The Botox Facelift or the Nefertiti Lift is a popular alternative to facelift surgery. The strong neck muscles (platysma) act in opposition to the levator muscles to create balance in facial appearance and assist in returning the face to normal after expression. Over time, these strong bands of muscle actually play a role in pulling the appearance of the face down, exacerbating the effect of ageing. In an appropriate patient, relaxing these muscles with a carefully placed, appropriate dose of Botulinum (Botox® or Dysport®) can help lift the entire face and reduce the downward effect of ageing. The treatment can often prolong the need for surgery or in the right patient deliver the lifting results they seek. This treatment often works very well in conjunction with the Liquid Facelift, a treatment using dermal filler to subtly lift the features of the face. Dermal Filelr can be used to replace lost volume and restore the facial features we enjoy in our youth. The two treatments together provide a powerful lifting result!
