Sagging & Weak Jawline Treatment

Sagging jawline (sometimes referred to as jowls) is one of the most common lower face complaints that motivate women to come to an aesthetic clinic.

There are a number of underlying causes that lead to the appearance of saggy skin along the chin and jawline: facial ageing; gravitational changes; loss of fat in the upper cheek; shrinkage of the jaw and chin bone.

Because there are so many possible causes at play, there are a number of treatment options that can be used to tackle the problem.

Techniques for Restoring Definition of the Jawline

The objective of these treatments is to restore definition and enhance the contour and shape of the lower face, thus giving you the overall appearance you desire. We will advise you on the best procedure or treatment for your specific needs.

The techniques used for each procedure can range from jawline filler treatment to surgical treatments with local anaesthetic and minimal downtime that have much more extensive results.

Non-Surgical Jaw Contouring Treatments:

We offer a variety of different non-surgical treatments for jowls that can be used individually or collaboratively with other treatment options. For natural-looking non-surgical jaw enhancement in Glasgow, we have a solution for you.

Our non-surgical treatments for jowls, sagging skin or a weak jawline include:

Thread Lift

A thread lift is a less invasive way to lift the jowls than a full facelift.

Although threads have become very popular again in recent years, the effects can be limited and patient selection is absolutely key. The thread lift procedure is better suited to younger women in their late 30s or early 40s where the jowl formation is minimal.

Cheek Filler

There are many treatment techniques when it comes to using filler injections to improve the jaw area. We use Juvederm for each dermal filler treatment and the results differ from Botox significantly. One of the key differences is that filler lasts longer.

This cheek filler treatment using hyaluronic acid restores volume loss in the cheek and mid-face area, which can in turn help to improve the appearance of the jowls and jawline area and give your skin a more youthful appearance.

Chin Filler

As we age, the chin gets smaller. We use chin filler injections to improve the projection of the chin, which can also lead to an improvement in the appearance of the entire jawline.

If you are aiming to regain the strong jawline and lower face shape of your youth, this filler treatment can assist with that. We are experts when it comes to jawline fillers in Glasgow.

Wrinkle Filler

To enhance your skin in a natural-looking way, you can use wrinkle filler injections where you have wrinkles forming around your chin and jaw.

Sometimes injecting filler along the jawline directly in front of the jowl — in an area known as the ‘pre-jowl sulcus’ — can help to camouflage the appearance of sagging along the chin and jawline.

Energy Based Skin Tightening

Using heat energy to stimulate the deepest layers of the skin to contract and tighten is a more recent option. The most effective energy system we have tried in our clinic is called Profound RF, which delivers radio frequency to the deeper parts of the skin for accurate and controlled collagen stimulation that can deliver impressive results.

The effects of this are not as good as a surgical treatment, however, it is a good option for people who wish to achieve improvement in their jawline but are unwilling to undergo surgery.

Unlike jawline fillers, this is a once-off treatment and patients usually start seeing results in the chin and jaw area after about a month. The results of this procedure improve over the next 6 months, giving your jawline, skin and overall appearance the refresh and definition that you desire without the need for jawline filler.

Surgical Jaw Contouring Treatments:

While jawline filler treatments and skin tightening along the chin and jaw area can significantly improve the appearance of the lower face, the most impressive and efficient results are usually found in a surgical procedure that targets not just the jawline, but the whole face.

Our surgical treatment options for jawline contouring include:


Facelift surgery is the classic, definitive treatment for the improvement of sagging along the jawline. The procedure involves tightening the loose muscles along the jaw and removing loose skin from the jawline to create a more defined appearance.

Unlike a jawline filler treatment, this is a once-off procedure with results that last.
