As you age, your body produces less collagen. Collagen provides the critical structure that keeps skin tight and youthful. This loss of collagen allows the skin to become slack, and gravity pulls the skin downward and forward. One of the areas this loose skin is most noticeable is around the jawline and lower face. This droopy skin is called sagging jowls, and many people believe the only solution to this problem is surgery. This is a myth, as early intervention for sagging jowls allows for effective nonsurgical treatments to restore natural looking and youthful jawlines.
Nonsurgical Interventions for Sagging Jowls
A consultation with the medical team at Creative Dentistry & Medspa can determine the degree of jowl formation and select the best nonsurgical sagging jowls treatment for you. While one treatment method may provide the results you are seeking, it is not uncommon to use a combination of treatment options for superior outcomes.
Options for nonsurgical sagging jowls treatment include:
- PDO thread lift to lift the sagging jowls, neck and lower face and encourage new collagen growth.
- Fillers to restore volume beneath the skin, which plumps hollowed areas, creating a uniform and smooth jawline.
- Fractional lasering to rebuild the collagen in lax skin and provide an overall youthful glow.
- Botox® to relax other facial wrinkles and neck bands, to ensure a uniform appearance following jowl treatment.
- Chemical peels to even skin tone and remove fine lines and skin imperfections.
PDO Thread Lift for Superior Results
As a minimally invasive procedure, a PDO thread lift provides exceptional results for sagging jowls. Also known as absorbable suture suspension, the results are similar to a facelift, but without the surgery. The PDO threads are placed under the skin and lifted upward, carefully positioned for a natural and youthful appearance. As your skin dissolves the PDO threads, the results are not permanent; however, the threads encourage the formation of new collagen, which improves the tightness and texture of your skin while the threads lift and shape the lower face and neck. Fine lines and wrinkles are also reduced, and a thread lift can also target the eye area for a complete rejuvenation.
