According to the American Society for Dermatologic Surgery 68% of Americans struggle with a double chin. So, how do we define our jawlines?
What is Causing Our Weak Jawlines Well, we can be born with it...or, quite simply, it is part of the aging process. Our skin loses collagen and elastin throughout our bodies and bone is being reabsorbed as we get older. The chin structure simply fails to support our lower face. An aging face can begin to show wrinkles around the mouth area, jowls in the chin area, hanging skin under the chin and neck and wrinkles.
What Do Experts Suggest to Help Strengthen and Support a Sagging Jawline
Augmentation Surgery in the form of a chin implant, a face lift or a less invasive surgical lift called a thread lift. It is important to do your research and take the time to find a reputable, experienced doctor. There are risks and expenses associated with plastic surgery. You will need to prepare for recovery time, the health risks and the cost.
Injectables – Injection that destroys fat cells. A chemical is injected into problem area, then fat cells are naturally expelled through the lymphatic system.
Fillers – Dermal fillers can be used to define the chin area, improving the look of the profile.
Facial Exercises - After time, facial exercises can strengthen a saggy jaw line and build up the muscle to create a more tone appearance. It may not be a dramatic change however.
