SOFTEN SIGNS OF AGING AND TIGHTEN THE SKIN WITH AN INJECTABLE NECK LIFT FOR NEWTON AND THE BOSTON AREA
When it comes to skin care, the neck is often neglected as women and men alike tend to focus on applying products to protect their face—but nothing below. Surprisingly for many people, the neck is an area that reveals your age. The platysmal bands are two vertical ridges or strips of muscle that run vertically and stretch down both sides of the neck. Although they aren’t harmful to your health, many people consider noticeable or pronounced platysmal bands to be a cosmetic concern. Happily, BOTOX® is for more than just treating facial wrinkles. A Nefertiti lift at the Boston area’s Dr. Happe Medical Aesthetics helps to reverse those signs of aging that appear on the neck, jaw, and lower face. A Nefertiti lift can temporarily smooth and define the neck area, giving you a more youthful look.
WHAT IS A NEFERTITI LIFT WITH BOTOX®?
A Nefertiti lift is a technique used to soften signs of aging that appear on the neck while lifting the jaw. No surgery is involved, and the risks are minimal. The treatment consists of nothing more than injections.
WHO IS A GOOD CANDIDATE FOR A NEFERTITI LIFT?
Patients who are bothered by signs of aging on the neck and want to delay or avoid a more invasive procedure such as a surgical neck lift may be good candidates for a Nefertiti lift. If you are pregnant, breastfeeding, have been diagnosed with certain types of medical conditions, have an infection, are taking medications that aren’t compatible with botulinum toxin, or have certain psychological conditions then you might not be a good Nefertiti lift candidate.
WHAT DOES THE PROCEDURE FOR A NEFERTITI NECK LIFT INVOLVE?
Dr. Holly Happe will begin by discussing your treatment goals with you during your consultation for a Nefertiti lift, then discuss your physical health and the details of the procedure. During a Nefertiti lift, she injects botulinum toxin into the muscles of the neck and lower face with a small needle. A Nefertiti neck treatment will typically be completed in around 15 minutes. Nefertiti lift results last for several months.
WHICH AREAS CAN BE TREATED WITH BOTOX®?
In addition to a Nefertiti lift, BOTOX® can also be used to address a variety of other cosmetic concerns. Chin BOTOX® can smooth dimples or wrinkles on the chin that are caused by an overactive mentalis muscle. Jawline BOTOX® or face slimming BOTOX® can reduce a heavy lower face area by minimizing enlarged masseter muscles to create a slimmer, more oval, or heart-shaped appearance. Forehead BOTOX® is also a popular treatment for moderate to severe wrinkles on this area, a BOTOX® brow lift can lift sagging eyebrows, crow’s feet BOTOX® can reduce lines at the corners of the eyes, and bunny lines BOTOX® softens lines at the sides of the nose. BOTOX® for under eyes will reduce wrinkles in that area.
The injectable can improve everything from a gummy smile to drooping eyebrows, prevent the nostrils from widening excessively when you smile, and prevent facial muscles from pulling the mouth downward. Preventative BOTOX® can stop wrinkles from forming in the first place—or at least becoming more pronounced. The prescription can also be used for medical reasons, such as BOTOX® for migraines.
WHAT IS AVAILABLE BESIDES A NEFERTITI LIFT TO ENHANCE THE NECK AND JAWLINE AREA?
Kybella® is an injectable containing a type of bile acid that reduces resistant fat between the jaw and neck area to create a slimmer, more sculpted neck. Chemical peels and microneedling are skin rejuvenation treatments that can be applied to the neck area to improve uneven pigmentation, sun damage, and other concerns. Hyaluronic acid fillers like Juvederm®, hyperdilute Radiesse®, and Opus can also help. While BOTOX® is the most well-known wrinkle treatment, there are other effective botulinum type A injections including Daxxify™, Dysport™, and Xeomin®that are used for reducing wrinkles or sculpting the face.
