The term jowls pertain to the appearance of excess skin and fat along the lower jawline. If you are experiencing facial sagging along the jaw, we have many treatment options at Derma Revive Skin Clinic. Read on to learn more about loose skin on the jowls and how we can help.
When it comes to jowls, various treatment options can address this sign of ageing. Jowls are pretty much inevitable at one time or another due to the ageing process. The encouraging news is that a facial sagging treatment can help with most of the causes. There are also non-invasive treatments that help to disguise and minimise the appearance of jowls and make them appear less noticeable. Which treatments would work best for you would depend on the severity of your jowls.
At Derma Revive, we take pride in providing multiple treatment options to our patients. Many options give you the best chance of finding the right treatment and successfully treating jowls. If you want a non-surgical treatment, options that stimulate collagen production may be a good place to start.
So, what exactly are jowls? Jowls are defined as being the portion of loose, sagging skin along the lower edge of the jawline. It’s a fact of life that as we age, skin and other bodily tissue will start to become looser. The tissues in the jaw and cheeks are no exception. As your facial muscles in this area start to lose volume and strength, the skin stretches and will begin to gravitate downwards, giving rise to the formation of jowls.
The causes of jowls are likely to be a combination of multiple internal and external factors. The main reason will be due to a deterioration in the amount of collagen and elastin in the facial tissues, leading to the skin losing elasticity.
Saggy jowls may be seen in those who gain weight and patients exposed to excessive sun exposure, smoking, and alcohol. Your genetic predisposition will also affect the development of jowls too. Your diet may play a part in the formation of jowls. Other causes include rarer conditions that give the face a fuller appearance, lifestyle factors, and weight loss.

If you are looking for a more even skin tone and skin texture,reduced skin laxity, want to reduce scars, stretch marks or pigmentation and achieve rejuvenated, radiant skin, the magical RF Microneedling could be the perfect treatment for you.
Our clinic offers a comprehensive range of non-surgical treatment options for jowls. These include Facetite, a treatment that uses radio frequency to lift and address sagging jowls. It is an effective alternative to traditional surgical procedures, such as a facelift, without long downtime. Morpheus8 is another highly regarded device that utilises radio frequency combined with micro-needling to stimulate skin protein production. RF Microneedling is yet another effective treatment that stimulates collagen production within the skin tissue.
Facetite involves lifting, offers results similar to a surgical facelift, and uses radio instead of laser energy to treat sagging jowls. Other concerns and treatments, such as a double chin and a non-surgical neck lift, can also be tackled with this device. It is an alternative option to injectables such as dermal fillers, Botox injections, thread lifts, and other non-surgical treatments, including laser treatment. It also comes with minimal downtime.
Another device that utilises the power of radio frequency is the widely renowned Morpheus8 device. It uses another well-regarded technique to aid in collagen and elastin production – microneedling. It works to boost skin elasticity in the lower jaw and is an extremely effective treatment. It is said to be on par with alternative surgical procedures. Deep layers are targeted to create elasticity in the jowl area. It is often cited as the best non-surgical treatment for many conditions.
The treatment is another weapon in our army to fight early signs of sagging jowls. Again, new collagen is stimulated within the skin tissue. Connective tissues need collagen and elastin fibres. All sagging jowl procedures revolve around the process of stimulation and regeneration.
All of these procedures are designed to help replace vital proteins that the skin loses over time. As they promote the production of a naturally occurring substance, there is a low risk of reaction. They are all fantastic alternatives to a traditional surgical procedure such as a facelift. All technology used is FDA-approved.
The best treatment for this common concern is ascertained after a thorough consultation. We look closely at your medical history, the extent of your jowls, and whether this is your first treatment to attempt to tackle the issue. How much facial sagging and facial fat is present are among other factors
