If you have loose, sagging skin below your jawline, you have loose jowls. Loose jowls are sometimes confused with a double chin, but the conditions are different. A double chin occurs from excess fat under the jawline, while loose jowls are the results of sagging skin on the jawline.
Allura Skin, Laser & Wellness Clinic in Fort Collins and Loveland offers a number of treatments to get rid of loose jowls without surgery. Consider the suggested treatments below and feel free to contact us with any questions you may have or to schedule a free consultation.
Loose jowls are an unflattering result of – you guessed it – aging! As we age, our ability to produce elastin and collagen decreases, causing skin to sag and droop. Some people are genetically predisposed to getting loose jowls, getting them as early as their twenties, while others just don’t have to deal with them. Lifestyle factors can also contribute to the condition, such as smoking or even excessive screen time (“tech neck”). Fortunately, there are multiple treatments for loose jowls that do not require going under the knife!
