How to treat Jowls

Jowls are the nickname for the areas of sagging skin that develop over the jawline. This is caused by the natural ageing process and becomes more prominent from the mid to late 40’s. Collagen is a protein that makes up the connective tissue within the body and elastin is another connective tissue protein that allows the skin to return to its normal shape even after being stretched. As the proteins are lost during the ageing process the cheek skin surrounding your mouth loses its firmness and tightness. As the fat tissue (also known as fat pads) slip down towards the jawline, while the skin loses elasticity, firmness and lack of collagen, resulting in the formation of jowls.

Non-surgical Treatment For Jowls

There are several non-surgical, non-invasive treatment options for treating sagging jowls or reducing how saggy or droopy they appear. HIFU (high intensity focused ultrasound), Cryolipolysis (fat freezing) and Radio Frequency are able to change the composition of the collagen in your skin, and look to remove and/or reduce the appearance of jowls.

HIFU uses focused ultrasound waves to target the deep structure layers of the skin that tightening and produce new collagen. HIFU causes controlled thermal injury to the SMAS and dermis layer of the skin, this results in the bodies natural healing process. This increase the levels of new collagen, resulting in a gentle lifting and tightening of the skin, more importantly around the jawline.

Cryolipolysis or commonly known as fat freezing, can be applied to the chin and jawline, this helps to break down stubborn fat cells and reduces fat tissue within the targeted area. This helps to define the jawline and achieve a more contoured jawline and sculpted face-side profile.

Radio Frequency uses radio waves that heats the skin tissue that signals the body to start producing new collagen in the treated area that is treated. This results in new collagen production and tightening of the existing skin tissue and collagen fibres, thus creating firmer and tighter skin. This treatment is cost-effective and produces noticeable differences around the neck and jawline, and is therefore a great treatment for targeting Jowls.

I could not be happier. Ryan made me feel at ease from the minute we met. I suffer really badly with anxiety and body dysmorphia so this was a very big deal for me. The attention he pays to detail and his knowledge of procedures is out of this world, he's a very intelligent and talented individual. There is literally nothing to worry about!

Rachel Moriarty

Just had my follow up appointment from my HIFU treatment... I am so happy with my results and after care I have received. The team were so warming and helpful and always on hand when I had silly questions to ask! Highly recommend this company!

Jess Williams

My experience at RT Aesthetics was very positive. Ryan explained everything in honest detail and I was made to feel comfortable and less self-conscious! It is early days for me as it is not yet a week since my visit but I am looking forward to positive results.

Tricia Sanderson

I had the cryolypolosis (fat freezing) treatment on my stomach and love handles and have seen such amazing results after only two weeks, even though as standard it is supposed to take up to six weeks for results to show. I will be booking in for the HIFU treatment they offer shortly to target the wrinkles on my forehead and my crows feet and I have no doubt I will be ecstatic with the results.

Elizabeth Major

A huge thanks Ryan for today. I was a bit nervous but more because I needed to get down to my underwear in front of you. You made me feel really comfortable and at ease. Everything was explained really well and I'm really excited for the results and my follow up in 6 weeks.

Maria Sutton

Ryan explained everything very clearly, talking me through each stage of the procedure and made the whole experience very easy and relaxing. He's very professional and conscientious and I have absolutely no hesitation in recommending North East Fat Freezing at all!

Linda Barnes

I attended RT Aesthetics for a consultation after having my second baby girl and in desperate need to get my body back in shape. I have had zero self confidence and wanted to feel better about myself. The staff were so friendly and advised a plan of action for me in a professional way, I felt like the cared. I started on their diet plan and had fat freezing on my abdomen, and I have to say the results have been amazing. I can see that I've I lost my baby weight and my stomach is flatter and I feel like me again. Thank you so much!
