A sharp, defined jawline gives you a more youthful profile. Over time, the skin and underlying structures of the mid and lower face can start to droop. As a result, you may start to notice sagging jowls. Fortunately, you have highly effective, non-surgical options to restore that sculpted jaw.
What Causes Sagging Jowls?
The mid-face and jaw area start to sag as the skin loses elasticity and firmness. Youthful skin produces high levels of collagen and elastin, but these decrease as skin ages. As a result, many of us experience hollow cheeks and sagging jowls. This gives you a squared off face that is a feature of a masculine face. A feminine face should have a more triangular look with higher fuller cheekbones tapering down to a smaller chin. At New York Skin & Vein Centers, we offer a range of jaw-sculpting options. However, we often recommend a thread lift for those with drooping skin.
