Botulinum Toxin For Jowls and Saggy Jawlines
Jowls are another aesthetic issue that an ageing population has to deal with, but can also start to appear as early as your 20’s. A sagging jowl is very noticeable, and unfortunately, a simple cream isn’t going to make it recede. As your skin loses its vitality, it also reduces its ability to hold everything where it once was. botulinum toxin works in this instance by relaxing the pulling action on the jowl. A series of injections are made into the platysmal neck bands. These are the muscles that cause the contraction of the neck, wearing at the elasticity and causing a sagging jawline. The injections pull back the jowl and relax the muscles that pull on the skin, removing any signs of wrinkles.
It’s important to reiterate the need for a qualified practitioner when undergoing any botulinum toxin treatment. The team at Prescription Skin Care are skilled professionals and can provide outstanding results stemming from our far-reaching amount of cosmetic experience.
Prescription Skin Care can provide subtle sculpting of the jawline and jowl to achieve your desired look, as well as totally eliminate any signs of a hanging jowl or saggy jawline using neck lift and Nefertiti Lift treatment.
The Nefertiti Lift
A Nefertiti neck lift is a procedure that involves using botulinum toxin to redefine the lines of the jaw and neck, giving it a tighter, wrinkle free look. The procedure is named after the Egyptian Queen Nefertiti, who is remembered for her elegant bone structure and well-defined jawline.
This lift involves injecting botulinum toxin along the lower jawline and the side of the neck. By doing this, the muscles are lifted so that the droopiness of the neck is decreased and the overall tightness is increased. Removing any signs of a jowl as well as wrinkles that come with having an unsightly jowl.
Just like any botulinum toxin treatment, the benefits start to fade after around 4 months. To continue experiencing the benefits of this neck lift it’s recommended that you visit Prescription Skin Care for repeat botulinum toxin injections.
This is a delicate treatment method which should be performed by professionals in cosmetic surgery. The Prescription Skin Care team were trained at The New Zealand Institute of Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery.
