They look cute on basset hounds and bulldogs, but sagging jowls are not a welcomed change we see in the mirror. A firm, smooth jawline is a sign of health and youth, but changes occur as we age that negatively impact skin laxity and facial volume. Genetics also play a part, so if your mother has a sagging jawline, you probably will too. But before you start staring at your mother wondering what lies in your future, know that sagging jowls aren’t inevitable. With improved advancements in non-surgical treatments, a sagging jawline can be prevented and corrected. Learn how you can defy gravity while delaying or avoiding facelift surgery with our non-surgical treatments.
Sagging Jawline Solutions That Don’t Require a Scalpel
Botox for Jawline Tightening: Nefertiti Lift
Botox, Dysport, and Xeomin can be used to tighten the muscles in the jaw. When injected into the jaw area by a licensed Aesthetic Injection Specialist, the Botox Nefertiti Lift works to slim and firm the jawline.
Dermal Fillers to Lift a Sagging Jawline
Dermal fillers are primarily used to restore lost facial volume caused by the breakdown of natural collagen and fat. Filler treatment helps fill in lines and folds, but a welcomed added benefit is the lift created by the restored volume beneath the skin. Fillers that provide this benefit include those used for cheek enhancement such as Juvederm Voluma and Restylane Lyft and fillers for full face rejuvenation like Radiesse and Sculptra.
Juvederm Voluma for Instant, Long-Term Cheek Enhancement
From Allergan, the makers of Botox, Juvederm Voluma is a first-of-its-kind dermal filler that provides instant cheek enhancement and a lower facial lift with results lasting up to two years. As its name suggests, Voluma adds volume to the face using hyaluronic acid.
Restylane Lyft for Facial Contouring
Restylane Lyft, aptly named for its ability to lift the skin, provides patients with fuller cheeks and a gentle lift to a sagging jawline. From Galderma, one of the most trusted names in dermatology, Restylane Lyft can help you look younger for 12 months or longer.
Sculptra Aesthetic* for Gradual Improvement of Facial Aging
Sculptra is a unique facial filler comprised of Poly-L-Lactic Acid to gradually restore lost collagen. To correct a sagging jawline, Sculptra is strategically placed in the jowls and chin to create a smooth, youthful jawline. Sculptra is also sometimes used for cheek enhancements, which can provide a lift to sagging jowls.
Radiesse for Facial Symmetry
Radiesse is another unique injectable filler that provides long-term results that continue to improve after initial treatment. Radiesse is Calcium Hydroxyapatite (CaHA) based, which stimulates your natural collagen production. With a few strategically placed injections, your cheeks, chin, and jawline can be enhanced for a more youthful look while reducing the appearance of a sagging jawline.
