No one’s exempted from facial aging — from forehead lines to crow’s feet to nasolabial folds. Not to mention sagging jowls. No matter how diligent you may be with your daily sunscreen and nightly moisturizer routines, the loose skin on the lower third of the face will make you appear old.
Being jowl-free may sound impossible if you admit that aging is inevitable. However, you can actually delay or further soften the appearance of jowls via the following solutions:
- Liposuction – This is ideal for individuals whose main concern is excess fat in the lower third of the face.
- Facelift – A facelift offers long-lasting reduction in the appearance of jowls. The surgery removes excess skin and tightens the underlying muscles for a more lifted and naturally refreshed appearance.
- Facial Fillers – You can soften the appearance of jowls by adding volume via facial fillers. The filler is injected into the cheeks to somewhat lift the lower third of the face and help maintain facial balance. Fillers such as Juvederm, Restylane, Radiesse, or Sculptra have been shown to create a more sculpted look in the lower third of the face.
