Facial Sagging / Jowls

Our skin experts at Light Touch Clinic specialises in the safe and effective treatment of facial sagging/jowls.

About Facial Sagging (Jowls)

A strong structure that contains high levels of collagen & elastin ensures the skin is firm & full in appearance, with the ability to bounce back to its original form. As we get older, the body goes through a series of changes that affect the structure of the skin causing it to weaken. When combined with environmental factors, genetics and lifestyle choices, the aging process can accelerate. This combination often leads to facial sagging & jowls.

Collagen acts as the skin’s natural filler, as well as helping to maintain the skin’s firm and tight form. Elastin, as its name suggests, is the protein responsible for the stretchy properties that enable the skin to work like elastic, stretching and contracting as required. When these two substances are in decline and sagging skin starts to develop, the skin can hang around the jawline – a term referred to as jowls.

Improving the appearance of facial sagging & jowls can be achieved through the use of non-surgical, non-invasive treatments that work to tighten the skin, re-contour the features and restore youthful properties to the skin. Light Touch Clinic specialises in offering treatment to reverse the signs of ageing and revive your skin’s appearance, book a consultation with us today to find out more.

To naturally address jowls, focus on maintaining a balanced diet rich in nutrients and staying hydrated. Incorporate facial exercises targeting the jawline and cheeks to improve muscle tone and protect the skin from sun damage with sunscreen.

While these methods may offer some improvement, consider professional treatments here at Light Touch Clinic for more significant results.

Yes, genetics can play a significant role in the development of jowls. Individuals with a family history of sagging or drooping skin in the lower face may be more predisposed to developing jowls themselves.

Genetic factors can also influence the structure and elasticity of the skin, as well as the distribution of fat and muscle tone in the face.

Additionally, inherited traits may contribute to the rate at which collagen and elastin are produced in the skin, affecting its firmness and resilience over time.

Yes, certain lifestyle habits can contribute to sagging facial skin. Sun exposure, smoking, poor nutrition, and inadequate skincare can accelerate the breakdown of collagen and elastin fibres, essential for skin elasticity.

UV radiation damages collagen, while smoking reduces blood flow and impairs collagen production. A nutrient-poor diet can also impact skin health.
