Nefertiti was the wife of an Egyptian Pharoah whose bust is one of the most famous and popular pieces of Ancient Egyptian art. Nefertiti's bust is said to have the perfect 'golden proportions' of neck and jawline that are nowadays used as a benchmark when assessing facial beauty.
A Nefertiti Lift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves painlessly injecting anti-wrinkle medicine into the neck and jaw muscles. This results in an enhancement of the neck and jaw lines and correction of facial proportions achieved with the shrinking of the jaw muscle (Masseter) and reducing the activity of the neck muscles (Platysma) helping to create a sharp and tapered lower face.
At FaceLab, we use these facial characteristics observed in Nefertiti’s bust as a guide for ideal feminine facial rejuvenation. The tapered triangular appearance of her face flows from the temple region downwards to the jaws and chin, with these geometric features inspiring our cosmetic work. Nefertiti represents pure beauty and form in the face of age, muscle growth, and skeletal change.
The Nefrititi slim-LIFT is one of FACELAB’s popular Signature packages. It involves injection of nuromodulators to slim the face and reduce jowls, sagging skin, and necklace lines.
SAVE when combining Nefrititi slim-LIFT with any other cosmetic injectables.
Following a thorough evaluation of your facial structure, jaw and neck muscles, the Facelab clinicians will be able to recommend what treatments may work best for you. In cases where the jowls are very heavy and enlarged, the 'Nefertiti look' can be achieved by combining the traditional anti-wrinkle injections with other Facelab treatments such as lifting threads and laser skin tightening.
Nefertiti was an Egyptian Queen and Great Royal Wife of the pharaoh Akhenaten. Alive from 1370-1330 BC, Nefertiti was in her prime during the wealthiest and most important period of Ancient Egyptian history. Nefertiti was known as the ‘lady of all women’, with her beautiful and famous facial bust still on display today. At FaceLab, Nefertiti is an ideal worthy of inspiration.
Nefertiti is renowned for her facial structure and beauty, with her ideal yet realistic facial proportions still the envy of women across the world. Her facial bust is one of the most copied works of Ancient Egypt, and a prominent example of the deep and powerful relationship between ideal beauty and power in Ancient Egyptian civilisation.
Human faces and bodies go through many changes as they age. The masseter and platysma muscles in the lower half of the face have a particularly significant effect on the changing shape of the face and jawline.
The masseter is the ‘chewing’ or ‘grinding’ muscle, and the platysma is the neck muscle that rises from the collarbone and chest bone to connect with the masseter at the lower border of the jaw. Over time, the downward pull of the platysma (neck) can give the appearance of 'jowls' and a squarish face. This is often seen in Asian populations and a sign of ageing in Caucasians.
The non-surgical Nefertiti facelift
The Nefertiti Lift is often described as a non-surgical lower facelift. By targeting both the masseter and platysma muscles, we can have a profound effect on the shape of the face and how it changes over time. This treatment uses anti-wrinkle medicine, the same muscle relaxant administered to ion the treatment of skin wrinkles.
The careful and precise application of anti-wrinkle medicine to these two muscles can reduce their size and ability to contract. As a consequence, the face slims down across the cheek and jowl regions and the neck becomes smoother with fewer horizontal 'necklace' lines.
At FaceLab, our clinicians have dental backgrounds, which gives them additional knowledge when it comes to the workings of masticatory and facial muscles. Not only do they understand ideal facial proportions, they understand how these muscles work in the face.
To achieve the best possible results with a Nefertiti Lift, other muscles can also be treated with anti-wrinkle medicine to help raise the corners of the mouth and improve the skin texture of the chin. Dermal Fillers can also be used in the jawline and chin region to further improve the overall shape of the face.
The Nefertiti Lift has become very popular in Asian countries (especially South Korea) where jowl reduction and a more triangular-shaped face have become desirable. While the Nefertiti Lift can last for up to six months and beyond only certain parts of the treatment may have to be repeated and the duration of the effect usually increases with as treatments are repeated.
