If you have sagging jowls and you want to fix them without surgery, jaw filler can help. This treatment uses dermal fillers to subtly change the shape of your jaw, and can create a noticeable difference in the overall appearance of your face.
During your consultation, a skilled injector will evaluate your needs and goals. Then, they will recommend the best formula for your unique situation.
As we age, sagging jowls become more common, but luckily there are a number of treatment options that can be utilised to reduce or prevent them.
There are many factors that contribute to sagging jowls, such as weight gain or loss, sun exposure, and smoking. Avoiding smoking and sun damage is the most effective way to prevent jowls from developing in the first place.
Another cause of sagging jowls is poor skin care routines. Regular use of nourishing skincare products and a diet rich in antioxidants, anti-inflammatory agents, hyaluronic acid and collagen can improve skin elasticity and help prevent sagging jowls.
In addition to these measures, there are also surgical procedures that can be used to help reduce sagging jowls. These are called neck lifts and are often done by a cosmetic surgery specialist. They involve making incisions around the side of your neck to reposition fat, tighten muscles, and recontour the jawline. These surgeries are highly effective at taking years off the face, but they have significant risks and can cause complications.
Chin filler is a popular treatment for women and men of all ages who want to achieve a more defined, sculpted jawline. It's also used to add volume and improve the shape of an asymmetrical face or to soften an overly sharp or angular jawline.
A well-defined chin is the key to a beautiful face. But a weak chin can be caused by aging, weight gain or other factors that cause sagging of the skin in this area.
Fortunately, it can be fixed with jowl filler. This non-surgical technique involves injecting hyaluronic acid gels into the chin and lower jawline, which can lift and revolumize the tissue to improve the appearance of sagging jowls.
Before receiving your chin filler treatment, your provider will examine your face and discuss your goals. This helps them determine the type and amount of filler that will work best for you, as well as the depth and locations of your injections.
If you have mild jowls, you may want to consider a chin filler treatment. This is a popular option with both men and women, as it can help to smooth and contour the jawline for a more chiselled profile.
The treatment works by injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle. It can subtly smooth, contour and tone the jowls, helping to define your features.
Alternatively, Sculptra(tm) or thread lifts can also be used to improve the look of the jowls. They also help to stimulate collagen in the area, so they can be a great alternative for treating moderate jowls.
The jowls are one of the most common signs of ageing, and can be caused by sun-damage, smoking, genetics, diet and lifestyle habits. The best way to prevent them is by maintaining a healthy diet, exercising regularly and protecting your skin from the sun with daily sunscreen.
Moderate Plus Jowls
Moderate plus jowls are more pronounced than mild jowls and can be treated with chin filler (more information about this treatment in my article here). Patients typically need a base of 4-8 syringes which should be done over 2-4 appointments spaced out over 2-9 months.
Another option for fixing moderate plus jowls is the FDA-approved Ultherapy skin tightening ultrasound system. This non-invasive treatment lifts and firms loose, sagging skin on the face, neck and decolletage areas with little or no downtime.
The results are noticeable within one to two months and can last for up to two years. The treatment is safe and effective because it targets the foundational layer of skin without disrupting the surface of the skin. It stimulates collagen production by delivering focused ultrasound energy, which tightens the face and improves the appearance of jowls. It is ideal for clients who are concerned with skin laxity and looseness on the neck, chin and jawline.
