Sagging Jowls and Face
Why do we get sagging Jowls? We lose two essential proteins as we age, Collagen and Elastin. Collagen is made of fibres that helps skin maintain its structure and firmness. Elastin gives skin elasticity; it provides tightness and bounce back. Collagen and Elastin production declines as we get older. These two proteins can also become deteriorated by external factors such as UV rays and gravity.
UV rays from the sun break down elastin fibres, causing the skin to sag, stretch, and lose its ability to snap back. It is essential to apply effective sunscreen.
Even moderate UV exposure can damage your skin over time. Choose a good sunscreen.
Jowling is a problem caused by several factors related to gravity, combined with less firm and elastic skin. Fat pads in the cheeks descend to the lower part of the face below the jawline. This results in a heavy lower face and jowls.
A HIFU non-surgical facelift can help to tighten the skin on the face and give a jowl lift to combat these effects.
