Gradually as we age, we may develop jowls, a double chin and crepey neck due a reduction in skin collagen and downward movement of facial fat pads. We can restore your facial contour, skin quality and reverse the affects aging. We can enhance your chin and jawline, this may be particularly beneficial to those with a genetically small chin. We will tailor our treatment to provide the best result for you.
Jowls is the name given to the loose skin and fat that accumulates on the lower part of the face, causing the jawline to soften and sag. Droopy jowls create heaviness to the lower face and disruption to the line of the jaw.
Marionette lines take their name from marionette puppets. These lines run from the corners of the mouth down to the chin and resemble the mouth of a puppet to create a ‘jowly appearance’. These lines are caused when the skin loses elasticity due to ageing, fat pads descend, and skin volume decreases.
Drooping along the jaw line and jowls is a common problem which often occurs in conjunction with a loss of facial volume. It can make you appear older than you are, and people may perceive you as unhappy.
Reduction in natural fat pad volume along with downward migration of the fat pads due to loss of collagen results in a drooping aged face.
If you are unhappy with the shape of your chin and would prefer it to be more square or pointed and do not wish to undergo invasive surgery, then dermal filler may be the ideal non-surgical solution for you.
We also offer correction of the overall appearance of a recessive, under-formed chin to help boost self-confidence.
Neck muscles can start to enlarge and clump together as we age, resulting in the appearance of thick, tight cords known as platysmal bands. In slender patients, these tightened muscles can pull on the lower face exacerbating the appearance of jowls. By placing botox injections into to these overly tight muscles, we can smooth the appearance of the bands and reduce the downward pull on the jowls.
