Jowls refer to the sagging skin and fatty tissue that accumulate along the lower jawline, creating a drooping appearance. They often become more noticeable with age, as the skin loses elasticity and facial structures shift. If you’re concerned about jowls detracting from your youthful appearance, don’t worry – there are plenty of effective treatments available to help you restore a smoother, firmer jawline.
Causes of Jowls
Jowls can result from a combination of factors, including aging, genetics, sun damage, and lifestyle habits like smoking. As we age, our skin loses collagen and elastin, which leads to a reduction in firmness and elasticity. Additionally, the natural fat pads in our face begin to shift downward, contributing to the sagging appearance of jowls.
Non-Surgical Jowl Treatments
There are several non-invasive treatment options available to address jowls and restore a more youthful facial contour:
1. Dermal Fillers: The use of hyaluronic acid-based fillers like Juvederm and Restylane can help lift and smooth the jawline by adding volume to the cheeks and mid-face, creating a more balanced appearance. Our expert Master Providers will consult with you to determine the best filler for your specific needs.
2. Sculptra® Aesthetic: This poly-L-lactic acid treatment stimulates collagen production from within, gradually improving volume and firmness in the lower face. Sculptra® Aesthetic can be combined with hyaluronic acid fillers for optimal results, with improvements lasting up to two years.
3. Ultherapy: This non-invasive treatment uses ultrasound energy to stimulate collagen production in the deeper layers of the skin, resulting in a natural lift and tightening effect. Ultherapy can effectively target jowls, improving the appearance of sagging skin and redefining the jawline.
4. Radiofrequency (RF) treatments: RF devices deliver energy to the deeper layers of the skin, promoting collagen and elastin production. This non-surgical treatment option can help tighten and lift the skin around the jawline, reducing the appearance of jowls.
5. PDO Thread Lift: This minimally invasive procedure uses absorbable threads to lift and support sagging facial tissues, providing an instant improvement in the jawline’s contour. Over time, the threads stimulate collagen production for additional lifting and firming.
