Nefertiti was the wife of an Egyptian Pharoah whose bust is one of the most famous and popular pieces of Ancient Egyptian art. Nefertiti's bust is said to have 'golden proportions' of neck and jawline, which help inspire this treatment.
A Nefertiti Lift is a non-invasive cosmetic procedure that involves injecting anti-wrinkle medicine into the neck and jaw muscles. This results in an enhancement of the neck and jaw lines and correction of facial proportions achieved with the shrinking of the jaw muscle (Masseter) and reducing the activity of the neck muscles (Platysma) helping to create a sharp and tapered lower face.
At FaceLab, we use these facial characteristics observed in Nefertiti’s bust as a guide for jawlines. The tapered triangular appearance of her face flows from the temple region downwards to the jaws and chin, with these geometric features inspiring our cosmetic work.
The Nefrititi slim-LIFT is one of FACELAB’s popular Signature packages. It involves injection of nuromodulators to slim the face and reduce jowls, sagging skin, and necklace lines.

Following a thorough evaluation of your facial structure, jaw and neck muscles, the Facelab clinicians will be able to recommend what treatments may work best for you. In cases where the jowls are very heavy and enlarged, the 'Nefertiti look' can be achieved by combining the traditional anti-wrinkle injections with other Facelab treatments such as lifting threads and laser skin tightening.
Human faces and bodies go through many changes overtime. The masseter and platysma muscles in the lower half of the face have a particularly significant effect on the changing shape of the face and jawline.
The masseter is the ‘chewing’ or ‘grinding’ muscle, and the platysma is the neck muscle that rises from the collarbone and chest bone to connect with the masseter at the lower border of the jaw. Over time, the downward pull of the platysma (neck) can give the appearance of 'jowls' and a squarish face.
The non-surgical Nefertiti facelift
The Nefertiti Lift is often described as a non-surgical lower facelift. By targeting both the masseter and platysma muscles, we can have a profound effect on the shape of the face and how it changes over time.
The careful and precise application of anti-wrinkle medicine to these two muscles can reduce their size and ability to contract. As a consequence, the face slims down across the cheek and jowl regions and the neck becomes smoother with fewer horizontal 'necklace' lines.
At Facelab, our clinicians understand ideal facial proportions, they understand how these muscles work in the face.
To achieve the best possible results with a Nefertiti Lift, other muscles can also be treated with anti-wrinkle medicine to help raise the corners of the mouth and improve the skin texture of the chin. Dermal Fillers can also be used in the jawline and chin region to further improve the overall shape of the face.
While the Nefertiti Lift can last for up to six months and beyond only certain parts of the treatment may have to be repeated and the duration of the effect usually increases with as treatments are repeated.
