Jowls AJE

What Are Jowls?

“Jowls” refers to the loose, sagging skin below the jawline. Most people develop jowls with age, and there are also a number of other factors which contribute to developing jowls.

What Causes Jowls?

Smoking, excess alcohol, as well as sun damage, can all speed up the aging process, leading to a loss of the skin’s collagen and elasticity.

As well as possibly having a genetic predisposition jowls, they could also occur if you have had a lot of weight loss. Sleeping on your front or side consistently may cause jowls to form over time.

Turkey neck

People with jowls may experience crepey or deeply wrinkled skin, sometimes referred to as ‘Turkey Neck’, or they may have another layer of skin that drops below their jaw looking like a Double Chin.

Facial sagging

Jowls make the face look as if the face has sagged. That the normal jawline position has dropped and definition of the face is lost.

It is not necessarily a sign of being overweight and does not indicate underlying health problems. As part of aging, it's natural for facial sagging to occur around the chin and jawline.

Treatments For Jowls

Plasma Pen

The Plasma Pen Skin Tightening  treatment is s effective for several skin concerns by smoothing wrinkled skin.

It's gives excellent results for Turkey Neck and for treating loose, hanging skin on the Jowls.

Dermal or Facial Fillers

Dermal fillers involve injecting a medically developed solution under the skin with a fine needle to enhance facial features, lasting up to 12 months.

Jowls may be improved by Fillers in the Jawline or in the Cheeks to lift sagging skin and subtly contour and tone the jowls to give more definition to the jawline.

Microneedling

An improvement of Jowls can also be achieve by Microneedling.

Microneedling is a treatment that uses tiny needles (not injections) to cause microscopic punctures in the skin. This encourages the body to create a wound healing response and renew the skin cells. As your skin repairs, the production of collagen and elastin is triggered to give an almost immediate plumping effect.

The best results from  Microneedling are seen after a course of treatments.

Skin Peels

Skin Peels work with the power of naturally occurring acids and active ingredients to deeply exfoliate the skin.

The treatment stimulates new cell growth and encourages collagen production, helping to reveal clearer, fresher and firmer skin.
