The Age Giveaway

A patient of mine came in last week and heard a plastic surgeon on the show “The Doctors” say that no matter how much Botox or how many facials a woman had, he could always tell her age by her jowls.

When people refer to the jowl area they are referring to the area that begins to give in to gravity at the jaw line.  Usually this is skin that has lost its elasticity and begins to droop slightly.

The point that the surgeon was trying to make was that the lower half of the face is a difficult area to treat without a facelift to remove or tighten that loose skin.

If there is enough loose skin, then a facelift or an In Office Facelift is the treatment of choice, but if the degree of laxity is mild then dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Perlane can be used to augment the jawline in order to give the jawline back its smooth and strong appearance.

Come in and make your consultation appointment to see how these procedures can help you look more youthful and refreshed.
