Just as Queen Nefertiti reigned over one of the seven wonders of the ancient world, the Nefertiti Lift is one of the medical wonders of modern times. Nefertiti Lift defines jawlines fit for a queen.
At Blue, BOTOX® or Dysport injections are applied along the lower jawline, decreasing the downward-pull of the cheek by muscles under the jaw. As the 'downward-pulling' muscles are relaxed, the 'upward-pulling' facial muscles hold the cheek up without resistance. The Nefertiti Lift reverses the balance of muscle power, giving a toned and defined jawline. Although it's a new procedure, the main compound in the treatment has been tried-and-tested and perfected over the years. The result? A highly-effective treatment that can turn back the clock with tighter, tauter skin for a sharp and contoured jawline.
When the lines of the jaw and neck are straight and defined, it gives the face an unparalleled quality of youthfulness and refinement. In medical beauty procedures, the Nefertiti Lift delivers one of the most striking changes, and when repeated every three to four months, keeps the jawline taut, straight and defined at all times.
We recommend 30 units of BOTOX® or 75 units of Dysport for the Nefertiti Lift. However, the amount required will depend on the individual and the desired effect. For best results, consult with one of our trained specialists before the procedure.
Pre and Post Care
Ingestion of alcoholic beverages prior to treatment can increase the chances of bruising and/or swelling. No anti-inflammatory drugs (Ibuprofen, Motrin, Advil, Aleve, Vioxx, etc.), aspirin, Vitamin E, or Ginko Biloba one week prior to treatment. This will reduce the possible side effects of bruising and/or swelling in area(s) of treatment. You cannot be pregnant or breastfeeding to receive treatment.You cannot be allergic to eggs or egg products in order to receive treatment.
Do not lie down for 2 to 4 hours following treatment. Facial exercises (squint/frown/smile) are strongly recommended in the treated area for one hour after injection. Avoid manipulation of treated area for a minimum of four hours. By following the above measures you will minimize the occurrence of ptosis (droopy eyelids), bruising, and less than optimal outcomes.Common side effects include a slight headache lasting a few hours up to 48 hours, and temporary bruising and/or swelling.
Treatment effect will take 2 to 10 days. Benefits of treatment may last 3 to 6 months; the average is 4 months.
Please inform the office if the resolution of the lines has not taken effect in 10 days. Additional unit of Botox may be necessary to achieve desired result. Follow up treatments should be scheduled prior to return of full movement of muscle, usually at three months. Consistent repeated treatments will produce the best resolution of wrinkles.
