What is a Jowl?
Jowl is the fat deposition under the chin. Genetic factors, aging or weight gain generally cause fat deposition or loss of elasticity in the area under the chin, making the person look older. The most common form is the deposition of fat under the chin (double chin), which is known as jowl among the people. This excess fat and loss of elasticity under the chin causes distortion of the facial oval.
Which applications are effective in jowl rendering?
One of the systems that are successful in correcting the appearance of the jowl or double chin, is CoolMini application with CoolSculpting, which freezes and reduces the fat cells. Another application is to inject fat-dissolving deoxycholic acid into the area through mesotherapy. In addition, Ulthera and truSculpt iD are other technological applications that contribute to tighten and shape the facial oval, especially if there is sagging in the jowl area. Determining which application will be beneficial for the patient is the most important step of the treatment.
