Can Cheek Fillers lift jowls?

By Dr. TRACY MOUNTFORD, MBBS MBCAM

Are you looking for a non-surgical way to lift your jowls and restore a youthful appearance? In recent years, the popularity of cheek filler treatments has surged, thanks to its remarkable ability to not only lift sagging jowls but also address nasolabial folds and marionette lines.

While jowls are a normal part of the aging process, they can be a source of self-consciousness for many individuals, prompting them to seek cosmetic treatments to address this downside of aging and restore a more youthful appearance. In this blog post, we will delve into the world of cheek fillers, addressing common concerns and providing you with the information you need to make an informed decision.

Why do Jowls appear?

Jowls appear as a natural consequence of aging and the gradual loss of collagen, elastin, and fat in the skin and underlying tissues. Over time, these structural changes lead to reduced skin elasticity and firmness, causing the skin around the jawline and lower face to sag.

Additionally, the structural foundation of our face, comprised of the facial bones supporting muscles, fat, and skin, also undergoes a process of recession. The effects of gravity, ageing and repeated facial expressions collectively contribute to the overall unfortunate decrease in firmness and sagging leading to the development of jowls.

How can Cheek Fillers Lift your jowls?

Cheek fillers can effectively lift jowls by restoring volume and support to the mid-face area. As we age, the cheeks can lose their natural fullness, leading to sagging skin around the jawline. By strategically injecting hyaluronic acid-based fillers into the cheeks, a skilled practitioner can add volume and create a lifted, more youthful contour.

This added volume not only lifts the cheeks but also provides support to the lower face, reducing the appearance of jowls. The result is a harmonious and rejuvenated facial profile that combats the effects of gravity and aging, without the need for invasive surgery.

Can cheek Filler also treat Nasolabial Folds and Marionette Lines?

At The Cosmetic Skin Clinic, we don’t just focus on one part of your face when it comes to a treatment. We assess the face as a whole. That’s why when it comes to treating the jowls, we factor in other aspects like the nasolabial folds and marionette lines to create a lifted result.

Cheek Filler when injected into the cheeks adds volume and restores elasticity. This added volume can have a cascading effect, lifting the jowls, which in turn reduces the appearance of nasolabial folds and marionette lines. By restoring structure and support to the mid-face area, cheek fillers can create a more youthful and harmonious facial profile.

6 top Cheek Filler questions

Below are a few of our top questions we receive from patients during our consultations, all answered for you:

1.    Can Cheek Filler migrate?

We know this is a concern many first time filler patients have, and we can reassure you that when filler is administered by a skilled and experienced practitioner like our team, the risk of filler migration is extremely minimal. Modern dermal fillers are designed to stay in the injected area and provide long-lasting results. It is important to always choose qualified and experienced practitioners to avoid medical complications.

2.    How long after Cheek Filler can I exercise?

We recommend avoiding any strenuous exercise for 24-48 hours. This is just to help reduce any possible risk of temporary swelling and bruising. Gentle activities such as walking is fine. As always, please follow your practitioner’s post-treatment instructions for the best results.

3.    How much Cheek Filler do I need to lift my jowls?

The amount of cheek filler required varies from person to person and depends on factors such as your individual anatomy and the severity of jowl sagging. During your consultation, our expert practitioner will assess your specific needs and recommend the appropriate amount of filler to achieve the desired lift and contour keeping you looking refreshed.

4.    How long does Cheek Filler take to settle?

Its normal for cheek filler to take up to 2 weeks to fully settle. During this time, any initial swelling or bruising should resolve, leaving you with a more natural and refreshed appearance.

5.    Will Cheek Filler make my face rounder while trying to lift my jowls?

Cheek filler is a versatile treatment that can enhance facial contours and provide a lifted appearance. When administered by an experienced practitioner, it should not make your face rounder. In fact, cheek filler can be strategically placed to create a more defined and sculpted look, while still addressing jowl sagging.

6.    Is Cheek Filler safe?

Cheek fillers are considered safe when administered by trained professionals. Since they are made from hyaluronic acid, a substance naturally found in the body, the risk of allergic reactions is minimal. However, like any medical procedure, there can be side effects, such as swelling or bruising, which are usually temporary.
