertiti lift, after Nefertiti, an Egyptian queen of eons ago famed for her beauty and in this instance, her well defined jaw line. With age, the platysma muscle complex which runs over the jaw drags down over the jaw line, causing a loss of the definition of the line and the formation of jowls.
The principle of the procedure is this: if you give a certain number of units of Muscle Relaxing Injections into the muscle under each mandible, and to the upper part of the platysmal band, there is an immediate and visible release of the downward pull of the platysma muscle. When followed 2 to 3 weeks after this procedure, one can notice an obvious re-contouring and elevation of the skin at the jaw line.
