What Causes Saggy Jowls?

As we age, collagen production starts to decrease, causing our skin to loosen and sag. As bony structure reabsorbs, increased laxity of muscle and the shifting of fat pads in our cheeks. Skin will begin to collect along the lower area of the face. This droopy skin is known as jowls.

Saggy jowls are a natural part of aging, but they don’t have to be a permanent part of your life. There are several effective treatments available to help your skin remain youthful, full, and refreshed. One of the best ways to keep your skin looking young and healthy is through dermal fillers.

How Fillers for Saggy Jowls Can Help

Placing filler along the jawline or adding filler in your cheeks can lift your jowls, give your skin a boost, and smooth fine lines around your face. As the filler restores volume into the midface area, the skin will lift from your lower face to give you a more prominent and symmetrical jawline.

A midface liquid facelift can bring dramatic results, almost instantly refining and slimming your facial profile. Saggy jowls will be softened and the skin will be filled out to erase lines and wrinkles. Depending on the severity of sagging, a filler can quickly rectify droopy skin and provide contouring that creates a strong, slim profile.

The Best Fillers for Jowls

Two of the best dermal fillers to help with sagging jowls include:

  • Restylane Lyft: The ingredient combination of hyaluronic acid and water creates a plumping effect when injected under the skin. It works quickly, bringing results within a couple of days of the treatment. It typically lasts one year.
  • Juvederm: There are several different Juvederm products, each designed to target specific areas to promote fuller, lifted skin. Some add volume to the cheeks, while others focus on filling out lines around the mouth and nose. Juvederm Volluma is indicated for the cheeks and is approved to last 1.5 to 2 years.
