Various factors can cause the skin beneath the jawline to sag, droop, or loosen as we age. The aging process diminishes collagen and elastin, and bone mass, muscle mass and the fat held directly beneath the skin can also be lost. Genetics also play a role in this common issue as does weight gain and ageing in general.
At The Cosmetic Clinic we treat the area much like other problem areas of the face when it comes to sagging or loose skin. Dermal fillers can help to lift, firm, tone, and support the muscle and elastin definition.
