A Guide on How to Get Rid of Jowls
Jowls – the drooping fat that frames the chin, towards the corners of the mouth – can be incredibly difficult to shift, but is also one of the main effects of ageing. The loss of volume and elasticity within the skin can have a great impact on the overall shape and aesthetic of our face, and can cause self-consciousness.
While there are many different claims out there to get rid of jowls, it is important to do your research and understand exactly how these treatments aim to target the unwanted fat.
Here is a useful guide on the three top treatments PHI Clinic, London, offers for jowls:
Harnessing the most advanced ultrasound technology on the market, Ultherapy is an FDA-cleared, non-invasive treatment that has proven lifting capabilities. Most patients require just one treatment on an annual basis, some may even just have the one session and feel an adequate change. The device works by stimulating collagen production, right down in the dermis. Some patients start noticing the effects of treatment relatively soon after their session, but guidelines state that optimal results are tangible from the 2-3 month stage. Results will continue to show, due to the nature of the collagen stimulus.

Performed only by our leading UK injectable doctors, Dr Tapan Patel and his team, PHI Clinic offers cutting-edge dermal filler treatment that targets problem areas holistically.
The idea being that for jowling, rather than adding extra volume and weighing it down further, by injecting strategic points on the face (also referred to as the 8 Point Lift or ‘non-surgical facelift’), provides restored volume and restructuring, having a knock-on affect on the jowls.Using only the Juvéderm VYCROSS ranges from Allergan, results are not permanent, but last between 12-18 months.
The winning combination of radiofrequency and microneedling means that Infini is a desirable skin tightening treatment amongst our patients. Most will require between 1-3 sessions of treatment to see a result, and the collagen production means that the facial skin is lifted and jowls become less prominent.
In order to determine which treatment avenue is best for your particular indication – if any – and to draw up a personalised treatment plan, we require all new patients have a consultation with one of our highly-skilled practitioners or clinicians. There, your medical history, expectations from treatment and plan of action will be discussed and anaylsed by your assigned clinician.
Following your consultation, a member of our dedicated team can assist you in scheduling treatment and any follow-up appointments you may require. We have a plethora of literature and advice we can offer to all our patients, so you will never feel unprepared or uninformed during your treatment with us at PHI Clinic.
