DR. MARIETTE STEYN

Dear Dr. Steyn,

I’ve noticed my jowls have gotten worse over the last couple of years. I’m in my early 60’s but don’t want surgery (yet). Can fillers help? Thanks, Susan.

Dear Susan,

Thank you for your question.

Yes, we can improve the appearance of jowls (sagging skin around the chin and jawline). The solution is to restore volume in the mid-face and other key areas to create structure and lift sagging facial anatomy.

The aging process is very complex. By the time jowls are visible our face has lost collagen, natural fat pads and also bone structure. Many people don’t realize that bone loss, or rather bone shrinkage, in the face contributes to looking older, more sunken and developing loose skin. The solution is to address skin aging on all these levels in order correct and restore vital facial structures. Once we do that, the jowls start to look less prominent and noticeable.

Here’s a typical treatment plan I would recommend for someone with jowls and sagging skin around the lower face:

  • Stimulate collagen to improve overall skin quality and appearance. Our clients love TriBella Total Rejuvenation treatments for firming and plumping without downtime.
  • Volumizing Swan Lift combines anti-wrinkle injections such as BOTOX® with dermal fillers like Juvederm®. By expertly administering injectables to key areas of the face we’re able to restore more youthful contours, lift sagging skin and dramatically improve the appearance of jowls and sagging skin.
