The term "jowls" is used to describe the sagging skin below your chin or jawline.
You can prevent sagging jowls by avoid smoking, limiting exposure to the sun, and limit time on your screen; using computers and phones can cause the skin around your neck to lose elasticity, named the “tech neck”.
The biggest cause of jowls is ageing. Almost everyone develops at least minor jowls as they age, this is because the skin in your cheeks and below your jawline loses collagen and elastin over the years.
The skin often becomes drier and thinner, making it difficult to maintain its form. Not only this, but other factors such as stress and repetitive facial habits cause sagging skin.
When applied to the jawline, Dermal Fillers will relax the muscles and tighten the skin, which helps prevent the jawline from being pulled down.
