Improving Your Jawline And Jowls

In terms of volume, the lower third of the face is prone to age-related accumulation of fat. Although jowls are more due to excess skin, the appearance of sagging can be alleviated by strategically adding volume. A filler like Radiesse or your own fat can help contour the jawline and create a more chiseled, youthful look in some patients.

A facelift, on the other hand, works differently in that it moves the loose skin and underlying tissues up to improve the appearance of this area and produce a significant, longer-lasting correction. Adding volume at the time of or after surgery can also refine the results of a lifting procedure.

    The lower third of the face and the underside of the chin tend to be a bone of contention for most of my mature clients. This area, due to gravity and genetics, has a tendency to fall faster than other parts of the face. This past year, I found a product that all of my celebs are now raving about. Perfect Form by Beauty Society, $64.50 www.beautysociety.com. This aggressive multi-peptide sculpting cream remodels the neck, chin, jowls and décolleté. 4% Matrixyl 3000, Eyeliss and Toniskin will target tissue producing cells to enhance firmness, improve the sculpted effect and reduce slacked skin. I believe this may be the strongest and most effective toning and firming crème on the market today. Try this product...they back it with a one year guarantee!

    Personally, I have seen wonderful results with Sculptra for strategically adding volume to improve the jowls, jaw line area for a more youthful chiseled look. Sculptra lasts much longer then other fillers (3-5years) and if you're not ready to take the plunge of a chin implant, or even more frightening for some, a face lift, it is a fabulous alternative. I have especially seen wonderful results for the lower half of the face with Sculptra that treats loss of volume (skeletonization) which occurs with normal aging.
