Do you hate your jowls and sagging neck! None of us likes to see sagging jowls along our jaw line. A smooth clean jaw line and neck creates a fit youthful look to the face. As we age, our facial skin loses elasticity and we begin to see a fold of skin along the jawline below the mouth, commonly called the jowl. The line running from the corner of our mouth to the jaw and jowl is called the marionette line, because the line looks like the line beside a puppets mouth.
• Skin Laxity-As our skin ages it loses elasticity and the skin along the jaw line begins to sag.
• Loss of Facial Volume-As we age or facial fat atrophies, the face is less full, and the skin envelope becomes lax and sags.
• Repeated Mouth Movements-Smiling and facial expressions pull at the corner of the mouth and create a fold or line over which sagging facial skin can fall. Above the mouth this fold is called the nasal labial fold. Below the mouth the line is called the marionette line-also called the pre-jowl sulcus.
Traditionally jowls have been removed by performing a face lift. More recently new non-surgical methods have also been developed and provided by Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic, Dublin
The facelift is still the “gold standard’ for jowl removal. A properly done face lift can create a beautiful youthful jaw line.
Minimally invasive approach to suspending the jowl area. A minimally invasive facelift procedure performed with little or no recovery time.
At Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic, Dublin and Nationwide we provide Liquid Face Lift-Soft Lift tissue volumisation using dermal fillers such as Restylane™, Juvederm™, Emervel, Radiesse™, and Perlane™. These dermal fillers are biodegradable semi –solid medical compounds that can be injected underneath facial lines to plump the skin.
More recently, this European innovation has been mastered by the Dublin Cosmetic Clinic. A technique called the liquid face lift is used to inject these soft tissue filers into areas of the face which have lost fat. By increasing the volume in these areas the sagging skin can be lifted.
AntiLax Skin Tightening
AntiLax machine delivers infrared laser and modulated bi-polar radiofrequency energies to tighten the skin aroun the jowl and neck areas. Skin Tightening is completely non-surgical non invasive technology. The AntiLax technology tighten skin by heating the collagen in the deeper skin layers. When the collagen is heated to 64 degrees centigrade, the skin collagen contracts and the skin tightens. Tightening with AntiLax method gives a substantial 20-30%, and is most effective on younger patients with early and mils skin laxity and early sagging.
New VASER liposuction technology using targetted ultrasound energy, can be used to remove excess fat and tighten neck skin and skin along the jaw line. The VASER procedure is performed at Castleknock Cosmetic Clinic, Dublin under local anaesthesia. Early jowls and double chin can be successfully removed and tightened with this technique.
