What causes a sagging jaw line and how can we treat it?
A sagging jawline is often a result of skin laxity within the area. This occurrs as a natural part of ageing where collagen is lost resulting in the reduction of skin firmness. Extreme weight gain and loss can also have an effect due to stretching the tissues within the area. Similarly to this, a build up on fat under the chin and jaw line can contribute to the appearance of a sagging jawline.
But what can we do?
Jaw line filler - filler can be placed along the jaw line to mask the appearance of sagging skin.
Radio-frequency - This procedure penetrates the deepest layer of the skin to give a lifting effect.
Dual high - using high intensity focused ultrasound to give lifting to the skin.
Coolsculpting - fat removal for under the chin
Aqualyx - for fat reduction in localised areas.
