Facial Sagging / Jowls

When we are in our youthful prime, so is our skin. A strong structure that contains good levels of collagen and elastin ensures the skin is firm and full in appearance, with the ability to bounce back to its original form. As we get older, the body goes through a series of internal processes, which change the structure of the skin and cause it to become weak. This can lead to a common concern associated with the ageing process - facial sagging and jowls. Combined with this, environmental factors, genetics and certain lifestyle choices can help to accelerate the rate at which the ageing process takes effect.


When ageing causes sagging skin on the face, it can affect the eyes, chin, jowls, cheeks and neck. During the ageing process the production of collagen and elastin start to slow down and muscles and fatty deposits diminish - the main reason that skin sags.
Collagen acts as the skin’s natural filler, as well as helping to maintain the skin’s firm and tight form. Elastin, as its name suggests, is the protein responsible for the stretchy properties that enable the skin to work like elastic, stretching and contracting as required. When these two substances are in decline and sagging skin starts to develop, the skin can hang around the jawline - a term referred to as jowls.

Improving the look of facial sagging and jowls can be achieved through the use of non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that work to tighten the skin, recontour the features and restore youthful properties to the skin. Light Touch Clinic has the following treatments available for tightening the skin: Exilis elite contouring, ULTRAcel skin tightening and INTRAcel. Whereas dermal fillers and Aliaxin facial fillers can strengthen the look of the jawline. Through a complete facial assessment, carried out during a pre-treatment consultation, a suitable procedure can be recommended that will best suit your individual needs.
