How Do You Get Rid of Jowls on Your Face?

Get Rid of Jowls on Your Face

When we enter the later stages of our lives or our golden years, our skin struggles to maintain the elasticity it used to have in its younger years. As we age, our skin loses firmness and elasticity, especially below the jawline, resulting in jowls.

Jowls are notoriously one of the most hated signs of aging. Luckily, there are solutions. In this blog, FaceByFisher shares the treatment options available for those wanting to eliminate the appearance of jowls. 

What Are Facial Jowls? 

Before discussing the treatments, it’s a good idea to confirm if you suffer from jowls. Firstly, you’re more likely to have jowls if you’re an older individual or someone heavier. 

You can spot jowls by their appearance: sagging skin on the chin and lower jawline. This sagging of the skin along the lower jawline causes the face to look heavier instead of contoured and chiseled. Depending on the person, jowls can heavily affect an individual’s overall appearance and be much more pronounced. 

Jowls may also increase the likelihood of other symptoms of aging, such as wrinkles. Ultimately, it’s not a nice thing to have, so it makes sense that so many people undergo treatments to get rid of them.

What Are the Causes of Jowls?

Jowls are predominantly caused by aging and gravity but can also be caused by genetics, UV damage, and by the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin.

In addition, besides age, research shows that the most common causes of jowls are smoking, facial expressions, dry skin, and fluctuations in weight.

It’s also worth noting that natural reabsorption of the jaw is another leading cause of jowls. Fortunately, this can be remedied with an extended chin implant in approved candidates.

How Do You Get Rid of Facial Jowls? 

  1. Face or Neck Lift

A face or neck lift is a great long-term solution for those seeking jowl removal. It involves a qualified surgeon repositioning and resculpting the fat and tissue along the cheek and jaw area. Typically, a surgeon will remove any excess skin as part of this procedure. 

While effective, this solution has a long recovery time, so it’s not suitable for everyone.

  1. Profound Rf.

Profound Rf is an energy-based facial treatment that helps to tighten the skin, making it a suitable treatment option for jowls. 

This non-invasive in-office cosmetic procedure stimulates your body’s collagen building systems, boosting elasticity and making aging skin look younger by reducing the appearance of wrinkles and sagging skin (jowls). 

When performed correctly, Profound Rf redefines the jawline, lifts sagging jowls, and minimizes the look of a double chin in one single treatment.  

  1. Fillers

Fillers are a great non-invasive option for those seeking to improve the appearance of jowls without surgery. Dermal fillers can be injected into the cheeks, jawline, and chin to restore volume, lift sagging skin, and improve the contour of the jawline, reducing the appearance of jowls.

FDA-approved fillers typically contain hyaluronic acid, calcium hydroxylapatite, or poly-lactic acid and are injected directly into the jowl area. Although everyone is different, fillers often help reduce the appearance of jowls. 

  1. Thread Lifts

Thread lifts are a great minimally invasive procedure that eliminates the appearance of jowls and offers a youthful, lifted look without the downtime of surgery. Thread lifts improve jowls by lifting sagging skin with dissolvable threads inserted beneath the skin. The threads stimulate collagen production, enhancing skin firmness. Typically, results after a thread lift procedure are immediate and last about six months.
