Lower facelift – will it eliminate my jowls and tighten my neck?
We can inject anti-wrinkle injections into the platysma muscle, platysma bands, and the Depressor Anguli Oris (DAO). These are depressor muscles, meaning the action of these muscles are to pull down. When we inject these depressor muscles of the lower face with anti-wrinkle injections, it causes the muscle to relax up. This procedure is known as the “Nefertiti Neck Lift”.
It may temporarily provide some support back up to the lower face. However, we are limited to the result, and the patient must have realistic expectations about the results with this procedure.
Depending on the quality and laxity of the skin, some patients may need other means of treatment, such as lasers, ultrasound, or surgery, to achieve a desirable outcome.
It is best to book in for a consultation at your closest Cityskin clinic, for our practitioners to examine the area/s of concern, to discuss the best options for you.
