How to Prevent and Treat Jowls

What are Jowls?


Jowl refers to a pocket of tissue which has sagged below the jawline. Everyone is liable to getting jowls to some extent as they age. Jowls become apparent as the skin becomes thinner and elasticity is lost.



How to Prevent Jowls


1. Avoid smoking.


Smoking causes blood vessels to narrow and makes it harder for the body to circulate nutrients to the skin.


2. Apply sunscreen daily.


Overexposure to ultraviolet rays in sunlight can damage the collagen in your skin. This can cause your skin to sag earlier.


3. Limit your screen time.


Try to keep your head at a natural, comfortable angle when using a computer or phone to prevent skin from getting bunched up, avoiding the term 'tech neck'.


Non-Surgical Options for Treating Jowls


Radiofrequency Microneedling can be used to tighten the skin around your chin and jawline.


This treatment is also known as collagen induction therapy because it's known for boosting collagen production within the skin, which makes it effective for treating jowls.


Radiofrequency Microneedling is proven to lift and tighten loose skin. It can be performed up to six times a year to ensure that the collagen in your skin stays, helping to keep your skin tight.
