As we age, heavier and sagging skin can develop along the lower jawline, which is what is commonly referred to as jowls.
Jowls can be caused by a variety of factors, including natural ageing and loss of skin elasticity, weight loss and gravitational movement of natural fat tissue in the face. This can result in a loss of definition in the jawline or cheeks, and can cause the area to lose its youthful definition.
Generally, jowls begin to appear as we hit our 40’s, but some people can experience sagging cheek skin earlier. If approached early in their development, jowls can be successfully treated.
