How to fix sagging jowls without surgery
Men and women who notice the appearance of jowls and live in the Vancouver, British Columbia area are invited to talk to the team at Hush Beauty about effective treatment options that do not require surgical intervention.
What are jowls?
The jowls are sagging skin of the lower cheeks and face that result in heavy hang around the chin and jawline, causing a change in the lower portion of the face that can reduce the definition of the jawline and cause an aged appearance. Jowls are common in the later years due to increased skin laxity and gravity.
What causes jowls?
There can be many causes of jowls, such as age, weight gain, and genetics. As people get older, the skin loses its elasticity and begins to sag. That is due to a decrease in collagen production and an increase in the breakdown of collagen. When people gain weight, the added fat deposits can push down on the skin, causing it to sag. And finally, some people are born with more lax skin than others, making them more prone to developing jowls.
How to prevent jowls
Patients may also ask about prevention tips to reduce the time at which jowls begin to develop. The only way to reduce one’s risk of noticing sagging jowls is to maintain a stable and ideal weight while making proper lifestyle choices to reduce or slow aging. Additionally, patients might want to ask Dr. Rose Wong about specific treatments that can assist, including:
- Facetite – this minimally invasive skin tightening treatment can lift and tighten the skin using radiofrequency energy and is FDA-approved to provide noticeable results for patients who undergo just a single treatment session.
- Morpheus8 – with radiofrequency microneedling using the Morpheus8 device, patients will enjoy surgical results without the complications, cost, downtime, or scarring associated with these procedures.
- Dermal fillers – dermal fillers can be strategically injected into specific areas around the cheeks and jowls to provide better definition and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles throughout the face.
- Medical-grade skincare products include solutions such as our aggressive anti-aging program, growth factors and cytokines, and firming serums using peptides and retinol.
