What Are Jowls?

Jowls are the sagging skin around the lower face and jawline. This is a common and progressive condition that affects people as they get older as a person ages the collagen in the skin will start to break down causing the skin to lose elasticity. At this point gravity takes over and the skin sags.

While jowls are commonly a natural sign of the aging process, the development may be accelerated by factors such as overexposure to the sun and smoking. Jowls can be improved with medical procedures. See our treatment video for more information.
