There are several potential signs of aging that may appear on the face as you get older, and one sign is the sagging skin around your jawline. Also called jowls, this condition is one that many people find unappealing and look for ways to correct the imperfection.
At Beauty Now Laser & Skin Aesthetics, we can help if you’re in this position. We have a number of different dermal fillers that might be right for you depending on your exact skin goals, including even the worst cases of sagging jowls. Let’s look at what causes this issue in the first place, and offer solutions to prevent or correct sagging jowls if they’re an issue for you.
The primary cause of sagging jowls is simple: Age. While there are extrinsic factors that can exacerbate or speed up these symptoms, such as smoking cigarettes, eating too much sugar or exposing yourself to sun damage, anything that compromises skin cells will cause aging. Everyone will experience sagging in their jawline at some point.
This is because of the body’s natural loss of fat and elastin in the face during the aging process. At the same time, skin collagen – a vital protein that supports and firms the skin – begins to be produced at much lower rates. This combination leads to wrinkles and sagging jowls.
Preventing and Correcting Sagging Jowls
The good news is that while jowls are a natural development for many people, it’s possible to make improvements as soon as changes are noticeable.
The best method here is to use dermal fillers, which help return some of the volume to the face that’s been lost and has contributed to the sagging. Fillers can be used all over the face to restore volume, and our nurse injector Kandice can sit down with you and go over exactly which filler is best for your unique circumstances.
