Sagging jawlines, also known as ‘jowls’, is the sagging of skin beneath the chin or jawline. Practically everyone will develop jowls as they begin to age – they result from the loss of proteins like collagen and elastin in our bodies, and more vitally in our skin which they provide with a youthful plumpness. As such, the skin sags beneath the chin. They become less firm and tight, and gravity drags them down.
Luxe Skin’s Dr Q can offer several different and effective non-surgical treatments to handle a sagging jawline. Treatments are minimally invasive and lack the kind of complications that come with more complex, ‘under the knife’ treatments.
Thread Lifts are one of the most innovative approaches to handling sagging jawlines and jowls. Thread lifts involve the use of tiny threads which are placed beneath the skin (either via a syringe or cannula. The threads have tiny barbs or hooks, and these work to pull the skin back. They subtly hold the skin and tissue in place, while stimulating the release of collagen. This works in tandem to increase the ‘tightness’ of the skin and giving it a rejuvenated appearance.
A thread lift treatment is quick and comes with none of the complications of ‘going under the knife’. Only local anaesthetics are required, and the treatment can often take less than an hour to complete.
FaceTite, often call the non-surgical facelift, uses radiofrequency to ‘melt’ fat and tighten the skin. It is commonly used to treat sagging skin. This makes it a perfect approach for dealing with the issue of a sagging jawline, as it can melt the fat while also tightening up the skin.
