NEFERTITI NECK LIFT
The Nefertiti Neck Lift is a recent innovative technique in anti-aging, the treatment uses Botox to create definition along the jawline and neck.
As we age the skin around the neck and jawline can begin to sag with ‘turkey necks’, jowls, and loss of volume in the area being common occurrences. We often meet clients who are unsure of how to tackle jowls and sagging as throughout the aging process the pull of gravity causes the skin to deflate like a balloon. This causes the natural facial volume to disappear, leaving behind sagging hanging skin.
The Nefertiti Neck Lift was named after a very famous Egyptian queen. Nefertiti was known for her contoured jawline and smooth neck the treatment is named after her as it aims to create a similar effect.
Using a series of Botox injections the Nefertiti Neck Lift smooths the neck and jawline, these injections fight the pull of gravity, improve elasticity and avert the signs of aging. The treatment ultimately restores volume and a sense of youth to aged skin.

The Nefertiti Neck Lift gives full results in almost 2-3 weeks following treatment, results last for up to 6 months when a top-up treatment would then be required.
What can I expect from treatment?
You will have an initial consultation with a Skin n Tonic Aesthetics practitioner where you will be able to discuss your concerns and what you are hoping to achieve from treatment.
The treatment itself is non-surgical, your practitioner will administer a series of Botox injections into the jawline and platysma muscle of the neck. The Botox injections work by relaxing the muscles in the face and neck which are responsible for pulling the face downwards. As a result, the opposing muscles pull the face upwards in the opposite direction creating a lifting effect.
The treatment ultimately tightens skin to create a taught youthful appearance.

Post-treatment most clients are able to resume their day-to-day activities immediately. However, some clients do experience mild side effects such as swelling, bruising, mild redness. It is also common to feel unusual sensations on or around the treatment area, however is completely normal as the injected muscles adjust.
It is imperative that you DO NOT rub or touch the treatment area or bend over for the first 24 hours post-treatment as you risk spreading the protein.
Any kind of Facial, Massage, Beauty, or Spa Treatment should also be avoided. This is because any touching of the treatment area risks spreading out the Botulinum Toxin.

In terms of results, it is important to be patient. Some clients notice results after a few days however optimal results will be seen 2-3 weeks following injection.
Some patients find that even after this period if they try hard they can still move the muscles to a small extent in the treatment area. This is normal, the aim of the treatment is not to prevent you from moving the muscles in your face but reduce the number of times that your muscles contract as this is when wrinkles occur.
For the highest standard of results, we advise treatments to be 12-16 weeks apart, however, your practitioner will discuss this is in more depth with you.
