Forehead lines and wrinkles are the horizontal lines that you may see running across your forehead. They first start to appear around the age of 20-30 and are just a typical sign of ageing that is common in the majority of people.
Jowls Treatments at The Cosmetic Skin Clinic
Jowls are the sagging pads of skin that develop around our jawlines and cheek areas as we age. Our skin becomes loose and less elastic over time in this area, causing it to look thin, saggy and drooping.
As we age, our faces lose volume and develop a jowl-like appearance due to a loss of collagen, elastin and fat supports. Women especially can lose bone density after the menopause and lose fat in the cheeks and temples – which normally help the face retain structure. This aggravates the jowls formation process, causing the chin and neck areas to lose their youthful sense of definition.
Cosmetic surgery is an expensive option to reduce flabby and sagging skin on the lower half of the face. However, there are several successful non-invasive neck and jowls treatments to tighten and contour a turkey neck and jawline that do not require downtime. At your initial consultation, we’ll discuss the most effective and suitable non-surgical jowl lift options for you.
Hyaluronic acid fillers are one of the top treatments to minimise the appearance of jowls. They reboot the skin’s supply of hyaluronic acid, a key substance that maintains skin elasticity, strength and plumpness. We can combine this treatment for jowls with anti-wrinkle injections to freeze muscles around the neck and jawline. The fillers will then re-plump the cheeks, while the anti-wrinkle injections prevent the skin from sagging. The result is a lifted and tightened look that immediately restores vitality to the skin.
The Ultherapy® for jowls treatment can help with skin laxity evident as jowls and is the leading ultrasound non-surgical lifting procedure. It uses focused ultrasound imaging to stimulate the growth of new collagen deep within the skin.
Thermage® CPT is a safe, non-invasive radiofrequency (RF) technology that treats these conditions and is clinically proven to help smooth, tighten and to re-contour the skin with long-lasting results with little to no downtime.
Some patients may suffer from excess fat tissues around the jawline, which can make jowls look more pronounced. With our CoolSculpting Mini treatment, we can reduce areas of excess fat around the jawline to give this area a sleek and slender look. We can then lift and revitalise sagging skin using supplementary techniques like fillers to minimise the appearance of jowls.
Silhouette Soft Threading is a leading facial rejuvenation treatment that is also known as a non-surgical facelift. Jowls can be transformed with this treatment thanks to its collagen-stimulating effects. It redefines and adds volume to the skin with immediate results, and combats the sagging and volume loss that leads to jowl formation.
