Jowls / Sagging Cheeks
We know that as our skin ages, it begins to lose some of the compounds which help keep its shape; specifically fat and the connective tissue proteins, collagen and elastin. It also becomes drier and thinner, which makes it difficult to maintain its form.
When we notice this loss of volume around our cheeks, the skin sags and falls to the chin and jawline, forming what we know as ‘jowls’. Several factors can contribute to how quickly and how prominently we develop these sagging cheeks, including sun exposure, diet, smoking or chronic alcohol consumption, and even excessive motions such as talking on the phone!
Whatever the reason is for your sagging cheeks, the experts at Skinfidelity can help. Our team will consult with you to see whether your skin is more suited for dermal fillers, microneedling, or a combination of both. Fillers are used to restore volume and plump up the sagging cheeks, whereas microneedling helps the skin boost its own collagen production.
