Nefertiti was arguably one of the most famous and beautiful women of the ancient world, and perhaps one of the very first icons of beauty. One very notable feature is her elegant and long neck, which is complemented by a beautifully defined jawline.
The WHAT: Enter the present-day Nefertiti Lift technique, a contemporary treatment focused on relaxing the depressor action of the platysmal bands (the pulling-down on the neck) and other muscles to re-contour the jawline without surgery.
The WHY: In short, the platysma basically spreads from the chest up the neck, and to the jaw. When we age, (and due to genetics) the platysma separates into ropey bands, which can pull downward, exaggerating the jowls and creating the ‘turkey neck’ or ‘gobbler’ effect.
The HOW: During the Nefertiti Lift treatment, Botox Cosmetic is used to relax those bands, and sometimes the muscles that pull the corners of the mouth/chin down. Dr. Quenby Erickson uses this advanced, non-invasive (and pretty much painless) technique to smooth and lift without surgery or downtime. The result is a beautiful and elegant jawline and smooth neck. The results last up to 3-4 months, and usually take at least 20-25 units of Botox (increasing from there, depending on your individual needs).

Erickson Dermatology Launches in Chicago
Hi, my name is Elizabeth Weiler, Practice Manager and Aesthetic Director at Erickson Dermatology. I will be one of the contributors to Erickson Dermatology’s blog. If you are reading this, You are either digging way back in our archives, or you are embarking on this journey with us! So, let’s start with who we are and what we are all about.
Who we are:
Dr. Quenby Erickson is a practicing board certified dermatologist.
Dr. Erickson received her Fellowship Training in Mohs Micrographic Surgery and Procedural Dermatology (at MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas) and is a fellow of the American College of Mohs Surgery, a fellow of the American Academy of Dermatology, and a member of the American Society of Dermatologic Surgery.

So, why Erickson Dermatology?
Dr. Erickson fell in love with the city of Chicago, and decided it was time to open a cosmetic dermatology practice here. Living in the city, she saw that there was a gap that needed to be filled: people who needed the expertise of a board-certified dermatologist sometimes had to wait months to be seen. Additionally, waiting room times were ultra long, and people often described the doctor rushing, maybe even backing out of the room as they tried to ask their questions. So, Dr. Erickson set out to provide a whole new experience. Our cosmetic dermatology office is all about the client experience. Dr. Erickson’s vision is to provide a five-star experience, that’s convenient for you. You won’t find long waiting room times or a rushed appointment here. It’s all about you. This is your time.
