The Nefertiti Effect: A Neck (Lift) Fit for a Queen

Who wouldn’t want to have a neck like Nefertiti? The Egyptian queen, known for her elegant features, is a source of inspiration in more ways than one. During her reign alongside Pharaoh Akhentaten, she reshaped both the political and religious structures of Egypt—and may have even ruled alone after his death. Nefertiti became a global icon of feminine power and beauty after archeologists rediscovered her painted sandstone bust in 1913.[1] Her timeless beauty also inspired a procedure that bears her name: the Nefertiti Neck Lift. This treatment tightens, lifts, and defines the entire jawline, profile, chin, and neck without fillers or surgery—and it takes less than ten minutes to complete. Read on to discover how it can work for you.
