Jowl Droop And Tightening Sagging Skin
Looking for a non-surgical jowl lift to lift sagging skin? As cosmetic doctors, one of our most popular requests at our cosmetic clinic is to get rid of jowl droop. If you have started to see your jowls slowly drooping and are wondering what causes droopy jowls or when it starts, read on for some insights. As we age some of us may start to lose the firmness of our skin and develop sagging jowls and the sudden appearance of marionette lines.
The loss of collagen (the skin’s main structural protein) with age along with a decrease in facial fat pads result in volume loss from your jowl area and usually result in jowl formation and the loss of jawline definition. There are non-surgical methods for restoring the tightness of skin around the jowls by lifting sagging skin with PDO thread lifting or replacing the volume with fillers. We use thread lifting rather than fillers because the aim is to lift and tighten the skin rather than add further weight with fillers. This is the best non-surgical procedure to achieve natural jow lift without the risks of facial lift surgery or potential scarring from surgical facelifts. La Luna is one of the most experienced clinics in this field as our non surgical cosmetic doctors and have successfully carried out hundreds of thread lift procedures over the past decade.
What Is The Jowl?
The Jowl is basically the lower part of the cheeks area. Jowl droop becomes more evident with age or facial weight loss and usually starts to droop as we get older.
What Are Marionette Lines ?
Marrionette lines are crease lines that run from the end or corners of the lips or mouth down to the chin. This is also part of the area together with the lower cheek area which is lifted to restore a youthful appearance.
This whole facial area over our growing age starts to droop from facial actions, stretching of skin when smiling, laughing and gravity forcing fat pads down as well also aids in jowl droop. The main driving factor however is the loss of collagen which is the protein in the skin that holds our tissue tightly. The effectiveness of the thread lift is that not only does it physically lift tissue it also stimulates new collagen for tighter skin.
