Sagging Jowls? How to Lift Your Jawline Without Surgery
Not going to lie, seeing puppies and dogs with their cute saggy faces is pretty cute, but a sagging face is definitely not something anyone wants to see on themselves, especially if your 20’s or 30’s.
While jowls are an inevitable part of ageing, treating jowls without the need for expensive (and painful) surgery has never been easier, thanks to beauty advancements in innovative technologies.
What exactly are jowls?
Jowls are small pockets of tissue (subcutaneous fat) that begins to sag below the jawline, this happens as the lower muscles in our cheeks start to lose strength and volume. As the fat pockets drop, it creates the appearance of an undefined jawline and has a soft/loose appearance. Jowls become present as we age.
Three main causes of jowls
Reason #2: Genetics and Skin Type - genetics and skin are another key cause to consider when it comes to jowls, when they’ll start to appear and how noticeable they’ll become. For skin types that are naturally thinner, or produce limited amounts of collagen and elastin, you may notice jowls can develop earlier in life.
Reason #3: Lifestyle - Our lifestyle can also impact jowls. From overexposure to UV to our daily nutrition, there are an array of our everyday lifestyle habits can accelerate the appearance of jowls. Diets that lack the correct nutrients, antioxidants, and chronic dehydration, can impact our organs, glands and of course our skin.
Studies reveal overexposure to UV radiation increases the development of reactive oxygen species (ROS), once these reach higher concentrations levels, they can damage the two main proteins that make up the skin: collagen and elastin. With reduced collagen and elastin, this can lead to the formation of jowls.
