Jowls, the sagging skin along the jawline, can be a common concern amongst the patients I see in Esher, Surrey. While surgical procedures like facelifts are sought after for jowl correction, many individuals are reluctant to go under the knife or simply can’t afford the cost, increasingly patients are turning towards non-surgical treatments.

In this blog post, we will explore various non-surgical treatment options, including Dermal Fillers, Botox, energy-based devices, and Endolift, to address jowls effectively and without the need for surgery.

  1. Dermal Fillers for Jowl Rejuvenation: Dermal fillers, such as hyaluronic acid-based injectables, have gained popularity as a non-surgical solution for jowl correction. By injecting fillers strategically along the jawline, lost volume can be restored, providing a lifting effect. This helps to reduce the appearance of jowls and restore a more youthful contour. The results are immediate and can last anywhere from 12 to 18 months, depending on the product used and individual factors.
  2. Botox for the Neck and Jawline – Botox, a neuromodulator, can also be used to address jowls. This technique, often referred to as the “Nefertiti lift,” can provide a non-surgical solution for sagging jowls. Botox in injected into the platysmal bands along the neck which reduces their pull and can help improve jowls. The effects typically last around 3 to 4 months, after which further treatments may be needed to maintain the results.
  3. Energy-Based Devices for Skin Tightening – Energy-based devices, such as radiofrequency (RF) microneedling, and ultrasound technologies, offer non-surgical options for tightening jowls. These devices deliver targeted energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening. RF devices, like Thermage and Morpheus 8, and ultrasound treatments, such as Ultherapy, can improve the appearance of jowls by lifting and firming the skin. Results may vary, but they can last up to a year or longer with proper maintenance.
  4. Endolift: Minimally Invasive Jowl Treatment – Endolift, also known as laser-assisted facial contouring, is a minimally invasive procedure that utilizes laser technology to address jowls. It involves inserting a tiny laser fibre beneath the skin, which helps tighten the tissues and stimulate collagen production. Endolift provides immediate results with minimal downtime and offers a longer-lasting effect compared to some non-invasive treatments. Results can last for up to 2 years, depending on individual factors.

In conclusion, surgical procedures like facelifts are not the only option for correcting jowls. Non-surgical treatments have significantly advanced, providing effective alternatives that can help rejuvenate the jawline without the need for invasive surgery. Dermal fillers, Botox, Energy-based devices, and Endolift offer various approaches to address sagging jowls and restore a more youthful appearance.

When considering non-surgical treatments, it is crucial to consult with a qualified Medical Professional who can assess your individual needs and recommend the most suitable approach. Results may vary for each person, and maintenance treatments will be required to sustain the desired outcome.

So, if you are interested in addressing your jowls without surgery, explore these non-invasive options and discover the potential they hold for achieving a more youthful and contoured jawline.
