How To Get Rid Of Jowls With Fillers


As we age, we lose the collagen, which gives our skin the impression of plumpness and facial volume and provides the ‘scaffolding’ under our skin. The result is sagging loose skin around the lower jawline and chin, which causes heavy jowls. Can you get rid of jowls with fillers? Yes, fortunately, there is something we can do to help with the appearance of jowls using dermal fillers. In this article, our award-winning aesthetics practitioner & clinic founder, Amish Patel, explains how fillers can address jowls and the non-surgical procedures we use for effective treatment.

Does Everyone Get Ageing Jowls?

Everyone will see a degree of sagging in the lower face as they age. The loss of collagen and decline in elastin cause the skin to lose elasticity and firmness to mid-face volume, and the downward pull of gravity can also contribute to the development of jowls. However, genetics, lifestyle, face shape, rapid weight loss, or weight gain can impact how noticeable these become as we age and how significant our collagen levels are.

Are Jowl Fillers Right For Me?

To answer this question, you need to book a consultation with a qualified injector who can assess your skin and discuss your treatment goals. They will be able to determine if fillers are the right treatment option for you and customise a treatment plan based on your specific needs. In extreme circumstances of excess skin and loss of skin elasticity, a thread lift or surgery may be the only viable options. Hence why, a face-to-face consultation for facial rejuvenation is imperative in the first instance.

How Do Jowl Fillers Work

Dermal fillers are injectable gels placed into the deeper layers of the dermis. They are designed to restore lost volume and stimulate collagen production. There are many different types of fillers. At our Longfield Aesthetics Clinic, we only use hyaluronic acid dermal fillers because they are a naturally occurring substance in the body that helps plump and hydrate the skin. They also carry less risk and complications than other collagen-stimulating fillers and are easily dissolved if required. This combination of hyaluronic acid fillers, along with careful placement, can dramatically affect the face, helping to reduce the impression of droopy skin and saggy jowls in a single treatment. Getting rid of jowls with fillers can be achieved in expert hands.

Targeted Areas For Jowls

While dermal fillers can be strategically placed along the jawline and combined with chin filler to provide support and fill in areas of volume loss, careful placement of nasolabial folds and cheek filler to the midface and even in the temple area can help improve the lower face dramatically. This multi-injection approach can help minimise the appearance of jowls and create a more defined and youthful jawline.

Fillers for jowls vary from client to client but involve injecting fillers into the targeted areas using a fine needle or cannula. Before the treatment, we will apply a topical numbing cream to the areas where you will have your dermal filler treatment to help minimise any discomfort. The entire process typically takes around 30 minutes to an hour, depending on the extent of treatment needed. Sometimes, we may recommend a combination of filler treatments to achieve the desired results alongside skin tightening treatments such as PRP or Profhilo.

Jowl Filler Results And Recovery

Jowl lift dermal filler results are visible immediately, although some swelling or bruising may occur initially. These side effects should subside within a few days. The effectiveness of filler results can vary depending on factors such as the type of filler used and the client’s age, lifestyle choices and metabolism. Instant lift results can last anywhere from six months to a year or even longer.

You can return to most normal activities after the treatment. Post cosmetic treatment clients should avoid facial massage, hot showers or steam rooms and intensive cardio exercise to allow your filler treatment to settle.

Maintenance Of Jowl Filler

Follow-up treatments will be required in the future to maintain your youthful appearance. We will advise you on the recommended frequency of touch-up sessions. These are based on your specific needs and with the longevity of fillers in mind. Topping up your filler injections means you are helping to maintain firmer skin. Maintenance supports the production of collagen while helping to avoid any jowl-like appearance returning.

Jawline Filler Considerations & Precautions

Before getting fillers, it is essential to inform your provider about any medical conditions, allergies, or medications you are taking. Additionally, ensure that you choose a reputable and experienced professional to perform the procedure. While jawline filler is a non-surgical facelift, it still carries some risk. Choose an experienced injector working out of a safe clinical environment.

Alternative Jowl Treatments

As explained earlier, injectable fillers alone may not address severe jowls. Treatments like threads or surgical procedures, such as a facelift or neck lift, may be recommended. In conclusion, dermal fillers can be an effective non-surgical option for reducing the appearance of jowls. Jawline filler can create a more youthful appearance. Fillers can help create a more defined and youthful ‘snatched’ jawline and get rid of jowls by restoring lost volume and promoting collagen production.
