One of the most effective and yet under-utilized cosmetic uses of neuromodulators is a treatment known as the Nefertiti Neck Lift. Queen Nefertiti of ancient Egypt was known for her beautiful sleek neck and contoured jawline. The Nefertiti is a fast and economical way to restore a youthful neck and jawline. It does so by a muscle known as the Platysma.
The Platysma is a broad sheet of muscle that originates in the Pectoral (chest) and deltoid (shoulder) muscles, rises over the clavicle (collarbone) and proceeds upwards along the sides of the neck. The muscle inserts partly at the mandible (the jaw) but also attaches to the skin of the lower face and the muscles surrounding the mouth. The muscle increases the diameter of the neck and draws the lower lip and corner of the mouth sideways and downward. It is part of the muscle system known as the superficial musculoaponeurotic system (the SMAS).
Maybe you didn’t need to know all that. LOL! All you really need to know is that, as we age, the Platysma is the muscle responsible for the tight vertical cords that appear in the neck and is one of the culprits that cause the downward grooves (marionette lines) to appear at the corners of the mouth. It contributes to pulling our lower face down and the appearance of jowls. It is a major cause of horizontal (necklace) lines and laxity in the neck.
A Nefertiti Neck Lift takes minutes to perform, starts taking effect within days and the results will last up to six months! Within two weeks, the neck will appear more slender, the bands relax, the jawline becomes more defined, the face, mouth, and jowls lift and necklace lines appear smoother. The results are truly remarkable! Many people who would benefit from this life-changing cosmetic injection treatment do not do so, perhaps because they don’t know there are non-surgical solutions. Perhaps it is because they are simply not aware of the way their neck appears when they are not looking in the mirror.
When we look at ourselves in a mirror we normally would not clench, grimace or strain the muscles in our neck and jaw. When we are going about our daily activities, however, platysma bands become visible to others. Many people who would truly benefit don’t realize how the neck bands affect their appearance because they don’t clench or strain when looking in the mirror. Try clenching your teeth, frowning hard and tightening up your neck while you look in a mirror. If neck cords pop out while you flex, you will love the results of a Nefertiti! You will never want to go without its confidence boosting, anti-aging benefits!
