What are jowls (jawline)?
With time, sun damage and age, the facial skin and tissues drift downwards. As the cheeks drop, the skin around the jawline falls down creating a dent or hollow between the jowl and chin. This is affectionately known as the pre-jowl sulcus. Once the skin has sagged to this extent, several non-surgical modalities will be needed to create a satisfactory result.
What can be done?
Uplift procedure involves thick dermal filler injected in front of the ear to create lift and tighten the jowl skin.
Luxlift will apply thick dermal filler to augment cheeks and tighten jowl skin.
Nefertiti lift-botulinum toxin (e.g. Botox Cosmetic) is injected around the jaw line and to the neck band or platysma muscles. This relaxes the jowl line muscles which then sit flat against the bone and help define the jaw line, thereby producing a sleek, well defined jaw line and neck, reminiscent of Queen Nefertiti in ancient Egypt.
Skin tightening with the Thermage CPT will see some redefining of the jawline with results seen in 3-6 months and lasting for years.
