It is possible to improve the appearance of jowls by using:
- Dermal fillers
- VASER Liposelection
- The Nefertiti Lift
Dermal fillers such as Emervel, Restylane and Radiesse can all achieve improved jaw smoothness and reduced sagginess by replacing lift in areas where we have lost volume. This is best achieved by performing a Liquid Face Lift, which is a whole face treatment restoring lost volume and support without giving a 'pillow' effect. Results are instant.
Sculptra acts in a similar way to dermal fillers by providing volume and support. However its results develop over a few weeks as it stimulates your own skin to grow more collagen. The results can then last for a few years.
VASER Lipo can be used to remove the fat along the lower jawline and chin and neck. It is a minor surgical procedure performed under local anaesthesia.
The Nefertiti Lift
In some people the neck muscle pulls down the skin along the jawline giving rise to jowls. This unwanted pull can be reduced by injecting Botulinum Toxin (botox) into the neck muscles in minute doses, gently reducing this pull. As a result a smoother jawline can be achieved.
