The formation of Jowls is one of the earliest obvious signs of the ageing face and is often what brings people to an aesthetic clinic.  It effects Men and Women and typically it is more noticeable from the 40’s onwards but we also see it developing in younger patients.  It’s caused by skin and fat drooping lower as we get older and contributes to shadows around the mouth.

Jowl treatments are performed in our Glasgow and Bothwell clinics by our Medical Team led by Dr’s Simon and Emma Ravichandran or by our expert aesthetic therapists dependent on the treatment performed.


The main reason we develop jowls is because of volume loss and descent in the face.  The best treatment for early jowl formation is to replace the volume with dermal filler injections in the areas of loss.  If there is loose skin contributing to the jowls this can be addressed with skin tightening treatments such as IPL or Laser.  The effects of treatment can sometime be enhanced by defining the jawline with dermal fillers and wrinkle relaxing injections.

Frequently Asked Questions

What about thread lifts?

Thread lifts are one treatment for jowls and can be performed either alone or together with other treatments.  Thread lifts are a temporary treatment and sometimes it is better to perform a small facelift rather than a thread lift.  Your doctor will discuss the pro’s and con’s off all the treatments at your consultation.

Can you treat all Jowls?

We can treat all jowls but results will vary, the more pronounced the jowls the less likely you will get a satisfactory result from non-surgical techniques.  If you need a facelift or a neck lift procedure we will advice you accordingly and refer you on to our surgical partners.
