The sagging skin and flesh along the lower jawline and under the chin that can contribute to an aged or tired appearance


What Are They?

Jowls refer to the sagging skin or flesh that hangs along the lower jawline, often giving the appearance of excess fat or a double chin. Jowls can be a cosmetic concern for many people, but there are various treatment options available to help improve their appearance, including surgical procedures such as a facelift or non-surgical treatments such as injectable fillers or radiofrequency therapy.

What Causes Them?

Jowls can be caused by a combination of factors, including loss of skin elasticity and collagen, gravity, genetics, and lifestyle factors such as smoking, sun exposure, and a poor diet. As we age, the skin and underlying tissues on the face naturally lose elasticity, causing them to sag and droop. Gravity also plays a role in the development of jowls, as the downward pull can cause skin and tissue to accumulate along the jawline. Genetics can also contribute to the development of jowls, as some people may be predisposed to storing excess fat in the lower face.


What Can You Do To Help Naturally?

There are natural ways to help reduce the appearance of jowls. These include performing facial exercises, maintaining a healthy diet, staying hydrated, protecting the skin from the sun, and massaging the skin and underlying muscles along the jawline.


Can jowls be treated without surgery?

Yes, there are non-surgical treatment options available for improving the appearance of jowls, including injectable fillers and radiofrequency therapy.

Are facial exercises effective in reducing the appearance of jowls?

Facial exercises can help improve muscle tone in the face and neck, which can reduce the appearance of jowls over time. However, like working any other muscles, these exercises must be performed regularly and consistently.

How can I prevent jowls from forming?

Preventing jowls from forming can be achieved by maintaining a healthy lifestyle, such as keeping a balanced diet, staying hydrated, avoiding smoking, avoiding excessive sun exposure, and using skincare products that promote skin health and elasticity.

Can weight loss help reduce the appearance of jowls?

Weight loss can sometimes help reduce the appearance of jowls, especially if excess fat is a contributing factor. However, in some cases, weight loss can actually make jowls more prominent by causing loose skin to sag. Therefore, we would recommend a course of treatment in conjunction with weight loss to ensure the latter doesn't happen.

Can jowls be hereditary?

Yes, genetics can play a role in the development of jowls as some people may be predisposed to a particular face shape or storing excess fat in the lower face, or they may have naturally looser skin.
