How to Get Rid of Jowls With Fillers: Non-Surgical Remedies and Treatment

Feb 13, 2023


Jowls are a common cosmetic concern for many people as they age.

Jowls are caused by loose skin and muscle along the jawline and can make a person appear older or fatigued. Fortunately, several non-surgical treatments help reduce the appearance of jowls.

In this article, we will explore the best options for getting rid of jowls with dermal fillers, including non-surgical treatments that can provide quick and effective results.

Can Fillers Help With Sagging Jowls?

A person's age often determines when mid-face jowls will appear.

Yes, fillers can help with sagging jowls. Fillers are injectable substances used to add volume and smooth out wrinkles and creases in the skin.

When strategically placed in the jawline, fillers can help lift and tighten jowls, creating a more youthful and defined appearance. Fillers used for treating jowls include hyaluronic acid fillers and collagen-stimulating fillers. The results of filler treatments for jowls are usually temporary and may last for several months to a year.

How Long Do Fillers Last for Jowls?

Fillers can restore lost volume and eliminate mid-face jowls.

The longevity of fillers for jowls varies depending on the type of filler used, the target area (e.g., mid-face jowls), and the individual’s skin and metabolism.

On average, hyaluronic acid fillers can last for up to 12 months, while collagen-stimulating fillers can last for 12 months or more. Factors such as age, skin quality, lifestyle, and the amount of filler used can also impact how long the fillers last. It is important to note that fillers are not a permanent solution for sagging jowls and may need to be repeated in order to maintain the desired results.

How Do You Use Fillers to Lift Jowls?

Fillers lift jowls by giving volume to strategic areas along the jawline.

The filler is carefully placed in specific points to add volume and lift sagging skin and muscles, creating a more defined and youthful jawline. The process is performed by a licensed healthcare professional, typically a dermatologist or plastic surgeon, who uses a fine needle to inject the filler.

The treatment is typically done in a doctor’s office and takes 30 minutes or less. Fillers can be used alone or in combination with other cosmetic procedures, such as Botox or a facelift, to enhance the results.

Jowls and Sag: Injecting Dermal Fillers to Improve the Lower Face

Fillers can enhance the lower face and are an effective jowl treatment.

Dermal fillers are a popular non-surgical option for rejuvenating the lower face and reducing the appearance of jowls and sagging skin. The treatment involves injecting a small amount of a hyaluronic acid-based or collagen-stimulating filler into specific points along the cheek and jawline. The filler helps to add volume and lift sagging skin, creating a more youthful and defined appearance.

Fillers work by restoring lost volume and smoothing out wrinkles and creases in the skin. When strategically placed in the lower face, fillers can help to create a more defined jawline and enhance the cheekbones, resulting in a more youthful and revitalised appearance. The results of filler treatments are usually immediate, and patients can often return to their normal activities right after the procedure.

Can Fillers Get Rid of Jowls? How to Fix Mild, Moderate, and Severe Jowls

Yes, fillers can eliminate mild and moderate jowls without falling under the knife.

Fillers can help reduce the appearance of jowls and improve the contours of the lower face. The effectiveness of fillers in treating jowls depends on several factors, including the severity of the jowls and the individual’s skin and muscle structure.

For mild jowls, fillers can provide a noticeable improvement in the appearance of the lower face by adding volume and lifting sagging skin. Moderate jowls may require more filler to achieve the desired results, while severe jowls may not be fully corrected with fillers alone. In these cases, a combination of filler treatments and other cosmetic procedures, such as a surgical facelift, may be necessary to achieve the best results.

Can You Use Fillers for Mild Jowls?

Yes, fillers can be used for mild jowls and help your body build new collagen.

Injectable fillers can help to add volume and lift sagging skin, reducing the appearance of mild jowls and improving the contours of the lower face.

It’s important to note that the type of filler used can also impact the effectiveness of the treatment. Different types of fillers have varying consistencies and lifting capabilities, and a doctor can help determine the best type of filler for your specific needs and goals.

In addition to the immediate results, fillers can also increase collagen levels, resulting in longer-lasting improvements in the appearance of mild jowls. However, it’s important to keep in mind that the results of filler treatments are not permanent, and touch-up treatments may be needed to maintain the desired appearance.

Fillers and Skin Tightening Treatments for Moderate Jowls

Moderate jowls can often be treated with a combination of fillers and skin-tightening treatments.

Fillers can help to add volume and lift sagging skin, reducing the appearance of jowls and enhancing the contours of the lower face. Skin tightening treatments, such as laser procedures or radiofrequency (RF) treatments, can help raise collagen levels, tighten and firm the skin, and reduce the appearance of moderate jowls.

The type and combination of treatments will depend on the individual’s specific needs and goals. A consultation with a doctor can help determine the best options for improving moderate jowls and developing a personalised treatment plan.

About Your Filler Bumps and Contour Problems

Filler bumps and contour problems can be frustrating and detract from the desired results.

Filler bumps can occur due to improper injection techniques, such as injecting the filler too deeply or injecting too much in one area, causing an accumulation of product. They can also result from the use of substandard or counterfeit fillers, which may have a different consistency or formulation than what is expected.

Contour problems can result from the filler being placed in the wrong location or in an amount that distorts the natural contours of the face. This can result in a “lumpy” or “uneven” appearance that detracts from the desired outcome.

Hence, you must choose a qualified and experienced healthcare professional to perform filler injections to minimise the risk of complications and ensure the best results. In the case of filler bumps or contour problems, a doctor can assess the issue and determine the best course of action, which may include dissolving the filler with an enzyme, adding additional filler to correct the issue, or waiting for the filler to naturally dissolve over time.

How to Get Rid of Jowls: 4 Treatments for 4 Stages of Sagging Skin

Knowing the severity of your jowls allows you to get the right treatment and optimal results.

Early signs of jowls: Dermal filler and Botox

At the early stages of jowls, non-invasive treatments such as dermal filler or Botox can be used to plump up the skin and give it a more youthful appearance. Dermal fillers can be used to add volume to both the cheeks and jawline, while Botox can be used to relax the muscles that cause sagging skin.

Moderate jowls: Dermal filler, Botox, and microneedling

A combination of non-invasive and minimally invasive treatments may be recommended for moderate jowls. This can include dermal fillers, Botox in London, and microneedling. Microneedling is a procedure that involves using tiny needles to create microscopic injuries to the skin, which can help to boost collagen production and improve the overall appearance of the skin.

Advanced jowls: Facelift and Neck Lift

At this stage, a single treatment, such as a surgical facelift or a neck lift, can help. Facelifts involve removing excess skin and fat from the face and neck. In contrast, neck lifts specifically address sagging skin on the neck.

Severe jowls: Surgically remove excess skin

A combination of plastic surgery (facelift and neck lift) with other procedures, such as a brow lift or eyelid plastic surgery, may be recommended for severe jowls. This can help address not only the jowls but also other areas of the face that have begun to sag, such as the forehead and upper eyelids.

Get Rid of Face Jowls: The Top Treatments

Thanks to modern technology, there are now many treatment options you can choose from.

Morpheus8 (Microneedling With Radio-Frequency)

Morpheus8 is a minimally invasive cosmetic treatment that combines microneedling with radiofrequency energy.

It rejuvenates the skin and improves various signs of ageing. The treatment uses fine needles to create microscopic punctures in the skin, which triggers the body’s natural healing response. This stimulates the production of collagen and elastin, two important proteins that help to firm and tighten the skin.

At the same time, radiofrequency energy is delivered through the needles, which heats the deeper layers of skin, further stimulating collagen production and promoting skin tightening. Morpheus8 is often used to treat a variety of skin concerns, including fine lines and wrinkles, sagging skin, and mild to moderate jowls.

Ultherapy for Sagging Jowls

Ultherapy uses ultrasound technology to lift and tighten the skin on the face and neck, including the jowls.

The treatment works by delivering ultrasound energy to the deeper layers of the skin, stimulating the production of collagen and elastin, two important proteins that help to firm and tighten the skin.

The procedure is performed using a handheld device that delivers the ultrasound technology to the treatment area. The device is equipped with an imaging system that allows the healthcare professional to see the underlying soft tissue and target the energy precisely where it is needed.

Dermal Fillers

Dermal fillers are made of various materials, including hyaluronic acid and calcium hydroxyapatite

They are injectable cosmetic treatments that add facial volume and smooth out wrinkles, fine lines, and other signs of ageing.

Dermal fillers are designed to enhance specific areas of the face, such as the cheeks, lips, chin, jaw, and under the eyes, so they can help eliminate jowls.


Botox involves injecting a small amount of botulinum toxin into the muscles of the face to relax them temporarily.

Doing this helps smooth nasolabial folds and marionette lines, particularly around the eyes and forehead. It can also help eliminate jowls and restore a more youthful, rested appearance.


FACEtite uses radiofrequency energy to tighten and contour the skin on the face and neck.

It works by heating the underlying tissue, stimulating collagen production, and tightening the skin.

FACEtite is often used to treat mild to moderate sagging skin on the face and neck and reduce the appearance of jowls. The procedure can produce dramatic results, with patients often seeing a significant improvement in the contour and tightness of their skin.

Patient Story

A patient who had a non-surgical treatment done by Dr. Julian De Silva in London.

This woman was in her early 40s when she came to me. She felt self-conscious about the changes in her face that came with ageing. These issues include sagging in the middle and lower third of her face and a decline in skin quality.

She was also nervous about undergoing any cosmetic treatments, as she had never had any before. However, her profession required her to interact with others daily, so she wanted to improve her appearance.

Thanks to advances in cosmetic treatments, this patient could change her look without going under the knife.

The Phi-Lift, a non-surgical facelift offered at my clinic, offered her a personalised solution to rejuvenate her appearance without having to go through surgery or the recovery period that comes with more invasive procedures.

After seeing the results, she was impressed by the improvement in her look. As you can see in the post-treatment photo, the patient has smoother cheeks, better skin quality, lifted jowls, and less visible facial lines. The patient was extremely pleased with the outcome. She even said that she couldn’t believe that she got her youth back.

This video covers jowls and the many factors that cause them, including genetics, ageing, and gravity.

I also go over the most common treatments that eliminate jowls, including non-surgical treatments like dermal fillers and jawline skin tightening (radiofrequency, ultrasound, thermal techniques).

Dermal fillers put around the cheeks can lift the area, and a small amount put on the jaw can hide early jowls.

Kylie Minogue’s Fillers

Kylie revealed that she experimented with Botox and fillers.

The famous pop star had a natural oval shape. In an effort to maintain this, she had fillers in her cheeks.

But it looks like Kylie had too much. When one gets cheek fillers, the nasolabial line will likely be smooth because you naturally stretch the face. But because Kylie had so much filler, the result made a wrong turn. As you can see in the picture, her nasolabial line became prominent, which made her look older.

On top of that, it affected how her jowls and eyes looked since the filler took a lot of attention away from her beautiful eyes.
