What is a Nefertiti Lift?

What is a Nefertiti Lift?

The Nefertiti Lift is a small non-invasive procedure that uses neurotoxins (Botox/Dysport) to redefine the jawline, soften marionette lines and lift and tighten the neck.

This cosmetic procedure gets its name from an ancient Egyptian Queen named Nefertiti, who was known for her elongated, graceful neck. 

Why should I get a Nefertiti Lift? 

As we age, our skin loses its elasticity and collagen and begins to show fine lines, wrinkles, and droopiness.

A lot of people focus on their face, but what about the neck? The neck ages just as fast, causing women to be insecure about the way their neck looks.

You can also tell when a woman has had work done to her face, but has neglected to get work done to her neck. This makes the Nefertiti Lift a great option for those women who want to balance the look of the neck and face. 

The neck is a tough area to treat with non-invasive technologies, but the Nefertiti Lift is one of the few options that can really make a difference!

The benefits of a Nefertiti Lift include:

  • Minimizing lines around the bottom part of the face
  • Smooth the skin on the chin
  • Reduce folds of the lower face
  • Reduce lines on the neck
  • Create a more defined jawline


Be sure to talk to your doctor to see if the Nefertiti Lift is a good option for you! 

The Process 

Botox or Dysport is injected into the muscles of the neck. This targets the platysma band of muscles that run vertically from the bottom of your face to your collarbone.

These muscles are the ones that stick out in your neck when you push your chin out. Injecting the Botox or Dysport only takes about 20 minutes.

Recovering from the Nefertiti Neck Lift doesn’t take all that long since it’s just an injection of Botox or Dysport! Be prepared to go about your day, but be aware of the usual botox side effects including: 

  • Bruising
  • Swelling 
  • Headache or Flu-like symptoms
  • Pain at the Injection Site
  • Muscle Stiffness

Keep In Mind

It’s important to remember that this is in no way a lower face lift. The goal of a Nefertiti Lift is to lessen lines, smooth out the skin and create a more defined appearance of the jaw.
