Jowls refer to excess droopy skin below the cheeks and along the jawline. Jowls detract from the natural contours of the chin and jawline. They can contribute to pronounced nasolabial folds as well as make your jawline appear lower creating an aged appearance.
The neck lift done to address jowls under the chin can be a transformative procedure. This surgery smooths and reshapes an aging neck – restoring definition and a more youthful contour. At Pryor Health, we believe in cosmetic outcomes that make our patients feel and look incredible.
Injectable fillers can be administered to the cheeks or chin to help temporarily lift jowls. Such treatments are particularly effective if you’re just starting to notice your skin has begun to sag from volume loss.
For results that last two or more years, we recommend fillers that stimulate collagen production,. Bellafill, Radiesse, and Sculptra can be applied to help build out the jawline and reduce the appearance of jowls.
Microneedling triggers the body to produce more collagen using fine needles to create tiny channels in the skin. The additional collagen produced smooths and fills out your skin which can lead to reduced jowling.
Microneedling allows your skin to produce an anabolic wound-healing response. This means that over the next few months, you will rebuild your own collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid.
Using ultrasound energy, Ultherapy heats the deep dermal layers to tighten and lift sagging skin. The FDA cleared Ultherapy as the only nonsurgical procedure to lift the skin on the neck, under the chin, and on the eyebrow and there’s no downtime!
The ultrasound energy activates the body’s natural response to stimulate the growth of fresh, new collagen, and strengthen your skin.
To some degree or another everyone develops jowls somewhere in the aging process. For some, this can occur early on and can be severe. As your body slows its natural production of collagen, the strength and elasticity of your skin begin to diminish. And eventually, the areas around your cheeks and chin give in to the pull of gravity.
Unfortunately, as we age, the body is prone to creating fat deposits in the jowl areas, and fat begins to melt away in areas where it once helped us appear youthful, such as high on the cheeks.
Muscles begin to become too lax to support the overlying skin and fat, which begin to sag over time. In our mid-30s bone loss can also become a factor. Genetics can enter into it as well as lifestyle factors such as diet, smoking, and sun exposure.
Like any cosmetic facial rejuvenation, jowl treatments first require evaluation to determine the underlying cause. During your consultation, our aesthetic team will assess your facial structure and explain your options and which treatment is best for your situation.
Combined approaches, including microneedling and injectable treatments, will result in a more significant improvement than a single procedure.
We invite you to reach out to schedule a consultation for jowl treatment. During your consultation and examination, we will help you determine which treatment is right for you and which will provide the results you are looking for. Your transformation begins today.
You are invited to book a treatment at Pryor Health where we offer a full range of Surgical, Medspa and Wellness services to take years off of your appearance. We are known for our results and care of our patients.
