for Jowls & Sagging Face
Saggy jowls and a drooping face are common signs of aging that many individuals wish to address. These changes in facial structure occur due to various factors, including the natural aging process, gravity, collagen and fat loss, sun exposure, smoking, and other environmental factors. Genetics, hormonal shifts, and significant fluctuations in body weight can also contribute to the formation of jowls.
Non-Surgical Facelift for Jowls:
While surgical facelifts are considered the gold standard for treating sagging lower faces, non-surgical facelift procedures offer a safe and effective alternative for those who prefer to avoid surgery. These non-invasive treatments provide excellent results without the risks, complications, extended downtime, and costs associated with surgical facelifts.
Non Surgical Facelift Treatment
A Multi-Targeted Approach:
At The Marr Clinic, we employ a multi-targeted approach to achieve remarkable non-surgical facelift results. Our approach includes:
A personalized skincare regimen featuring alpha hydroxy acids, Vitamin C, retinoic acid, and depigmentation agents to reduce fine wrinkles and pigmentation irregularities. Regular use of moisturizers and sunscreen is essential. We also encourage quitting smoking, minimizing exposure to environmental pollutants, maintaining a healthy weight, and optimizing hormone health, especially for female clients in peri-menopause or menopause, who may benefit from hormone level optimization.
We use anti-wrinkle injections to relax muscles that contribute to facial sagging. Muscles like the DAO (depressor anguli oris) responsible for pulling down mouth corners and the platysma muscles of the neck that pull down the jawline can be weakened. By reducing the pull of these downward muscles, the upward-pulling muscles in the cheeks and lower face become more dominant, resulting in a lifted appearance.
Our clinic offers two types of volumizing fillers to address patients' unique needs.
Hyaluronic acid-based fillers, which naturally occur in the skin, draw moisture to the treated areas, providing immediate volume. Hyaluronic acid fillers can enhance the cheeks, nasolabial folds, marionette areas, lips, brows, tear troughs, jawline, and chin, effectively rejuvenating the entire face.
Bio-stimulating fillers containing CatA (Calcium hydroxyapatite) microspheres stimulate collagen production for an extended period, typically up to 18 months.
This treatment involves a specialized blend of high and low molecular weight hyaluronic acid, designed to stimulate collagen and elastin production in the skin. By enhancing skin elasticity and combining the volumizing effects of dermal fillers with anti-wrinkle injections to reduce the downward pull of platysma bands on the jawline (Nefertiti lift), we achieve a noticeable "lift" in the lower face area.
Skin Resurfacing Treatments:
Skin resurfacing procedures including chemical peels, laser treatments (such as Clear and Brilliant and V laser), LED light therapy, skin micro-needling, platelet rich plasma injections. These procedures improve the skins of skin aging and promotes collagen growth.
