In selected patients, administration of BTX-A to these bands can give the visual effect of a mini-lift avoiding the need for surgery. This is combined with treatment to the underside of the jaw, thus improving the definition of the jawline. This procedure is often referred to as the “Nefertiti Lift”. Egyptian artefacts show Queen Nerfertiti as having a perfect jawline and the term was thus coined in her name.
It may be beneficial to combine this with some volumising filler along the jawline, to help restore lost volume and thus support to the skin.
