Nefertiti Neck Lift with Botox Injections in Houston, TX
HOW IT WORKS
Nothing makes you look more aged than a sagging, flaccid neck with loose folds of lax, wrinkled skin. Even if your face looks youthful, the aged appearance of your neck may detract from your appearance.
For many years, the only way to improve the appearance of the neck area was to perform a surgical neck lift, which requires anesthesia, as well as recovery period during which patients must rest and stay out of work.
Fortunately, wrinkles and sagging skin in the neck area may now be easily corrected by means of the Nefertiti Neck Lift. For those who opt to forego or postpone surgical treatments, the Nefertiti Neck Lift is a nonsurgical alternative to a surgical neck lift.
What Is the Nefertiti Neck Lift?
Named after the famed Egyptian queen and developed by the Swiss dermatologist Dr. Phillip Levy, the Nefertiti Neck Lift uses Botulinum toxin type A, commonly known as Botox, to rejuvenate the appearance of the neck.
For decades, Botox has been used to improve the appearance of facial skin in the forehead and upper facial area. By the early 2000s, Botox injections began to be considered as a potentially effective treatment for improving firmness and skin laxity in other areas, such as the neck and jawline.
How Long Do the Results Last?
The Nefertiti Neck Lift tightens the skin of the neck, reduces the appearance of wrinkles, and improves definition in the neck and jaw line by means of strategically placed Botox injections. In order to maintain the results of the Nefertiti Neck Lift, ongoing follow-up treatments must be maintained.
While it’s true that some patients will eventually require a more intensive lifting procedure such as liposuction or a surgical neck lift as the aging process progresses, the Nefertiti Lift can provide a “mini lift” that provides “a minimally invasive, effective, and acceptable alternative for those patients seeking a way to push back surgery,” according to Dr. Levy.
Today, for Houston-area residents, the Nefertiti Neck Lift is available in Houston at Glamour Plastic Surgery and Med Spa, performed by the skillful hand of renowned plastic surgeon Dr. Olga Bachilo, one of Houston’s finest plastic surgeons.

How long does it take for Nefertiti lift to work?
In some cases, it may take up to three weeks after injections before Nefertiti lift results are noticeable. After this point, results should last three to four months. Once results subside, you can receive maintenance injections to keep up the appearance of a smooth, wrinkle-free neck.
How long does a Nefertiti lift last?
Botox and other neuromodulators’ results are not permanent, meaning that Nefertiti results are temporary. Most patients find that their results last about three to four months. However, it is possible for Nefertiti results to last up to six months for some patients. Together with your injector, you can determine an appropriate routine for your maintenance injections.
How is a Nefertiti lift done?
A Nefertiti neck lift is performed by making neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) injections to improve the appearance of the neck area. First, the neck area is thoroughly cleansed. Then, topical numbing may be applied as needed. Injections are then made to lift the skin and reduce wrinkles or lines in the neck. The Nefertiti lift procedure can be completed in under 15 minutes in most cases.
What does a Nefertiti Neck Lift do?
A Nefertiti neck lift reduces wrinkles, tightens the skin, and improves definition in the neck and jawline area. This is achieved by placing neurotoxin (Botox, Dysport, Xeomin) injections to minimize wrinkles through the area. During a consultation, your possible results can be explained.
How to prepare for a Nefertiti neck lift?
Prior to your Nefertiti neck lift, you should avoid taking blood-thinning or anti-inflammatory medications to minimize bruising. You should also be prepared to answer questions about your health history, including any medical conditions, allergies, or medications and supplements that you take. This will allow your injector to evaluate whether you are a safe and suitable candidate for the procedure. A Nefertiti neck lift requires no downtime, so there is not need to prepare for someone to drive you home or care for you after the procedure.
