How to Get Rid of Jowls | Facial Skin Treatments | The Body Clinic

How to Treat Jowls

Jowls are the nickname for the areas of sagging skin that develop over the jawline. This occurs as part of the aging process and they become more prominent from the mid to late 40s.

The fat pads in our cheeks slip down towards the jawline and at the same time, your skin loses its elasticity and firmness. This leads to jowls forming caused by a loss of structure in the skin.

Factors to consider

Factors to consider about the service Image

Natural Aging – As your facial structure changes, levels of Elastin decline and Collagen is production slows down, our skin is less able to snap back onto the contours of the face. This allows gravity to take over and for your cheeks to sag and blur your jawline, becoming ‘Jowls’.

Genetics – early onset of jowls can be attributed to a heredity link, if your parents have them, you are more than likely predisposed to their development.

Smoking – Smoking stops oxygen and essential nutrients from reaching the skin, leaving it dehydrated. This, in turn, will make the appearance of lax skin more apparent.

UV Exposure – Sun exposure is known to be one of the main causes of accelerated aging. Sun exposure depletes the levels of collagen you can produce and breaks down its effectiveness. This leads to a loss of structure and speeds up the formation of Jowls.

Weight loss – When we are carrying more weight, our faces can appear firmer and more ‘plump’. Loss of weight can lead to loss of volume in your face and cause the loose skin, that has been overstretched, to sag and form Jowls.


Treatments available for Jowls

We have 3 treatments that can successfully help to improve the appearance of the jowls. In some cases, we may recommend a combination of two or more of these treatments to enhance your results.

Exilis Elite Skin Tightening

The Exilis Elite emits heat into the skin using a powerful form of Radiofrequency. When tissues are heated this signals the body to start producing new collagen in the treated area, thus creating firmer and tighter skin. This is excellent for targeting Jowls.

HIFU Non-Surgical Face Lift

HIFU uses ultrasound to target the deeper structures of the skin. By causing a controlled thermal injury, deep into the SMAS and dermis, it kick-starts the body’s healing response. This increases the levels of collagen in the skin, leading to a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin, especially around the jawline.

Fat Freezing

Fat Freezing can be applied to the chin and jawline to help reduce fat tissue in this area which can help to define the jawline and achieve a more sculpted side profile.
