Jowls are sagging, excess skin on the neck, that appears to be hanging from the chin. Most women and men will experience jowls, to some degree, as they get older and skin loses elasticity.
Fortunately, Ultherapy offers patients a non-surgical solution to mild to moderate skin laxity on the face, neck, and chest.
So, should you consider Ultherapy to rejuvenate your face?
Continue reading to learn the causes of jowls and how Ultherapy can help you achieve a more lifted and youthful appearance.
What Causes Jowls?
Aging is the number one cause of jowls. That’s because the skin’s supply of collagen and elastin, the two proteins responsible for elasticity, become depleted over time. The degradation of these building blocks then compromises the skin’s internal support system and results in laxity and wrinkles.
Other factors that can contribute to the formation of jowls include genetics, weight loss, smoking, frowning, UV light, looking down, stress, and poor hygiene.
What Is Ultherapy?
Ultherapy is a non-surgical skin tightening treatment that’s FDA-approved to lift skin on the neck, chin, and brow, and improve lines and wrinkles on the décolletage. Accordingly, the treatment is a safe and effective way to rejuvenate your face and improve jowls, without incisions, anesthesia, or downtime.
How Can Ultherapy Rejuvenate Your Face?
Using focused ultrasound technology, Ultherapy precisely heats specific layers of the patient’s skin that are lacking structure and support. This then creates controlled thermal damage that stimulates the production of new collagen and elastin to lift, tone, and firm loose and sagging skin.
Depending on the size and number of treatment areas, an Ultherapy procedure can take 30-60 minutes and requires zero downtime.
Additionally, just one Ultherapy session is needed to rejuvenate your face and combat jowls. Within one-to-two months, patients can expect to see visible lifting, increased thickness to their skin, a softening of edges, restoration of youthful contours, and disappearance of their double chin.
Final results are usually revealed by six months, and treatment benefits can last one-and-a-half-to-two years.
