How It Works

Targeting the right muscle

Botulinum toxin or botox prevents muscle contraction by blocking nerve signals. The Nefertiti lift uses different brands of botulinum toxin with specific techniques to target the muscles and skin of the jaw and neck.The injections in the neck focuses on the platysma muscles. These muscles are responsible for pulling the jaw muscles downwards. Overactive platysma muscles create neck bands, and these lines become more prominent as we age. Using the botulinum toxin to relax the platysma muscle will reduce the downward pull on the neck and jawline. As a result, your jawline will look tighter and smoother.

Professionals at the Medical Cosmetic Clinic will thoroughly assess your condition to determine if the procedure is right for you.
