There are numerous non-surgical neck lift procedures that can give you a much younger looking neck without going under the knife.
Nonsurgical Neck lift procedures can:
Tighten loose jowls & skin under chin
Decrease or eliminate double chin
Firm up a loose jawline
Relax the vertical neck muscles (Platysma) that can become ropey & prominent and pull down on the jawline, making it look slack.
Diminish neck band wrinkles
The following nonsurgical procedures are often used to minimize the signs of aging in neck skin
Reduces jowls and contour your jawline
Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen known for her long, elegant neck and sleek jawline. We think of Botox as “relaxing a muscle”, so how does relaxing the muscle along the jawline and neck actually lift?
The Nefertiti neck lift is a new technique by placing multiple injections of Botox along the lower jawline, as well as along the upper neck, and at times down the side of the neck along the platysma muscle. Once these muscles are relaxed, the net effect is an upward pull from facial muscles, lifting the jowl; and creating a younger jawline, neck, and face. For a lasting result the treatment needs to be repeated every 3 to 4 months. Although most of the patients are happy with the results, the off-label use of botulinum toxin A is not a replacement for surgery.
There are non-surgical techniques that will reduce your jowls and contour your jawline. The results redefine the elegant lines of the jaw and neck for a youthful, tighter, more contoured appearance. Botox injections are used to redefine the jawline and provide ‘lifting’ in the neck area.
Sagging in the neck area can occur as you get older, and while surgical neck lifting is a feasible option, many people are reluctant to undergo major surgery for this purpose.
In these cases, a Botox neck lift is a viable good option. When Botox is injected into the platysma muscles it causes them to become relaxed resulting in less tension and pulling of the lower face. It takes 2 weeks to achieve the full effect of Botox. You will notice that your jawline is essentially lifted, as are the corners of your mouth.
On average, Botox lasts for about 4-6 months. This means that you can have this procedure done twice a year to maintain your results. It is a convenient option that can enhance your youthfulness without you having to undergo a major surgery.
