about jowls

Did you know that jowls aren’t always the result of sagging skin? Sometimes bone loss and/or collagen loss on the jawline near the chin makes the area next to it look like it’s sagging lower than the rest of the jawline. Sometimes it’s a combination of bone loss and sagging skin, and a physician or PA with an artist’s eye and knowledge of the anatomy can best reclaim that natural-looking, youthful jawline.

During the assessment, you can expect to discuss what Dr. Karlsberg or Michele suspects as the cause of your jowl prominence. After considering the cause, the provider will then decide if a filler, such as Juvederm or Bellafill, should be used to even out the jawline or if a skin-tightening treatment, like THERMItight, is the answer for you. Together, you can determine which treatment or combination of treatments is right for you. Click a treatment below for more information.
