As you age, it’s possible that your jawline will begin to sag.
Although many people consider sagging jowls a part of the aging process that they can’t control, you don’t have to give up.
There are a variety of ways to get rid of sagging jowls, some of which don’t require surgery.
What’s the Cause of Sagging Jowls?
Generally speaking, the older you become the more fat you lose in your face and skin collagen content progressively declines. As the volume lessens, everything begins to slide down. This results in more wrinkles, as well as sagging jowls.
Can Facial Exercises Help?
Many people believe that regular facial exercises are the best way to prevent sagging jowls. Unfortunately, since this isn’t an issue related to your muscles, exercise won’t have any impact.
Instead, you need to take action in regards to the loss of volume and elasticity.
Prevention and Correction
It may not be what you want to hear, but sagging jowls occur naturally over time. Even if you do your best to keep your youthful appearance, there’s no way to stop time. As you age and your face loses volume, it’s natural for loose jowls to become a problem.
There are two common ways – unrelated to traditional surgery – to prevent and/or correct sagging jowls:
- Use fillers
- Keep the skin tight, such as with Ultherapy
As noted above, losing volume is the top cause of sagging jowls. So, through the use of fillers, you can add volume to your face, thus reducing the impact of age on this part of your body.
When you combine some form of tightening therapy, such as Ultherapy, with the use of fillers, it’s easier to achieve the desired result.
Will it Work For You?
If you compare your current appearance to the way you looked several years ago, you may find that your jowls are sagging.
In this case, you can use a combination of fillers and Ultherapy to eliminate your sagging jowls and restore your youthful appearance.
