The dreaded jowls: they creep up on most people at some point, and they can have a devastating effect on our self confidence. But what can you do about them?
Most people aren’t interested in (or can’t afford to have) facelift surgery to reverse the appearance of jowls. Luckily, there is a far more cost-effective option available: dermal fillers for jowls.
Why do we get jowls?
As we age, our skin naturally becomes less elastic and gets thinner. Natural proteins called collagen and elastin keep our skin firm and smooth, but as we age these proteins start to decrease.
Towards most people’s late thirties or early forties, gravity starts to take its toll and jowls can start to appear. The onset of jowls can have an ageing effect on your face and a negative impact on your confidence.
Another cause of sagging facial skin is significant weight loss. If you have lost a lot of weight, your facial skin may be left looking saggy and lacklustre.
Which is a great shame when you’ve worked so hard to get back down to a healthy weight.
Do dermal fillers work on jowls?
Yes, absolutely. Dermal fillers are a great way to replace the collagen that your skin has lost and restore plumper, more youthful skin.
The treatment is gently injected into the affected area and its natural antioxidants and hydrating qualities provide instantly smoother skin.
And the best part about dermal fillers is that they can be delivered in next to no time, meaning you can get straight back to living your life and enjoying compliments on your refreshed appearance.
The effects of dermal fillers are just noticeable enough, so you’ll enjoy all the flattery with none of the raised eyebrows and awkward questions that a facelift can attract!
Dermal fillers for jowls: before and after
When you arrive for dermal filler treatment on jowls, you’ll probably be feeling a bit flat and very fed up. Looking older than you feel can have a massive impact on your daily confidence.
But after professional dermal filler treatment, you’ll have a fresh spring in your step and a more youthful appearance.

How long do dermal fillers last?
Dermal fillers to reverse the appearance of jowls can last for up to 12 months. The results of dermal fillers are instant, but you’ll see the full effects after approximately 10 days as they continue to work their magic.
Are there side effects to dermal fillers?
Some people experience a little swelling and redness, but these side effects only last for around 10 minutes so you can get straight back to your daily schedule.
Bruising after dermal fillers is extremely rare, but in the unlikely event that you do experience a touch of bruising, it can be easily covered with concealer.
Overall, dermal fillers are very safe and reliable and leave no side effects, providing you choose an experience consultant to deliver your treatment.
Will I need pain relief for dermal fillers?
We can’t speak for every clinic but certainly at Look Lovely London, we work hard to administer dermal fillers as gently as possible.
Dermal fillers contain local anaesthetic so you’re unlikely to experience any pain at all. If you’re worried about feeling the needle going in, we can apply a numbing cream to the area.
Following treatment, we can also provide you with an ice pack to apply to the area if you’re worried about redness or swelling.
