Facial Sagging & Jowls

Facial sagging can affect all of us to varying degrees as we start to age. Our self image is often one of the motivating factors behind us seeking facial aesthetic treatments. When we age, there are two main proteins naturally found in the skin that begin to depreciate.

Facial sagging can affect all of us to varying degrees as we start to age. Our self image is often one of the motivating factors behind us seeking facial aesthetic treatments. When we age, there are two main proteins naturally found in the skin that begin to depreciate. These proteins are collagen and elastin. When the production of these proteins starts to slow down, this weakens the structure of the skin and stops the features from holding their more youthful form.

As well as the slowing in production of collagen and elastin, we also lose natural hydration as well as a reduction in our natural fat pads.

About this condition

Slack or sagging skin under the jawline is typically associated with the term, jowls. Because of the inevitable loss in volume, hydration and elasticity as our skin starts to age, the mid and lower face are particularly vulnerable to changes, one of which is the formation of Jowls.

The essential proteins and the connective tissues are what keeps our skin taught and play a large part in its ability to bounce back, therefore when the fatty deposits gather beneath the jawline and weigh the skin down, this causes the appearance of ‘hanging’ in the lower face.

A less commonly known contributing factor is that our bones that form the facial structure also begin to shrink, and therefore the ‘scaffolding’ that once supported our draped skin starts to betray us.

At Nassif MedSpa we use dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections to help restore lost collagen, improve elasticity, plump and hydrate the skin; gently lifting and tightening the jawline so as to diminish the appearance of jowls and aid in tightening facial sagging.

By replacing the substances that once helped to support a firm skin structure, the heavy look of jowls and sagging skin can be reduced.

Highly recommend Nassif Med Spa! The staff are super helpful and knowledgeable, the skin care products are excellent (I love their SPF) and their laser treatments are fast and effective. The service was great and the communication was so kind and efficient. If you can get an appointment when lockdown is over you won't regret it! The ladies there are amazing :)

I have recently just finished 3 treatments of Fractional Laser at the MediSpa and I can't believe how much my acne scars have improved!!Amanda and Louise were INCREDIBLE!! So welcoming and encouraging, answered any concerns I had and ensured that the I was confident going forward with the treatments.Yesterday I had my final treatment and I'm back in 4 weeks for a review and to compare the photos we took before. I know without evening seeing though how much my skin has improved through compliments people have made and when applying makeup (it's so smooth!)The MediSpa is beautiful, clean and covid safe!!Thank you!! x

Great spa facility in a good location, which was also very clean and took all Covid-19 measures seriously. Amanda did my treatment and was really friendly, as were all staff I spoke with on the day. My skin is looking great and I have received many comments about how my acne scarring has significantly reduced. I definitely recommend this clinic to anyone looking to book.

I felt in safe hands from the first moment I spoke toRae at Nassif Medical Spa. I had originally enquired about a different procedure. I was advised honestly and professionally and told that I would not be a good candidate for the first procedure and that a different procedure would procure much better results. The spa itself is an absolute joy to behold, an opulent setting. The staff were warm and welcoming putting me at ease immediately. The doctor spoke in depth about the procedure I had and informed me of the results I could hope to gain. He made sure I was happy to proceed before starting treatment. I am absolutely delighted with the results. I keep being told that I look amazing and questioned if I’ve changed my hair.. only I know the real secret!

I did a lot of research on clinics before choosing the Nassif Med Spa for my treatment. What attracted me the most is the fact that my treatment would be carried out by healthcare professionals and I like the less is more approach. After my consultations it was very clear that they understood my wish to look like a better version of myself rather than a totally different person. The team were so kind, considerate and discreet. The communication was excellent and the clinic is beautifully fitted out. I felt very comfortable from start to finish. I would highly recommend the Nassif Med Spa to anyone. I love my lips, thank you so much!

Nassif MedSpa is a stunning place, the girls who welcomed me last Sunday where lovely and really put me at ease before my treatment. My appointment with Dr Harris was amazing, he is very reassuring calm and explains everything in great detail. It was great experience from the moment I walked through the door and will definitely be back.
