As one of the most popular non-surgical cosmetic procedures in the world, Botox is now being used for a whole host of things, some of which you might not even realise. Traditionally used to smooth out fine lines and wrinkles, you can also now use Botox for excess sweating, migraines and saggy skin.
There is now another new topic in the world of Botox which is taking Hollywood by storm. It’s called the Nefertiti Lift and involves injecting Botox along the jawline to alter the shape of the face with the aim of getting a youthful look and a defined jawline.
Botox for Sagging Jowls
Your jowls are the lower part of your cheeks and are not commonly a body part attributed to looking older. However, it is becoming more common for people to receive Botox in their jawline to reduce the signs of aging.
While Botox is more commonly known for being popular as a treatment in areas such as the forehead, there is a popular view that the jowls are the part of the face which are deemed to be the focus when people consider how old you might look.
According to some studies, the first thing a person generally looks at when determining someone’s age is the shape of their face, rather than lines or wrinkles. It is for this reason that Botox for the jawline and jowls is becoming more popular.
As we age, gravity starts to take effect. Combine that with other factors such as muscle weakness and loss of elasticity, then you tend to see our jowls start to droop.
When applied to the jawline, Botox relaxes the muscles known as the Platysma muscle which can help to prevent the jawline from being pulled down. When Botox is applied to the specific nerves around this area, it can lead to a visibly lifted jaw line.
It is important however to point out that the efficacy of this procedure depends heavily on the individual. While it may seem to work wonders for one person, if the next has much droopier skin or is a lot older the results may be less obvious. There are a variety of factors that could determine how well this procedure works, from weight to age so it is always wise to have a consultation with us first.
