Jowls

Jowls or double chins can be a result of a hereditary predisposition or due to excess fat or water stored in the tissue. As we age, we lose muscle strength in our face, collagen levels start to deplete and the skin begins to lose its elasticity. This causes the skin to sag and wrinkles to start forming. Repetitive facial expressions can also play a role in the development of jowls, together with lifestyle and environmental factors such as diet, exercise and sun exposure.

Jowls have the ability to change the shape of an individual’s face and can cause a person to look (and often feel) older than their years.

There are several treatments to help combat jowling, which can help restore definition and rejuvenate the facial appearance including surgical procedures such as liposuction and facelifts and non-surgical options like Ultherapy.
