Dermal Fillers – Marionette lines (jowls)/corners of the mouth

While a lot of patients mistake putting on weight as the cause of a rounder, jowl-like appearance to the lower face, it is in fact a result of premature ageing, but it is easy to get this confused. As we age, our skin can start to sag as we lose the youthful elasticity and volume to our skin. With collagen and elastin levels depleting, the signs of ageing swiftly set in, including wrinkles, fine lines and marionette lines also.  A more youthful, defined facial structure can be restored with the help of hyaluronic acid-based dermal fillers here at North West Aesthetics.

Our experts can effectively tighten and lift sagging skin without the need for more surgical alternatives, which is ideal for patients who lack the funds to afford such costly procedures and who possess an understandable reluctance to go under the knife. As a temporary treatment, the risk of being stuck with undesirable results is eliminated with dermal filler treatments, although we have confidence that you will simply love the results from your bespoke treatment at our clinic. As an added bonus, dermal fillers boost your body’s natural collagen in the treated area, too.

Wrinkle relaxing injections are also a possible treatment for lower face laxity, and can be used in conjunction with dermal fillers.

Frequently asked questions

Depending on the severity of your facial sagging and the size of the treatment area in question, varying amounts of filler are required per patient, meaning that the cost of treatment does often differ slightly. In general, the cost falls at around £130-£200, with an exact price being determined during your consultation.

The aim is to define your facial structure by restoring lost volume and shape for a more flattering, youthful appearance. By injecting just beneath the surface of the skin, the surrounding tissue can be plumped out to achieve the desired outcome. Collagen and elastin levels are also boosted as a result of the hyaluronic acid within the fillers themselves, promoting radiant, youthful skin.

You can expect a tighter, structured appearance to the lower face, with almost immediate results post-treatment. Be patient as your results take time to settle and heal over the course of 2 weeks, after which you'll be able to see the best results.

Dermal fillers off the jowls take no longer than 30 minutes, including a prior consultation. This allows the procedure to fit nicely into your daily routine.

You likely need just the one treatment to achieve the results your desire, although many patients return for repeat treatments in order to maintain these results. This is because dermal fillers are non-permanent and only tend to last for around 9-12 months.

Dermal fillers require absolutely no downtime. You can return to your daily routine with immediate effect, which is ideal for those of us with a busy schedule!

Severe side effects are very few and far between, with only mild bruising, swelling and redness to look out for in most cases. In just 48 hours, this should have settled and healed, but if you have any immediate worries, do get in touch.

Dermal fillers are suitable for practically anyone, other than pregnant or breastfeeding women purely for safety reasons.
