As we age, our skin sags and wrinkles start to form. One of the most obvious changes on your face is the weak jawline and sagging jowl. Why does it happen and how can we treat it?
Everyone goes through the aging process. After the age of 20, your body produces about 1 percent less collagen in the skin each year. As a result, your skin becomes thinner and more susceptible to wrinkles and fine lines. Your skin becomes to sag because elastin in your body also decreases with age. With less elastin in your skin, you will notice that your skin is no longer firm and supple.
The aging appearance of the lower far and neck is due to the lack of collagen and elastin production in your body. Fat deposit around the face increases because of insufficient exercise. Jawline disappears and sagging jowls become more apparent. Jowls are the sagging, loose skin in the lower part of the face above the jawline. They form due to the effects of gravity on our skin, together with the loss of elasticity. Jowls make our jawline look irregular, tired and unattractive. This is opposed to the V-shaped facial contour, which is youthful and attractive.
Several non-surgical skin lifting treatments can address weak jawline and sagging jowl. These include Ulthera skin lifting, facial fillers and thread lift to lift sagging skin and improve the overall appearance of the face by restoring your jawline.
