When it comes to showing signs of ageing, it is our faces that tend to suffer more than elsewhere on the body. Skin becomes thinner with time, and a loss of facial tissue has a significant impact on overall appearance. One common complaint when it comes to ageing is jowls, which is the lower part of the face that is prone to droopy, sagging skin. Over the years, the sleek contours of the jawline will begin to sag and result in loose skin around the chin and jaw.
Jowls are caused by a loss of elasticity in the skin which happens naturally as we get older, as well as a loss in tissue and fat around the cheeks and mouth. For some, jowls are a natural sign of ageing, but for others, it can cause a drop in self-confidence. There are a number of treatment options available which can reduce the appearance of jowls in both men and women.
Jowls Treatment At Hans Place Practice
At Hans Place Practice, we offer a range of treatments for jowls. Our team can help you to decide which is best for you by conducting a skincare assessment and consultation.
Dermal fillers are used to plump up diminished facial fat pads and restore appearance in the cheeks and around the mouth. This can help to reduce the appearance of jowls by defining the jawline and chin.
ULTRAcel is a non-invasive treatment which uses ultrasound and radiofrequency technology to target ageing skin and deeper tissue. The results are smoother, firmer and lifted skin which can improve signs of ageing around the jawline.
INTRAcel is a targeted skin rejuvenation treatment that is designed to tighten smooth and firm the skin. A combination of radiofrequency technology, micro-needling and fractional treatments are used to reduce the appearance of jowls. It works by stimulating the skin to naturally produce more collagen, resulting in a firmer, tighter jawline and chin.
Renuvion is a minor surgical skin treatment which uses ground-breaking technology to reduce jowls. It involves a Renuvion wand being inserted subdermally through small incisions in the skin. Radio energy is cooled by helium and applied to the problem area which contracts the collagen tissue and boosts collagen production.
VASER Liposuction is a contouring procedure which can remove unwanted fat and tissue. It is an alternative to liposuction and uses targeted ultrasound technology to reshape the jawline area. VASER Lipo is extremely precise and can be used on very specific areas such as for treating jowls.
