What Causes Loose Skin or Jowls?
Many women (as well as men), experience loose skin on the face and neck, a condition often referred to as jowls. This should not be confused with a loss of skin volume which is a different condition altogether.
The cause of the loose skin or jowls, can be due to a weakening of the muscles supporting the skin, and then with gravity, the tissue in the neck and lower face will drop. A loss of fat and connective skin tissue can also be a cause of jowls.
How To Get Rid of Jowls?
For many years, the only option for people who were concerned by these changes to their appearance, was surgery. However now with treatment modalities such as ultrasound, radio frequency, lasers and lights, we are now able to target the weakened muscle and dramatically improve the appearance of the jowls without surgery.
One of the best treatments that we have for treating sagging jowls is Ultherapy which uses Microfocussed Ultrasound energy to deliver heat deep within the skin to stimulate the production of new collagen and elastin, which are the building blocks of our skin. Over time Ultherapy will give your lower face a lift and it is favoured by patients who want a non-surgical option to fix sagging jowls.
We can also use certain injectable treatments to restore volume to the mid face and treat laxity in the lower face. Treatments such as Profhilo are excellent for improving the appearance of the lower face.
