Jowls are characterised by sagging skin and the formation of loose, fatty tissue along the jawline. While ageing is the primary culprit, various factors contribute to the development of jowls. Fortunately, advances in cosmetic procedures, such as dermal filler treatments, offer effective solutions to address this concern.

Signs of Jowls

Recognising the signs of jowls is crucial for individuals seeking cosmetic interventions. Common indicators include:

  1. Sagging Skin: As collagen and elastin production decline with age, the skin loses its firmness and elasticity, leading to sagging along the jawline.

  2. Loss of Jawline Definition: Jowls can cause the once well-defined jawline to appear less sharp and more rounded.

  3. Formation of Folds and Wrinkles: Fatty deposits can accumulate in the lower face, resulting in the development of folds and wrinkles around the mouth and chin.

  4. Reduced Skin Tightness: A decrease in skin tightness contributes to the downward displacement of facial tissues, accentuating the appearance of jowls.

Causes of Jowls

Several factors contribute to the formation of jowls, and understanding these causes can aid in prevention and treatment. Key contributors include:

  1. Ageing: The natural ageing process leads to a decline in collagen and elastin production, causing the skin to lose its elasticity and firmness.

  2. Genetics: Genetic predisposition can play a significant role in determining an individual’s susceptibility to jowls.

  3. Sun Exposure: Prolonged exposure to harmful UV rays can accelerate skin ageing and contribute to the breakdown of collagen and elastin.

  4. Lifestyle Choices: Unhealthy lifestyle habits, such as smoking and poor nutrition, can contribute to premature ageing and the development of jowls.

Who is Likely to Get Jowls

Jowls are a common occurrence in individuals over the age of 40, although genetics and lifestyle factors can influence their onset. Those with a family history of jowls may be more predisposed to developing them, and individuals who engage in habits that accelerate ageing may experience the effects sooner.

Dermal Filler Treatment for Jowls

Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based injectables, offer a non-surgical and minimally invasive solution for addressing jowls. These fillers work by replenishing lost volume and restoring youthful contours to the face. The treatment is quick, with minimal downtime, making it an attractive option for those seeking facial rejuvenation without surgery.
