As we age, it is natural for some facial sagging to occur, particularly beneath the lower jawline where the skin forms fleshy loose folds called “jowls”. This sagging gives the appearance that the jawline has dropped and causes the face to lose some of its definition. Apart from the natural intrinsic ageing of the skin other external factors con contribute, such as sun damage and smoking which accelerate the skin’s ageing progress resulting in the skin losing elasticity and collagen. Those of us with a genetic predisposition are more likely to suffer.
Boost your skin’s collagen content
There are a number of preventative measures you can take to reduce the appearance of jowls. Applying SPF daily limits sun damage to your skin. The regular use of anti-ageing products recommended by your dermatologist or medical aesthetician will stimulate natural collagen production in the skin helping to firm the skin, reducing lines and wrinkles. We can advise you on lifestyle factors and a balanced diet to aid skin restoration. Combining these measures along with treatments like Fusion SLR facials, Regenlite Laser and medical grade facials will provide the most difference to the jowl area and sagging skin.
