Aging is a natural process that affects every part of our body, but it often becomes most visible on our face. Lower facial aging, which includes the jawline, chin, and neck areas, can significantly impact one’s overall appearance and self-confidence.

Let’s explore the causes of lower facial aging and discuss effective treatments available at our aesthetic medical practice to help you achieve a more youthful look.

Causes of Lower Facial Aging

1. Loss of Skin Elasticity:

As we age, our skin produces less collagen and elastin, which are essential for maintaining firmness and elasticity. This reduction leads to sagging skin, wrinkles, and a less defined jawline.

2. Volume Loss:

Fat pads in the face, which provide youthful contours, gradually diminish with age. This loss of volume can result in hollow cheeks, deep nasolabial folds, aging neck and jowls.

3. Bone Density Reduction:

The bones of the face, particularly the jawbone, undergo resorption over time. This structural change can cause the lower face to appear less defined and more prone to sagging.

4. Muscle Changes:

Over time, facial muscles can lose their tone and strength, contributing to the drooping appearance of the lower face.

5. Gravity and Lifestyle Factors:

Gravity continually pulls on our skin and tissues, exacerbating sagging.

Additionally, lifestyle choices such as smoking, poor diet, and excessive sun exposure can accelerate the aging process.

Effective Treatments for Lower Facial Aging

Here, at The Beverly Hills Sculptress, we offer a range of advanced treatments designed to address the signs of lower facial aging and restore a youthful appearance.

Here are some of our most effective options:

1. Dermal Fillers:

Injectable fillers, such as hyaluronic acid, can restore lost volume and smooth out wrinkles and folds. They are particularly effective in treating nasolabial folds, and marionette lines, and enhancing the jawline.

2. Ultrasound Skin Tightening:

Non-invasive ultrasound treatments, like Sofwave, stimulate collagen production deep within the skin, resulting in a firmer and more lifted appearance. This treatment is ideal for tightening the skin around the jawline and neck.

3. Laser Resurfacing:

Laser treatments can improve skin texture, reduce fine lines, and stimulate collagen production. This helps to rejuvenate the lower face by tightening the skin and enhancing its overall appearance. Our favorite is the BBL/Moxi Laser combined with SkinTyte.

4. Thread Lifts:

A thread lift is a minimally invasive procedure that uses dissolvable threads to lift and tighten sagging skin. It provides an immediate lifting effect and continues to improve skin quality as the threads stimulate collagen production.

5. Botox/Dysport/Daxxify:

While commonly associated with treating upper facial wrinkles, Botox can also be used in the lower face to relax overactive muscles and smooth out fine lines, providing a more youthful contour. Known as the Nefertiti lift, you can also achieve a more snatched jawline, and a longer, thinner neck with proper toxin placement in the platysmal bands. This is definitely a fan favorite!

6. Customized Skincare Regimens:

A tailored skincare routine, including products from The Beverly Hills Sculptress’s own unique medical grade skincare line, that promote collagen production, anti-aging, lightening/brightening, and skin hydration, can help maintain the results of aesthetic treatments and prevent further aging.
