Woman about to receive jowl surgery


Jowls is a term often used to describe the sagginess of the skin under the chin and around the neck area. It is a condition that is usually caused by ageing as the skin softens and loses its elasticity, causing the skin to begin to droop. The primary cause of jowls is the loss of collagen and elastin from the skin. These are the proteins that help keep skin firm, so as the production of these proteins slows down with age, skin becomes looser.

Other causes for jowls include lifestyle choices, including smoking and large amounts of sun exposure which are significant causes of collagen breakdown, leading to further sagging. Physical habits include looking at your phone or computer screen, which causes your neck to bend and lead to jowls.

With Aesthetic Skin Clinic, there is no need to worry about jowls. Our cosmetic skin clinics across Belfast, Jersey and Guernsey offer a range of treatments that can help reduce the effects of jowls and rejuvenate your skin.


Neck Lifts

If you are looking for a surgical cosmetic treatment to reduce the appearance of jowls, our neck lift surgery in Jersey and Guernsey is the ideal solution. This procedure involves incisions underneath the chin and on either side of the ears. In doing this, we can remove excess skin and fat and the remaining skin tightened, which effectively eliminates jowls. This technique is said to be the most successful in removing jowls, and so if you are looking for an effective solution, a neck lift is the answer.


Vaser Liposuction

Another surgical option for removing jowls is vaser liposuction. This treatment is a fat removal treatment that works by dissolving fatty deposits using a Vaser probe. It also works by heating the collagen and elastin proteins, resulting in contracting and the skin tightening around the neck and jawline. This successfully removes the appearance of jowls and is a less invasive treatment than a neck lift.

Anti-wrinkle Injections

We can use anti-wrinkle injections to help minimise the appearance of lines and wrinkles. The injections provide a refreshing solution to give your face a subtle lift in restoring areas affected by jowls, making you look younger and rejuvenated. In addition, the skin is tightened on injection, which removes the excess sagging from the chin and neck area. At Aesthetic skin clinic, we offer anti-wrinkle treatments in Belfast, Jersey, and Guernsey as part of our non-surgical treatments. An advantage of anti-wrinkle injections is that they provide a low pain method with no recovery time required, making them an easier choice for those who cannot afford the recovery time of a surgical procedure.


Dermal Fillers

Dermal Fillers use hyaluronic acid, the chemical responsible for water retention in the skin. When injected into the affected areas, the fillers re-volumise the skin. As a result, they counteract the ageing process by adding fullness to your face, which helps to give the appearance of lifted skin. Similar to our anti-wrinkle injections, this method is a relatively pain-free process. However, unlike a surgical procedure, this solution requires topping up every couple of months. We offer dermal fillers in Northern Ireland, Belfast, Guernsey and Jersey at Aesthetic Skin Clinic.


Aqualyx Fat Removal

Unlike surgical fat removal procedures such as Vaser liposuction, Aqualyx fat removal offers an exclusive non-surgical way to remove fat and excess skin. It works using a solution that dissolves fat which the body can naturally flush out. Aqualyx can be used for both the face and body, though when used to treat jowls, even just one session can dramatically reduce fat deposits and return a more defined facial contour. As the fat can be removed by your body naturally, this treatment is a safe and effective way to get rid of jowls. We offer Aqualyx fat removal to treat jowls across Northern Ireland, Guernsey, Jersey and Belfast.

Ultracel Hifu

By stimulating the growth of collagen, the protein that promotes firmer skin, we can help remove jowls. This procedure uses a combination of focused ultrasound HIFU and radiofrequency to lift the skin. The waves cause the muscle layer to contract, which then triggers the production of fresh collagen. This treatment will leave you with the feeling of firmer, younger-looking skin almost instantly. Visit our Ultracel treatments here at the Aesthetic skin clinic to learn more about this solution to removing jowls.
