Don’t Give an Inch to Gravity
Jowls and jawlines are one of the first areas of the face to succumb to the effects of gravity as we age.
That’s thanks to the depletion over time of collagen, elastin and other proteins which give the skin its natural elasticity – resulting in poor definition, hanging skin and a ‘jowly’ appearance.
Under the guidance of clinical director and cosmetic surgeon Dr Benji Dhillon, Define Clinic offers a way to reverse the signs of ageing around the jaw and jowls without resorting to surgery.
The answer lies in dermal fillers – a non-invasive injectable treatment that replaces those lost ingredients with hyaluronic acid (HA) – a safe volumising agent found naturally in the skin.
Applied strategically around the jaw, dermal fillers can achieve a whole host of defining and volumising improvements.
Fillers bring the jaw into more natural proportions and harmony with the rest of the face by correcting imbalances and redefining contours.
The finished completed effect is down to you. Some patients use filler to achieve a chiselled or sculpted look, while others prefer softer, more feminine aesthetics.
Jowls are the sagging skin beneath the chin and jaw – and one of the most obvious signs of ageing.
Fortunately, they’re also easy to treat with firming and tightening dermal fillers.
Fillers provide vital support and volume to the connective tissue which loosens as it loses elasticity with age, creating a rejuvenated, defined and more youthful appearance.
Whether as part of a fuller facial rejuvenation treatment or standalone procedure, dermal fillers represent the ultimate non-surgical solution to jowls and folds around the jawline.

Not usually. Some patients experience mild bruising or swelling after their injection, but this usually subsides in a day or two. You can mitigate some of the risks of bruising by avoiding anti-inflammatory painkillers like aspirin, ibuprofen and naproxen.
