Do you hate your jowls and sagging neck! None of us likes to see our jawline uneven. 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
Jawline sculpting and contouring is up and coming in popularity. It was the hottest treatment in 2017 #jawlinedefinition and #jawlinecontouring. Have you ever wondered what the secret is to stunning model-esque bone structure? Facial contouring and jawline definition can do amazing things for your appearance. It can make a person’s facial features look more balanced as well as improve facial outline. Individuals with square jawline, slight jowling or receding chin can take advantage of jawline contouring. Ideal jaw line angle for women is 110-120 degrees. For men a more erect angle at 100-110 is ideal. Contouring dermal fillers are used for this procedure. These include Radiesse, Juvéderm Voluma and Resylane Lyft.
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™, Radiesse™, and Ellansé™. These dermal fillers are biodegradable semi –solid medical compounds that can be injected underneath facial lines to plump the skin.
8 Point Softlift
More recently, this European innovation has been mastered by the Dublin Cosmetic Clinic in 2008. A technique called the 8 point 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 supported upwards. Sometimes the 8 point Softlift play a cardinal role in jawline definition and contouring.
New VASER liposuction technology using targetted ultrasound energy, can be used to remove excess fat and shrink wrap the overlying skin to 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.
