The Best Non-Surgical Facelift for Jowls: Transform Your Look Without Surgery

Non-Surgical Facelift for Jowl

Jowls can be a frustrating sign of aging. They make the face appear saggy and detract from a youthful appearance. But before you consider surgery, explore the exciting world of non-surgical facelift techniques! This blog dives deep into jowls, their causes, and the best non-surgical options to achieve a rejuvenated look.

What Are Jowls and Where Do They Appear?

Jowls are those visible bulges that form on the lower jawline, often extending down towards the chin.

They appear due to a combination of factors, including:

  • Loss of soft tissue volume: As we age, our bodies naturally produce less collagen and elastin, leading to a loss of volume in the upper and lower cheeks. This lack of support allows the midface and lower face to sag, creating jowls.
  • Laxity of jaw ligaments and muscles: Over time, the ligaments and muscles that support the jawline weaken. This laxity allows the skin and underlying tissues to droop, contributing to jowls.
  • Descent of jowl fat: There’s a specific fat pad located beneath the skin in the jowl area. With age, this fat pad can descend, further enhancing the appearance of jowls.
  • Loss of bone density: In some cases, bone loss in the jaw can deepen the folds around the jowls, making them more prominent.

Non-Surgical Treatment Options for Jowls:

The good news is that there are several effective non-surgical treatments available to address jowls, depending on the underlying cause:

  • Early Stages (Caused by Fat): Kybella injections, a deoxycholic acid-based injectable, can dissolve fat cells in the jowl area, leading to a sharper jawline.
  • Muscle and Fat Sagging: Radiofrequency (RF) and ultrasound skin tightening treatments use energy waves to stimulate collagen production and tighten the skin, reducing jowl visibility.
  • Movement Wrinkles: Botox injections relax specific facial muscles that contribute to wrinkles and jowl formation.
  • Loose Skin: Thread lifts use absorbable sutures to subtly lift and tighten sagging skin, particularly in the early stages of jowling.
  • Loss of Volume: Dermal fillers plump up areas that have lost volume, restoring a more youthful contour and minimizing the appearance of jowls.

Thread Lift: Optimizing Results and Minimizing Side Effects

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses absorbable sutures to provide a subtle lifting effect, especially for early jowls.

Optimizing Thread Lift Results and Minimizing Side Effects

Combine Tools

Thread lifts can be combined with other non-surgical options for longer-lasting and more comprehensive results. For example:

  • Early jowling: Threads + RF or Ultrasound tightening
  • Below-neck sagging: Botox neck lift
  • Volume loss: Fillers for chin, marionette lines, and jawline
  • Fatty jowls: Kybella injections

Improved Technique

A skilled practitioner can significantly improve thread lift outcomes by using techniques like:

  • Precise marking
  • Local anesthesia
  • Pre-tunneling undermining
  • Blunt insertion
  • Deep placement in static areas like jowls and in front of the ear
  • Avoiding dynamic areas like cheeks, lips, and brows
  • Post-procedure massage by the surgeon
