Have you heard of the Nefertiti neck lift? Sounds appealing, right? So what exactly is it?
It is our trusted anti-wrinkle aka botox/azzalure injections into the neck bands.
Why do this?
By placing botox into the neck bands and below the jawline the treatment can help to reduce the appearence of prominent neck bands, tighten the jawline and smooth the appearance of the skin! Winner! And...one of the main benefits of anti-wrinkle injections for neck bands is that they can give a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the neck within just a few days of treatment!
Who should have a Nefretiti?
1. Those wanting to prevent neck ageing! When done early and in the right patient, botox may delay certain signs of neck ageing that are directly related to muscle activity. Starting the treatment at the first sign of platysmal (neck) bands can be helpful for keeping bands relaxed and maintaining a crisp jaweline. The treatment helps to prevent the dreaded 'jowls'!
2. People with strong side-lying bands. The folds formed can disrupt the smoothness and continuity of the jawline during expressions. Treatment can therefore be helpful in smoothing and enhancing the jawline.
Who shouldn't get this treatment?
Someone with obviously loose neck skin and muscle. This is because the neck bands are not due to the contraction of the muscle and therefore the patient won't see any improvement with botox.
How long does the treatment last? It's important to note that anti-wrinkle injections for neck bands are not a permanent solution and typically require maintenance treatments every 3-6 months to maintain results.
Take home message:
Overall, anti-wrinkle injections for neck bands can be a safe and effective way to reduce neck band, smooth out the skin and tighten the jawline, giving a more youthful and refreshed appearance. If you're self-conscious about the appearance of your neck, it's worth considering this treatment as an option. It's best to consult with a qualified medical professional first to see if this treatment is right for you.
