Nefertiti Lift

What is a Nefertiti Lift?

The Nefertiti Lift is named after Queen Nefertiti who was known for her distinctive sharp jaw line. A Nefertiti Lift is a treatment that involves lifting the jawline for treating sagging jowls, revealing a defined jaw line. Anti-wrinkle injections are administered to relax the muscles that exaggerate the jowls, therefore allowing the muscles on the upper face to lift the lower face.

What are the benefits of a Nefertiti Lift?

The Neferititi Lift delivers a subtle but yet significant lower face lift that reduces sagging jowls. It provides definition of the jaw line that provides a more youthful and refreshed appearance.

What does the Nefertiti Lift treatment involve?

At Cosmetic Effects, a full consultation is completed prior to your treatment. This includes us performing a thorough assessment to determine whether the treatment is suitable and for us to understand your concerns and work towards an achievable goal.

The treatment time for the Nefertiti Lift can range from 30 minutes to 1 hour and involves injections into the skin using a fine needle or cannula. Topical anaesthetic cream can be applied prior to increase comfort. The amount of Dermal Filler required is discussed during your consultation and depends on area of concern. This also varies for individuals.

How much does a Nefertiti Lift cost?

The cost of a Nefertiti Lift depends on the number of units required and the extent of the lift required. Please contact the clinic to receive information on costs.

When will a Nefertiti Lift work and how long does the lift last?

After your treatment, you will start to see results in approximately 2-7 days time. This is a gradual onset where you will not feel any change however you will see the beginning effect. In 14-21 days time it will be most effective and full results can be seen.

The lift can last up to 3-4 months however this does depend on individual metabolism, therefore this varies. The Nefertiti lift should be repeated every 3-4 months without recovery period, disabling the muscles to become active again causing sagging.

What are the side effects of a Nefertiti Lift and is this treatment safe?

As this treatment involves an injection, normal side effects such as swelling, bruising and tenderness can occur, lasting a few days. On some occasions, bruising can last up to 14 days. This does vary and can be as a result of your aftercare.
