What causes neck bands and saggy jowls?
As we age, our face begins to lose volume and elasticity. This is a natural part of the ageing process, and happens to both men and women, but it can result in the appearance of sagging neck bands and jowls. The sagging around these areas is generally caused by overacting muscles that pull down the jaw. This can have a noticeable impact on your overall appearance, however we can reduce the appearance of the sagginess with a non-invasive treatment with no downtime.
How can neck bands and saggy jowls be treated without surgery?
At his cosmetic clinic on the Sunshine coast, Dr Hugo Pin can use injectable muscle relaxant to improve the appearance of jowls and smooth neck bands. What this does is relax the muscles that are pulling down the jaw and cause the sagging effect. Relaxing these muscles helps to greatly reduce the appearance of neck bands and jowls. This treatment requires no down time and can often be performed in the space of a lunch break. The effects of the treatment will become noticeable over the days and weeks following the procedure, and a patient will begin to see the full effects in approximately two weeks.
You can also combine this treatment with some of our other treatments, such as our Exilis technology and dermal fillers, to strategically replace volume to certain areas which can lift and revitalise your entire look.
