What are sagging face and jowls?

As we grow older, the structure of our face naturally begins to change. The skin can begin to appear more sunken, and our cheeks can begin to descend. This can make the lower part of the face appear saggy.

What causes a sagging face and jowls?

Sagging is simply a natural part of our bodies’ ageing process. Our skin loses its natural ability to produce elastin and collagen, and the pillows of fat that give our skin a plump and youthful appearance begin to diminish and descend. Our skin starts to sag around our upper maxilla and jawline, making our lower face less defined.

What treatments are available?

Although we can never get rid of a sagging face completely without a surgical treatment, there are definitely things that can be done to bring the face up and make it look pumper and more youthful. Often a combination of treatments is  needed to achieve the best results and still look natural.

Dermal fillers can be used in specifically targeted areas to give a natural, fresher and rejuvenated appearance to the face.

Polynucleotide treatment is an innovative approach to improve lines and wrinkles by utilizing naturally occurring DNA fragments to regenerate and repair skin tissue. This non-surgical, minimally invasive procedure enhances skin elasticity, promotes collagen production, and hydrates the skin, leading to a reduction in the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. Ideal for revitalizing aging skin, polynucleotide treatment offers a gradual, natural-looking improvement, making it an excellent option for those seeking youthful, rejuvenated skin without downtime.

Biostimulators are substances used  to stimulate the body’s natural collagen production, improving skin texture and volume. They offer a non-surgical approach to skin rejuvenation, providing gradual and natural-looking results. Advantages include reduced wrinkles, enhanced skin firmness, and a more youthful appearance, with outcomes that can last several years. Unlike traditional fillers, biostimulators work over time to regenerate the skin’s own collagen, leading to long-lasting improvements in skin quality and structure

Are dermal fillers safe?

Dermal fillers are hyaluronic acid-based fillers and have one of the best safety profiles of any injectable treatment, due to their biodegradable nature. They are minimally invasive and safe, if done by an experienced medical professional. As with any procedure, there are possible risks, the most common being post-procedure redness, bruising and swelling. All risks will be discussed on your consultation.

Do dermal fillers hurt?

I do everything I can to reduce discomfort and make the treatment as pleasant as possible. A topical local anaesthetic can be used in the area to be treated before the procedure, and any needles used during the treatment are very small in size. My experience and approach to patient care makes all procedures I do comfortable and safe.

How long do dermal fillers last?

Dermal fillers can last anywhere between three to 18 months. This will depend on the type of filler injected, the amount of filler used, the area of the face being treated and how active it is. It is also affected by how quickly your body naturally breaks down the filler, which will vary from person to person. During our consultation, we can discuss this in detail, taking into consideration your specific needs.

Do dermal fillers have any side effects?

Dermal fillers are minimally invasive and most people can return to their normal life immediately after treatment. However, all treatments pose some risk; the common side effects are redness, swelling and bruising. Allergic reactions are very rare but can occur. If you suffer from cold sores, it’s advisable to do preventive medication before treatment.

Will I look “plastic” or “overdone”?

The answer is no. I am committed to achieving exceptional natural-looking results. During your treatment journey with me, I will listen to your concerns and then use my experience and medical knowledge to create a treatment plan that will suit you specifically. This means you will never look “fake” or “plastic”, while still achieving the results you desire.
