What exactly are jowls?

Jowls are pretty much inevitable at one time or another due to the ageing process. Defined as the portion of loose, sagging skin along the lower edge of the jawline, jowls are a natural part of ageing. As we age, our skin and other bodily tissues, including those in the jaw and cheeks, start to lose their firmness. This is due to the facial muscles losing volume and strength in these areas, causing the skin to stretch and sag downwards, forming jowls.

The causes of Jowls

What causes jowls? The development of jowls can be attributed to a mix of internal and external factors. A key reason is the reduction in collagen and elastin in the facial tissues, resulting in skin elasticity loss. Factors such as weight gain, excessive sun exposure, smoking, and alcohol consumption can exacerbate the issue. Genetic predisposition, diet, and other lifestyle factors, as well as certain rarer conditions that affect facial appearance, can also contribute to the formation of jowls. Gravity does not help, either.

The Impact of Jowls on Self-Esteem

The appearance of jowls, or sagging skin around the jawline, can significantly impact an individual’s self-esteem. This age-related change, often viewed as an unwelcome sign of ageing, can lead to feelings of dissatisfaction with one’s appearance. This dissatisfaction can manifest in reduced confidence, reluctance to socialise, or even avoidance of certain social situations. It’s important to remember that it’s not vanity to want to look and feel your best. At The Doctors Laser Clinic, we understand these concerns and are committed to helping you regain your confidence.
