Sagging Cheeks


Discover treatments for jowls, such as Sculptra, Botox, Dysport, Restylane, and Juvederm. Targeting the face, jawline, and skin, these options aim to tighten and lift sagging skin, reducing the appearance of jowls for a more youthful and defined facial contour.

Face Jawline Skin

As we age, the prominence of jowls—excess or sagging skin along the jawline and neck—can increase. To address this, Direct Aesthetics offers treatments combining wrinkle relaxers and dermal fillers.

Areas commonly targeted for jowl treatments encompass the lower face, jawline, and neck, where excess or sagging skin is most conspicuous. Utilizing neurotoxin injections like Botox and Dysport, along with dermal fillers such as Sculptra, Restylane, and Juvederm in specific zones, Direct Aesthetics can effectively tighten and elevate the skin, leading to a refined jawline and improved neck contour.

What are jowls?

Jowls refer to the sagging or drooping skin that hangs along the lower jawline and under the chin. Excess skin along the jawline and below the cheeks are typically caused by a loss of skin elasticity and collagen as a result of agin. Sagging of the area fundamentally alters the naturally crisp contour of the chin and the jawline transition into the upper neck.

As the facial skin and fat pads begin to droop, the area along and below the chin becomes distorted, giving the face a heavy appearance.

What causes jowls?

Before delving into the treatment options, it’s essential to understand what causes jowls. Jowls typically develop due to a combination of factors, including age-related collagen loss, decreased skin elasticity, and gravity’s pull on facial tissues

As individuals age, the natural loss of collagen, which aids in maintaining the skin’s firmness and elasticity, often results in some degree of jowling. This sagging occurs as gravity exerts its pull on the skin over time. Besides the effects of aging and gravity, various other factors can contribute to the acceleration of jowl development:

  • Fat loss: Significant weight loss and the resulting loose skin can contribute to the formation of jowls. Additionally, age-related fat loss in the face can cause remaining fat pads to shift downward, pulling the skin with them.
  • Muscle and bone loss: Over time, muscles may lose their ability to fully support facial fat and skin, while bone density loss, commonly occurring after age 35, can also play a role.
  • Lifestyle choices: Poor habits such as excessive sun exposure, smoking, or frequent weight fluctuations can exacerbate the development of jowls by compromising skin health and elasticity.

How to get rid of jowls?

Dermal fillers, commonly made of hyaluronic acid, offer a non-surgical approach to addressing jowls by restoring lost volume and providing structural support to the lower face. Unlike invasive surgical procedures, filler injections are minimally invasive and require little to no downtime, making them an attractive option for individuals seeking facial rejuvenation.

The Treatment Process

At Direct Aesthetics, the treatment process for addressing jowls with fillers starts with a consultation with one of our qualified healthcare providers. During this initial appointment, your provider will carefully assess your concerns, examine the area of concern, and discuss your desired outcome. Based on this assessment, a personalized treatment plan will be developed to achieve optimal results tailored to your unique needs and goals.

On the day of the procedure, the treatment area will be cleansed and numbed with a topical anesthetic to ensure comfort during the injections. Using a fine needle or cannula, the filler will be strategically injected into the targeted areas along the jawline to restore volume and contour the jawline. The entire procedure typically takes around 30 minutes to complete, and patients can resume their normal activities immediately afterward.

Results and Maintenance

Following the filler injections, patients can expect to see immediate improvement in the appearance of jowls, with further enhancement over the following days as the filler settles into place. Results typically last anywhere from 6 to 18 months, depending on the type of filler used and individual factors such as metabolism and lifestyle.

To maintain the results, patients may opt for periodic touch-up treatments as needed. Additionally, adopting a healthy lifestyle, including proper skincare and sun protection, can help prolong the effects of filler injections and promote overall skin health.

At Direct Aesthetics, we understand that jowls can greatly affect your confidence and self-esteem. However, they don’t have to be a permanent concern. Thanks to advancements in aesthetic medicine, fillers provide a safe and efficient solution for tackling jowls and restoring a more defined and youthful jawline.

If you’re considering filler treatments to address jowls, it’s essential to consult with us. Together, we can discuss your options and create a personalized treatment plan tailored to your specific needs and goals. Say goodbye to jowls and hello to a rejuvenated appearance with our fillers for jawline contouring.
