Jowls and Jawline

Jowls cause a heaviness of squaring of the lower face and this leads to an aged appearance.

Volume loss in the face begins in the thirties and continues throughout life. Volume loss predominantly occurs in the midface or cheek area but also occurs around the mouth and jawline.

As the cheeks lose volume there is less support to hold up the lower face. The cheeks also descend as we age over time and this exacerbates loss of support in the lower third of the face. The combination of these factors leads to the formation of jowls along the jawline. It also causes the face to look saggy and tired.

This lady as had the area in front of her jowls injected with dermal filler to straighten the jawline. This reduces the appearance of heaviness and sagginess in the lower face and produces a more attractive, feminine appearance.

Solution

Dermal filler can be used to soften the appearance of jowls. A thick, long lasting filler is recommended. The filler can be strategically placed in the areas of volume loss along the jawline to give a sharper, more defined jawline. It is usually necessary to also replace volume loss around the cheek area to address this problem completely and ensure a natural, harmonious appearance.

There are some important nerves and arteries that run along the jawline and it is vital that this area is injected by a practitioner that is familiar with the anatomy of the face.

Sometimes fillers alone are not enough to obtain the desired result. It may be necessary to utilise skin tightening treatments such as laser or threads for optimum results. Sometimes a face lift is necessary to adequately correct this issue.

Longevity / Treatment Regime

Initially a minimum of two syringes of thick dermal filler is required. There may also be the need for further syringes to treat cheek volume loss as midface volume loss preceeds jowl formation. It is recommended that the area is reviewed every 6 months for further injections until optimum volume replacement is achieved. At this point further treatments are generally required every 12 months but results may last for up to 18 months.
