When sagging jowls first appear, it can make you feel a little discouraged. You view it as a sure sign that you’re getting old.
But did you know that there are a variety of treatments available that can turn back the hands of time and rejuvenate your complexion? Well, there are, and they’re all available from Dr. Schalit.
What Causes Sagging Jowls?
The term “jowls” refers to a specific type of sagging skin that occurs around the jawline.
Most people develop them as they age because of changes in the structure of their facial tissues. As you get older, the skin around the jaw thins and becomes less elastic. This loss of elasticity leads to the characteristic sagging and fat accumulation that we call jowls.
Some people with thick skin or lots of collagen do not develop jowls, no matter their age. Others are able to void them with healthy lifestyle choices. However, most people will develop sagging jowls over time.
Neck Rejuvenation Treatments
Dr. Schalit offers a range of neck rejuvenation treatments to get rid of sagging jowls.
A neck lift – sometimes called platysmaplasty – is a surgical procedure designed to reverse the signs of aging in the neck area. Dr. Schalit makes an incision at the chin’s base and then uses this opening to tighten muscles, skin, and connective tissue in the submental area. After the procedure, the prominence of jowls appears reduced, and your face takes on a more youthful appearance.
Facelifts involve making an incision from the temple area to behind the ears and then pulling the skin tighter. Dr. Schalit will also tighten facial muscles and redistribute subcutaneous fat where necessary. These procedures’ combined effect reduces jowls’ prominence and makes a face appear rounder and more youthful.
Ultherapy® is a non-surgical alternative to facelifts and neck lifts for improving jowls and tighten the neckline. It uses the power of ultrasound to stimulate the skin’s collagen production, encouraging it to firm up and behave more youthfully.

Benefits of Neck Rejuvenation
So what are the benefits of neck rejuvenation with Dr. Schalit? Here’s what you can expect.
- Smoother skin: All of the therapies discussed above improve jowling and skin smoothness. Lines and wrinkles appear reduced, making you look younger.
- Reduction in excess skin: Jowls can sometimes make you look like you have too much skin. Neck rejuvenation removes this, thereby improving the shape of your face.
- Minimal scarring: Surgical procedures, when done correctly, leave minimal scarring. Dr. Schalit always keeps incisions as small as possible.
- Tighter underlying muscles: Surgical procedures can also tighten the face’s underlying muscles, improving its structure.
Am I a Candidate for Neck Treatments?
Because Ultherapy® uses sound technology, it is safe for most patients. Surgical procedures, however, require additional caution. Patients wanting neck lifts or facelifts need to be healthy and should not smoke for two weeks before the procedure and during the recovery period. The best way to determine your candidacy for neck rejuvenation treatments is to schedule a consultation with Dr. Schalit and his team of professionals.
