The appearance of jowls is one of the most common aging concerns women and men present to COCO Skin Clinic with. Lower face aging signs include the appearance of jowls, sagging skin, double chin, sad or downturned mouth, marionette lines (lines from the corners of the mouth to the chin) and accordion lines (the curved vertical smile lines that appear on the lower cheek region).
The natural aging process results in the loss of collagen and elastin in the skin. There is also a redistribution of volume which leads to the appearance of jowls, sagging skin and double chin. This is further compounded by the loss of bony structure of the jaw, which leads to a ‘blurred jawline’ and loss of a straight, continuous line between the angle of the jaw to the chin. Weight changes can also accelerate this process and lead to undesirable lower face changes.
In recent times, younger patients are also seeking aesthetic treatments to achieve a more well-defined jawline and balanced profile. A strong jawline is a desirable physical attribute in both females and in males.
