Many women (as well as men), experience loose skin on the lower face, a condition sometimes referred to as sagging jowls. This should not be confused with a loss of skin volume which is a different condition altogether.
What causes jowls? The cause can be due to a weakening of the muscles supporting the skin, and then with gravity, the tissue in the 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 this unwelcome change to their appearance, was surgery. However now with treatment modalities such as ultrasound, radio frequency, lasers and lights, Dermatologists can target the weakened muscle and get rid of jowls without surgery.
One of the best treatments that we have for 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.
Fillers for 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 sometimes called a filler for jowls which is not exactly correct, because Profhilo is not a dermal filler, but it is definitely an excellent option for improving the appearance of skin tissue in the lower face.
