Gummy Smile and Sad Face Smile

The “Nefertiti” Lift
The Nefertiti Lift is a specific technique that uses Botox to provide a non-surgical lower facelift. It’s named after Queen Nefertiti of ancient Egypt, known for her long, graceful neck and jawline. The Nefertiti Lift involves injecting Botox into the platysma muscle, which is located in the neck and extends to the lower face. By relaxing the platysma muscle, it helps to lift and redefine the jawline and neck, giving a more youthful appearance.
Botox is used strategically in this technique to target specific muscles and provide a lifting effect, particularly in the lower face and neck area. It can result in a more defined jawline and a smoother, tighter appearance in the neck region.
What is Botox® ?
Botox® is a natural purified protein prescription medicine which relaxes the muscles and softens wrinkles when injected into facial tissue. It is synonymous with anti-ageing, and treats fine lines around the eyes and forehead. Botox® is one of the safest and most effective anti-ageing treatments available on the market. It is one of the most studied medications, with more than 10,000 published scientific studies to date. Botox® effectively treats fine lines and wrinkles. It has been in use for more than 20 years, with millions of treatments performed worldwide every year.
How does Botox® work ?
Botox® works by relaxing the muscles responsible for fine lines by preventing communication between the nerve endings, muscles and sweat glands. A neurological messaging system between receptors, acetylcholine and the nerve endings.
