One of the worst things about ageing is the arrival of Jowls.
Jowls are those floppy bulges of skin and fat that hang down below the jawline on either the side of the mouth. They can look great on a puppy but on the human face they are just not flattering.
Jowls become more prominent with age then gravity takes over. First we lose volume from the lower face and then everything falls forward and down. Then our mid-face sags and stacks on top of our lower face sag.
Volume loss comes in the form of bone re-absorption and fat loss. The fat pads of the face of the face start to droop and the skin becomes loose, all adding to the downward pull.
Thanks ageing. Thanks gravity.
To get the best result it’s important to deal with the cause of the Jowls not just the end effect. Treating Jowls requires lifting both the lower face and the mid-face. This creates a natural balanced appearance. Dr. Jodie believes the best approach is to use Dermal Fillers to restore volume loss.
Early intervention is best. In situations where Jowls have become prominent more invasive treatments may be required, such as laser or a suture lift or even surgery.
Dr. Jodie will help you explore your options and formulate a treatment plan tailored to your needs. It’s time to say goodbye to your Jowls and hello to a refreshed and natural you!
