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.

The staff are so friendly and professional. I’m absolutely thrilled with my results and would highly recommend Clinetix to anybody.Pamela
I was warmly welcomed into the clinic. It was a very professional although relaxed atmosphere. I was immediately put at ease, offered a refreshment and shown to a seat. Thereafter, I was introduced to Dr Emma, this lady knows her stuff. I am also a person who is highly anxious regarding needles and pain. I was so confident in her skills and how my treatment plan was communicated to me I was brave enough to do everything. Guess what, virtually pain-free. I had a vast amount of work done. More than I ever imagined in one session. I had a great skin consultation also and purchased the recommended products. We all have budgets and there was by no means a high sales push. I did buy the treatments suggested and it was a large one of spend, however getting it all done in one day is far more beneficial – fewer nerves and an instant result. I would highly recommend this establishment and look forward to my return My aim was to look better but more importantly to feel better. The physical and psychological benefits are amazing!Angela
