An At Home Treatment for Sagging Jowls - Lift Saggy Jowls without Surgery

What are 'jowls'?

‘Jowls’ is the term used to describe sagging and loose skins that form beneath the jawline.

They can also affect the appearance of the cheeks.

They typically cause the face to look older and less defined as they reduce the sharpness of the jaw line.

What causes ‘jowls’?

Jowls occur as we get older, and the skin loses its elasticity. It’s generally a part of the natural ageing process, and they can be difficult to avoid.

That being said, there are some additional factors that could contribute to the development of jowls, and may make them more prominent.

Sun damage can contribute to the deterioration of elasticity in the skin, as well as genetic factors that come into play also.

A lack of skincare, as well as consistent weight fluctuations can also have an effect on your jowls.

Can you treat jowls without surgery?

The good news is, yes! You can treat jowls without surgery, and we’ve compiled the best nonsurgical treatments for jowls throughout this blog.

Using microcurrent for jowls

One of the most effective, and easiest solutions for jowls, is the use of a microcurrent device like the ZIIP HALO.

Microcurrent devices use microcurrent to stimulate the muscles into contracting and relaxing, tightening the skin over time.

The ZIIP HALO uses patented technology to combine microcurrent and nanocurrent to give both instant and long-lasting results.

The nanocurrent element of the ZIIP mimics the electrical impulses of the brain that slow with age, and facilitate the growth and repair of the cells, as well as the production of collagen.

The ZIIP also improves your lymphatic drainage, reducing puffiness in the face, leaving a more sculpted appearance.

Leading electrical esthetician, Melanie Simon, even created a bespoke jowl treatment conducted through the ZIIP Beauty App.

Taking only 3 minutes, the treatment enhances and lifts your lower facial features, using medium to strong vibrations.

Completing this treatment regularly will leave you with a tightened skin around the chin, jaw and mouth area, reducing the appearance of jowls.

Alternative non-surgical remedies for jowls

1. Facial Exercises

Regular facial exercises can be good for reducing your jowls.

Opening your mouth widely as if you’re yawning, and then closing your mouth slowly without putting your teeth together is a great method for strengthening the muscles around your mouth, preventing jowls.

Another exercise is to puff out your cheeks to full capacity and hold it for as long as comfortable and then slowly release.

Ensuring this becomes part of your daily routine is key in training the muscles around the face, and reducing the appearance of jowls.

2. Gua Sha Massages

Using a gua sha as part of your regular routine can also be key in reducing the appearance of jowls.

Gently massaging the face using the gua sha can aid lymphatic drainage, reducing swelling and puffiness and helping the jaw remain defined.

Instilling any of these things into your daily skincare routine is the best route forward to targeting your jowls. Try and test out these methods to find the best solution for you.
