Sagging Jowls

Sagging Jowls in the Face

One of the classic signs of aging, a sagging jowl can cause a lack of self confidence in a lot of older women.

What are Saggy Jowls?

A jowl (as it’s most commonly known as) is skin around the jawline that has lost its elasticity and droops down either side of the chin. This is why they are also commonly referred to as ‘sagging jowls’ but can also be known as the ‘sagging skin on jawline’ or ‘sagging skin on either side of chin’.

How are Sagging Jowls formed?

Simply put, it’s a very common sign of aging that happens to most people as they reach their older years. They tend to start to appear when we hit our 40’s, but they can even make an appearance for younger individuals. Sagging jowls along the lower jawline can become worsened with excessive smoking, weight loss, smoking and sun exposure.

Why do I have Saggy Jowls?

These horizontal lines across the forehead can make you look older and more ‘stressed’, if you feel like your forehead lines are taking away your confidence, the good news is they can certainly be fixed. They can be reduced or removed using Botox® to give you a fresh, youthful look.

Frequently Asked Questions

How do you tighten Saggy Jowls?

There are two different techniques we can use to help tighten the jowl area and take away the ‘sagging effect’, at Dr Aesthetica we want to tailor the treatment to meet your unique needs, so during your consultation we can together decide what would work best for your face shape.

Can Botox help Saggy Jowls?

Whilst some treatment centres do use Botox® for jowls, we use a combination of Dermal filler into your cheek area to lift the face and directly into the jowl to help even out your jawline.

We can also further tighten the skin using micro needling (also known as collagen induction), depending on your individual needs. We believe these treatments work best for tightening saggy jowls.

How long does the treatment for Saggy Jowls last?

Dermal Filler tends to last around 9-12 months, although with regular usage the time in-between can increase. Some have even found that their filler can last as long as 18 months before needing a top up.

What else do I need to know?

An average appointment for this treatment usually lasts around 30 minutes and you will start to see results in a week, and then optimal results can usually be seen in 2 weeks from the day of the treatment. There is also no downtime for this treatment.

Of course, there is always the option for a topical anaesthetic to be used – however most find that it is generally pain-free and don’t need it. Side effects of bruising, swelling and bleeding tends to be very rare.

I’m not great with needles but was put at ease, the treatment (Botox) was also comfortable. I will be returning.
