Jowls

Non Surgical Treatment options for loose or sagging jowls include Dermal Filler and Sculptra.

The best approach is a gradual one restoring lost volume in a natural way, staged way.

As we age our natural hyaluronic acid is reduced and lines and wrinkles begin to appear.

Dermal fillers such as Juvederm and Restylane are hyaluronic acid and can be used to improve lines, lift scars, add volume and hydrate the skin.

Dermal fillers can be used to treat many areas including:

  • Crows feet
  • Lip lines
  • Frown lines
  • Smile lines
  • Marionette lines
  • Oral commissures
  • Skin rehydration on face, décolletage, hands
  • Cheek volumising
  • Tear troughs
  • Hollow temples

“It’s amazing the results that can be achieved using tiny amounts of dermal filler; we can lift and subtly replace lost volume .”

Dermal Fillers

At Harley Court cosmetic clinics we prescribe only 2 ranges of carefully chosen dermal fillers. With currently over a hundred fillers on the market we use only products that are approved, regulated and, we believe the best in their field- Juvederm® and Restylane® Emervel®.

These are prescribed individually for you following a thorough consultation and discussion regarding your concerns.

They are designed to hydrate and restore lost volume to the skin. They contain hyaluronic acid, a naturally occurring substance found in the body.

The results are immediate and long lasting.

Generally the effects last 6-9 months but this is dependant on the individual and area being treated.

Typically you may find that initially more product is needed and as time passes treatments become less frequent.

Juvederm and Restylane costs start from £250.

Prices are determined by the areas that you wish to be treated

Downtime

No downtime and you can go back to your daily activities immediately. The effects of the treatment will be seen instantly.

Sculptra

Sculptra is a long lasting option that helps to add the volume back to the face that has deflated with age.

An older face will show a loss of the fullness of the cheeks, temples, the lips and area around the mouth and will show fat loss under the eyes which creates a hollow effect.

Where there used to be light, now there are shadows.

By replacing the volume loss, you reverse the creation of shadow and restore the reflection of light and the appearance of youth, energy and vibrance.

This volume replacement fills the skin so that it is lifted by the formation of your body’s own collagen – collagen that was created in surrounding the microscopic particles that make up.

What is it and how does it work?

Sculptra is made of poly L lactic acid (PLLA), a synthetic biodegradable polymer that is both resorbable and bio compatible.

PLLA has been widely used for many years in dissolvable sutures so it’s compatibility with the body is proven.

Sculptra is not a wrinkle filler, but a volumiser.

It works by stimulating the body to produce new collagen at the sites of injection, thereby replacing lost volume and contours to restore a fuller, more youthful appearance.

What does the treatment involve?

Each treatment consists of a few injections to the areas to be volumised, the cheek, temple, jawline.

Usually 3 or 4  treatment sessions are required to get the desired effect.

The product is administered with local anaesthesia and the discomfort is minimal.

As with all other injections there can be temporary swelling and bruising. Otherwise, there is no ‘downtime’.

Duration of effects

The lasting effects of Sculptra™ vary from patient to patient, however studies have shown that some Sculptra™ patients have seen results last up to or greater than two years from the first treatment.

Periodic touch up treatments will maintain the desired effects.

Areas suitable for treatment with Sculptra

  • Cheeks
  • Nose to mouth lines
  • Temples
  • Jowls
