Losing your crisp jawline can show your age like nothing else, but because it happens gradually, it is hard to recognise it yourself. This is a very common condition that occurs with aging, and results from a combination of skin laxity and volume loss. Underlying changes in the skin, such as less collagen production and weakened collagen fibers, are major contributing factors to jowl formation. Beginning in a person’s late twenties, the body starts to lose volume in the form of fat, muscle and bone. The cheeks and cheekbones are the support structure of the face and as we lose volume, our cheeks flatten and our skin sags, particularly in the lower face, causing unwanted jowls.
