Are you tired of the way your sagging jowls make you look? If you are wondering how to lift those sagging jowls, there are treatments available that can help erase them for you and refresh your appearance. Jowling can be minimized using both surgical and non-surgical options.
What causes sagging jowls?
The term ‘jowls’ refers to the area beneath the chin and jawline. When the skin is tight and youthful, the profile is defined and razor-sharp. However, the skin tends to become loose and less elastic with age. The decline in skin quality, along with the accumulation of fat deposits, causes the jowls to sag. Factors such as excess sun exposure and smoking can also contribute to jowling.
How to Lift Sagging Jowls
A facelift or rhytidectomy is considered the most effective way to lift sagging jowls. During a facelift, the surgeon will make incisions around the ears to remove excess skin and fat, and tighten the underlying muscles. The remaining skin will then be lifted, in order to rejuvenate the lower face. This will refine the jawline, and reduce the appearance of jowls.
Individuals with less pronounced jowling can benefit from a non- invasive treatment such as Ultherapy. Ultherapy is a skin rejuvenation treatment that is FDA approved for treating the face and neck. Ultherapy uses focused ultrasound energy directed at the skin’s foundation layer, to lift and tighten droopy jawline skin. The procedure also stimulates the production of new collagen, which further tightens the skin in the following months.
