WHAT ARE YOUR JAWLINE CONCERNS?
There are several factors at play when addressing jawline concerns. Some people face issues with submental (under the chin) fat, while others may see sagging skin or loss of bone structure and definition. All of the above can be caused by aging and/or genetics or weight gain. Regardless of the cause there are treatment options available!
SAGGING SKIN & JOWLS:
The main cause of sagging skin in the lower face is age. The skin loses collagen and elasticity and the fibres break down causing skin to sag. Another effect of this can also include the formation of jowls. Jowls are partly caused by sagging skin and also by localized fat deposits. The lack of tensile strength in the skin around the mouth leads to creases and folds, pulling this skin down, while residual fat situates itself along the borders, accentuating the negative contours even further.
FAT UNDER THE CHIN:
Most people think that fat under the chin is caused by lifestyle or weight gain, however this condition is often also attributed to genetics and aging. In any case, submental fat forms under then chin and reduces the natural jawline contour and chin definition. Fat alone may not be the only issue with fullness under the chin. Weak skin also adds to the sagging effect by failing to keep skin tight and your natural fat pad “tucked.”
WEAK JAWLINE CONTOUR:
As we age our bones deteriorate. We not only lose fat volume in our face but our bone structure actually begins to diminish over time, leading to a sunken, hollow look. This natural age-related loss of volume and bone loss can start presenting itself as early as your late 30’s and early 40’s. You may notice your jawline is not as defined as it used to be. This could be caused by bone loss.
