Volume-Loss Jowl Treatment Melbourne

Jowls are descending, heavy areas of facial skin in front of the jawline or below the skin, which usually appear as we age. The skin loses its elasticity and volume due to ageing, thus it projects downwards near the jawline and lower cheek area, resulting in the formation of jowls.

Volume treatments for jowls

Nitai Medical and Cosmetic Centre offers aesthetic facial treatments for volume loss in Melbourne to address jowls. It reduces the appearance of jowls by adding volume to the treated area. FDA and TGA-approved volume-loss jowl treatment, known as jowl fillers, also works by providing structural support and promoting collagen production.

Aesthetic facial treatments for volume loss can be administered in the pre-jowl sulcus to create a network of filler ingredients between the jowl and chin. The pre-jowl sulcus, also known as the pre-jowl depression or the marionette line, refers to a groove or indentation located on either side of your chin. If you have age-related volume loss in your lower face, this is more noticeable. By injecting jowl filler in this area, the appearance of jowls is reduced.

Volume-loss jowl treatment lasts approximately 12 to 18 months, depending on the type and quantity of jowl filler used. After the treatment, you will notice an increase in the volume of the treated area. Over time, as the filler ingredient settles and integrates with the surrounding tissues, it can help reduce the appearance of jowls.

Jowl treatment cost in Melbourne

The costs associated with jowl volume treatment may vary from patient to patient due to differences in facial anatomy, skin condition, and aesthetic goals. The following factors can influence the costs associated with the procedure:

  • Practitioner’s fee
  • Medical facility fee
  • Geographic location
  • Type and amount of filler
  • The size of the body area needing treatment

During the consultation period, Dr Shobhna Singh will provide a detailed breakdown of the potential costs associated with jowl aesthetic treatment.

What to expect during the treatment

A jowl treatment begins with a consultation with Dr Shobhna Singh. During this time, she will assess your overall health condition, facial anatomy, and expectations. Based on these assessments, she will develop a treatment plan specific to your needs.

Before jowl treatment, a numbing cream will be applied to the treatment area to minimise discomfort during the injection process. Once your skin is numb, the jowl filler will be injected strategically along your jawline and chin to address the jowl area. Dr Shobhna Singh may adjust the amount of filler used based on your individual needs. After each injection, she will monitor your response to the treatment and will make any necessary adjustments to ensure optimal results.

After the treatment, you will likely experience redness, swelling, and bruising at the injection sites. Depending on the degree of patient discomfort, Dr Shobhna Singh may prescribe medications and provide post-treatment instructions, such as the application of ice packs to the treated area.

Depending on the recommendation of Dr Shobhna Singh, you will be given instructions on when to return for your follow-up appointment. Make sure to adhere to the post-jowl treatment instructions once you get home.

Risk and Complications

While volume-loss jowl treatment is a non-surgical aesthetic method, it has risks and complications. These include the following:

  • Allergic reactions: Symptoms such as itchiness and breathing difficulties can occur as your body’s reaction to the filler ingredient.
  • Asymmetry: Jowl treatment cannot achieve perfect symmetry due to variations in tissue response to treatment.
  • Bruising: This can occur because the injection process can damage the blood vessels.
  • Granuloma formation: This localised inflammation can occur due to the body’s response to the filler material.
  • Infection: Infection can occur when microorganisms enter the injection sites after jowl treatment, which can cause fever and pus.
  • Migration or displacement of filler: Factors such as gravity, unnecessary muscle movements, or improper injection techniques can cause filler migration or displacement.
  • Nodule or lump formation: This can occur due to improper placement of filler or the body’s natural response to the filler ingredient.
  • Overcorrection or undercorrection: This can occur due to improper injection techniques during jowl treatment.
  • Rare but serious complications such as blindness: Improper injection techniques during jowl treatment can damage facial arteries which may affect blood flow to the retina of the eye.
  • Skin discolouration or pigmentation changes: Factors such as inflammation and severe bruising can lead to this.
  • Swelling: Damage to the blood vessels during the injection of the jowl filler can lead to swelling.
  • Vascular compromise or necrosis (tissue death): Vascular compromise refers to impaired blood circulation which can be caused by injection-induced blood vessel damage.

Dr Shobhna Singh will carefully assess your overall health to determine risks and other factors that can affect the outcome of jowl treatment. Based on these assessments, she will make necessary adjustments to your treatment plan.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are jowls?

Jowls are descending, heavy areas of facial skin in front of the jawline or below the skin, which usually appear as we age. The skin loses its elasticity and volume. Thus, it projects downwards near the jawline and lower cheek area, resulting in the formation of jowls. These jowls can affect the contour of the chin and jawline.

How to treat jowls?

There are many ways to treat jowls. One of these methods is the use of FDA-approved aesthetic facial treatments for volume loss. Undergoing a lower facelift can also address jowls. The procedure removes the loose skin in the lower areas of the face, which reduces the appearance of jowls.

A combination of muscle relaxants and anti-aging facial treatments for volume loss can also be used to provide a subtle lift to the skin and diminish the appearance of jowls.

How much is the cost of volume-loss jowl treatment?

At Nitai Clinic, the costs associated with volume-loss jowl treatment can be determined during the consultation. The costs associated with jowl filler treatment will depend on several factors, such as the practitioner’s fee, medical facility fee, the size of the body area needing treatment, and the type and amount of filler to be used.

Between 1 ml and 3 ml filler will be used to treat the jowls and the jawline. The jowl filler we use generally last between 18-24 months.
