Sagging Jowls? We have the perfect treatment combination!
Different anti-aging treatments affect various layers of dermis on our faces and necks. Sometimes, when we use two different treatments, targeting different depths of skin damage, the targeted areas get a more complete treatment that gives you faster results, and actually saves money in the long run.
When Your Jawline is Not as Tight as it Used to Be
The jawline is a hot topic these days and not without good reason. As we age, the underlying supporting structures of the skin lack support and the production of collagen decreases. The dermis and the Superficial Musculoaponeurotic System (SMAS) layers weaken resulting is skin laxity, wrinkles and the dreaded sagging jowls.
Of course, we want to keep our jawline looking defined and strong as we age.
Luckily, there are several non-invasive treatment options to help create a more defined, younger-looking jawline. Energy-based devices offer skin tightening that helps sculpt, tighten, and lift the jawline, while maintaining a natural appearance. And with none of the risks of surgery. Combining non-surgical treatments offer quicker results, with little to no downtime.
Options for Jawline Treatments
As a successful dual treatment, I recommend both Radiofrequency (RF) Microneedling and High Intensity Focused Ultrasound (HIFU) to achieve a sculpted jawline lift. RF Microneedling creates both physical and thermal stress in the dermis, which stimulates the body’s natural healing response. The results are a proliferation of growth factors, and production of new, strong collagen to lift, tighten and firm the skin.
HIFU works on deeper levels of the skin than RF, targeting the SMAS layer. This is the layer that is tightened up during a surgical facelift. HIFU remodels and rebuilds the weakened SMAS layer to give the skin back its support – with no surgery required!
Radiofrequency Microneedling with Vacuum Suction
The Radiofrequency Microneedling technique at Tint is unique in that it has an added vacuum suction. Treating the jawline can be tricky with its curves, and the vacuum suction aids in creating a secure contact between the skin and the Microneedling device. This combination offers a better result and a stable application. The vacuum suction also helps the microneedles to penetrate evenly into the skin at the chosen depth, allowing for uniform heating from the radiofrequency and stimulating instant contraction of collagen to tighten and define the jawline.
HIFU to Lift, Tighten and Firm the Jawline
A HIFU “facelift” creates deep, focused points of energy in the dermis and SMAS layers to lift and tighten the skin. The results can be immediate for an instant jawline lift. As the body responds to these treated areas, the skin begins to tighten more over time, and the results continue to improve for up to 12 weeks post treatment.
Targeting Excess Fat Around the Jawline
It’s not just skin laxity around the jawline that we need to target, however. We also need to treat the excess fat. For facial treatments, specific HIFU cartridges are used to deliver heat burst directly to the fat cells. This triggers apoptosis (cell death) and eradicates unwanted double chins and sagging jowls. The result, clients will see a real lifting, firming, and tightening of the jaw area.
Combining These Two Treatments is the Answer
Together, RF Microneedling and HIFU offer a powerful solution to sagging jowls and redefining the jawline to give you a younger, natural look.
This example of using dual technology offers increased comfort during the treatments with minimal to no downtime, and superior results for a tighter, higher, younger looking jawline.
