Sagging jowls are a common concern. They can be caused by a variety of factors, including genetics, facial volume loss, weight changes and a loss of collagen and elasticity in the skin.
As we get older, our skin loses elasticity and collagen. Furthermore, the natural fat pads of the midface get thinner, which together with bone resorption results in facial volume loss. These factors can lead to sagging skin, often seen in the lower face as jowls and marionette lines. This can make us look older and more tired than we actually feel.
At Dr Liesel Holler, we offer a range of treatments to address jowls, including injectable fillers, hybrid fillers and energy devices.
Injectable fillers such as Juvederm, can add volume to the areas around the jowls, creating a lifting effect.
Hybrid-fillers such as HarmoniCa® are a non-surgical alternative, which work by stimulating the production of collagen and elastin to lift and tighten the skin.
Biodermogenesi uses electromagnetic energy technology to stimulate collagen production, resulting in tighter, firmer skin.
Treating sagging jowls can be achieved by a range of different procedures, including Juvederm, Hybrid-fillers, and Biodermogenesi.
The treatments are generally well-tolerated and require no downtime.
Treating sagging jowls is a quick and straightforward procedure that usually takes less than an hour to complete.
Results from treatments can last for 12-18 months, depending on the type of treatment used.
Dr. Liesel Holler’s clinic may offer various cosmetic treatments, including sagging jowls treatments. These treatments may include the use of injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, to add volume and contour to the face.
During your first visit to Dr. Liesel Holler’s clinic, you can expect to undergo a consultation with the practitioner to discuss your desired outcome and any concerns you may have.
Dr. Holler will assess your facial structure and recommend a treatment plan that suits your needs. She will also discuss the potential risks and benefits of the treatment, as well as provide you with pre- and post-treatment instructions.
The number of treatments required to achieve your desired results will depend on various factors, including the severity of the volume loss in your face and the type of treatment used.
Typically, patients may require one to two treatments to achieve optimal results, and the effects of the treatment can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months. It’s important to discuss your goals with Dr. Holler during the consultation to determine the number of treatments required.
