Surgery Does Not Have To Be The Only Resort For Sagging Jowls
As we age, women inevitably lose the definition in their jaw line. It Is a rather slow process so many women do not notice it until they reach their mid-40s or 50s.
If you may not have originally noticed your jowl, compare a recent photo of yourself to one a decade ago. If you are able to see that your jawline is closer to the upper portion of your neck, it may be time for a lift.
But the great news is that you can achieve this without going under the knife!
How Did I Get Loose Jowls?
Unfortunately, as we age we lose volume in our face. Facial fat starts to decrease, leaving a gradual “hollow and empty” appearance as years go by. This causes the facial skin to wrinkle and sag, especially around the jaw. As a result, the two distinctive lines below the nose, called the nasolabial folds, start to deepen as well.
A Non-Invasive Solution
Dermal fillers are an effective way to restore that lost facial volume due to aging, such as Juvederm, Restylane or Radiesse. Without knives or anesthesia, a filler is carefully injected under the skin to emulate the fat that has been lost to support the jowls.
The results are as follows: the hanging skin folds are lifted back into their “younger” position, lines and wrinkles are restored, and your cheeks become fuller. This treatment will quickly shave off 10 to 20 years of aging from your face and will last up to two years.
Are You a Good Candidate?
If you are able to pull back your facial skin and realize a large difference in the definition of your jaw line and smoother wrinkles, then chances are you have a decrease in facial fat and would benefit from a filler treatment. A loose jaw line is best fixed with a filler to restore volume.
