Nefertiti was an Egyptian queen known for her beautiful strong jawline and long neck, that’s always been associated with beauty.  Hence, the procedure, “The Nefertiti Neck Lift” improves the definition of the jaw and tightens the skin on the neck by using Botox.  It is achieved by relaxing the muscles under the chin with Botox. Today, you can get a sharp jawline that looks completely natural with the rejuvenation factor you are looking for.  The new Nefertiti Lift.  It is done by injecting Botox along the jawline, the platysma muscles, and the muscles that pull the muscles down, thereby allowing the muscles that work upward to act, and that creates a nice, beautiful jawline.  It takes about a week to see the jawline lifting.

The Egyptians of thousands of years ago were as determined and dedicated as some of today’s doctors.  Not only were they interested in keeping faces and bodies looking young, ( think Cleopatra and her oil treatments, milk baths, henna ) they also invented an elaborate embalming process to keep the body intact for the long voyage to eternity.  ( the pyramids are designed to help preserve the body in its earthly form for years )  While the study of the afterlife is best left to Egyptologists, I wanted to share a great moisturizing treatment you can do at home:
