Jowls

While certain signs of aging give us character – like laugh lines around the eyes – we are hard-pressed to find redeeming qualities for other signs of aging like the loss of firmness and tone along the jawline.

 


Visible Effects

As gravity, genetics and effects of the sun take hold and our skin loses its resilience and firmness, a once defined jawline can be compromised by dips and bulges. Typically, this change is the result of our degrading skin structures, fat, skin tissues and muscle descending and forming what we call ‘jowls.’

Underlying Causes

Jowls are caused when degrading collagen and elastin fibres fail to support the subdermal fat that helps support and create the youthful structures of our facial contours. This process happens over time due to both extrinsic factors (aging triggered by sun exposure and lifestyle choices) and intrinsic factors (aging determined by our genes).


Solutions

The aging process is a reality no one can escape however, it can be managed quite effectively to help you look as good as you feel. As a centre dedicated to aesthetic dermatology, laser and facial cosmetic surgery, Cutis is particularly equipped to remedy loose skin with ideal outcomes. Possible treatment approaches may include Belkyra™, Thermage® CPT, Ellman Pelleve, Facial Fat Transfer, face lift surgery and dermal fillers. Subtle facial contour concerns will be treated differently than cases of elastosis and in some instances, more than one treatment method will be implemented to yield optimal results. Addressing loose skin and jowls with the appropriate techniques provides more youthful, resilient skin, which in turn renews and reinvigorates self image. Cutis invites you to schedule a professional consultation to determine which approach is best suited to your skin condition.
