Sagging Jowls Treatment
One of the most noticeable facial areas affected by aging is the jowls. A youthful face has a firm lower cheek and jawline, while an aging face has sagging jowls that diminish the jawline definition. Jowls change the facial shape, making it heavier in the lower portion. At Dallas Facial Plastic Surgery Center, we offer non-surgical sagging jowls treatment at our clinic in Irving, TX.
The jowls are skin and tissue that sag below the jawline. This occurs with everyone as the skin loses elasticity, but weight gain, genetics and other factors can create more pronounced jowls with age. The facelift is the gold standard for sagging jowls treatment, but not everyone needs surgery to tighten the jawline skin. There are skin tightening treatments for sagging jowls that can create a more youthful and firm lower face and neck.
Tightening the Jawline and Neck
The jawline is an excellent indicator of aging. A defined jawline creates a precise division between the lower face and upper neck. When skin and tissue sag along the jawline and upper neck, it adds years to the age of the face. In the early stages of sagging jowls, there are treatments that can tighten and firm the skin. The goal with skin tightening treatments is to stimulate collagen production deep in the skin to restore firmer, more youthful skin.
Sagging jowls and neck skin can be treated with thermal energy to restore tighter skin. Radiofrequency and ultrasound energy are effective options for skin tightening in the face and neck areas. The treatments are non-invasive and do not require extensive downtime after the procedure. However, these can only tighten the skin, not tissue below the skin that can sag along the jawline.
There are non-surgical options for reducing the appearance of sagging jowls in the early stages. Skin tightening, collagen induction therapy and even facial fillers can help define the jawline for a more youthful appearance.
